Two Blues win ‘Rod Phelps Cup’

IN a thrilling encounter, Western Sydney Two Blues Rugby Union have won back the Rod Phelps Cup on the weekend against Norths.

Played between Two Blues and Norths yearly, the Cup is in recognition of Wallaby legend, Rod Phelps, who played for both Two Blues and Norths.
Two Blues General Manager Randy Basra said it was brilliant to have Rod and his family not only watch and present the Cup after the game but to also join the team in the sheds for the victory song.
Two Blues scored the first try within 35 seconds of the game starting after some slick work from Siti Moceidreke and Tailiki Nadredre tore Norths apart on the wing.
At half time it looked like it was going to be a try after try as each teams scored plenty of points and Norths led at half time 21-19.
In the second half, Two Blues came out and scored some early points to take the lead 26-21.
With 100 seconds left, Two Blues attacked as a mistake by Norths gave Two Blues a scrum and a penalty.
Reece Suesue stepped up from 35m and near the sideline and converted the penalty to take the lead 29-28 and get the victory.
“Two Blues showed they are very dangerous when attacking the ball and scored a variety of tries, and also showed defensively, they are hard to break,” Basra said.
