News http://leagueunlimited.com/news/rss Manu Vatuvei voted Favourite Son http://leagueunlimited.com/news/manu-vatuvei-voted-favourite-son/ <p>Manu Vatuvei is both feared and respected as ‘The Beast' on the field but the giant Vodafone Warriors winger's golden smile and compassion off the field have won him the hearts of rugby league fans who have voted him the game's Harvey Norman Women in League ‘Favourite Son'.</p><p>Vatuvei has been honoured for his "efforts and attitude that inspire women to be part of the rugby league family at all levels".</p><p>The award was presented to Vatuvei at today's launch of the 2014 Harvey Norman Women in League Round in front of more than 230 guests at Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art.</p><p>"I am proud and humbled to receive this. It's an awesome award, not just for me personally but most of all for my club and my family," said Vatuvei.</p><p>"I'd like to recognise and thank all our members, fans, team-mates, friends and family for their unbelievable support in voting for me.</p><p>"I also want to make special mention of my mother who has played such an important part in my life as well as (my wife) Jen and our girls who are always there to support me."</p><p>Vatuvei was running third late last week but surged into a clear lead on the back of a fantastic response to the Vodafone Warriors' ‘Vote for Vatuvei' social media campaign.</p><p>A photo posted by Vatuvei with his mother Tangikina in the lead-up to the Mother's Day match against Canberra on Saturday was a big vote catcher.</p><p>While paying credit to his mother, wife and daughters today, Vatuvei has always singled out his father Siosifa for special attention, too. He was ever-present at Mount Smart Stadium in Vatuvei's development squad years, bringing his son to training and waiting in the car park to take him home afterwards.</p><p>At today's launch of the Women in League Round, NRL chief executive Dave Smith said his vision is to ensure women and girls feel included and engaged in every aspect of the rugby league family.</p><p>He said Vatuvei embodied this vision through his inspirational work on and off the field.</p><p>Vatuvei's wife Jen was at the announcement which sees him join a prestigious list of previous ‘Favourite Son' award winners: Hazem El Masri (2009), Nathan Hindmarsh (2010), today's MC Petero Civoniceva (2011), Luke Burt (2012) and Anthony Minichiello (2013).</p><p>In an NRL career now in its 11<sup>th</sup> season, Vatuvei plays his 180th game when he lines up against the Bulldogs in Hamilton on Sunday. With 125 career tries he has been the Warriors' top or equal top try-scorer each of the last seven seasons and he is leading the charge again this year with seven in eight games. He has also played 24 Tests for New Zealand and two All Stars matches.</p><p>Vatuvei's award is the first major NRL accolade for the Vodafone Warriors in several years. Ruben Wiki won the Ken Stephen Medal in 2007, the Vodafone Warriors were named the One Community Club of the Year in 2008 and community manager Petrece Kesha won the Women in League award in 2009.</p><p>Smith said the role of women in the game had grown substantially in the past 12 months - but there was still a long way to go.</p><p>"We need to change the entire culture within the game to the point where it is normal to have a female in any role," he said.</p><p>"So, in future, we will see more mums and daughters participation, not just as players but as game officials, coaches and club administrators.</p><p>"We must have more women at the top if we are to deliver effective leadership.</p><p>"And we must have more women in every other aspect of our game if we are to have wider appeal - that means Boards, senior executive roles, in our clubs and State Leagues.</p><p>"And that will be a focus of the NRL over the next 12 months."</p><p>He announced there will be a women's Test between Australia and New Zealand as the curtain-raiser to the Australia-Toa Samoa Four Nations clash in Wollongong in November.</p><p>"This will be a re-match between the best two women's teams in the world … the teams which fought out the World Cup final last year," he said.</p><p>Player registrations have increased 66 per cent in the past 12 months (from 4741 in 2013 to 7216 in 2014). And women's involvement at all levels continues to grow from grassroots, where 40 per cent of club positions are held by women, to the NRL.</p><p>At the same time, the profile of women in rugby league has also continued to rise, with significant milestones in the past 12 months including appointments such as Raelene Castle as Bulldogs CEO, Corene Strauss as Men of League CEO, Rebecca Frizelle as Titans Board Chair and Linda Burney as ARL Indigenous Council Chair; the Jillaroos winning the Women's Rugby League World Cup for the first time, and the recent women's match played as a curtain-raiser to the Test; and Kasey Badger and Belinda Sleeman becoming the first female referees to be included in the full-time elite match officials squad.</p><p>World Cup-winning Jillaroos Sam Hammond and Ruan Sims were among the guests at today's lunch to celebrate the role of women in the game, along with Rugby League Ambassadors Nathan Hindmarsh, Nathan Cayless and Mario Fenech, Harvey Norman Chief Executive Katie Page, Bulldogs CEO Raelene Castle, Men of League CEO Corene Strauss, Broncos Director Katie Bickford, NRL's Welfare and Education Committee Professor Catharine Lumby, Referee Kasey Badger and Junior Rugby League representatives.