Marschke was promoted through the ranks in the space of four games
The Hills Bulls Ron Massey side have started the season off undefeated, winning their first four competition games. The Hills side have edged out two teams, and piled points on two others, on their way to an undefeated start to the season.
Their Round one clash saw them pile 62 points on Windsor Wolves. In their second round, they were able to just overcome the strong Mounties side 24-20. The teams scored four tries a piece, but Josh Bergamin’s kicking allowed the Hills side to come away with the points in Round 3.
Benjamin Marschke played his one and only game for the Bulls in Round One and has since been promoted to NSW Cup with North Sydney Bears and then playing his NRL Debut against the New Zealand Warriors
From fullback, Dominic Reardon crossed for a hattrick, scoring the last try after the teams scored a try a piece until the 58th minute.
In Round four Hills again had an incredibly tight clash, beating Drummoyne Dirty Reds 26-24. Drummoyne scored a try to go four points ahead of Hills in the 77th minute and the Reds would have been confident that would secure the win against the Hills Team. The Bulls had other plans, scoring in the 78th minute to level the score, and Tom Carr kicking a conversion to secure the victory in the 79th minute.
In Round five, the Bulls made light work of the Ryde-Eastwood Hawks, beating them 44-8. Josh Bergamin scored a try and kicked six conversions on his way to 16 points. The game was clearly a game of two halves, as the Bulls scored 38 of their points in the first 40 minutes, with only six points of the total 52 being scored in the 2nd half.
Round six saw the Bulls come up against Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles, putting them away in a comfortable 28-16 win. Josh Lewis had a game to remember, kicking two field goals, a penalty goal and two conversions, in an unusual stat-line.
The Bulls are sharing the top spot with St Mary’s Saints, with both sides undefeated after five games. The Bulls have a lower points difference, having scored 100 points more than conceding. St Mary’s have a points difference of 184, scoring a whopping 240 points in five games.
The two in-form sides of the competition take each other on in Round 8 on Sunday afternoon at St Mary’s Leagues Stadium in a clash which will see who the competition favourite is.
