Parramatta winger Semi
Radradra has broken a 60-year
record in his side’s strong 28-16
win over the Wests Tigers at
ANZ Stadium last night.
An irresistible Radradra bagged
a second-half brace — his fifth
double in five games — and
had a hand in another as the
Eels made it three wins on the
trot. Not since Newtown’s Ray
Preston in 1954 has a player
scored five doubles in five games.
It caps off a positive week for the
club that included the signing of
prized recruit Kieran Foran.
The Tigers led 16-12 when
Radradra soared over Kevin
Naiqama to give his side the lead
in the 58th minute.
The flying Fijian then repeated
the effort and offloaded to
Sandow in the 68th, before
he received a Sandow pass to
complete the record in the 73rd.
His two tries now gives him
11 tries in five games and 16
for the season, tying him with
Canterbury ’s Curtis Rona as the
league’s leading tryscorer.
Parramatta’s Tim Mannah was
the unlikely source of first points
after he crashed over in the 12th
minute for his first try since
Team-mate Luke Kelly made
it two in two minutes when he
and Sandow exchanged passes
in the backfield following Corey
Norman’s one-handed offload.
But the Eels switched off after
that, allowing the home side to
post three consecutive tries and
take an unlikely 16-12 lead at
First Naiqama stood up
Radradra in the 20th minute
before latching onto a James
Tedesco grubber six minutes after
that. Tedesco then gave his side
the lead when he bounced off
three defenders to pop an offload
that ended in Pat Richards
crossing in the 34th.
Eels centre Brad Takairangi
was put on report for a shoulder
charge on Tedesco in the first
half, while Tigers for ward
Martin Taupau will also come
under scrutiny for a high shot on
Radradra in the second.
Eels coach Brad Arthur said
he gave his team a stern talking-
to at the half-time break after
giving up their early lead.
“ We turned up here after a
couple of quick tries and thought
we could just cruise to a soft
win,” he said.
“Our attitude wasn’t where it
needed to be in defence. They
scored a couple of soft tries.
(And) in the second half, we
didn’t play smart. We played
dumb. But at least in the second
half we had a change of attitude
towards our commitment to
putting our bodies on the line
and running a bit harder and
making our tackles.”
Tigers coach Jason Taylor said
he had issues
with a caning
in the penalty
Eels but was
the effort from
a weakened 17.
the weight of
count for the
game, 41 sets to
29 — simple as
that,” he said.
“ We made
like 75 more
tackles. (It was)
scoreboard but we’ve been talking
all year about performance. We’ve
been looking for performances
and that was a really strong
one tonight under really tough
conditions in the way that the
opposition kept getting penalties
and we got hardly any and it was
“I need to go and have a look
at (the penalties). There’s a tackle
and the ball comes out and
nobody can tell what happened
so we’ ll have a look at that and
I’ll talk to Tony Archer about
that situation and it’s as simple as
that.” — AAP

Greymouth won the Bennington Cup
in the West Coast inter-club badminton
competition, with a total of 28 points.
Hoki Chippies finished runners-up on
26 points, claiming the P Coll Challenge
Cup in the process. Hoki Shuttles
followed on 25 points while Hoki
Thunder were fourth on 23.
The overall winner for the first two
rounds of the competition, winning the
Dr P Davison Seaview Challenge Cup,
were the Hoki Shuttles on 64 points,
followed by Hoki Thunder and Hoki
Chippies on 61 points, Greymouth on 60
and South Westland on 26, having only
competed in one round.
In Hokitika, the Hoki Thunder and
the Hoki Shuttles played out some
great badminton with newcomers to
competition Anthony Jones, Katrina
Bowes and Ari Penberthy enjoying their
first taste of competition, Jones and
Bowes both notching up wins.
In Greymouth, the Hoki Chippies got
off to a good start in the doubles and
despite a comeback by Greymouth in the
singles to even out the score at 6-6, the
Chippies combinations were too strong.
Sean and Jenny Brown had a great three-
setter against Mark Beard and Carien
Pieterse, despite losing in the third, as did
Adrian Sheat and Jean Stainger against
Sam Reeves and Lisa Wieblitz.
Laura Gannaway and Alexis Bainbridge
also had a good tussle, Gannaway
winning the third.
A doubles tournament with ranked
drawn pairs will be played in Hokitika on
Thursday at 7pm.

