Dominant display form the Melbourne team at Leichhardt Oval

The visitors left only 5 minutes of glory to the hosts in the whole game. Despite the addition of Super Rugby champion and Wallaby Will Skelton the Stars only scored two tries midway in the first half to briefly tie the game before the Rising ran over them with four unanswered tries.

Again the Rising impressed with composure and organisation at the set pieces: "I'm pleased with some aspects (of the game)" told Rising head coach Sean Hedger to the media at the end of the game. "obviously there is still a few things to work on". "The scrum was again a weapon for us, towards the end of the game was very dominant for us, it is nice to have that really stable scrum platform to work from".
The visitors started strong with scrum half and captain Nic Stirzaker first over the whitewash, and then crossed again with experienced centre Mitch Inman, before conceding two tries in rapid succession to exciting wing James Dargaville and centre Jim Stewart. But the Stars rally was short lived and the visitors scored before half time again with Veainu.
In the second half ex Sydney Uni player Sam Jeffries scored before local Victorian talents Sefa Naivalu and Joe Kamana closed off the game and ensured the bonus point.

Sydney 13 (13):
Tries: Dargaville 26', Stewart 29'
Conv: Dunbar 1/2
Melbourne 45 (21):
Tries: Stirzaker 11', Inman 20', Veainu 39', Jeffries 46', Naivalu 54', Kamana 74'
