“Then I grabbed her – she was behind me – and I was using the stick at the same time.”

Mr Maramota managed to ward off the attacker by pushing him in the chest with the stick and help the womanto safety inside his home.

He and his family, and the injured woman, barricaded themselves inside, while the attacker demanded to be let in.

The family was huddled inside when they reportedly heard rocks being thrown against the back window.

Channel 7 has reported the rocks were thrown by police, who got the family’s attention, before helping them slip out the back door and climb over the fence to safety.

The Saints trailed by a goal at three-quarter time but exploded in the final term, booting six goals to one.

Jack Steven (29 disposals, two goals) was dominant in the midfield, half-back Dylan Roberton continued his stellar season and young forward Blake Acres sparked the Saints’ fourth-quarter run with consecutive goals.

With a crowd of 21,160 in attendance, it was the Saints’ best win for the year, and one that showed they belonged on the Friday night stage after a year-long absence.

There was little separating the two sides during a fast-paced start but problems soon emerged for the Giants, with defender Adam Kennedy suffering a game-ending knee injury midway through the first quarter.

The 24-year-old appeared to be in immense discomfort after landing awkwardly during a marking contest and was on crutches in the rooms.

The Giants were soon reduced to two players on the interchange bench when Nathan Wilson’s head was slammed into the turf in an aggressive Koby Stevens tackle.

The tackle was deemed fair at the time – Stevens won a holding-the-ball free kick as a result of it – but the incident is bound to be scrutinised by the match review panel.

Wilson went to the rooms for concussion tests but returned after halftime and was immediately in the thick of the action, setting up a Rory Lobb goal to extend the Giants’ narrow lead.

The plucky Saints refused to go away but struggled to convert their chances, with back-to-back turnovers from Giants veteran Heath Shaw going unpunished.

St Kilda levelled the scores late in the third term before Devon Smith’s 60m bomb kept the Giants ahead at the final break.

But the final term belonged to St Kilda, with Acres booting two majors in as many minutes on the back of Steven’s outstanding midfield work.

Steven capped off a best-on-ground performance with his second goal to put the icing on the cake as the Saints moved in to the top eight.

It was a rough comedown for GWS after their thrilling Friday night victory over the Western Bulldogs last week.

Stephen Coniglio, Tom Scully and Callan Ward were all impressive but the Giants couldn’t overcome the Saints’ fanatical pressure.

Newcastle Rugby League: Central overcome dogged Maitland to help repay club’s investment

BIG BLOW: Steve Gordon playing for Western Suburbs. Now at Central Newcastle, Gordon injured his shoulder in a 28-22 win over Maitland on Saturday. Picture: Max Mason-Hubers CENTRAL Charlestown coach Craig Miller wanted a good start to the Newcastle Rugby League season to repay the faith the club had shown in the off-season.

OnSaturday, the Butcher Boys held out a fast-finishing Maitland 28-22 at Coronation Oval to make it three-straight wins to sit top of the table.

“The club is going great and I couldn’t be prouder today,” said Miller who took over the reins this season. “We spoke about the importance of getting some credibility at the start of the season. The club put its neck out a little bit and recruited well. It was important that we paid the club back and for the playing group to get some confidence. We have a pretty good squad and are entitled to set some lofty goals.”

Central set up the win in the first half, leading 24-10 at the break.

“Coronation Oval is as hard as a rock and down hill,” Miller said. “We ran down hill in the first half and had the wind behind us which was a pretty big advantage. We knew Maitland would come back. Maitland never stopped coming at us. We hung in there and probably did the little things a bit better than they did and our kicking game was strong. I know Maitland are one (win) and three (losses) but the way Tilse and Dorn are playing, they will win their fair share.”

Teenage fullback Jake Maizen was the hero for the visitors with a hat-trick.

“He ran 50 or 60 metres for a couple of them,” Miller said. “He has scored five or six tries in the first three rounds and for a kid in his first year of first grade, I think he has something a little special. He has real speed and is very much out of the James Tedesco mould the way he plays.”

The only down side for Central was a shoulder injury to Steve Gordon.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Cessnock broke their duck with a hard-fought 24-16 win over Kurri Kurri in coalfields derby at Cessnock Sportsground.

The Goannas led 14-0 at half-time.

In Sunday’s game Western Suburbs are at home to Lakes United.

