The Belrose Eagles dominant form made re-appearance at Abbot Park last weekend via a 20-4 win over the troubled Chester Hill Rhinos.

Ending an indifferent two weeks of football which saw the competition leaders draw in both games, it was time for the Eagles to snatch a more conclusive result. Either win or lose.

However the desperation of the Rhinos (winless in their previous three games) ensured the Eagles didn’t obliterate the way they like to.

The homeside dominated most of the possession, quickly dismissing any notion of being easybeats despite Belrose running out 6-0 winners at the end of the first half thanks to a Matt Forest try under the posts in the 11th minute.

Breaking through the Rhinos defense via some good go forward, Belrose scored first in the second half when Michael Takau crossed over with some help from a Richie Plummer torpedo.

The Rhinos to their credit didn’t unnerve themselves with any ‘here we go again’ nostalgia and got right back into the contest minutes later care of a try to Finaupau’u Makamaka.

A neck injury to Eagles halfback Richard Plummer forced Tim Mortimer to take over the drivers seat, who then authored a passing try assist to centre Todd Barrow.

Injuries continued to pop up for the competition favourites when Shannon Cameron required immediate attention from trainers, players and eventually a doctor for a dislocated finger.

This was not enough to withhold Belrose from building their lead with Tim Mortimer then bolting through the exhausted Rhinos defence to grab the last try of the game.

A conversion from Todd Barrow locked the final scoreline into the record books while handing the Rhinos a fourth consecutive loss and a slide down the Jim Beam Cup ladder.

The Shellharbour Marlins won their 3rd game since joining the Jim Beam Cup after taking out a 16-10 win over Asquith last weekend at Ron Costello Oval.

Two tries were scored by former Shellharbour Regan Cup player Matt Hillcoat while the other four-pointer went the way of ex Dragons jersey flegg star Lewis McPhail.

Sydney Bulls cemented a spot in the top 5 with a 32-18 win over the Erina Eagles but the game was not without it’s problems for coach David Baysarri.

With 11 contracted players unavailable and the penalty count not in their favour, the Bulls had their work cut out for them.

Despite this though they happily led 20-6 at half-time care of four tries to Danny Barakat, Nathan Wynn, Dane Gilmore and Adnan Saleh.

Taking no notice of the scoreline though down 32-6 with 30 minutes remaining, Erina’s never say die attitude paid off in the form of two late tries.

Seven Hills are still struggling to shake off their demons after the Entrance professionally disposed of them 42-10 at Fairfax Community Stadium.

Cabramatta halfback Adam Tippett tightened his lead as the top club pointscorer for the Two Blues (46 points, 3 tries, 17 goals) after kicking another 2 goals in his side’s 20-12 win over Wentworthville.

Windsor ascended to the top of the Jim Beam Cup competition ladder for the first time this season under coach Trent Rosa after pulling off a convincing 34-16 win over Mounties.
