Junior Rep Report: Round 5

Updated: Mar 19

Playing in front of a strong contingent of local support at Seabrook Reserve, Storm’s Harold Matthews and SG Ball sides pushed their opposition all the way before ultimately falling short in Round 5.

Harold Matthews


After a strong first half performance that saw them jump out to a 18-10 lead, Storm’s Harold Matthews side were narrowly beaten by the Dragons 22-18 on Saturday. 

With some strong home support cheering them on, Storm jumped out of the gates, Memphis Wallace scoring in just the 4th minute.

After Dragons replied with two tries of their own, Storm halfback Waka Hammond then turned the contest on its head, scoring a quick-fire double right before the break.

Unfortunately for Storm’s youngsters, the Dragons managed to wrestle back momentum in the second half, scoring two tries in what was a low scoring second second stanza. 

Boasting some possession attacking the Dragons line in the dying stages, Storm were unable to come up with the winner, the siren souring any chance of last-gasp victory.

Storm will look to bounce back when they face the Manly Sea Eagles in Round 6 at Seabrook Reserve. 

SG Ball 

Storm’s SG Ball side will be able to take plenty of positives away from its 24-10 loss to a strong St George Illawarra side, showing glimpses of its best in the Round 5 clash. 

Storm started the game strongly, Dylan Gallagher benefiting from a well-executed shift to the left edge on the back of the scrum in the 5th minute.  

A trio of Dragons tries were broken right on the verge of the break, Chase Paterson finding the tryline once again after the visitors failed to reset defensively on the back of a Jett Elich linebreak.

Unfortunately, Paterson’s try in the 35th minute would be where the points ended for the home side, a strong breeze at the Dragons backs in the second half helping the visitors close out the contest 24-10.

Storm will look to bounce back next week against the Sea Eagles in Round 6 at Seabrook Reserve.
