The Rays and Rams battled it out in one of the slower games of the NRC season, before a speedy end saw a 34 all draw for the two Sydney conglomerates. Although the game was played in perfect conditions it was littered with handling errors and took both teams a long time to find their rhythm.

Our shared opportunity is to create a festival like event for Rugby each year between August and November in the west.
Early on the game was played within the middle of the pitch, neither the Rams nor the Rays gaining a significant advantage over the other. Within the first ten minutes there were 4 penalties before either team looked a chance. 17 minutes in The Rays Malietoa Hingano made a small break and looked dangerous, gaining ground to land within 10 metres from the line, however a good steal from the Rams quickly tried to get them out of trouble. The Rays however bounced back to gain a penalty and get a lineout 5 metres from the line before overthrowing the ball right into the Rams hands.
The Rays forwards held an advantage over the Rams pack in the first half. This of course meant the Rams usual style of play, utilising their strong and fast backs was slowed and neutralised their usual advantage in sunny conditions. This eventually resulted in the first points being scored by the Rays Kotani Ale scoring working off the back of a good break from Malietoa Hingano. The try was quickly converted by Matt Lucas with 22 minutes to go in the second half.
Greater Sydney came to a grinding halt against Queensland Country, who managed their first win of the season against the boys from the West of Sydney. Anthony Fainga’a would be one of the most relieved members of the Australian rugby community right now, while Jed Holloway will be thoroughly disappointed that his pack capitulated in the face of a rampant Greg Holmes. You probably could have put Jed Gillespie and Dave Lolohea out there and it wouldn’t have mattered.
The rams failed to stay out of trouble however when the Rays looked to have a strong position 5 metres out from the try line, but Guy Millar got sin binned for not staying on his feet forcing the interchange to come into play with an immediate scrum. Missing a man the Rams scrum got a huge push from the rays, with the backline confusing the defence to see Ed Gower get a try. With Matt Lucas off, Hamish Angus scored the conversion seeing the points go to 32-24 with 12 minutes to go.With the rams attacking in the next section of play the Rays looked loose and unplanned giving the Rams a huge chance to score. The Rams sent it wide as is their usual play, however a bad pass saw the ball knocked on and play go into a scrum. That didn’t stop the rams however when their scrum put in a huge push to have Dave Lolehea crash over the line to level the score with a conversion from Dane Chisholm.
