REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with some excellent games of rugby played across the coast yesterday. With several games played at different venues because of the rain on Friday, and some in quite damp conditions, the local rugby season certainly became very interesting.
The Match of the Day saw a dour struggle at Ourimbah Rugby Park where the home side Ourimbah got home over visitors Avoca Beach in a close one by 11 points to 5. There was nothing in this match throughout. With the ground conditions not lending itself to open rugby, the struggle became a real arm wrestle. Ourimbah took the lead in this match with a try to No.8 Rob Peden and this score line of 5 points to nil remained the score until almost half time. Ourimbah jumped further ahead right on the break when they kicked a penalty goal to go to the halftime break with the score at Ourimbah 8 Avoca Beach 0. Even though Ourimbah was ahead on the scoreboard there was nothing in this match. Both teams were playing well in the conditions and both were certainly putting pressure on the opposition. Ourimbah were seeing some very good performers on the day. None were better than their lock Josefa Biu, and he was supported by five-eight Daniel Jones. The best players for Avoca Beach were inside centre Mitchell Jacob, winger Toby Marks, who crossed for their try, lock Aiden King and hooker Fionn Henderson-Foley. Avoca Beach actually scored the only try in the second stanza. Avoca Beach crossed for this try while the home side were only able to respond with a penalty goal. However this penalty goal was enough to see them home for victory. Both teams proved they will be around at the end of the year but it was a vital win for Ourimbah while Avoca Beach will be keen to get on the winner’s dais quickly in the next few weeks.

The Lakes hit back after last week’s loss when they easily accounted for Woy Woy by 48 points to 13 at Woongarrah Oval No.1. This match was transferred to Woongarrah and The Lakes were able to get their backline into action on an excellent rugby pitch. The Lakes started strongly right from the kickoff. They had posted two tries very quickly and with an early lead of 10 points to nil, they already seemed to be doing things easy. The Lakes went to the halftime break leading by 20 points to 6 and they seemed to have the match in control even at that stage. However Woy Woy was not taking a backward step. They continued to fight back and got close to scoring on several occasions but were unable to break through The Lakes defence. The second half continued in much the same vein. The Lakes continued to cross for regular five pointers and had jumped to a 34 points to 6 lead at the midway point of the second stanza. The Lakes had several good players but none were better than flanker Noah Haliapiapi, hooker Royce Smith, fullback Macui Rauluni, and No.8 Ishaq Kali Meehan. Woy Woy were best served by centres Junior Stowers and Wade Hannell, and loose forwards Corey Fleming and Lapana Vitale. Woy Woy were rewarded with a try late in the game to centre Wade Hannell, but it was The Lakes who finished the stronger by posting a further two tries in final minutes to make the final score 48-13.

In another match that was transferred, Hornsby defeated Gosford by 27 points to 15. This match was transferred from Mark Taylor Oval to Woongarrah Oval No.2 due to the rain and this was an exciting match from start to finish. There was never too much in this encounter for the entire 80 minutes. Gosford took the early lead with a penalty goal to halfback Ben Shelley, and it took quite awhile before Hornsby responded with their first try. With that try Hornsby took the lead by 7 points to 3, but that was followed with an excellent try to Gosford after some good lead up play by centre Josh McGlynn. With this try to winger to William Sharp, Gosford had taken the lead by 8 points to 7. It was definitely proving a see-sawing clash. It was then Hornsby’s turn to take the lead and with their second try just before halftime, Hornsby went to the halftime break leading by 14 points to 8. It was proving a high standard match and both teams were giving their all. Hornsby had several standout players. However none were better than flanker Tevita Puikala, hooker Hosea Fotukava, who crossed for 2 tries, and five-eight Sione Ala. Gosford had several good players including centre Josh McGlynn, halfback Ben Shelley and lock Chad Sneyd. The second half was a real battle. Hornsby increased their lead to 19 points to 8 but Gosford were not to be outdone. They responded with their own try and with scores at 19-15 the match was still very much up for grabs. The final 15 minutes proved very tense. However a late penalty goal and late try saw Hornsby home in what was a most entertaining match. Hornsby showed in this clash that they will be in action at the end of the season while Gosford put in another great performance but without getting the desired result.