Rugby League: Newcastle Knights score in extra-time to snatch thrilling comeback win over Manly Sea Eagles in Harold Matthews Cup final

CHAMPIONS: Knights under-16s players and coaching staff celebrate after beating Manly to win the Harold Matthews Cup final at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday. Picture: Newcastle Knights COACH MarkMorrissey is confident the Knights have the core of a future NRL team if they can keep the triumphant Harold Matthews side together.
南京夜网

The Knights produced a stunning comeback to beat Manly 26-20 in extra time in the final of the under-16s competition at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.

“They are a great bunch of kids with a great work ethic,” Morrissey said. “Hopefully we can shore them up and keep them at the club. There is certainly some future first graders among them.”

In scenes reminiscent of the Knights’ famous win over Manly in the 1997 NRL grand final, Newcastle came back from the dead to win an incredible finale.

They trailed 20-16 with seconds remaining when winger Patrick Achurch dived over in the left corner to send the game into extra time.

Captain and lock Jaron Purcell did the rest, crashing over from close range in the dying moments in the first period of extra time. From there they hung on.

“With 10 seconds to go I thought the match was gone,” Morrissey said.“Then we scored in the corner to tie it up. Talk about riding your emotions. Wejust didn’t give up. We had a sign on the wall in the dressing sheds which read“nevergive up” and we fought right to the end.”

The win secured the Knights the minor-major premiership double.It is the fourth time the club haswon the under-16s competition. They were beaten in the grand final last season.

Purcell, five-eighth Max Buderus, hooker Mitchell Black, second-rower Riley Meyn and prop Tian Ma’anaima were outstanding for the Knights who completed the season undefeated.

“To be undefeated premiers in 2017 is an amazing feeling,” Purcell said.”We have players from Newcastle, Maitland, the Hunter Valley and the Central Coast …to pull a team of 16-year-old boys from country areas to win a NSW State competition is amazing.A special thank you to our parents and staff for the time, effort and support they put in to help us achieve our goals this season.”

Buderus set up the Knights’ first try just before half-time,jabbing through a grubber for Meyn.

Until that point the Knights had been out-played by animpressive Manly outfit who led 10-0 early.

Although the Sea Eagles scored again early in the second half, the Red and Blues started to find their groove.

Imposing prop Christian Ma’anaima charged overin the 36th minute.Buderus converted to cut the margin to 14-10.

Soon after Meyn got his second try following an excellent run to put the Knights in front.

But Albert Hopoate scored for Manly against the run of play with just nine minutes left on the clock.

The Knights needed a hero andAchurch delivered in the final seconds.

Surfer rescued after 32 hours at sea had prepared himself to die

Matthew Bryce was found clinging to his board after being swept 26 kilometres from Scotland into the Irish SeaA surfer who was rescued after 32 hours adrift at sea said he had prepared himself to die.
南京夜网

Matthew Bryce was found clinging to his board after being swept 26 kilometres from Scotland into the Irish Sea near the Northern Island border.

He described the moment he was spotted by a helicopter as “the most beautiful sight I had ever seen.”

“The wind and water was just relentless,” he told the BBC from his hospital bed.

“It got to the point where my paddling was ineffective, but I was doing it to keep myself warm.”

A highly emotional Bryce who is being treated for hypothermia said: “I knew I had maybe three hours and I was pretty certain that I was going to die with that sunset.

“So I was watching the sunset and I’d pretty much made peace with it all and then a helicopter flew right over.”

Bryce jumped off his surfboard and lifted the board up.

“I started waving the board in the water and they flew right over, I thought they’d missed me.”

“But then they turned round and when I saw them turn it was indescribable. I can’t describe it at all,” he said tearfully.

“These guys were the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. I owe them my life.”

Bryce told BBC how a morning surf last Sunday turned into a hellish 23 hours.

He said he had driven to Westport car park in the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland on Sunday morning. He waxed his surfboard and then headed out about 11am to “catch some waves”.

But he began to panic as tides and winds carried him out to sea.

“It got to the point where my paddling was ineffective, but I was doing it to keep myself warm.

“It was incredibly lonely and quiet because there was just nothing, just waves. I hadn’t seen any helicopters.

“I was thinking I was going to die, I was almost convinced. I didn’t think I would see sunrise.”

Rescuers have since recovered his surfboard but he said he was not planning to use it again.

“I think we’ll find a good use for it, maybe as starter fuel,” he said.

Asked if he was finished with surfing, he added: “I think so, I couldn’t do that again.”
