The Rock-itt : September 2010
exhibition of perfect no nonsense footy. Jamie Lyon led our backs into the fray with determined running and using beautiful tactical control as he sent the ball swirling into the waiting arms of his team mates. The now well established firm of Foran and Hodkinson dominated, backed superbly by Matai, Robinson, Williams, and let's not forget young- gun replacement full back, William Hopoate, who held his own alongside his champion team mates. Overall, it was a great effort by our Sea Eagles. After the great win over the Storm at Brookie it was off to Kogarah Oval for the show down with competition leaders, the Dragons. Unfortunately, we could not repeat the previous round's performance and were beaten by a better team on the night, however I don't believe there is another outfit in the competition that would have beaten either the Dragons or the Sea Eagles on the night.

There's a good chance that we may face off against the Dragons in the grand final but as you know, nothing is for certain in this great game of rugby league. Next cab off the rank was the New Zealand Warriors. It is always a tough game against the boys from the land of the long white cloud and although the contest took place on the hallowed turf of Brookie Oval, the Warriors showed that they can beatoughsonofaguntohandleat home or away. Our Beaches' boys had their work cut out for them as the Warriors put everything into the contest and made us work for every point. We came out on top and the win slotted us into 5th place on the NRL ladder board. If we had any jubilation from the win over the Warriors then it was
