Union (19) Battles Against Westering (17) To Win


The First team played against Westering in an away fixture on Saturday. Conditions were challenging and it seemed to disrupt us and throw us off our game.

After scoring two excellent tries early on through Matt Harpur and Ross Stanley, we lost our focus and got distracted by off the ball happenings. We made far too many errors and conceded regular turnovers at the breakdown, which allowed the opponents to dictate the game and keep us pinned in our territory.

Trailing 12-17 with 5 minutes remaining in the match, Terrence Siyaya barged over the line from close range to level the scores. Matt Harpur held his nerve to convert, giving us a slender 2-point lead. We, fortunately, held on to win the match 19-17.
