The Warriors have overcome a 10-point deficit to beat the Wentworthville Magpies 20-18 in an exciting game of Rugby League at Ringrose Park.
It wouldn’t take long for the scoring to open with the Magpies finding space on the edges; it was some simple passing through the hands that gave the opening try to Bureta Faraimo in the left-hand corner of the ground. Jamal Fogarty nailed the conversion from the sideline and gave the Magpies an early six-point lead.
Faraimo would soon find himself with a brace after some clever work from the halves saw the Warriors again caught short on their right hand edge and handing the Magpies a gift four points. Fogarty was unable to convert but a commanding lead was building.
With the Warriors being starved of both field position and possession, it was a relieving penalty that finally got them back into a good ball area. It took a lucky bounce, but the Warriors finally crossed the stripe late in the first half to fight their way back into the game through a bouncing ball and Paulos Latu slammed the ball down in the corner. Mason Lino converted from the sideline to ensure the Warriors were only behind by four points.
