Kings, Newington & Scots cause upsets on wild weekend to shake up GPS title race

After a wet and wild weekend of first XV rugby, just two competition points seperate the entire competition following a series of upsets in round three.

Kings kicked a late penalty goal to beat Joeys, Newington fought back from 20-7 down to defeat Shore and Scots scored in the 69th minute to beat Riverview.

Kings 21-19 Joeys

Kings fullback Talen Risati kicked a long range penalty goal with just minutes remaining to help his side claim a thrilling 21-19 win over competition leaders Joeys on a wet and miserable afternoon at North Parramatta.

Kings kicked two penalty goals early in the match but trailed 7-3 at half time and 12-6 early in the second half following tries to Joeys’ forwards Charlie Ghattas and Justice Taumoepeau.
