Blacktown Workers suffer heavy loss in NSW Cup

Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles turned in a disappointing performance in a 38-10 loss to the St George-Illawarra Dragons today in round four of the NSW Cup.

The Sea Eagles trailed 16-0 at half-time at WIN Stadium with former Manly winger Christian Tuipulotu scoring four tries for the Dragons.

The home side got off to an early flyer to lead 10-0 after 13 minutes through tries to ex-Manly prop Alec Tuitavake andTuipulotu.

After a weight of possession inside Manly’s quarter, the Dragons jumped to a 16-0 lead with a second try to Tuipulotu. The score remained that way to half-time.

The Dragons caught the Sea Eagles short in defence for winger Sione Finau to cross for a 20-0 lead four minutes after half-time.

Six minutes later, Dragons half-back Jonah Glover leapt high to defuse a bomb for a 26-0 lead before Manly crossed for their first try through winger Cameron Brown in the 56th minute.

Tuipulotu then crossed for his third try six minutes later for a 32-4 lead before Brown crossed for his second converted try to leave the Sea Eagles trailing 32-10.

The Dragons then went to a 38-10 lead when Tuipulotu crossed out wide for his fourth try.

Blacktown Workers now play Penrith Panthers at 4 Pines Park on Saturday, April 6, at 3pm.