</p><p>NRL clubs and grassroots clubs are supporting the Women in League Round initiative through various activities, including special edition purple socks, pink jerseys and fundraising events for a variety of charities.</p><p>For more information on the Harvey Norman Women in League Round please visit:<strong>www.nrl.com/womeninleague</strong></p> Wed, 14 May 2014 14:30:00 +1000 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/manu-vatuvei-voted-favourite-son/ Knights terminate ​Zane Tetevano's contract http://leagueunlimited.com/news/knights-terminate-zane-tetevanos-contract/ <p>Zane Tetevano has had his contract terminated by the Newcastle Knights due to disciplinary reasons, effective immediately.</p><p>The Knights will however provide the appropriate duty of care for Tetevano as he transitions out of the Club.</p><p>The NRL Integrity Unit is aware of the matter.</p><p>The Club wishes Tetevano all the best for the future.</p> Wed, 14 May 2014 14:25:00 +1000 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/knights-terminate-zane-tetevanos-contract/ LeagueUnlimited Intrust Super Cup Teams - 2014 Round 12 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/leagueunlimited-intrust-super-cup-teams-2014-round-12/ <p>The teamlists for Round 12 of the Intrust Super Cup - right here thanks to the QRL.</p><p>All times are listed in AEST (NSW/QLD/VIC) unless otherwise noted.</p> <p>Twitter:&nbsp;<a href="https://twitter.com/LeagueUnlimited">Follow @LeagueUnlimited</a></p> <p>Facebook:&nbsp;<a title="LU Facebook" href="http://www.facebook.com/LeagueUnlimited" target="_blank">Like LeagueUnlimited - NRL &amp;

To have the position through to the end of 2017 gives me certainty and the chance to plan our future with confidence.</p><p>"It's an exciting challenge for all of us as we seek to make the Vodafone Warriors a consistent force in the NRL. There's so much talent in this club but there's also so much work needed if we're to rise to the level we expect."</p><p>Since McFadden took over the Vodafone Warriors have shown vast improvement in both their level of effort and effectiveness in defence. In the past four matches they have conceded a total of just 63 points, an average of less than 16 points a game compared to an average of almost 28 in the first five rounds of the season.</p><p>Vodafone Warriors owner Eric Watson said McFadden had done an outstanding job in transforming the side.</p><p>"I spent some time with Andrew when I was back in Auckland recently and we've had regular contact since," he said.</p><p>"I had the greatest confidence he was the right man to bring about the changes needed when he was appointed last month.</p><p>"We had a view when Andrew joined the club that he would develop into the next long-term head coach. He has already shown the ability he has and we couldn't be more delighted to confirm his long-term future with the Vodafone Warriors."</p><p>Scurrah said today's confirmation gave McFadden the opportunity to not only focus on the rest of the 2014 campaign with confidence but to also work with clarity on the 2015 season and beyond.</p><p>"We're already working on recruitment and other plans and it's critical to have Andrew fully involved as we map out our future," he said.</p><p>McFadden's first match as the club's fully-fledged head coach is ironically against the same team he made his NRL coaching debut against - Canterbury-Bankstown - at Eden Park on April 13. </p><p>On that occasion the Bulldogs stole a 21-20 win after the Vodafone Warriors had led 20-18 inside the last 10 minutes of the contest; the performance represented a quantum leap from the 6-37 loss to Cronulla a week earlier.</p><p>The Bulldogs have gone to the top of the competition since the Eden Park match, taking a run of six consecutive wins into Sunday's encounter at Waikato Stadium (4.00pm kick-off).</p><p><strong>ANDREW McFADDEN </strong></p><p>Born: January 20, 1978</p><p>Birthplace:Goulburn, New South Wales</p><p><u>Coaching Career:</u></p><p>Canberra Jersey Flegg coach, 2005</p><p>Canberra premier league coach, 2006</p><p>Les Catalans assistant coach, 2007-2008</p><p>Canberra NYC coach, 2009</p><p>Canberra assistant coach, 2010-2012</p><p>Vodafone Warriors assistant coach, 2013-2014</p><p>Vodafone Warriors acting head coach, 2014</p><p>Vodafone Warriors head coach, 2014- </p><p><u>Playing Career:</u></p><p>Position:&nbsp;Halfback</p><p>Junior Club: Belconnen, ACT </p><p><strong>NRL Clubs:</strong> Canberra, 1997-2001</p><p>Parramatta, 2002</p><p>Melbourne, 2003-2004</p><p><strong>NRL Debut: </strong>Canberra v Cronulla, Bruce Stadium, Canberra, May 5, 1997 (Round 10) </p><p><strong>NRL Career:</strong> 100 appearances, 1997-2004:</p><p>Canberra, 76 appearances, 1997-2001</p><p>Parramatta, 21 appearances, 2002</p><p>Melbourne, 3 appearances, 2003-2004</p><p><strong>NRL Points:</strong> 131 points (32 tries, 1 goal, 1 field goal):</p><p>Canberra, 115 (28 tries, 1 goal, 1 field goal)</p><p>Parramatta, 16 (4 tries)</p><p>Melbourne, 0 &nbsp;</p> Tue, 13 May 2014 11:00:00 +1000 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/warriors-confirm-mcfadden-as-coach-til-2017/ LeagueUnlimited NRL Teams - 2014 Round 10 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/leagueunlimited-nrl-teams-2014-round-10/ <p>It's Women in League Round, and Teamlist Tuesday is here for Round 10 of the 2014 NRL Telstra Premiership!

