Team Lists: 2024 KOE NSW Cup Round 10

Speaking with Head Coach, Pat Weisner, post-game he stated "Absolutely awful conditions meant that the game was always going to be low scoring, tight and down to a bounce of the ball or 50/50 decision. We defended very well again, and were never behind in the match. We spent the whole game protecting our lead, which we did successfully until the final play of the game". Weisner went on to comment "Also very disappointed that we gave the Roosters so many opportunities in the last 15 mins due to our errors, but the weather had such a huge impact on this game that it's difficult to take much out of it other than the point we got for the draw. We move on hoping for a dryer track this week.". This Sunday we go again and head back to Bear Park for Mother's Day as we take on the Parramatta Eels, kick off at 3pm. Pop it in the diary now and see you there! Check out the team named to pull on a red & black jersey this weekend >>

As the red & black and white & black retro jerseys and Junior Bears piled into North Sydney Oval, the excitement was high to be finally back at Bear Park for the 2024 season. After extreme weather hit the east coast on Friday, the sight of blue sky and a blaring sun on game day was welcomed by all. And the oval really was a thing of beauty! The grass was brilliant green, the historic Ken Irvine Scoreboard in action, the cold Bear Park Brews flowed, the live bland blared its retro tunes and the footy on the field was on fire. What a way to kick off our home game series than with Bears v Magpies in the first clash of the Jason Taylor Cup. To commemorate Retro Round, the Bears team donned the iconic red & black hoops "Heritage" jersey for the game.

The trip across the Tasman didn't slow our Cup team down, as they came out all guns blazing in Pukekohe. From the get go the team was switched on and worked hard to take a good lead keeping the Warriors to just one try in the first half. Sua Fa'alogo got the Bears on the board with a beautiful chip and chase converted by Keagan Russell-Smith. Only moments later Bears were attacking the line again, Russell-Smith puts through a sweat grubber to the corner that is easily picked up by Kieran Hayman and grounded. Six minutes along and Fa'alogo makes a break off a Russell-Smith offload and darts for the white line, Russell-Smith converts.

Team Lists: 2024 KOE NSW Cup Round 2

In hot and windy conditions, we got our Knock-On Effect NSW Cup 2024 season underway last Sunday as we took on St George Illawarra Dragons in Wollongong. Only five minutes in, Ben Talty got the Bears on the board with a straight and strong push for the line. The Dragons quickly answered jumping on a Bears mistake to even the scores at 4 a piece, and there the score remained for the rest of the half. Both sides seemed to be finding their combinations in the first half, and although the boys in the red & black made a number of errors, mostly in over enthusiasm, their fierce defence kept them in the game. "They had 10 sets attacking our tryline and didn't score, so we knew if we could control the ball, we would be in with a chance despite using a lot of petrol in the 1st half." stated Head Coach Pat Weisner. On the field, our captain, Kurt De Luis, could be clearly heard throughout the venue applauding the team every time they held out a set of six. His leadership and positive energy infectious.

2023 Team Lists: Preliminary Final

As the other semi-finalists in the Knock On Effect NSW Cup battled it out last Saturday at North Sydney Oval, the Bears enjoyed the week off. A week off from game day that is, the team has been working extra hard on the training field and in the gym. Securing the minor premiership was a fantastic achievement, but the job is not done yet and all at the club are fully focused on taking it all the way this season. That said, finals are a journey, and the next step is taking on the Rabbitohs at Leichhardt Oval this Saturday.
