Team Changes
Drew HUTCHINSON (no. 16) started at 5/8 in place of Lachlan LAM (no. 6) who is playing for Sydney Roosters in the NRL (and who came on at the 39:58 minute mark - two seconds before half time).

Max BAILEY (no. 15) started at prop in place of Sitili TUPOUNIUA (no. 11)

Jerry KEY (no. 20) was added to the bench.

Edenn ROGERS-SMITH (no. 18) is listed as a reserve, so I assume he was the unused fourth player on the bench. NS only used three interchange players.

As it turns out it was a 32-12 win to the Bears. Unsurprisingly the NSWRL site had the wrong score up for most of the weekend.

You can almost hear the circus music coming from Phillip Street HQ.

It's a bit like that at times. The additional scorers were:

Tries
Bradley Deitz 64'
Tom Freebairn 76'

Conversion
Brock Lamb 65'

The NSWRL website also updated the player stats - North Sydney used all four players on the bench, including Edenn ROGERS-SMITH.

Here's the match report from www.northsydneybears.com.au/rd2-match-report.

Round 2 Match Report: Bears v Sea Eagles

North Sydney Bears 32 | Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles 12


Sea Eagles tries: Leva Li 2

Bears conversions: Lamb 4/6

The North Sydney Bears have claimed their first win of the season with a 32-12 win over the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles at Lottoland on Saturday evening.

As the pitch black clouds began circulating Lottoland, players couldn’t help but see flashback of their wet weather outing at Redfern in Round 1.

The rain held off though (for the first half anyway) and the North Sydney Bears were set for a solid contest ahead.

They opened the scoring just three minutes into the match through Asu Kepaoa, finding some space on the right edge and bringing it back to the posts for the conversion.

The Sea Eagles hit back and hit back hard, with back-to-back tried to winger Leva Li to take the lead halfway through the opening stanza.

It wasn’t time for the Bears to lay down though and a sensational Kieran Moss did his part for his team to ensure they went back in front before the end of the half.

His first try was on the right edge was on the back of a solid play from the scrum 10 metres out from the line, while the second was a Bears special.

Josh Curran offloaded to Brock Lamb, Lamb got an inside ball to Moss and the Bears found themselves with a 16-12 lead heading into the sheds at the break.

They started the second half the way they finished the first, and it was Brock Lamb who capitalised on a dummy-and-run from 15 metres out for his first points in what was an outstanding game for the halfback.

Nat Butcher did well in the back end of the match to pop an offload to hooker Bradley Deitz to send him over just wide of the uprights.

Lamb topped off his sensational performance by sending prop Tom Freebairn over in the dying minutes.

The Bears take on the Magpies at 3pm this Sunday afternoon at Ringrose Park.