Check out all the results, reports and player of the year points right here.</p><p>The NRL returned to our screens and the field and it certainly looks like it was a round that sorted the wheat from the chaff. Reigning premiers the Sydney Roosters thumped the Wests&nbsp;Tigers on Friday night, while the Cowboys put the Broncos in their place up in Townsville. The Warriors flexed their muscle against a hapless Canberra on Saturday, while the Rabbitohs scored an emphatic win over Gold Coast as well. Super Saturday wrapped up with Melbourne pipping Manly at the post.</p><p>Sunday saw the Panthers demoralise a poor Newcastle Knights outfit before the Bulldogs ran similar rings around arch-rivals the Dragons to maintain their lofty perch at the top of the NRL table. Monday night saw the Eels stave off a competitive Sharks outfit and consign the Shire men to the bottom of the ladder.</p><p>Below we have a look at how Round Nine played out...</p><hr> <p><strong>Sydney Roosters 30 Wests Tigers 6</strong><br>Venue: Allianz Stadium<br>Date: Friday 9 May 2014 at 7:40pm<br>Crowd: 16024<br> Halftime Score: Sydney Roosters 14 Wests Tigers 0</p><p><strong>LeagueUnlimited.com Players of the Match:</strong><br>3 points -

The resurgence has been led by Chris Sandow who finished last year in reserve grade is now on par with Jarryd Hayne in importance for the Parramatta side.</p><p>Sandow stamped his authority over the contest with a fourteen point haul that included a try and five conversions. He also produced five try-assists and kicked a 40/20 but quoting statistic misses the main component of Sandow's game tonight, his composure in his kicking game and tackling - at one point he took down a forward with a lovely legs tackle.</p><p>This Parramatta side is full of players who are enjoying a renaissance including NSW Blues hopeful Jarryd Hayne who helped to send Semi Radradra in for the opening try - the winger himself scoring his sixteenth try in as many appearances. Hayne will be duking it out with Dragons fullback Dugan for the Blues custodian role.</p><p>Cronulla weren't going away quietly though, as it was a carbon copy of the Eels try was reproduced to send Feki across in the corner. They added a slice of luck when Wade Graham flicked a kick up to himself to plant the ball down. The Sharks weathered the early storm to lead 12-4 or so they thought.</p><p>Enter Jarryd Hayne. The fullback started and finished a movement that involved Willie Tonga down the left side, as he weaved in and out of the Sharks defense like a cross stitch to put himself on the board. Hayne repeated the long range effort in the second to seal the game for the Eels after he streaked away from an errant Ayshford pass.</p><p>Hayne took a backseat to the scintillating Sandow show for most of the first half though - the halfback produced five minutes of magic after it reached the half hour, slicing a kick enough to fool Michael Gordon and plant it down. He followed it up with a 40/20 and a cut-out to Ken Sio to give the Eels a 22-12 lead at oranges.</p><p>The attacking show continued well into the second half as the teams traded tries throughout the whole half. William Hopoate had his strong effort in the 50th minute effort cancelled out by a determined run from Paul Gallen to pop up a ball for De Gois to score.&nbsp;</p><p>Sharks had the momentum until once again an errant pass found it's way into Parramatta hands, as Willie Tonga turned back the clock to his first stint with the Eels in his runaway effort. It took a well worked effort from Robson and Gordon to send the latter across to reduce it to ten point deficit outstanding from half-time.</p><p>Sandow finished off his night with one final try-assist. He was rocketed through a hole from a Joseph Paulo pass to be wrapped up by Beau Ryan ten from the line. Later in the set, he produced a cross-field kick to give Sio his double and see ya later for the Sharks.&nbsp;</p><p>Cronulla will reclaim the unwanted wooden spoon position on the NRL ladder atfter their 42-24 loss to Parramatta with injury concerns hanging over representative forward Andrew Fifita.&nbsp;</p><p>Parramatta meanwhile host St George Illawarra Saturday afternoon in a contest that will see if St George can recover from the thrashing they were dealt by Canterbury. </p><hr><strong>Match Details</strong><br><strong>Parramatta Eels 42 Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 24</strong><br>Venue: Pirtek Stadium<br>Crowd: 12541<br> Halftime Score: Parramatta Eels 22 Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks 12<br><br><strong>LeagueUnlimited.com Players of the Match:</strong><br>3 points - Chris Sandow<br>2 points - William Hopoate<br>1 point - Paul Gallen<br><br><p><strong>PARRAMATTA EELS (42)</strong><br><strong>Tries:</strong> Semi Radradra, Chris Sandow, Jarryd Hayne (2), Ken Sio (2), William Hopoate, Willie Tonga<br><strong>Conversions:</strong> Chris Sandow (5/7)</p><p><strong>CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS (24)</strong><br><strong>Tries:</strong> Sosaia Feki, Michael Gordon, Wade Graham, Isaac De Gois<br><strong>Conversions:</strong> Michael Gordon (4/4)</p><hr><strong>LeagueUnlimited.com Live Commentary</strong><br><p>TEAM CHANGES:</p><p>PAR: A few cosmetic changes for the Eels. David Gower and Peni Terepo will start for the home side. Pauli Pauli and Joseph Paulo head back to the bench. </p><p>CRO: Bryce Gibbs drops out for the Sharks. He is replaced by Siosaia Vave in the starting side with David Fifita coming onto the bench.