WESTS TIGERS BEAT EELS 20-12 IN NRL TRIAL
By Wayne Cousins
11/02/2012 9:03:11 PM

Wests Tigers won the inaugural Sean Burns Memorial Shield in beating Parramatta Eels 20-12 in an NRL trial match tonight at Bluetongue Stadium.

In front of a crowd of 13, 622, Wests Tigers led from the start with Head Coach Tim Sheens playing his strongest side in the first half. The Sean Burns Memorial Shield is named in honour of the former Strength and Conditioning Coach who worked at both clubs.

Missing Robbie Farah, Chris Lawrence, Lote Tuqiri and Mitch Brown through injury, Wests Tigers led 20-6 at half-time with five-eighth Benji Marshall and half-back Tim Moltzen sparking the attack after a solid platform was laid by the hard working forward pack.

New forward Adam Blair was solid in his first appearance for Wests Tigers while promising young full-back James Tedesco did some good things after a nervous start.

Wests Tigers opened the scoring in the 12th minute through a superb cut out pass by Marshall to send winger Matt Utai over in the left corner for a 4-0 lead. Marshall converted his own try for a 6-0 lead.

A crossfield kick by new Eels half-back Chris Sandow saw centre Esi Tonga outleap half-back Tim Moltzen for the ball to score near the posts. Winger Luke Burt converted the try for a 6-all scoreline after 24 minutes.

Three minutes later, Wests Tigers second-rower Gareth Ellis busted the Eels defence open to send centre Blake Ayshford over next to the posts. The try came on the back of a 20 metre restart after the Eels knocked the ball on in-goal.
Marshall converted the try for a 12-6 lead after 28 minutes.

A nice cut out pass by Moltzen saw Ayshford head for the right corner post before turning the ball back inside for winger Beau Ryan to score in the 28th minute for a 16-6 lead. Marshall's attempt hit the right upright.

Utai grabbed his second try in the 39th minute when he crashed his way over in the corner after some smart work by Marshall and Moltzen. Marshall's attempt again hit the post to leave Wests Tigers leading 20-6 at half-time.

2nd Half
Wests Tigers lock Liam Fulton left the field five minutes after half-time after copping an accidental boot just below his left eye. He did not return after getting stitches.

Moltzen showed his pace when he ran down Sandow down to within 10 metres of the tryline.

With Wests Tigers leading 20-6 with 20 minutes remaining, Sheens rested Marshall, Ellis, Keith Galloway, Adam Blair, Aaron Woods, Ryan, Ayshford and Adam Blair to give the likes of Matt Bell, Ben Murdoch Masila, John Grant, Jacob Miller, Nathan Waters, Tom Humble, Dane Chisholm and Tim Simona game time.

The intensity of the game then dropped off. Chisholm was all but home for a try in the 78th minute after racing 50 metres only to lose the ball over the line in attempting to score.

The Eels then scored a minute later through replacement U20s centre Vai Toutai. Joseph Paulo converted the try from out wide for the 20-12 scoreline at full-time.

Sounds like Tedesco was exciting and here's hope Grant keeps developing :)

Look forward to seeing the side go around next weekend at Campbelltown with Rowdy, Farah and Brown all likely to get gametime. Just good news that no major injuries were sustained.

But it sure is good to start the year with a win and no major injuries.
I agree.
nice to read/hear that the team is combining well so far.
need to see it done consistently during the season. :pray:
expectation is high for wests-tigers to go well.

last two seasons, wests-tigers have got to the grand final qualifier, and not been able to progress.
who knows what is in store for this season. :wtf
its time to enjoy the ride again

Basil, our rescue dog, is wondering when wests tigers will win 25 - 18 :D

Tigers beat Eels 20-12 in NRL trial
Steve Jancetic

AAP

Wests Tigers brushed off the cobwebs and Parramatta, as Tim Sheens' men gave a glimpse of why they're considered NRL premiership favourites with a 20-12 trial win in Gosford.

The Tigers' new halves combination of Benji Marshall and Tim Moltzen produced a superb opening 40 minutes to have the black and gold faithful salivating ahead of the season, while there was enough from Eels' new boy Chris Sandow to suggest brighter times ahead for Parramatta.