Warnervale defeated Kariong by 26 points to 8 at Kariong Oval. In a match severely interrupted with a serious injury, it was the Warnervale team that proved the strongest on the day. Warnervale led in this match from start to finish. Warnervale led by 12 points to 3 at halftime and then continued on to record a quite comfortable victory. Best for Warnervale on the day were No.8 Jacob Griffin, and backs Jack Hogan, Mitch Riley and Brennan Jaymz. Kariong were best served by No.8 Josh Bottero, and centres Alex Rozario and Elliot Rozario.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with two excellent matches. Warnervale secured a pleasing victory over Kariong, while Avoca Beach recorded a win in their first competition hit out of the season.

REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with some excellent games of rugby played across the coast yesterday. All matches were very close at halftime, and even though some teams got away on the scoreboard in the second half, all games were not decided until that vital final quarter of the match.
In the Match of the Day, Terrigal finished too strong to defeat The Lakes by 36 points to 24 at The Haven Oval. It was a tense match throughout with both teams played some enthralling rugby. Terrigal took the early lead in the match with a converted try and were never headed on the scoreboard. But there was never too much in it in the first 40 minutes. In fact the two teams were locked at 14 points apiece at the halftime break. It was 14-8 to Terrigal midway through the first half, and then 14-11 before The Lakes kicked a further penalty goal on halftime time to level the scores at the break. The match was certainly up for grabs at that stage. Terrigal were able to take a certain amount of control early in the second half when they were able to cross for two relatively quick tries. This jumped Terrigal to a significant 26 points to 14 lead which The Lakes were not able to overcome. Terrigal had several good players, but none were better than hooker Ethan McInnes, who crossed for 3 individual tries, lock Joe Taylor, and five-eight Jye Cornish. The Lakes were best served by fullback Macui Rauluni, prop Tim Poese and hooker Zac McGuiness. The match certainly showed why Terrigal are the early Premiership favourites but also showed that The Lakes will be close to the action on the final day of the competition this year.

Hornsby also demonstrated they are in for a successful season when they accounted for Warnervale by 19 points to 5 at Woongarrah Oval. The first 40 minutes was evens stevens. There was only the one converted try to Hornsby in that period and the visitors went to the halftime break leading by the slender margin of 7 points to nil. Both teams threw everything at each other in the second half and both had chances to post points. However it was Hornsby who gradually crept further ahead on the scoreboard. They were able to cross for a further two tries and well into the half were able to secure a winning lead of 19 points to nil lead. Warnervale scored late in the half to post their first points but it was all too late. This was a tough match with very little between the two teams. Best for Hornsby were No.8 James McCarthy, who continued his great form, five-eight Sione Ala and hooker Hosea Fotukava. The home side were best served by hooker Kye Haslem, fullback Mitch Riley and flanker Harry Sexton.

Ourimbah proved too strong for Gosford at Gosford Showground, running out winners by 40 points to 14. The end result was a comfortable victory for the Ourimbah team but they certainly did not have it all their own way. Gosford got away to a great start with an early converted try in the first few minutes of the match. But it was not long before Ourimbah squared it all up with their own converted try. Gosford may have had the better of the territory in the first 40 minutes but were unable to break through the strong Ourimbah defence. In fact the visitors took the lead to halftime when they crossed for their second converted try and led by 14 points to 7 at the halftime break. It was proving a quite exciting game of rugby with plenty of action from one end of the field to the other. Midway through the second half, with both teams having posted a further converted try each, Ourimbah led by only 21 points to 14. But it was the final quarter of the match that proved the difference in the two teams. Ourimbah was able to cross for three late tries to seal a very meritorious win. Gosford were in this match for 60 minutes but could not handle the Ourimbah onslaught in the final 20 minutes. Ourimbah had retained the Thomson-Brown trophy for another year. Best for Ourimbah were No.8 Rob Peden, who crossed for two tries, five-eight Daniel Jones, who directed play so efficiently all game, and inside centre Kaituu Kaufana. Best for Gosford were No.8 Sean Anzelark and halfback Ben Shelley. Ourimbah proved they are in for a good season while Gosford will definitely trouble all teams in the remaining six rounds.