</p><p>Welcome to a warm Parramatta Stadium for tonight's clash between Parramatta and Cronulla in which the two sides will be vying for the John Mannah Cup. Parramatta will be glad to be home after their last outing which was a thrashing against North Queensland but the Eels have thrived at home, unbeaten at Pirtek Stadium this season. Cronulla had a much needed win against Penrith in their last game at the cost of star five-eighth Todd Carney meaning Luke Lewis recently returned will fill in.</p><p>We have a minute's applause for the late John Mannah followed by a silence for immortal Reg Gasnier. </p><p><strong>1: </strong>Well done by all concerned. Now we head into the action - Sandow kicks off and here we go!</p><p><strong>1: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS</strong><br> Jeff Robson makes an unforced error.</strong><br>A mistake off the kick-off.. Jeff Robson went too far forward in catching the ball and slipped it. Dropout incoming. </p><p><strong>3: </strong>Sharks with some swarming defense, keeping Willie Tonga upright and throwing him into touch.</p><p><strong>3: </strong>Sharks just can't handle the ball currently - Wade Graham knocking on now as Sandow scoops it up.</p><p><strong>5: </strong><strong><strong>TRY PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Scored by Semi Radradra. Kick to come.</strong><br>It was simple strength and power from the Eels for their first try. Jarryd Hayne with a cut-out to Radradra into space and he just pushed through Beau Ryan to score. </p><p><strong>5: </strong><strong><strong>UNSUCCESSFUL CONVERSION PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Chris Sandow unsuccessful.</strong><br>Chris Sandow from the sideline, hooks it wide. </p><p><strong>7: </strong>Eels just looking dangerous on every play currently. Sandow launches a bomb that Hayne almost gets to but he knocked it forward. </p><p><strong>8: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR PARRAMATTA EELS</strong><br> Corey Norman makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Corey Norman was thinking too quick for his hands, knocking it on. </p><p><strong>10: </strong><strong><strong>TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS </strong><br>Scored by Sosaia Feki. Kick to come.</strong><br>Cronulla used mirror move - it was successful! Once again, a fullback swept around Gordon this time as he threw a nice cut-out to Feki which narrowly missed the defender but Feki hauled it in and despite the attention of Hayne got it down.</p><p><strong>11: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.</strong><br>Michael Gordon from a similar position to Sandow puts it right down the middle. </p><p><strong>15: </strong>First PENALTY of the evening - it goes to the Sharks from the contentious stripping rule but dear oh dear, Jeff Robson doesn't find touch!</p><p><strong>17: </strong>SIX AGAIN for the Sharks as the ball rebounded off an Eels head. </p><p><strong>17: </strong>PENALTY Cronulla - Corey Norman was offside. </p><p><strong>19: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.</strong><br>A much easier assignment for Gordon who makes it 2/2 tonight. </p><p><strong>18: </strong><strong><strong>TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS </strong><br>Scored by Wade Graham. Kick to come.</strong><br>Fortunate but they count all the same! Jeff Robson plays the perfect through ball for Wade Graham who flicks it up as he runs through himself to pick up the spoils. Manchester City eat your heart out. </p><p><strong>22: </strong><strong><strong>TRY PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Scored by Jarryd Hayne. Kick to come.</strong><br>Hayne started the move finding space for Tonga who went into space, gave it back to Hayne who weaves in and out more than a McDonalds WiFi to plant the ball down right besides the posts. </p><p><strong>22: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Chris Sandow successful.</strong><br>Chris Sandow besides the posts, adds the two. </p><p><strong>25: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS</strong><br> Michael Gordon makes an unforced error.</strong><br>That was a towering bomb from Sandow that swirled round and round before it dropped right through Gordon's hands. </p><p><strong>26: </strong>SIX MORE for the Eels as they pile on the pressure.. it was knocked down from a Shark.</p><p><strong>27: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS</strong><br> John Morris makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Peats tries the crash ball from dummy-half but John Morris intervenes to knock it down. </p><p><strong>28: </strong>VIDEO REFEREE: Upstairs we go for the first time tonight: William Hopoate used his strength to burrow through, checking grounding.</p><p><strong>28: </strong>RED LIGHTS..NO TRY! Referee had a zillion looks at it and called it held up.. it looked like the ball was down there. </p><p><strong>29: </strong><strong><strong>TRY PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Scored by Chris Sandow. Kick to come.