Neil Henrys men sit just onewin below the top three, but for the Cowboys to be genuine top eight contenders they need to start winning on the road, something they havemanaged to do only five times over the past two seasons. Barba key for Bulldogs AN in-form Ben Barba looms as the key for the Bulldogswhen they take on South Sydney in todays NRL clash at ANZ Stadium. Benny Barba has been outstanding, Bulldogs skipper Andrew Ryan said. I think the good thing about him is that not only does he score points and all that stuff (in attack), but (hes also working hard on) his positional play. Tim Grant of Penrith is tackled by Manlys Jason King and Glenn Stewart last night Picture: MARK EVANS Matai, Hopoate run rampant STEVE Matai put his hand up for New Zealand Test selection with a barnstorming two-try effort in Manlys 22-16 NRL victory against Penrith at Brookvale Oval last night. While Matai scored the tries, his efforts were also supported by another fine performance from young Manly fullback Will Hopoate, again filling in for the injured Brett Stewart, who has missed the past four rounds with injury. Hopoate thrilled fans with a perfect cut-out pass for Matais second try in the 46th minute and a 40m kick-return four minutes later. Matai, and Manly fiveeighth Kieran Foran, did their Kiwi chances no harm with confident games ahead of the May 6 Test against Australia at Skilled Park. The win rockets the Sea Eagles into the top four for the first time this season and extends their winning streak to three matches. Manly was not always in control, with Penrith dominating possession and field position in the opening 20 minutes. Only dogged goal-line defence from the Sea Eagles stopped the Panthers from jumping out to a healthy lead. The home team opened the scoring in the 16th minute after a brilliant Jamie Lyon flick pass fooled Penrith duo Michael Jennings and David Simmons before finding the hands of winger Michael Oldfield, who tiptoed the sideline and crossed for a try in the corner. Manly surged further ahead in the 29th minute, taking advantage of a Sandor Earl error, with Foran taking the ball from the scrum and sending Matai in for a 10-0 lead. Loss leaves NT playing for pride By GREY MORRIS A DISAPPOINTING 3-2 loss to South Australia yesterday has left the Territory womens under-18 hockey side playing for pride and seventh place in a national championship match against Tasmania today. Goals from Brooke Anderson and Caitlin Porter were not enough to beat the Croweaters, who the Territory beat on Wednesday in a round robin game. We didnt play our best hockey, coach Melissa Hall said. Our passing game that has been so good let us down this time. Caitlins fourth goal from as many corner hits was a positive but in the end we were on the wrong end of the result. The baby Pearls threw everything at their opponents in the final minutes, including substituting their goalkeeper in a bid to find the draw or win they needed to pro gress to the fifth and sixth playoff. Weve got to get ourselves right for the next match against Tassie, who we are more than capable of beating, Hall said. But it will be tough, weve got to regroup and play good hockey and we can turn things around.
