Second half collapse proves costly for Blacktown Workers

A disappointing second half collapse saw the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles go down 38-12 to South Sydney in the NSW Cup on Sunday.

In their first home match at HE Laybutt Field, Blacktown, since April, Blacktown Workers were well in the game after a solid first half to trail the Rabbitohs 16-12 at half-time.

However, the second 40 minutes all belonged to the Rabbitohs with the visitors running in five tries for 22 unanswered points to add to their three tries in the first half.

Wingers Steven Taupau sako and Alfred Smalley were the tryscorers for Blacktown Workers. Half-back Jamie Humphreys kicked two goals for Blacktown Workers.

The loss leaves Blacktown Workers in 12th place on the NSW Cup ladder with two wins from 14 matches. They remain just one point behind the 11th placed Western Suburbs Magpies as they look to get off the bottom of the ladder.

With no matches next weekend due to representative round, Blacktown Workers play the 10th placed Mounties at HE Laybutt Field, Blacktown, on Sunday, July 3, at 3pm.
