Defence sting the Scorpions in final

first_imgBy BEN HARRISA tremendous defensive effort from Queensland Stingrays ensured the men’s Elite Eight trophy remained in the northern state for another year.Playing their first men’s Elite Eight final, the Stingrays showed no sign of nerves to shut out the 2011 champions New South Wales Scorpions 5-2 in front of a huge crowd at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium.The Scorpions were a shadow of the team that had played in the earlier days of the competition.Their attack was shut down by a superb Stingrays defensive outfit.“It was our basis of the whole campaign was to back our line D [defence]. And it worked,” Stingrays captain Nathan Jones said.Defence played a huge part in the first half as the score at the break was 1-nil to the Stingrays.The lone touchdown came from a great move, which saw Graeme Clancy pass to Kristopher McMurdy who then turned it inside to Michael Singh.The second half was a complete opposite to the first.Before the fans could return to their seats after half-time, the Stingrays extended their lead to three touchdowns thanks to Peter Norman and Tristan Wagg.Midway through the second half, James de Veer showed a great pair of hands to knock a Norman long ball in the air and then regathered to plant it down over the line.Two minutes later Jordan Watts made it 5-0 and it looked like the Scorpions could end the match with a doughnut next to their name.But they managed to score two consolation touchdowns to Jordan Horo and Cain Rangi.The Stingrays’ victory in the men’s and the Queensland Chiefs’ win in the women’s division meant Queensland won both Elite Eight divisions.“There is a bit of rivalry [with New South Wales] but we also play the Queensland boys all the time and we like beating them. We come down here and they’ve [Scorpions] got some good players. We just love winning.”Player of the final was Stingrays’ Adam Pryde and for the third time Sam Brisby was named player of the series.QUEENSLAND STINGRAYS 5 (Jordan Watts, Michael Singh, Peter Norman, Tristan Wagg, James de Veer touchdowns) def NEW SOUTH WALES SCORPIONS 2 (Jordan Horo, Cain Rangi touchdowns).Related LinksMen’s Elite Eightlast_img read more

He’s a great professional player who has the desire to be here.”Another player capturing interest is summer arrival Felipe Anderson from Lazio, who has scored four goals in his last four outings.“I think Felipe is improving,” added Pellegrini.“He played a very good game and he knows more about what he should be doing and not doing.
