GREAT BRITAIN'S Under-19 Academy side lost again on its Australia tour, beaten 27-10 by the Central Coast at Gosford. The tourists will now go into next Wednesday's first Test at Parramatta with four defeats in four matches. They will be without their first-choice scrum-half, Ryan Sheridan, of Sheffield Eagles, who is being flown home with a recurrence of injuries to his toe and shoulder.
