Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles suffered a 30-0 loss to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in round three of the NSW Cup at HE Laybutt Field, Blacktown, on Monday night.

A chip kick from half-back Kyle Flanagan saw five-eighth Jake Averillo opening the scoring through a converted try for a 6-0 lead to the Bulldogs after six minutes.

Following a close tryscoring opportunity to Blacktown Workers five-eighth Eiden Ackland, the  Bulldogs went to a 12-0 lead through a converted try to centre Jacob after 19 minutes.

With 10 minutes remaining, Ackland put another high kick up as the Sea Eagles searched for their first points. Centre Tolutau Koula jumped up and caught the ball before offloading to forward Jacob  Sykes, who was unfortunately tackled five metres out.

The Bulldogs then scored on the stroke of half-time through second-rower Reece Hoffman after shifting the ball down the short side for an 18-0 lead at the break.

Blacktown Workers had their chances early in the second half but were denied by some scramble defence and pressure. Half-back Jake Toby danced around defenders and almost slipped away before winger Raymond Tuimalo Vaega scored a tackle later only to be denied on a forward pass call.

The Bulldogs capitalised in the 54th minute through back-rower Kurtis Morrin after a break in play down the right wing. Flanagan converted for a 24-0 lead.

With just over nine minutes of play remaining, Blacktown Workers prop Toff Sipley was sent to the sin-bin for a scuffle. A short time later, Ackland was unfortunately stretchered from the field after an awkward tackle.

Canterbury prop Billy Tsikrikas then crossed two minutes from full-time for the 30-0 victory.

Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles remain winless after three rounds.
