The Bears take the competition points, but the Frank Hyde Shield is shared for 2017

Details of the 25th Round NSWRL Intrust Super Premiership NSW match between Newtown and North Sydney, played at Henson Park on Saturday, 26th August 2017 by Glen ‘Bumper’ Dwyer.

The Newtown Jets ended their 2017 ISP NSW season with a 16-12 loss to old foundation club rivals North Sydney. The Bears led 16-12 at halftime, with neither side scoring any further points in the second half. As Newtown had beaten Norths 16-12 at North Sydney Oval on 14th May, both clubs had won one game each this year and most unusually had identical points for and against. On that basis the Frank Hyde Shield was a drawn series for 2017, with Newtown remaining the custodians having won the Shield in 2016.

North Sydney 6-0.

Jets making errors and looking disjointed at the 8th minute mark.

Another penalty to Norths 10 metres out from Newtown’s tryline.

Several Newtown players spoken to en masse by referee Przeklasa-Adamski.

Norths opt for a tap penalty.

Another penalty to the Bears in the 11th minute and Norths take a tap again

And now another penalty to Norths.

By this stage a big section of the reunion day crowd is baying for the referee’s blood!

12th minute; Jason Schirnack is sin-binned.

With such a wealth of possession Norths work an overlap on their left side and Tasi scores in the NW corner in the 13th minute.

Not converted. Norths lead 10-0 after 14 minutes.

Bears make a handling error at their own end in the 15th minute, and now the Jets get a crack at Norths tryline.

Newtown looking more determined and purposeful in their mid-field carries.

Schirnack is back on in the 22nd minute.

Norths adopt the tactic of kicking for the sideline on their final tackles.

Paulo and Brown constantly trying to create attacking opportunities for Newtown.

Paulo looks impressive as he moves forward with the ball in hand in the 28th minute.

Tyla Tamou nearly caught inside his own in-goal but he just makes it back into the field of play, avoiding the goal-line drop-out situation.

Norths get a scrum feed 20 metres out from the Newtown tryline in the 32nd minute

Norths create another overlap, this time through their right side attack and Miski scores in the NE corner

A disappointing outcome, as the Jets have had the better of play in the previous 15 minutes

Half-Time: North Sydney leads 16-12.

All to play for in the second half.

Norths are finals-bound but are keen on wresting back possession of the Frank Hyde Shield.

Several members of the Hyde family are present at the match.

Ground announcer John Lynch remarks that this game could break wide open to either team, or it could end in a draw.

Second half:

Mercurial try-scorer Tasi goes close to scoring from a high kick early in the second half

Norths continue to kick over the sideline on the 5th .

They go for a 40/20 in 44th minute which goes very close.

Jets aren’t making much ground working the ball out from their own line.

A good kick by Paulo, chased well by Jets defenders trapping Norths in their in-goal

Jets go on the attack at Norths end but the ball goes to ground

Crowd screaming blue murder that Norths are lying on tackled Jets players with no penalties being awarded (in contrast to the first half)

Norths go very close with another attempted 40/20 in 55th minute

Penalty to Newtown for a head high tackle by Norths player

Paulo guides another good grubber kick towards the Norths in-goal but it is splendidly gathered up by Levido in 56th minute

Paulo’s next attempted grubber lick isn’t quite so good, with Norths gaining easy possession in 58th minute

The game is in the balance, with both teams carrying the ball to either end

Despite the occasional errors, the crowd is getting their money’s worth in terms of a tense contest

Norths strip the ball in a multiple-tackle and Newtown gets a penalty

63rd min: Clydsdale is across the line but is held up by Norths defenders

(A member of the Norths coaching staff tells me after the game they spent a fair bit of video time analysing Clydsdale’s dummy-half stratagems)

64th and 65th minutes: Two penalties to Norths in quick succession

The Bears try to create an overlap but the ball flies out over the eastern sideline

68th min: Kurt Dillon is maintaining his reputation as one of the hardest working front-rowers in the ISP NSW

(Dillon is rewarded on Monday, 28th August with selection in the ISP NSW team of the Year!)

In the 69th minute, Norths knock on a high kick and then there is a penalty to Newtown

There is a good standard grubber kick into Norths in-goal in the 70th minute, but it just curves around and goes across the touch-in-goal line without having to be handled by a Norths defender. Brent Anderson goes very close to grounding the ball.

Norths get their chance but their in-goal grubber kick goes dead in the 72nd minute, and the Jets get a 7-tackle set

It’s six again to Newtown at Norths end in the 74th minute

An attempted intercept by Norths nearly comes off, but Newtown gets a penalty 10 metres out from Norths line

(A Norths player being replaced leaves the field excruciatingly slowly, giving his team-mates some valuable breather time!)

75th minute: Kurt Kara goes desperately close to scoring to the left of the goal-posts.

(He announces his retirement from rugby league after the game. It would have been a marvellous send-off to this tremendous Jets stalwart had he scored the winning try).

The Jets win a scrum against the feed (by pushing) but the referee sets the scrum again! (SMH journalist Peter FitzSimons would go ballistic if he saw this.)

Norths make quite a bit of ground in the next set.

Norths kick the ball over the sideline in the 76th minute running the clock down.

77th minute: Jets can’t handle the ball just after the Bears had turned over possession

Norths turn the ball over midfield in the 78th minute.
