It was a big day for the ISC Cup, with the Warriors getting their first win, the two new sides getting put through their paces, and the Bulldogs facing their first defeat.
Things opened up with the top two sides, the Southern Bulldogs Blue and the Central Roosters Red facing off. In their former encounter the Bulldogs somewhat comfortably tamed the Roosters, but in the games between the somewhat fresh Roosters side have been forming their strengths and cohesiveness as a unit.
Next was the Western Warriors taking on the Bulldogs second side. With two tries in the opening 4 minutes, the Warriors secured themselves the first lead to be held in any match so far. While the Southern Bulldogs White showed moments of a comeback, often matching the Warriors try for try, a Warriors play that saw their second half opening kick recovered and converted to a try all inside 15 seconds meant that the second half was just a matter of holding their ground.
Finally the Central Roosters Blue took on the Eastern Eels. The without-a-bench Roosters struggled to hold off the Eels attack, reinforced by the return of key players. The game was called off due to injury early in the second h
After round 6 the Southern Bulldogs Blue hold onto their position at the top by percentage over the Central Roosters. The Eastern Eels maintain third place with their second win, and the Southern Bulldogs White edge out the Western Warriors on percentage.
