The second half was very topsy turvy on the scoreboard with the lead alternatingregularly. Central Coast took the lead early in the second half when Adam Danckert took an intercept for Central Coast to lead 14-12. It was anybody’s match. FNC were then awarded a controversialpenalty try which swung the match in their favour. Central Coast did regain the lead 20-19 with two successful penaltygoals. However, FNC scored a converted try close to fulltime to secure the victoryIt was a great performance by the Central Coast but at the same time a very disappointing result.It was so closeyet so far.

Game 2  CALDWELL CUP SEMIFINAL

CENTRAL COAST  v. CENTRAL WEST

Saturday, 12th June, 202112.4pm

This was atypical top tier playoff with both sides prepared to throw around. It was a very even start but it was Central West who took the early lead. They scored a converted try early on to lead 7 nil and that remained the score until halftime. Central Coast had a disallowed try, and went close to scoring on several occasions but with no resulting effect.The Central Coastattack was good but no points resulted. Central West slowly took control on the scoreboard in the second half with a further two converted tries. Central Coast were rewardedwith a converted try late in the matchbut it was all too late. It had proved a tough day at the office for the Senior 1stXV. Things just did not go their way despite playing very well.

Game 3  CALDWELL CUP PLAYOFF

CENTRAL COAST  v. NEWCASTLE HUNTER

Sunday, 13th June, 202111.5am

This match was a clash between two neighbouring rivals and both were keen to defeatthe other. It started off quite evenlywithcontact very physical at thebreakdown. However, it was the Central Coast who were playing the more effective rugby and they gradually took control in the match. It wasgreateffort by the Central Coastteam, and a great victory over their arch rivals. The 4 tries to 2victory was a good indicator of the flow of the match and it was a great way to conclude the Championshipsafter what had proved a frustratingday the day before

Central Coast took control and were rewarded with two great team tries. Central Coast had taken victory through some excellent play in the second half.

The feature of the match was the strong defence from both teams. It was Hunter who scored first however, when they crossedfor a converted try to lead 7 points to nil. A great try on halftime to CentralCoast saw the scores levelled. The team scored a 9metre try whenflyhalf Braedyn Hutchinson-Walters made an initial break, before passing to fullbackKurt Ferrariwho raced the remining 7metres to score under the posts. This converted try made the halftime score 7 points apiece.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 convertedtry to Newcastleafter the fulltime whistle. It was such a great effort by Central Coastand one where the team went so close to taking the honoursIt was a tough weekend where 5 hard fought matches were played.

Saturday, 12th June, 2021    10.20 am

Central Coast defended so well in the first half but despite this it was MNC who took the early lead by 10mpoints to nil. ThCentral Coast did score before halftime to make the halftime score 10-5 in favour of MNC.Many 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. The second ahlf was almost a repeat of the first half, in that MNC scored a further two tries to that of one try scored by the Coast. It was a pleasing hit out for the Central Coast team although the loss was disappointing.

CONCLUSION :

It was a pleasing weekend for Central Coast Rugby UnionoverallMany thanks to Craig, Nick and Michael, and their respective coaching staff, on completing such a great job. It was a tough weekend of rugby for all 3 teams, and in fact many would say that had to play too much rugby. The 3 teamswere involved in 12 matchesof rugby over the 2 days, and in what was Championshipstandard rugby. The final situation sees the 1st XV finish 4th, the Colts 2nd, and the Women 4th.
