In a game filled with plenty of emotion after last years Grand Final, the Redlegs came out with a point to prove booting the first three majors of the contest. The Legs controlled most of the possession in the early stages of the match and made North pay with their quick ball movement and transition from defence into attack.
The Legs had a handy five goal advantage heading into the main break, although weren’t as efficient going inside 50 in the second term.
Bampton was lively up forward for Norwood as he booted his fourth of the contest six minutes into the last. As the match went on Norwood weren’t to be denied, as they continued to absorb numerous attacks from the Roosters. As Bampton kicked his fifth from 35 metres, the result was all but put beyond doubt cementing Norwood’s fifth win in a row.
