Game management key for Norths against Bond after missed opportunity against Sunnybank

Norths coach Dan Ritchie says his side blew an opportunity to claim their first win of the season in a 20-all draw with Sunnybank last weekend.

Norths scored two early tries and led 14-0 for the majority of the first half before letting an in-form Sunnybank side back into the match.

The Eagles kicked two penalty goals in the final 10 minutes to lead 20-15 but conceded a try after the 80th minute moments after causing what should have been a match winning turnover.

“It was definitely a game that got away from us. It was a missed opportunity but in saying that, we lost an entire front row and a halfback in the first 50 minutes to injury and we found a way to hang on,” Ritchie told Rugby News.
