Everybody just wants to be with each other, they love each other.”The Rebels scored first through Daniel Rushworth in the fifth minute and it wasn’t for another eight minutes before the Sydney scored their second thanks to Jeremy Locke.Locke’s touchdown opened up the floodgates as three more touchdowns were scored in the final few minutes of the first half with the Rebels leading 4-1 at the break.Both teams exchanged touchdowns before the Cobras scored twice more to be behind by one.For the last 10 minutes, it was a nail-biting affair as neither team gave an inch.Cobras’ wing Kate Barker had a chance to level the score but couldn’t grasp Ryan Jacks’ pass.The Rebels were able to hold on for the win, which gave them their 38th consecutive NTL win and their sixth mixed open title.“Brisbane lifted the tempo from last year, they are a great opponent,” Frost said.The players of the match were Gareth Young (Rebels) and Candice Ashley (Cobras).

first_imgMarcelino in stunning Batshuayi attack: Not to Valencia nor Primera standardsby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveValencia coach Marcelino launched a furious attack on Michy Batshuayi after their Copa del Rey defeat to Sporting Gijon.Marcelino blasted the on-loan Chelsea striker in an amazing personal attack.”I think we have to bring players in for up front. It is clear that patience in some cases has already run out. In the first minute we could have put ourselves ahead. It’s the clearest chance I’ve seen in six months of competition and we did not even shoot at the goal, this is not like a player from the Primera nor Valencia,” the coach fumed in reference to Batshuayi, who was hauled off at halftime.He added that “I do not make the changes to point to anyone. I make the changes depending on the performance I see. Of the effort, of the intention, of what I see. I try to be fair and from there I modify.”Interestingly, on-loan Derby striker Nick Blackman featured for victors Sporting Gijon.