</strong><br>Dynamo the magician would be proud of that trickery from Sandow. He feigned to go for the cross-field kick before chipping it over, taking a wicked bounce over Gordon and right into the on-rushing Sandow's hands. </p><p><strong>30: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Chris Sandow successful.</strong><br>Sandow walks in to convert his own try and promptly does so. </p><p><strong>31: </strong>In an afternoon of forgettable news for NSW Blues fans - Andrew Fifita is in the dressing rooms with ice on his ankle and crutches. He will not return tonight. </p><p><strong>32: </strong><strong><strong>40/20 PARRAMATTA EELS</strong><br>Chris Sandow kicks a 40/20.</strong><br>Chris Sandow can do it all tonight! He boots a lovely 40/20 as Will Hopoate sprints up to take the tap before being scolded by the referee for not being on the mark. </p><p><strong>33: </strong><strong><strong>TRY PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Scored by Ken Sio. Kick to come.</strong><br>Momentum has swung right into the Eels favour. Sandow once again was involved, throwing the cut-out to Ken Sio who just had to step inside and plant the ball down. </p><p><strong>34: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Chris Sandow successful.</strong><br>The man of the moment Chris Sandow brings some calm here, taking this conversion. He shaved it just inside the left post.</p><p><strong>35: </strong>NSW fans look away.. Paul Gallen is down now after some heavy contact with Lussick. </p><p><strong>36: </strong>Sandow is wrecking havoc with these towering bombs. Beau Ryan was in the firing line this time letting it bounce and thankfully Radradra who captured it, was wrapped up.</p><p><strong>37: </strong>It's the electrifying Eels tonight! They shifted it like lightning through the hands, Sio though was in front of the passer. </p><p><strong>37: </strong>Sharks now try to put it through the hands but it goes forward. </p><p><strong>39: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS</strong><br> Beau Ryan makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Hayne tries to find Radradra in space but Beau Ryan eyed open space tried to intercept it, knocking it down in gathering it in.</p><p><strong>40: </strong>Eels tried to get Hopoate one on one with his opposite number but he got tossed over the sideline.</p><p><strong>40: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS</strong><br> Paul Gallen makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Just to punctuate how dire the Sharks have been, Gallen knocks on with the last touch in the half. </p><p><strong>40: </strong>We're back for the second half.. Sharks lined up for the kick-off. Here we go!</p><p><strong>43: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR PARRAMATTA EELS</strong><br> Chris Sandow makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Nathan Peats throws a bullet ball to Sandow which was knocked on.</p><p><strong>44: </strong>Wade Graham puts Sosaia Feki in some space but the winger is wrapped up and taken over the sideline. </p><p><strong>46: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS</strong><br> Ricky Leutele makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Sharks try to shift it left again but it doesn't get past Leutele who spills it.</p><p><strong>47: </strong>Chris Sandow has it on a string tonight.. he took it to the line and stabbed it through for Feki to be trapped in goal.</p><p><strong>48: </strong>PENALTY Eels - strip penalty.</p><p><strong>48: </strong>VIDEO REFEREE: Upstairs for a Hopoate TRY again.. this looks simpler though.</p><p><strong>50: </strong><strong><strong>TRY PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Scored by William Hopoate. Kick to come.</strong><br>The Sharks backline will be having nightmares of this sweeping play after tonight. The Eels halves got Hopoate into space and he was just too strong for Leutele and crashed over. </p><p><strong>50: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Chris Sandow successful.</strong><br>From the sideline, Sandow hooks it in!</p><p><strong>54: </strong>VIDEO REFEREE: Wade Graham has slid in after a nice offload. Checking grounding.</p><p><strong>54: </strong>RED LIGHTS..NO TRY! Wade Graham lost it JUST as he was over the stripe. It was a lovely falling offload from Robson that goes to waste. </p><p><strong>56: </strong><strong><strong>UNFORCED ERROR PARRAMATTA EELS</strong><br> Jarryd Hayne makes an unforced error.</strong><br>Hayne tried to create the overlap down the short side but drops the penultimate pass.</p><p><strong>56: </strong>SIX MORE for the Sharks who get some field position after a Ma'u dropped ball.</p><p><strong>57: </strong><strong><strong>TRY CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS </strong><br>Scored by Isaac De Gois. Kick to come.</strong><br>That was some inspirational running from Gallen, no one was stopping him there.. he popped a hail mary up and De Gois answered his prayer for the try. </p><p><strong>58: </strong><strong><strong>SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION CRONULLA-SUTHERLAND SHARKS </strong><br>Conversion attempt by Michael Gordon successful.</strong><br>Gordon puts it through to reduce the margin to ten.</p><p><strong>63: </strong><strong><strong>TRY PARRAMATTA EELS </strong><br>Scored by Willie Tonga. Kick to come.</strong><br>Sharks look to produce the numbers down the right again..

