CENTRAL COAST COMPETE AT THE NSW COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS IN TAMWORTH
8th/9th JUNE, 2019

Central Coast had a most successful weekend in Tamworth at the NSW Country Championships. The Senior XV, Colts and Women’s XV teams all put in good performances over the two days of the Championships.

The 1st XV had a win and a loss to stay in the Caldwell Cup competition. The Colts team reached the Final after three great victories on Day 1, while the women won their 2 matches to also reach their respective Final.

SENIORS ….. CALDWELL CUP
Game 1 CENTRAL COAST v. ILLAWARRA
Saturday, 8th June, 2019 3.50 pm

Central Coast started this match very well. The team had crossed for a try within the first 5 minutes to take the lead by 7 points to nil. The whole forward pack were playing well and this try was great reward. Illawarra did respond with a penalty goal late in the first half for Central Coast to go to the halftime break leading by 7 points to 3. The second half was a real arm wrestle with neither team giving an inch. Illawarra took the lead early in the half to lead by 15 points to 7. However Central Coast was not to be denied and they responded with a great try to halfback Matt King. With the Coast leading by 17 to15 it was anybody’s match. However Illawarra were able to kick two late penalty goals, while Central Coast missed theirs. It was a great performance by the Central Coast but at the same time a very disappointing result.

Game 2 CALDWELL CUP PLAYOFF
CENTRAL COAST v. MID NORTH COAST
Sunday, 9th June, 2018 11.40 am

This was a typical top tier playoff with both sides prepared to throw around. Both sides had lost the previous day so had to lift themselves for this clash. It was a wonderful win by the Central Coast team, and the team now remains in the top tier and will compete for the Caldwell Cup again next year.

Game 3 CENTRAL COAST v. CENTRAL WEST
Saturday, 8th June, 2019 1.10 pm

Central Coast went into this match with full confidence. In what was basically a semi-final, the team knew that a victory in this match would see them through to the Final the following day. So it was to be. The team played extremely well and completely shut out the quite experienced opposition.

Game 4 COLTS CUP FINAL
CENTRAL COAST v. NEWCASTLE HUNTER
Sunday, 29th April, 2018 9.20 am

The Central Coast team played good rugby in the opening stages of the match. In fact, if anything, they had the better of the start of the match. They were fired up and were playing some good rugby. The feature of the match was the strong defence from both teams. Central Coast opened the scoring in the 12th minute when they kicked a penalty goal through Nick Armstrong. However later in the half the Newcastle team were able to respond with their own 2 penalty goals which enabled them to go to the halftime break leading by 6 points to 3. The second half continued in much the same vein. It was intense, hard fought rugby. The only points scored in the second half was a third penalty goal to Newcastle. No tries were scored in the game which demonstrates the strong defence displayed by both teams. Newcastle was able to hang on for the 9-3 victory. It was a great effort from the Central Coast team. It was a tough weekend where 4 hard fought matches were played.

WOMEN
Game 1 CENTRAL COAST v. MID NORTH COAST
Saturday, 8th June, 2019 8.50 am

Central Coast defended so well in the first half and this laid the foundation for their win. Most of the players in the Central Coast team had never played 15-a-side rugby before but they were able to put on a wonderful performance. To come away with a win was a huge confidence builder for the later matches.

Game 2 CENTRAL COAST v. HUNTER
Saturday, 8th June, 2019 10.30 am

Central Coast was able to cross for two tries in the first half, with one right on halftime. This 10 nil lead was a real bonus against a well credentialed team. The second half saw Central Coast simply defend. They were very rarely able to get out of their own quarter of the field. Newcastle errors did help but the wonderful defence by the Central Coast team was inspirational. They were able to hang on for the victory and as a result they had secured themselves a spot in the Final the following day.

Game 3 WOMEN’S FINAL :
CENTRAL COAST v. CENTRAL WEST
Saturday, 8th June, 2019 10.50 am

The Central Coast team played well in the Final but were defeated by an experienced 15-a-side team from Central West. Central Coast had their chances in the first half but it was not to be. Central West led by 17 points to nil at halftime and were able to continue on to score a further 2 tries in the second stanza. The Central Coast team never stopped trying for the full 80 minutes. Having only played 7’s rugby this season, to play a full 80 minutes at such a high standard was a tremendous effort. It was a great performance despite the loss.

CONCLUSION :
It was a pleasing weekend for Central Coast Rugby Union results wise. The Seniors remain in the Caldwell Cup competition after putting on two very good displays of rugby. The Colts went so close to a Championship. They won 3 of their 4 matches and almost won them all. The Women’s team competed extremely well, and they reached the Final. For a group of players who have only played 7-a-side rugby this season, to reach the Final was a wonderful effort to say the very least. All three teams were a credit to Central Coast Rugby, and the coaching staff of both teams did an excellent job. The success of the 3 teams could be seen in the record number of players selected in the NSW Country Teams – 9 in the Cockatoos, 8 in the Cockatoo Colts, and 5 in the Corellas. Many thanks to Stew, Nick and Michael, and their respective coaching staff, on completing such a great job.
