Stats that matter: Round 7

No need to panic…yet

Dogs finish strongly to down Rabbitohs

Both teams struggled for ideas in attack but the spark from Reynolds was the difference, repeatedly causing the Rabbitohs' flimsy left-edge defence all manner of problems.

PNG Soccer Charity Cup underway in NCD

There are five divisions in the 7-a- side tournament: Men’s, Women’s, Junior Mixed, Senior Mixed and Master’s Mixed.

The finals will be played on Monday, April 17.

The Charity Cup was founded in 1998 by Kisakiu Posman. Over the years the event has grown in popularity and has expanded from a one‐day competition to a full four‐day charity sporting event.

The Charity Cup's organising committee comprises of volunteers mainly of Posman Kua Aisi Lawyers who have partnered up with other volunteers.

Tigers keen to put week behind them

New coach Ivan Cleary is looking forward to seeing his team take the field against the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday night, and many expect him to make changes at the club in the coming weeks.  

"In a way it's been good to come up here and get out of Sydney," Cleary said.

Reynolds field-goal sinks Panthers

A late try to former Rabbitoh Michael Oldfield with four minutes left got the Panthers level after the Rabbitohs controlled most of the second half, before the cool head of Reynolds slotted the one-pointer from 20 metres out to notch up the Bunnies' third win of the season.

Dragons hoping for change of luck at Lottoland

The Dragons haven't won at Lottoland since a 20-18 victory in 2008, with the Red V outscored 118-26 in their past four matches at the venue. 

Monday Morning Halfback: Record breakers

One minute later, the Wests Tigers were huddled behind their own sticks watching the Dragons celebrate their second try of the afternoon. 

Barras bounce back with 26 run win

The Barras batted first and finished at 8/232, thanks largely to knocks from Vani Vagi Morea (52), Dogodo Bau (46) and Lega Siaka (27).

UAE’s run chase had them on track at 3/148, but a batting collapse in the middle order gave way to the win for the Barras bowling UAE all out for 206 inside 47 overs.

Captain Assad Vala was the best of the bowlers, taking 3/20 off his ten overs.

Vala’s spell included the prized scalp of UAE’s danger man Ghulam Shabber, who top scored with 70.

The third One Day International will be played tomorrow.

Clinical Storm outclass Panthers

Aspiring premiership contenders Penrith were motivated to earn a landmark victory in Melbourne but the Storm held them scoreless in the second half, continuously repelling the many attacks on their own tryline.

United Sisters retain softball title

Runs scored by Priscilla Mocke and Florence Daple put United Sisters in front at 2-0 after the completion of the first inning.

United Sisters took things up a notch with their batting in the second inning piling on four more runs with a display of power batting from Mocke, Daple and Georgina Mautu.

Bears seemed to have no answers to the mother and daughter combination of Selina Karai on the pitching mound and Tessa Karai at catcher.

It all looked bleak for Bears at the bottom of the third inning when the deficit increased to seven runs.