http://leagueunlimited.com/news/tuesdays-expert-wrap-nyc-round-9/ Anthony Milford to honour Broncos deal http://leagueunlimited.com/news/anthony-milford-to-honour-broncos-deal/ <p>Canberra Raiders fullback Anthony Milford has informed the club he will be honouring the deal he made with the Brisbane Broncos and will depart at the end of the 2014 season. </p><p>Milford said the decision to leave the club where he developed his game and made his NRL debut was the toughest of his career so far and thanked everyone involved in the Raiders organisation for the opportunities they have given him and the patience they have shown.</p><p>"This was a very tough decision for me and my family and I want to thank everyone at the Raiders for everything they have done for me," Milford said. "I've been with the club since I was awarded a scholarship at the age of 13. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for the Raiders and I will never forget the support they've given me.</p><p>"I'm 100 per cent committed to the Raiders for the rest of the season and I look forward to helping the team play well for the rest of the year." </p><p>Milford will honour the final year of his current deal with the Raiders and remain with the club until the end of the 2014 season.</p> Mon, 12 May 2014 17:15:00 +1000 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/anthony-milford-to-honour-broncos-deal/ Cowboys re-sign Cooper http://leagueunlimited.com/news/cowboys-re-sign-cooper/ <p>Another key member of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys NRL squad, back-rower Gavin Cooper, has re-signed with the club for a further three seasons.</p><p>The Australian Prime Minister's XIII representative from last season is now contracted to North Queensland until the end of the 2017 season and joins Brent Tate as Cowboys who have extended their contracts this season.</p><p>The 28-year-old made his NRL debut with the Cowboys in 2006 before heading south for two-year stints at Gold Coast and Penrith.</p><p>He returned to North Queensland for the start of the 2011 season and has now played 98 NRL games for the club to take his overall career tally to 174.</p><p>"I'm really happy to have my future secured and to be able to stay here in North Queensland which is home for us now," Cooper said today.</p><p>"I started with the Young Guns here back in 2005 so this club has been a major part of my life.</p><p>"We have a great squad, with plenty of good players and good mates who have committed themselves to being long-term Cowboys.</p><p>"I'm happy to be one of them."</p><p>A member of the Cowboys' leadership group and captain of this year's victorious NRL Auckland Nines squad, Cooper has only missed a handful of games in his second term with North Queensland and has been part of finals campaigns in each of his last three seasons.</p><p>His representative debut came last year when he played for the PM's XIII against Papua New Guinea and he was also included in the Kangaroos' Rugby League World Cup train-on squad.</p><p>"It's very important that we keep people like Gavin at the Cowboys," general manager - football Peter Parr said.</p><p>"Not only is he a high-quality player, he's had a very positive influence on the culture we're trying to build at this club."</p> Mon, 12 May 2014 15:00:00 +1000 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/cowboys-re-sign-cooper/ RESULTS: QRL ISC & FOGS May 10-11 http://leagueunlimited.com/news/results-qrl-isc-and-fogs-may-10-11/

The scrum-half added the extras to give his side a narrow 14-12 lead into the interval.</p><p>After the break, the Rhinos came out strongly and they re-took the lead as Hardaker was first to reach Danny McGuire's kick and he patted the ball back for Watkins to get Jones-Bishop, over for his second try of the night.</p><p>This was the key moment of the game as the men from Headingley began to dominate and they won the game on 55 minutes after good work by substitute Liam Sutcliffe led to Watkins showing tremendous strength in scoring his second try.</p><p>Sinfield kicked his third goal as Leeds closed the game out comfortably to remain as pace setters in the First Utility Super League.</p><hr><p><strong>Hull FC <wbr> 16</strong></p><p>Tries: Ellis, Shaul, Talanoa<br>Goals: Miller 2</p><p><strong>Wigan Warriors 44</strong></p><p>Tries: Sarginson 3, Gelling 2, Hughes,&nbsp;Burgess, Manfredi<br>Goals: Smith 6</p><p>Att: 10,539</p><p>Wigan Warriors bounced back from last week defeat at Leeds in style as they eased past Hull FC at the KC Stadium.</p><p>It was all hands to the deck for the Warriors as they were without Josh Charnley, Sean O'Loughlin, Liam Farrell and Matty Bowen, which left them without any recognised full-back.</p><p>But, this did not hinder them as makeshift Full-Back Dan Sarginson opened the scoring after seven minutes. Anthony Gelling then powered his way over and Matty Smith made it 14-0 with a penalty to add to his two conversions as Wigan dominated the early stages of the game.</p><p>Hull got into the game on the back of an error By Dom Manfredi and this led to Gareth Ellis going over the line on 26 minutes.</p><p>The visitors increased the lead three minutes before half-time when Smith broke clear and sent over the supporting Jack Hughes to make it 18-02 at the break.</p><p>There was no way back for The Black and Whites in the early stages of the second half when the Warriors hit them with two quick tries.</p><p>Gelling combined with Michael McIlorum to get Burgess over before Sarginson sliced through second try of the night.</p><p>Trailing 30-6 Jamie Shaul pulled a try back but Manfredi atoned for his early error by go in for Wigan's sixth try just after the hour mark.