ROUND 9 of the NSWRL Premier League saw some rather large scores posted. The Cougars put on a polished performance over Norths. The thriller at Sydney Showgrounds between the Bulldogs and the Magpies certainly entertained the crowd as did the game played at Henson Park between the Newtown Jets and the Roosters.
SOME good match ups this weekend in the NSWRL Premier League competition. With the top of the table so tight, 3 teams on 12 points, and others nipping at their heels, the pressure is starting to go on to perform week in and week out.
THE Premier League competition saw some movement on the competition ladder with some good performances put in and a return of one of the stars of Rugby League, Nathan Blacklock.
ROUND 7 of New Zealand's Bartercard Cup brought up some interesting results, none more so than Otahuhu Leopard's narrow victory over the Canterbury Bulls.
ROUND 7 of New Zealand's Bartercard Cup resumes this weekend following the break courtesy of Queen's Birthday Weekend.
ALL teams in New Zealand's Bartercard Cup competition are not playing this weekend as it is a holiday weekend.
THE crowd at Leichhardt Oval were after no less than a win from their team, and the Tigers tried their best to deliver, but were beaten by a determined Sea Eagles side 38-30, who finally have managed to win an away game in 2003. Surprisingly, after the reputation Leichhardt Oval has for visiting sides, the Tigers are yet to post a win at home in the 2003 NRL competition.
A win finally to the NZ Warriors in their one off jersey strip, at a slippery home ground when they defeated the Sharks by 23-6 in front of a crowd of 16,172.
A Roosters side minus 7 of their top players played out of their skins but went down to the more experienced Bulldogs pack by 28 - 18 at Aussie Stadium.
ROUND 7 of the Premier League competition seems to have rolled around very quickly.
