Match Report: Round 14 KOE NSW Cup

Western Suburbs Magpies secured their second win of the season on Sunday, coming away with a 40-30 win over Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles. 

After Junior Pauga scored early, Fa’amanu Brown extended the home side’s lead, surging through a hole to cross. 

Tries to Aitasi James, Israel Ogden and a double for Pauga meant the Magpies went into the break with a comfortable 28-0 lead. 

Blacktown Workers had a second-half fightback, scoring five tries, but Western Suburbs held on to score a 10-point win. 

Coach Wayne Lambkin spoke on the result post-game.

“The cliche is it’s a game of two halves”.

I thought we were clinically really good in the first half, we played off the back of our middle defence, try-line defence and kick chase and we ended up with some nice tries.” 

Coach Wayne Lambkin

“The defensive effort allowed our attack to have some smoothness on the back of it.”

Lambkin again spoke highly of his team’s young brigade, with a number of the names mentioned looking like first-grade prospects in the near future. 

“I thought Fonua Pole was defensively strong, we’ve been working hard with him on his defence and it showed today.”

“Zane Camroux had his best game for the season at this level, and Justin Matamua was impressive too.”

“The experience he’s gaining at this level is immeasurable for him and the club’s future.”

The Magpies take on Canterbury next Sunday at CommBank Stadium.
