Magpies fall to fast finishing Bulldogs
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have claimed a remarkable come-from-behind victory, with two tries in the final 10 minutes seeing them take a 30-28 win over the Wentworthville Magpies at Ringrose Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Magpies fought hard in the opening 40 minutes to trail 18-12 at half-time and despite leading by 10 points in the closing stages of the contest, the Bulldogs hit back with back-to-back tries to Rhyse Martin and Josh Cleeland to record a second-straight win and cement their position in the top four of the Intrust Super Premiership NSW.
The early exchanges were an even battle with both teams guilty of ill-discipline after an array of penalties, but it was the Bulldogs who drew first blood with Tyrone Phillips finishing off a classy scrum-base play in the left-hand corner.
Rhyse Martin converted to take a 6-0 lead after 10 minutes.
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 30 (R Martin 2, T Phillips, T Carr, J Cleeland tries; R Martin 5 goals)
Wentworthville Magpies 28 (H Tuha 2, K De Luis, G Jennings, N Davis tries; N Davis 4 goals)
