An exciting SG Ball clash that saw the Eels go within two minutes of victory against the Bears.
The Bears jumped out of the blocks in devastating fashion, building an early 18-6 lead at half time, before a try in the second half saw them extend their lead to 24-6 and in control of the game.
However a late second half comeback from the Blue and Gold saw the young Eels SG Ball side level the scores, before a Travis Turnbull field goal put the Eels in front.
But it wasn’t to be, with a penalty in the final two minutes sealing the win for the Bears as they slotted over the two points for a 26-25 victory.
North Sydney 26 (A Carling 2, S Sabuety, S McGregor tries; Carling 5 goals)
