Trent Green was at his scheming best for Wingham in the Group Three Rugby League clash against Taree City.A VINTAGE performance from veteran halfback Trent Green steered Wingham to a engrossing 34-26 win over Taree City in the Group Three Rugby League game at Wingham.

This was one of the best matches of the season. Wingham, with Green running the operation, raced to an early 16-0 lead, reminiscent of the opening round clash.

However, the Bulls started to gain momentum through the forwards, led by second rower Thomas Berry and levelled up at 22-22 early in the second half. Two missed conversion attempts in the second half, the first by Sam Murray and the second by his elder brother Luke, proved costly for the Bulls.

At this stage Taree lookedthe better side. But the Tigers didn’t panic. There was a spectacular move involving skipper Kurt Lewis, who kicked into space and the ball was grabbed by quicksilver centre Tim Bridge, who then picked up winger Tyler Atkins. Atkins was tackled by desperate defenders but from the next play Lewis positioned Bridge and he was over. Winger Michael Bailey’s goal gave Wingham some breathing space and fittingly Green was involved in the last try when he put fullback Blake Sky through a gap.

The win was Wingham’s sixth on the trot and the Tigers remain on top of the pile with 16 points. All kudos to Green, whose game management was first class. He threw the final pass for three tries and was at his scheming best throughout the encounter.

Lewis and Bridge were dangerous in the backs for the Tigers while winger Bailey scored two smart tries and would be hard to leave out of a group side if one was chosen tomorrow. Bailey’s goal kicking was another positive for the home side.

Taree made most headway through the forwards, led by Berry, fellow interchange player Kyle Currey, prop Matt Toupeand second rower Will Clarke. Lock Matt Everitt was busy although he plays more of a running game these days. Two teenagers, fullback Dean Mills and centre Shannon Mullay, who is still eligible for under 18s, were bright.

It looked a matter of Wingham by how far after a quarter of an hour, after Bailey scored twice and Lewis once for the Tigers to lead 16-0.

Mullay crashed onto a pinpoint pass from Josh McCartney to open Taree’s account but the Bulls were penalised from the re-start and soon after Lewis sent Bridge over for his first. Taree centre/winger Daniel Morris was first to the ball from a Nathan Maher kick to bring up Taree’s dozen while just before the break Everitt took the ball from Adam Dale in a one-on-one strip and raced clear to score under the posts. The goal reduced the margin to 22-18 before Currey’s second half try squared it up.

The second half was a fluctuating affair, with Taree looking the more dangerous for most part. But Wingham maintained their composure before setting up for a strong finish, a point captain-coach Lewis noted at fulltime
