Early exit for Northern United

NORTHERN United’s Aboriginal rugby league knockout carnival ended abruptly when defeated in their first-round match at Woy Woy on the Central Coast on Saturday.

The Dirawongs were drawn to play Yarnteen Yowies, led by Parramatta Eels centre Timana Tahu, in their first match at the annual carnival, which draws teams from throughout New South Wales.

And it got pretty messy for the Northern Rivers lads.

Yowies led 10-0 at half-time before running out winners 26-10.

Many teams at the carnival have a host of present and former Indigenous NRL players, with Northern United fielding former South Sydney Rabbitoh Roy Bell.

Others included George Rose (Manly), who ran out for defending champions BAC Walgett, Daine Laurie (Penrith), Tyrone Roberts (Newcastle) and Birrigan Young (Manly).
