James Tedesco has orchestrated one
of the biggest boilovers of the NRL
season, putting in a five-star display
in the Wests Tigers’ 34-16 win over
Melbourne last night.
Tedesco lit up the 7419-strong
crowd at Leichhardt Oval, crossing
for two tries and setting up another
two as the Tigers jumped off the
bottom of table and put a dent in the
Storm’s top four aspirations.
After the Storm looked to be sailing
to an easy win, the zippy No 1 injected
himself into the game, having a hand
in four of his side’s six tries.
While the side’s top eight hopes
were killed off several weeks ago, they
eased pressure on coach Jason Taylor
as they broke a five-game losing
After the Tigers took a surprise 12-
10 half-time lead, the Storm snatched
back the advantage at the 44-minute
mark when Jesse Bromwich —
after beating a biting charge at the
judiciary during the week — ran onto
a sweet Cooper Cronk ball.
Tedesco then imposed himself on
the contest. First he drew Storm
winger Matt Duffie to send Pat
Richards over before sealing the
match in the 69th when he steamed
onto a lovely Mitchell Moses short
For the Storm, it was a crucial loss.
Not only did they blow a chance to
stay in touch with the top four, they
could find themselves on the edge
of the eight after the weekend. They
looked to be cruising at 10-0 thanks
to a Marika Koroibete double inside
However Koroibete’s night soon
turned on a dime as he let in the
next three tries, allowing the Tigers
to power to a 12-10 advantage at the
Tedesco scored his side’s second
after burning Koroibete for pace on
He then threw the last pass when
Koroibete came rushing in off his
wing to send Kevin Naiqama sailing
over just before the half-time siren.
During the week Tigers coach
Jason Taylor said his charges had
been showing promising signs in
the previous fortnight despite heavy
losses to the Sydney Roosters and
He was vindicated after his side
toppled one of the competition’s
frontrunners in convincing fashion.
“I knew the guys weren’t going to
give up,” Taylor said.
“ We’ve gone to another level the last
few weeks. It hasn’t looked like it on
the scoreboard. We’ve talked about it
a lot this year, but the last two games
against two of the absolute top teams
who played well, we had some really
“And tonight we were really strong
on the back of it.”
Storm mentor Craig Bellamy
declared “we’ve got a problem” after
having their biggest score of the year
put on them with all of the Tigers’
points coming in the last 52 minutes.
“Wehad agood startand we went a
bit soft after that,” Bellamy said.
“ We didn’t really want to keep
working hard like we were.
Subconsciously we were leaving it to
our team-mates. We didn’t have any
ball but we didn’t back it up with any
sort of defence. ”
The brute force of Jared Waerea-
Hargreaves and the flair of Michael
Jennings has combined to hand the
Sydney Roosters a dramatic 38-28 win
over Canterbury at Allianz Stadium.
In one of the games of the NRL
season, the Roosters raced out to a 22-0
lead after just 25 minutes and the game
looked all but over before the Bulldogs
mounted a spirited fightback to lead 28-
22 with 23 minutes left.
A Blake Ferguson try brought the
Roosters to within two points in the 69th
minute, before Michael Jennings aptly
flew like Superman in the superhero
round to ground a Mitchell Pearce kick
to put the home side ahead 30-28.
It was an effort reminiscent of Jennings’
match sealing four-pointer in the 2013
grand final and came on the back of
some inspired charges from Waerea-
Hargreaves after the Dogs snatched the
The win last night is the Roosters’
seventh a row and keeps them on track
for a top four finish. It was soured
slightly by a wrist injury to prop Sam
Moa, who is expected to miss two weeks.
The Roosters blitzed the visitors early
with tries through Daniel Tupou in the
fourth and 14th minutes, Roger Tuivasa-
Sheck in the 11th minute and Jennings
in the 24th minute as the Tricolours,
sporting their Captain America jerseys,
raced out to a big lead.
Ill-discipline from the Roosters and
some impressive fight from the visitors
worked the Dogs back into the contest.
Shaun Lane struck first for Canterbury
in the 29th minute before Josh Morris
crashed his way over four minutes
through some soft defence out wide,
then Corey Thompson scored just before
halftime for a score of 22-16.
Trent Hodkinson dummied his way
through over in the 51st minute and
when Thompson scored his second six
minutes later the Dogs had surged to
The Roosters were not done with
and finally stemmed the flow of 28
unanswered points with a try to Blake
Ferguson is the 69th minute, before
James Maloney’s conversion hit the post.
But that was immaterial when Jennings
crossed before Jackson Hastings added
one more for the home side in the final
minute to seal a memorable win.
Moa was replaced in the 34th minute
due to a dislocated wrist and taken to
hospital for an operation.
Roosters interchange prop Kane
Evans was put on report for a massive
hit deemed a shoulder charge on Sam
Kasiano in the 33rd minute that sat the
Kiwi international down on the Allianz
Roosters’ mentor Trent Robinson
enjoyed the match from the coach’s box.
“ I loved it,” he said.
“ It was a game where we didn’t do what
we wanted to do ... we let emotion get to
us after 25 minutes and we went off the
boil a little bit. We were in a dog fight,
“ It was an awesome win.”
Robinson saved special praise for
“A real credit to him; he decided to
change the momentum of the game,” he
Canterbury coach Des Hasler thought
his side had stolen a comeback win when
they went ahead, but conceded their
slow start cost them dearly.
“ It was a funny kind of game,” Hasler
said. “ We played a lot of good football
to come back. I thought we had done
enough to win it. We should have put
the game away because it was in our
control. But (before that) it was a case of
the damage being self-inflicted.”
Ian Bell guided England to an eight-
wicket victory over Australia in the third
test at Edgbaston today to put the hosts
2-1 up in the series with two matches to
Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an
unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after
England were set to 121 to win on the
third day at Edgbaston where a dominant
performance banished memories of a
heavy defeat at Lord’s.
England lost Alastair Cook (7) and
Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on
edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia
captain Michael Clarke, made his
second 50 of the match to spark raucous
celebrations after Root hit the winning
The hosts took command on day one
when Australia were shot out for 136,
James Anderson, who will miss the next
test with a side strain, taking six wickets
— a feat matched by the recalled Steven
Finn in the second innings.
“It’s been a fantastic three days,” Cook
“I don’t think the pitch was 140 all out
but the way Jimmy bowled, backed up by
Steve was fantastic.”
Victory at either Trent Bridge, in the
fourth test which starts on August 6,
or The O val in the last match would
guarantee England winning back the
Ashes which they so dismally surrendered
in a 5-0 loss in Australia in 2013-14.
England ’s celebrations will be tempered,
however, by the major blow of losing
Anderson, possibly for the rest of the
Australia’s tail wagged today, adding 97
to their overnight total before they were
dismissed for 265 just before lunch.
England had hoped to quickly take the
three remaining second-innings wickets
but Australia pushed their lead to 120
before Moeen Ali removed Mitchell
Starc had led Australia’s resistance
with some big hits in his 58, sharing
an eighth-wicket stand of 64 with
wicketkeeper Peter Nevill (59) who held
up England for 147 balls in compiling a
maiden test half-century.
Finn eventually made the breakthrough
when Nevill was caught down the leg
side, the paceman taking a test best 6-79
after a two-year absence from the side.
Clarke, who admitted his poor form
with the bat was a big cause for concern,
said credit must go to England.
“I was proud of how the boys fought,”
he said. “I think around 180-200 would
have given us a chance but England
played well. O ur goal is to win the series,
I still believe we can do that. We have to
play well but it’s pretty simple.”
