Bulls charge on
The Hills Bulls are into the second round of the Sydney Shield rugby league finals.
They comfortably accounted for Cabramatta 30-14 at New Era Stadium on Saturday.
Wentworthville Magpies thrashed Mounties 76-22 at Ringrose Park in the other match, and the Hills will now meet Mounties in a preliminary final at Lidcombe Oval this Saturday.
The Bulls established the winning foundation against Cabramatta when they stuck to their structure and led 20-10 at half-time.
More discipline and two further tries saw The Bulls have a match-winning lead, and then strong defence saw them hold out a Cabramatta who couldn't capitalise on a run of possession.
A late try only made the score respectable.
Goals kept coming
Kristina Bryce has returned with not just a silver medal but as the star of Australia's World Youth Netball Championships campaign in Glasgow. New Zealand beat Australia 52-47 in the final but Baulkham Hills' Bryce scored 29 goals for the Aussies through the campaign.
