THE Stars of The Bears Harold Matthews team shone brightly on North Sydney Oval on Sunday, as the Club held its first home matches of the year, with all four grades on show as well as the Honey Bears cheer girls (pictured).
THE Mighty Bears produced a classic solid and workmanlike performance to beat a courageous Dragons outfit in a closely fought match at WIN Stadium on Saturday night, in front of a big crowd prior to the Storm V Dragons first grade match.
IT'S been six long years for the North Sydney Club but the Red and Black are back in the finals series and the Bears Jersey Flegg team having finished in 8th place will play the 1st placed and undefeated Roosters on Sunday.
THE North Sydney Bears Jersey Flegg team finals run came to an end on Sunday at Aussie Stadium. Up against the Roosters one of the greatest Jersey Flegg teams in history the Bears were primed for a big performance against the undefeated Sydney Roosters.
THE Mighty North Sydney Bears Flegg team had a timely return to form, with a first class performance against the Parramatta Eels despite the wet and greasy conditions at North Sydney Oval on Saturday. In fact, both teams should be
commended for their enterprising play in conditions not suited to expansive football. The Bears started well with a fine run down the left wing by Josh Lewis who managed to beat a couple of defenders and then threw a nice pass to
Bryce Poisel who was tackled as he took the ball. But he managed to break free and had to crawl on his hands and knees to finally cross the try line for a 4-nil lead. The Bears followed it up with a fine run from Brett Law who laid on a brilliant inside ball to backrower Jacob Martin who scored under the posts to extend the Bears' lead to 10-nil. From the ensuing kick off the Bears received back to back penalties to find themselves deep on attack. A couple of tackles later, Mahana Tai found himself on the end of a pin point accurate
grubber kick to have the Bears out to a 14-nil lead after only 20 minutes. A brief loss of focus proved costly for the Bears as a couple of missed tackles lead to 2 tries in five minutes to the Eels to cut the Bears lead to 14-10.
Just prior to half time, the Bears were able to regain the momentum of the game with Jacob Martin's second try after great lead up work from Lee Te Maari and with a fine conversion by Johnny Russell had the Bears charging into the
half time break with a 20-10 lead.