</p><p>Gelling added another before his run setup Sarginson to complete his hat-trick on 71 minutes but the hosts had the final say when Fetuli Talanoa scored in the last few minutes of the game.</p><hr><p><strong>Warrington Wolves 42</strong></p><p>Tries: J. Monaghan 2, England, Ratchford,&nbsp;Bridge, Higham, Laithwaite<br>Goals: Bridge 7</p><p><strong>Catalans Dragons 10</strong></p><p>Tries: Duport, Escare<br>Goal: Barthau</p><p>Att: 8,816</p><p>Warrington Wolves ran in seven tries as they brushed aside a poor Catalans Dragons at the H.J. Stadium.</p><p>After a shock loos at Bradford last week, Warrington welcomed back Stefan Ratchford to partner Chris Bridge in the halves.</p><p>The start of the contest was riddled with poor handling as both side struggled to hang on to the ball in the opening ten minutes of the game.</p><p>After the Dragons winger Michael Oldfield was denied a try in the corner by good defence by Rhys Evans, this gave the Wolves the impetuous they needed and soon after this Joel Monaghan opened the scoring on 17 minutes.</p><p>It got better for the home side three minutes later when England was on hand to pick up the loose ball after a Michael Monaghan pass had come off a Catalan defender.</p><p>Try number three soon followed and it was a superb effort when full back Matty Russell broke from deep, Gene Ormsby carried on the move and his inside pass allowed Joel Monaghan to claim his second try of the night.</p><p>Five minutes before half-time Ratchford scored a fine individual try and with Chris Bridge kicking his fourth goal Warrington were out of sight leading 24-0.</p><p>It took less than a minute after the restart for the hosts to increase their lead when Ben Evans charged down William Barthau's kick and James Laithwaite scooped up the loose ball to send Bridge racing clear to score.</p><p>The dominance continued when a break by prop Chris Hill saw the supporting Micky Higham sprint clear to touch down underneath the posts. Laithwaite claimed Warrington's seventh try of the night before the French outfit finally got on the scoreboard on 65 minutes with Vincent Duport's try powering his way over.</p><p>The visitors also claimed a last minute try through Morgan Escare, but it was not thier night as Warrington claimed the points to stay in the eight.</p><hr><p><strong>Widnes Vikings 18</strong></p><p>Tries: Hulme 2, Flynn<br>Goals: Tickle 3</p><p><strong>Wakefield Wildcats 24</strong></p><p>Tries: Riley, Moore, Siejka, Sykes<br>Goals: Sammut 4</p><p>Att: 5,186</p><p>Wakefield Wildcats claimed a last gasp valuable win over Widnes Vikings at the Select Security Stadium.</p><p>The Wildcats went into the clash boasting a six-match winning run against Widnes stretching back to 2005 as they looked to put daylight between themselves and second bottom Bradford Bulls.</p><p>After build up some pressure, the Wildcats struck first when Jarrad Sammut collected Kevin Brown' loose pass and raced 80-meters before sending Chris Riley over. Sammut kicked the extras to make it 6-0 after seven minutes.</p><p>Veteran prop Richard Moore made even better for the visitors when he charged through two defenders to make it 12-0 on the twenty minute mark.</p><p>But the Vikings hit back and they got back into the contest with Brown and Marsh combining for Declan Hulme to cross in the corner.</p><p>Brown continued to pull the strings and just before the break his long pass put Paddy Flynn over in the corner. Danny Tickle added his second goal as the teams went into the break all square at 12-12.</p><p>Shortly into the second half, Hulme struck as he got on the end of Danny Craven's kick. Once again the ever reliable Tickle made no mistake with the extras as the hosts took the lead for the first time 18-12.</p><p>Wakefield would not give in and they got back on terms with ex Dragon Harry Siejka plunging over the line.</p><p>This setup a frantic finish in which both side came close to breaking the deadlock and finally with time running out Paul Sykes swept over with the last play of the match to snatch the game for the Wildcats who moved clear of the relegation zone.</p><hr><p><strong>London Broncos 16</strong></p><p>Tries: Vea, Foster, Solomona<br>Goals: Drinkwater 2</p><p><strong>Huddersfield Giants 30</strong></p><p>Tries: Lunt, Ta'ai 2, Mullally,&nbsp;Cudjoe<br>Goals: Brough 5</p><p>Att: 1,035</p><p>Huddersfield Giants claimed the points in a close contest with London Broncos at The Hive.</p><p>The Broncos welcomed back Scott Moore from suspension as new Head Coach Joe Grimar started his rein.</p><p>Huddersfield, who were on a three match winning run, started more brightly and grabbed the lead when Shaun Lunt crossed from close range on six minutes.</p><p>The Londoners struggled to get into the game but on 16 minutes after a break by Moore, Atelea Vea was on hand to touchdown.</p><p>It took just nine more minutes for the Giants to regain the lead and this came courtesy of Ukuma Ta'ai who broke through a series of tackles to power his way over the line.</p><p>But, showing good spirit, the Londoners responded with two scores of their own, to lead 14-10.</p><p>Firstly Alex Foster stretched to score after good work from Ben Farrar, then moments later Denny Solomona raced in at the corner after good work by Mason Caton-Brown.</p><p>Josh Drinkwater kicked a penalty before half-time to give the hosts a six point cushion at the break.</p><p>The Giants flew out of the blocks after the restart and hit London with two tries in the opening four minutes of the second half to take control.</p><p>Anthony Mullally was the first to cross after a short pass from Lunt, with Ta'ai then grabbing his second when he went through a gap in the hosts defence.