Pathways Wrap: Round 8


St. George Illawarra Dragons 46 - 16 Western Suburbs Magpies

WIN Stadium, Wollongong 

Western Suburbs Magpies are still searching for their first win of the season after going down to a more experienced Dragons outfit on Sunday. 

The young Magpies side featuring just two players with NRL experience was outclassed, with the likes of Tyrell Sloan, Cody Ramsey and Jack Gosiewski all crossing for the home team. 

Young hooker Rua Ngatikaura scored a double for Wests, before unfortunately leaving the field with an ankle injury.  Scans on Monday confirmed it to be a fractured ankle, meaning he will miss the rest of the season.

The Magpies take on the 10th placed Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles this Saturday afternoon.


Wests Tigers 16 - 4 Central Coast Roosters 

Morry Breen Oval, Wyong 

Wests Tigers Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership side has continued its successful start to the 2022 season, coming up trumps in an away win over Central Coast Roosters.

It's the first time we've beaten the Roosters in this competition and it's the Roosters first loss in two years.

Boosted by the debut of inspirational, former Dally M Medal-winning lock Kezie Apps, Wests Tigers were outstanding throughout and look to be a clear premiership threat, this campaign.

After Christian Pio opened the scoring, zippy centre Tess Staines crossed just five minutes later, with the outside back scoring her second try in as many games to put Wests Tigers 10-0 up at the break.

Withstanding a Central Coast fightback after the resumption of play, prop Sarah Boyle scored, with the away side holding on for a 16-4 victory.

Wests Tigers 24 - 10 St. George Illawarra Dragons  

University of Wollongong Oval #1, Wollongong 

Wests Tigers’ Jersey Flegg Cup outfit made it two wins on the trot, with their latest victory putting them into 6th position on the table.

Conceding an early try, Wests Tigers fought back through young winger Joseph Delle, who after some strong recent performances for Balmain’s S.G. Ball Cup side, scored a try on his debut Jersey Flegg appearance. 

The away side extended their lead after half-time, with hooker Michael Tannous crossing in his first starting game in a competitive fixture since 2020, after a wretched run with injuries. The Balmain junior is one to watch.

Western Suburbs Magpies 42 - 16 Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 

CommBank Stadium, Parramatta 

And the celebrations continue for Wests Magpies Harold Matthews Cup team after its historic Grand Final win over Cronulla at the weekend.

It was an outstanding result for the team which went the whole season unbeaten.

Coach Robbie Mears says boys should be extremely proud of their efforts.

I could not be happier for this group of young men. They have worked so hard together and for each other all season.

From a development perspective, it's really encouraging not just for the players but for all involved in our pathways systems."
