Pathways Wrap: Round 12

In the second leg of the Tommy Raudonikis Cup, Western Suburbs Magpies came away with a draw, after coming up against a Jets side who were aiming to go top-of-the table with a win. 

With nine players with NRL experience included in the Magpies line-up, they produced one of their best performances of the season, fighting back to kick a late field goal of their own, after Rhys Davies put the Jets ahead by a point with nine minutes to go. 

Impressive young outside backs, Livai Saukuru and Trey Peni crossed for the first NSW Cup tries of their careers after also featuring for Wests Tigers’ Jersey Flegg (U/21’s) team in 2022. 

NRL regulars, Jacob Liddle and David Nofoaluma also got over for four-pointers, while Jock Madden kicked the late field goal to secure a point for the home side. 

Wests Tigers’ Jersey Flegg Cup outfit delivered their most impressive display of the season on Sunday, emerging with a 40-0 win against a strong Sharks side. 

Hooker Michael Tannous scored a double, as did young second-rower Sione Vaihu (who is playing up an age group, after featuring for Balmain’s SG Ball team earlier this year). 

Vaihu’s first try was especially impressive, with his slick line-running putting him straight through a hole from 40 metres out. 

Skipper Kade Hill also crossed for a memorable try when he stepped off his right foot, grubber kicked through the line and planted it down himself under the posts. 

Sitting in fifth place on the table, Wests Tigers will be looking to enter the top four with a victory over the last-placed South Sydney Rabbitohs this weekend.