Marshall and Moltzen laid on three of the Tigers' four first-half tries - each coming up with a crisp cut-out pass to set up four-pointers before working together to send Matt Utai over for his second of the night.

The 20-6 halftime scoreline wasn't added to until just before the fulltime siren when Vai Toutai scored for the Eels, the standard falling away as both coaches emptied their benches.

There was no Jarryd Hayne, Nathan Hindmarsh, Reni Maitua or recruit Willie Tonga for the Eels, but it was Parramatta's $550,000 man Sandow that the blue and gold fans among the 13,622 crowd were most interested in seeing.

The former Souths man was busy without being spectacular in 54 minutes on the paddock, a neat cross-field kick for Esi Tonga to score being his highlight of the night.

It was countered by an intercept from near his own line which he butchered when he ignored flying winger Ken Sio in support, only to be run down 10 metres out from the Tigers line.

Sandow never returned after that effort, the nuggety halfback taking a few minutes to regain his breath before taking a seat on the bench.

The Tigers lost Liam Fulton with a nasty cut under the left eye while Eels prop Mitchell Allgood lasted just three minutes before leaving the field with concussion.

Was at the game parra offered very little. Tigers had complete control of the game. Just toying with the opposition. Going to be a long season for parra as they have little on what I saw. Also sandow looks severely overweight and predictable. Jeez looks like he spent have his money in the pokies and Kfc

From the Eels POV

Sandow spark not enough as Eels go down to Tigers
Doug MacDougall - Eels Media
11/02/2012 8:53:58 PM


The Pirtek Parramatta Eels showed glimpses of their 2012 potential tonight but it wasn’t enough, going down 20-12 in the inaugural Sean Burns Memorial Shield at Bluetongue Stadium, Gosford.

Coach Steve Kearney opted to rest skipper Nathan Hindmarsh and Jarryd Hayne from the match, with Taulima Tautai (second row) and Cheyse Blair (wing) coming into the starting lineup.

The Eels lost Mitch Allgood early when he was knocked out cold while attempting to tackle Aaron Woods. Allgood, heavily concussed, had to be assisted from the field.

Despite the loss the Eels looked dangerous early, with Chris Sandow attacking the right side of the Tigers defence and going close to scoring on a couple of occasions.

It was the Tigers that struck first however, a beautiful cut-out pass from Benji Marshall finding Matt Utai for a try in the corner.

The Eels repelled several Tigers attacks to hit back midway through the first half, with Chris Sandow the architect. Sandow’s cross-field bomb was pinpoint, finding Esi Tonga on the fly who touched down to score.

With the scores locked at 6-all, the Eels looked close to going ahead from another Sandow bomb only for Justin Horo to knock on in-goal. The Tigers made the Eels pay minutes later, with Gareth Ellis busting through a gap to send Blake Ayshford over to score.

The Tigers backed it up with another try minutes later after the Eels failed to recover a Benji Marshall high ball. Tigers halfback Tim Moltzen through a deft left-to-right ball to Ayshford, who set up Beau Ryan for the try.

A questionable offside penalty against the Eels two minutes from halftime put the Blue and Golds under pressure once again, and Marshall took full advantage, running a slick play down the left flank to send Utai over for his second. The NRL All Stars five-eighth didn’t have the best night with the boot though, hitting the uprights with two of his conversions, leaving the halftime score at 20-6.

After some to and fro’ing for the majority of the second half it was Sandow again who threatened to get the Eels back on the front foot, intercepting a Tigers pass to run 90 metres but getting pulled up metres short of the line. Sandow was assisted from the field following the try-saving tackle from Moltzen.

The Eels’ night didn’t really improve from there, with handling errors thwarting any attempt on the Tigers line. A consolation try on the full-time to NYC centre Vai Toutai gave the Eels faithful something to smile about, which was converted by Joseph Paulo from the sideline. Otherwise, the second half failed to live up to the exciting first stanza, with both coaches using the opportunity to test their positional depth.

Following the match, Eels CEO Bob Bentley and Tigers counterpart Stephen Humphreys were on hand with relatives of the late Sean Burns – former Eels and Tigers strength and conditioning coach who died tragically earlier this month - present the Memorial Shield to the winning captain.
