Feeder Report: Round 5 & 6

The Sunshine Coast Falcons have made it back-to-back wins in the HostPlus Cup, producing a clinical performance against the Souths Logan Magpies, running out convincing 48-12 winners. 

Storm’s big men asserted their dominance on the contest, Jack Howarth building off last week’s NRL showing with 187 run metres, one try assist and a whopping 11 tackle breaks.  

Development player Lazarus Vaalepu also topped the run metres chart for the match with 210m, while Chris Lewis put in a customary busy shift in the middle, racking up 30 tackles and 147 run metres.

Grant Anderson also continued his strong form at fullback after making his return from injury a few weeks prior, scoring a try and running for 154m. 

Meanwhile, in the Knock On Effect NSW Cup, a late comeback from the Parramatta Eels saw the North Sydney Bears go down 30-28 in Round 6. 

Tries to Kieran Hayman and Storm’s very own Dean Ieremia saw the Bears jump out to a 28-14 lead with 20 minutes to play, only for three Eels tries late in the piece seeing the visitors fall just short at the full-time siren.

Ieremia’s strong stint since returning from injury continued, with that try in the 48th minute complimenting his five tackle breaks and one try assist over the 80-minutes.