</p><p>The next score did not arrive until 65th&nbsp;minute when Danny Brough kicked a penalty goal to give the West Yorkshire side an eight-point advantage.</p><p>With time running out up stepped Leroy Cudjoe to score the match clinching try as the Giants inflicted a 13 successive defeat on London this season.</p><hr><p><strong>Salford Red Devils 16</strong></p><p>Tries: Meli 2, Gleeson<br>Goals: Mullaney 2</p><p><strong>Hull KR 16</strong></p><p>Tries: Welham, Larroyer, Costigan<br>Goals: Burns 2</p><p>Att: 5,000</p><p>Salford Red Devils ended thier four match loosing run by playing out a draw with Hull KR at the AJ Bell Stadium.</p><p>The opening quarter of the game was scoreless despite the visitors from Hull dominating and against the run of play the Red Devils took the lead.</p><p>Star-man Rangi Chase's long pass sent Francis Meli on a clear run to score out wide after 22 minutes. Four minutes later Rovers got back on terms when Travis Burns combined with his half-back partner Kris Keating to get Kris Welham over the line.</p><p>This gave the Robins the upper hand and it was no surprise when second rower Kevin Larroyer took advantage of a mistake by Salford Full-Back Jake Mullaney to give his side a 10-4 lead at the break.</p><p>Salford made a better start to the second half and after building the pressure Junior Sau got his winger Meli over for his second try of the contest. Mullaney's touchline conversion levelled the scores.</p><p>However, Rovers regained the lead on 59 minutes when loose forward Neville Costigan gathered a loose ball following Burns' grubber kick to go over for his side's third try.</p><p>The game remained in the balance until on 63 minutes Red Devils centre Martin Gleeson followed up Chase's high kick to touch down and Mullaney kicked his second goal to make it 16-16.</p><p>Costigan was inches short of the line as Rovers went for the victory that probably deserved and Ben Cockayne fumbled a drop-goal attempt while Chase struck the woodwork with his attempted one-pointer, as both sides had to settle for share of the spoils.</p><hr><p><strong>Bradford Bulls 0</strong></p><p><strong>St Helens <wbr> 50</strong></p><p>Tries: Wilkin 2, Walsh, Lomax, Makinson,&nbsp;Swift, Soliola, Scarsbrook, Roby<br>Goals: Walsh 7</p><p>Att: 6,311</p><p>St Helens shut out Bradford Bulls in a one-sided game at the Provident Stadium Odsal.</p><p>Both teams came into this contest after good results last week.

It's just a case of not losing confidence in what we do and why we do it," he said.</p> <p>The Knights opened the scoring through winger James McManus in the sixth minute but it would be the only time they found themselves in front on the scoreboard.</p> <p>It was a performance which was punctuated by poor ball handling, missed tackles and a general lethargy in both attack and defence and the Panthers didn't need a second invitation to grind their opponent into the ground.</p> <p>Tries to David Simmons, Matt Moylan and Soward ensured the Panthers headed to the break with a six-point advantage before kicking clear in the second half.</p> <p>Skipper Kurt Gidley was disappointed at the defensive effort from the side after they went within a few minutes of knocking off ladder-leaders Canterbury in their last start.</p> <p>"The most disappointing thing today was defensively, especially after the Bulldogs game, to have a blow out like today is a step backwards.</p> <p>"But you’ve got to turn up to training and work hard, there’s no easy way out of this. It's all hard work and you’ve got to be able to transfer hard work to game day. Walking around kicking stones and with our head down won’t help us," he said.</p> <p>If there was an error to be made over the course of the game Newcastle compounded it by gifting Penrith two tries courtesy of two wayward passes from Knights centre Joey Leilua who had a game he would rather forget.</p> <p>Penrith winger Josh Mansour told Fox Sports after the game he wasn't sure why his side couldn't put in consistent performances but was pleased to be heading back down the freeway with an important two points.</p> <p>"We stuck in the cycle, knew Newcastle would come out firing and we were lucky to get them on the edges," he said.</p> <p>"We'll focus on Canberra next week and I'm sure if we can get two wins in a row it will help us get some momentum and get going this season."</p> <p>The question for Wayne Bennett and his Newcastle side is where to from here?</p> <p>It doesn't get any easier next week when they face Manly at Brookvale on Monday night and in a campaign that offered so much, it is quickly turning into a horror movie.</p> <hr><p><strong>Match Details</strong><br><strong>Newcastle Knights 10 Penrith Panthers 32</strong><br>Venue: Hunter Stadium<br>Crowd: 13682<br> Halftime Score: Newcastle Knights 10 Penrith Panthers 16<br><br><strong>LeagueUnlimited.com Players of the Match:</strong><br>3 points - Jamie Soward<br>2 points - Matt Moylan<br>1 point - James Segeyaro<br><br></p> <p><strong>NEWCASTLE KNIGHTS (10)</strong><br><strong>Tries:</strong> James McManus, Dane Gagai<br><strong>Field Goals:</strong><br><strong>Conversions:</strong> Kurt Gidley (1/2)<br><strong>Penalty Goals:</strong></p> <p><strong>PENRITH PANTHERS (32)</strong><br><strong>Tries:</strong> David Simmons, Jamie Soward, Matt Moylan, Josh Mansour, Dean Whare, James Segeyaro<br><strong>Field Goals:</strong><br><strong>Conversions:</strong> Jamie Soward (3/6)<br><strong>Penalty Goals:</strong> Jamie Soward (1/1)</p> <hr><p><strong>LeagueUnlimited.com Live Commentary</strong></p> <p>Good afternoon footy fans and welcome to a sun-drenched Hunter Stadium for today's Round 9 encounter between the Knights and Panthers.
