Camden Rams come from behind to win thriller

Moss Vale and Narellan recorded their first wins of the season in round three of the 2019 premiership.

The Dragons were far too strong for Oakdale, winning 58-10, while the Jets accounted for the Magpies, winning 32-26 at Victoria Park, Picton.

Mittagong claimed the Corkery-Andrews Cup after a 40-10 win over Campbelltown City Kangaroos, who are still without a win.

Escape artists: Camden Rams go on the attack against the Tigers.

And then there was the thriller at Harvey Shephard Field, reports MIKE SHEAN, where in front of a bumper crowd the Camden Rams escaped with a come from behind 24-22 win over The Oaks Tigers.

Tigers’ captain coach Mitchell Brasington was among the best for the visitors, as he scored two first half tries to help set up a 12-point halftime lead.

It appeared Brasington was leading his side to a comfortable win over the home side, but when Joel Horne scored a try it meant the Rams could go to the break 18-6 behind and confident they were still in the game.

Chris Browne opened the scoring shortly after play resumed, reducing the deficit to 18-12.

Zac Byles, the Tigers’ winger who has been impressive this season, scored a try to extend the visitors’ lead to 22-12 lead.

However, the Rams had other plans, with Ben Powers, the Rams’ lock, scoring minutes later, reducing the deficit to just 4 points, with 20 minutes remaining.

Will Kerr, the young five eighth for the home side, stepped up with 9 minutes remaining with a brilliant solo effort.

Kerr stepped through the defensive line, before kicking ahead, managing to kick the ball into the goal padding, regathering amongst a group of players, and forcing the ball to score a try and level the scores at 22-22.

Chris Browne, who steered the team around well from fullback, kicked his fourth conversion of the day, giving the Rams a 24-22 lead.

Kerr and halfback Andrew McGuiggan stood out for the Rams, while the forwards, led by Ben Weir, laid a solid platform for the halves.

Mitchell Brasington was among the best for the Tigers, while Josh Van Der Meulen worked hard in the backrow.
