Coach Mark Skuse kicked three goals for the Panthers, with the vastly-experienced Alastair Richardson and the great James Webster adding two majors each.

In the absence of twin brother Jeremy, Ben Eddy kicked five goals in an excellent performance up forward for the Marlins. Billy Barton and Elliott Davey Medallist Jayden Rymer chipped in with two goals apiece for Nelson Bay as the Marlins kicked nine goals to five after half-time.

Small forward Harley Bernleitner showed his class with four goals.

The Bombers, in the absence of Scott Reed and Ryan Barrett, were best served by Max Mumford, Tim Oosterhoff, Liam Hassall, Kyall Walford and Bernleitner.

In the Black Diamond Plate, Wyong Lakes secured the Minor Premiership with a strong 37-point win Newcastle City at No.1 Sportsground, Singleton just edged out Gosford by three points at Adcock Park in West Gosford and Terrigal Avoca finished their season with a 68-point win over near neighbours The Entrance Bateau Bay;

In the GE Women’s Semi Finals, Gosford and Maitland have progressed through to next weeks premliminary final with hard fought wins over Killarney Vale and Wyong Lakes respectively.
