Norths Premier League go from
strength to strength

In their second trial match of 2006 the Bears Premier League side have matched the Newtown Jets 6 tries apiece. In a fiercely competitive match the Bears showed intensity and purpose and performed admirably under a high penalty count.

Against a Newtown side that boasted no less than 10 players with NRL experience, halves Ben Black and Daniel Russell led the side well. Both players are great communicators and they gave the newly formed side direction around the park. Also on hand were Melbourne Storm players Sam Tagataese and Ryan Shortland.

Despite the strong showing Josh White believes they can improve. ?It was a roller coaster performance and you know what, that?s good because there?s room for improvement. You don?t win Grand Finals in February?.

Also played at Henson Park prior to the Premier League the Bears Flegg side faced the Roosters while the Jets Jim Beam Cup side defeated Asquith 22-10.
