Two late tries to Country centre Moe Chokr saw Country grab a 22 all draw with City in the annual representative clash played at North Sydney Oval on Sunday 15 May.
With only 10 minutes of the match remaining City, who had dominated for most of the game, held a 22-6 lead and even when Country front rower Mitch Jackson barged over for a try with 6 minutes left on the clock, still looked destined to take the shield for the first time since 2014. However, Chokr’s late tries and Country’s John Norford’s conversion of the last try right on full time brought the scores level and meant, as last year’s winners, the Country team retain the shield for 2106.
Country were first to score when centre Shane Rowe crossed after only 8 minutes but the city boys gradually gained the upper hand. At the 30th minute City centre Dwayne Peters scored wide out and 4 minutes before the break front rower Chris Ve’e crashed over to give them a 10-6 lead at half time.
City took complete charge for the first 30 minutes of the second stanza and tries to their hooker Jake Vrahnos and full back Luke Johnston, both converted by Ruan De’Preez gave them what looked like that unbeatable 22-6 lead, before Country’s late surge.
Chokr’s two try effort earned him his team mates’ vote as Country’s Players Player, whilst Chris Ve’e was City’s selection.
Luke Johnston was the recipient of the Man of the Match award.
Country 22 (Moe Chokr 2, Shane Rowe, Mitch Jackson tries, John Norford 3 goals) drew City 22 (Dwayne Peters, Chris Ve’e, Jake Vrahnos, Luke Johnston tries, Ruan De’Preez 3 goals)