Woy Woy came from behind to defeat Kariong at Woy Woy Oval by 20 points to 15. There was nothing in this clash throughout, both on the paddock and on the scoreboard. Woy Woy opened the scoring with an early penalty goal before Kariong took the lead with a try. The first half was an intense affair with neither team giving an inch. Kariong went to the halftime break by the narrow lead of 12 points to 10. There was absolutely nothing in the match at that stage. There was a long injury break in the second half but with play continuing, the same intensity continued. The lead continued to change regularly in the final 20 minutes. Woy Woy took the lead 13-12, then Kariong 15-13, before Woy Woy scored a try near fulltime to secure the victory. Best players for Woy Woy were No.8 Lapana Vitale, flanker Joel Frazer and centre Junior Stowers, while for Kariong flanker Mitchell Parker, in his initial top grade match, lock Nic Outram and five-eight Mitch Clay gave it their all for the entire 80 minutes.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with two excellent matches. Hornsby accounted for Warnervale, while Woy Woy had a big win over Kariong.

REPORT :
Round 2 saw some very exciting games of rugby played right across the Central Coast. The Match of the Day at Slade Park saw The Lakes sneak home in an extremely tight match over Avoca Beach by the narrowest of margins, by 15 points to 14. It was close throughout. The Lakes got away to the better start, kicking an early penalty goal and then following this up with a converted try take a lead of 10 points to nil lead at the midway point of the first half. The match was played in wet conditions but this did not dampen the enthusiasm of the players but did lead to quite a lot of dropped ball. Avoca Beach fought back late in the first half with two penalty goals to their fullback Shaun Townsend and at the half time break The Lakes only led by 10 points to 6. This score line was made even further tighter when Avoca Beach kicked their third penalty goal to make the score 10-9. The match was up for grabs at that stage. The final stages were evenly fought. Both teams crossed for a single try apiece to make the final score 15-14. Best players for The Lakes were Tomi Kaati, Zac McGuiness and Nick Valentine. Avoca Beach were best served by hooker Fionn Henderson-Foley and fullback Shawn Townsend. Both teams will take a lot from the clash and the result proves that these two teams will be in the reckoning at the end of the year.

Hornsby opened up their season with a convincing win over Kariong at Mark Taylor Oval, running out victors by 41 points to 10. Hornsby were in control almost from the opening whistle. They led early and then went to the halftime break with a handy 17 points to 3 lead. They were playing some very constructive rugby and were always dangerous with the ball in hand. However it was in the second half that Hornsby really asserted its dominance. They posted a further 24 points to secure the win. The 7 tries to one score line does indicate the difference in the two teams on the day. Best for Hornsby were lock Wes Faupula, while Tuihakavalu Ika, No.8 James McCarthy and fullback Leone Naisorotab all scored 2 tries apiece for the home side. Kariong never stopped trying but it was just not going to be their day. Best for Kariong were flankers Josh Bottero and Christian Whitfield as well as Lachlan Peruch. Hornsby showed they will be a threat for all teams this year.

Terrigal continued on their winning way with a 31 points 13 win over Gosford at The Haven Oval. It was great to see Gosford back in Premier1 and they certainly made their impact in this match. They put in a real full hearted performance and worried the Terrigal outfit for most of the match. Gosford got away to a great start and had posted two tries early in the match to take a 10 points to nil lead. Terrigal did score a converted try close to halftime, with Gosford going to the halftime beak leading by 10 points to 7. Gosford still led by 13 points to 12 well into the second half. Gosford were playing some pleasing rugby and certainly showed they will trouble teams for the remainder of the year. Terrigal gradually wore down Gosford and were able to cross for several late tries to eventually post a quite comfortable victory. Best for Terrigal were lock Josh Vainikolo and flanker Sam Kenny while for Gosford veteran Adam Carlisle made his mark at five-eight as did Ben Shelley at halfback. Terrigal showed why they are Premiership favourites with their 80 minute effort but Gosford also showed they do belong in Premier 1.