The Black Ferns have done the
business, and in some style too.
They defeated USA 47-14, scoring
eight tries to two, to clinch the
inaugural Women’s Super Series in
Edmonton. In doing so, they beat
three of the top sides in the world
in the space of nine days and off very
limited preparation, so one must tip
one’s hat to them.
Their second half against the
USA was dynamic, pouring on the
pressure after leading 15-14 at the
break. Right wing Honey Hireme
was almost unstoppable with her
hat-trick, upping her tally to five for
the tournament, but she saved the
best for her final flourish, a brilliant
80m solo effort which showed off
her pace — fast — and her swer ve.
The Waikato flyer was rightly
awarded the player of the match,
but in truth the Black Ferns were
strong across the board, especially
at 10-12-13, where pivot Victoria
Subritzky-Nafatali capped a strong
tournament with a well-taken try,
the first of the game, and Chelsea
Alley added thrust to the midfield.
Centre Stacey Waaka had her best
outing of the series, in the position
where Huriana Manuel has often
cut capers for this team. Waaka
set up Hireme’s second try with a
lovely piece of deception and slick
pass, while she then scored off a
pinpoint crosskick by Subritzky-
Nafatali. Left wing Renee Wickliffe,
who also scored a try, was dangerous
all afternoon. Her try came from a
simple ‘miss two’ move with slick
hands. Fullback Selica Winiata gave
the last pass.
In the pack, there were some
yeoman displays, but the locks,
Charmaine Smith, who scored her
first test try from a lineout drive, and
Eloise Blackwell, were top value.
There was time for Emma Jensen to
come off the bench for her 49th cap
at halfback, drawing level with the
great Anna Richards for the most
Black Ferns caps, and for fellow
sub Janna Vaughan to bolt for a try
between the uprights.
USA were very competitive in the
first spell, scoring two nice tries, but
they were over-run in the second
and could not live with the Black
Ferns’ pace and continuity game.
Their errors compounded and they
paid a heavy price.

Queensland suspect State of Origin
subterfuge, but NSW coach Laurie
Daley insists injured hooker Robbie
Farah could still play in tomorrow ’s
series decider with a final decision on
his fitness unlikely until an hour before
kick-off at Suncorp Stadium.
Daley said yesterday that Farah
remained a chance of playing as his
recovery from hand surgery last week
continues. But Queensland veteran
Corey Parker indicated the maroons
are preparing as if back-up blues rake
Michael Ennis will play.
Farah has only been involved in
a limited capacity at blues training,
however Daley said he is pleased with
“ He probably did more than what we
thought he would do (yesterday),” Daley
“I won’t write him off, he is a bloke who
is passionate about playing for NSW, we
will give him every chance and see what
happens. Hopefully he will get through

After their two major pre-Origin III
hitouts on Saturday and Sunday at their
Coffs Harbour base, the blues flew to
Brisbane on Sunday afternoon. They had
a day off yesterday, ahead of their final
training session in the captain’s run at
Suncorp Stadium today.
However Farah’s availability might not
be confirmed until an hour before kick-
off, when the teams are named.
The NSW judiciary loophole that
has opened up Ennis’ availability, after
his one-match suspension, closed at
the conclusion of the match between
Parramatta and Wests Tigers last night.
Daley said the issue of Farah’s fitness
had not been a distraction in the lead-up
to game three.
“Robbie is the type of guy who puts the
team before himself,” Daley said. “ He is
very committed to NSW, he has been a
big part of our team, if he does play, we
know he will play well for us on a limited
Queensland expect to front up against
Ennis. “ It ’s funny how football works
sometimes, you keep plodding along and
hoping at some stage you get another
opportunity — this is his,” Parker said.
“If he’s playing that ’s great for him.
He’s been in that arena before. He’s
tough. He fits the mould quite well.
He’s one of those guys you hate to play
Captain Paul Gallen is also an injury
concern for the blues as he battles a rib
complaint sustained in Origin II.
Daley said Gallen also picked up an
undisclosed injury in training on Sunday,
but said the Cronulla skipper was not in
doubt for the decider.