Warnervale scored their first win of the season when they accounted for Woy Woy at Woongarrah Oval by 18 points to 10. Warnervale only led by 7 points to 3 at the halftime break and so at that stage it was anybody’s match. The home side did increase this lead early in the second stanza and led by 15 points to 3 at the 60 minute mark of the match. Woy Woy never stopped trying however. They fought back to get the score to 15 -10 but a late penalty goal to Warnervale secured them the win. There was not too much between these two teams for the entire 80 minutes. Best for Warnervale were No.8 Cameron McNamara, Kye Haslem and Sione Branxton. Woy Woy were best served by backs Wade Hannell and Junior Stowers.

Women’s 10’s rugby saw some exciting clashes over the weekend. Although only 4 teams were in action, there was plenty of action on the paddock. Hornsby easily accounted for Kariong, while Woy Woy had a close win over Warnervale.

REPORT :
After a long wait, the Central Coast Rugby Union season finally kicked off. The first round saw one close battle while the other two matches saw quite convincing wins to the away team.
The Match of the Day between Warnervale and Ourimbah was a close one throughout. Ourimbah held on to win by 29 points to 19 at Woongarah Oval after the home side seriously gave the visitors a scare during the final quarter of the match. The first half was a quite even affair but it was Ourimbah who went to the halftime break leading by 15 points to 5. With the limited preparation that all teams had this year, both teams did put on a good display of rugby. However it was always Ourimbah that keep in front on the scoreboard. Both teams had some good players in this first 40 minutes. Best for Ourimbah were No.8 Rob Peden, who crossed for a try in the match, lock Josefa Biu, who played his usual strong game, and five-eight Dan Jones. Best for Warnervale were prop Lachlan Natapu, flanker Kye Haslem and No.8 Cameron McNamara. The second half continued in much the same vein as the first. In fact both teams were able to post 14 points each to their score in the second stanza. Warnervale got very close on the scoreboard late in the second half but it was the visitors who were able to post some vital late points to secure the win. Both teams will take a lot from this clash and things do look good for both teams this year.

The Lakes showed great form when they defeated Kariong by 62 points to 24 at Kariong Oval. This was a very free flowing match with the attack from both teams the main feature. The Lakes basically won this match in the first half when they went to the halftime break leading by a massive 41 points to nil. It was 40 minutes of rugby where The Lakes forward pack was strong and their backline extremely dangerous. The Lakes always looked dangerous with the ball in hand and were able to cross for continual tries in the first 40 minutes. The second half saw Kariong finally kick into gear and actually outscored The Lakes in the final 40 minutes by 24 points to 21 but it was all far too late. In fact Kariong looked the more dangerous late in the match but they could not reduce the gap that The Lakes had created in the first half. The whole team played well for the visitors but the best for The Lakes on the day were Peni Raulini, Epi Vurle, Logan Hemopo, and Macui Raulini. Kariong were best served by No.8 Lachlan Peruch, who never stopped all day, Tyson Potger, who crossed for 2 tries, and Aiden Chambers. Like the match above, and despite the score, both teams will take much from the match and can expect a good season ahead.

Terrigal convincingly defeated Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval by 70 points to nil. Terrigal crossed for 10 tries in the match, and five-eight Adam Danckert converted all 10 tries. The first quarter of the match was a very even affair with neither team giving an inch. However after this early evenly contested period, the Terrigal team sprung into action and Woy Woy simply had no answer to the visitor attack. Terrigal went to the halftime break leading by 35 points to nil, and were able to post the same number of points in the second half. Terrigal were very good and showed why even at this early stage of the season they are the competition frontrunners. They worked well as a unit for the whole 80 minutes. Woy Woy were far from disgraced and they know they played last year’s Premiers first up and they will get stronger as the year progresses. They never stopped trying for the entire 80 minutes. Best for Terrigal were five-eight Adam Danckert, who posted 25 individual points in the match, centre Arana Taumata and prop James Hall. Woy Woy were best served by back Wade Hannell who gave everything all day.

Women’s 10’s rugby saw some exciting clashes over the weekend. Although only 4 teams were in action, there was plenty of action on the paddock. Terrigal easily accounted for Woy Woy, while Warnervale had a great start to their season with a win over Ourimbah.
