REPORT :
The fifth last round in Central Coast Rugby Union yesterday proved the most interesting this year. As the competition builds towards the Finals Series all teams are trying their best to make their mark on this year’s competition. Some teams are trying to reach the Finals while others are simply trying to perform well in their remaining few matches.

The Match of the Day yesterday saw Terrigal prove too strong for Gosford at Gosford Showground and ran out winners by 45 points to 19. Terrigal proved dominant right from the opening whistle. They were quick to the breakdown and their backline showed poise and speed to get over the advantage line on numerous occasions. Terrigal opened the scoring with a converted try and it did control proceedings in the opening minutes. Gosford did respond however with a very good 50 metre try of their own to level the scores at 7 all early in the match. However it was in the middle stages of the first half that Terrigal really did play some very effective rugby. As a result of this play they crossed for three further tries in this period to take a very handy lead of 26 points to 7. At that stage it seemed all was over unless Gosford responded quickly. Both teams did score a try each in the final minutes of the first half for Terrigal to go to the halftime break leading by 33 points to 12. It did prove a match winning lead. Terrigal deserved the lead and Gosford were finding it hard to find any answers to their attack. Best players for Terrigal were flankers Sam Kenny and Ryan Metcalfe, five-eight Jayden Woolley, outside centre Arana Taumata and lock Will McDonald. Gosford were trying everything to stay in the match. Their best players on the day included forwards Vince Stewart and Jackson Steinbeck, Adam Carlisle, in his 300th Premier 1 match, and centre Josh McGlynn. The second half was a far more even affair with some pleasing rugby on display. Terrigal did only score 2 tries to one in the final 40 minutes but their first half performance did cement their final victory. The win sees Terrigal firmly placed in second spot on the competition ladder with 4 weeks remaining the competition.

The match at Heazlett Park between Avoca Beach and The Lakes ended in a 37 all draw. It was certainly a cliff- hanger. There was absolutely nothing in this match throughout, obviously on the scoreboard and on the paddock. The Lakes led at halftime by the narrow margin of 21 points to 17 and play continued in much the same vein in the last 40 minutes. This draw leaves Avoca Beach in fourth spot on the competition ladder but only the one point in front of The Lakes in fifth spot. It will be real tussle between these two teams from here on in to see who qualifies for the semi-finals this year. This match proved there is nothing between them in this race. It was an enthralling game at Heazlett, and certainly the crowd on hand were on edge for the entire 80 minutes. Best players for Avoca Beach were back Mitch Jacob, prop Luke Sheridan, and Zac Montgomery in his first appearance in the top grade. The Lakes had several good performers also. None were better than their fullback Macui Raulini, who crossed for 2 tries, Eddie Vuniwawa and Noah Halapipi. Avoca Beach did score 5 tries to 4 but good goal kicking kept The Lakes on an even keel on the scoreboard. The remaining four rounds this season makes for an interesting struggle between these two teams for the Finals.

The other two matches on Coast yesterday were very close. Kariong defeated Hornsby by 27 points to 24 at Kariong Oval. There was nothing in this match also for the entire 80 minutes. Hornsby did actually score 4 tries to 3 but the goal kicking of Kariong flanker Lachlan Peruch kept them in the match and in front on the scoreboard. Kariong led by the narrow margin of 14 points to 12 at the halftime break and they were able to maintain that difference for the remainder of the match. Hornsby would be most disappointed in the final result and for the second week in a row they have been close but not close enough at the end of the day. Best players for Kariong were Lachlan Peruch, Ryan Wallbank, and Jayden Stanley. Hornsby were best served by Toby Forde, who crossed for two individual tries, Tevita Palu, and Sossasia Akaveka.

The other close match was at Woy Woy Oval which saw Warnervale hang on for a narrow 29 points to 24 win over the home side Woy Woy. Like the game above, the losing side scored more tries on the day but lost the match. Woy Woy scored 4 tries to Warnervale’s 3 but it was excellent goal kicking by Warnervale’s Cameron McNamara that kept them in the match and in front at fulltime. The match was very even in the first half and Warnervale went to the halftime break with only a narrow lead of 14 points to 12 so it was all up for grabs in the final 40 minutes. Best players for Warnervale were back Ben Butler, Brenton Acreman, Cameron McNamara and Jared Pomare. Woy Woy went close to getting the win but it was not to be. Best players for the home side were Fokolulu Taumololo and Jackson Dewar, who both scores a pair of tries each, and Luke McIntyre.

Ourimbah secured a comfortable win in President’s Cup when they defeated The Entrance by 54 points to 7 at Joseph Banks Oval.

Women’s 7’s rugby saw some hard fought clashes over the weekend. Wins to Avoca Beach, Hornsby and Woy Woy saw these three teams help secure their positions in the semi-finals.

REPORT :
Round 13 in Central Coast Rugby Union continued yesterday with some enthralling games of rugby, but also with some very convincing victories.

The Match of the Day saw Terrigal play some of their best rugby of the season to gain a massive 82 points to 0 victory over Warnervale at Woongarrah Oval. It was one way traffic from the start to the finish. Warnervale simply had no answer to the continual onslaught. They tried to stem the flow but could simply make no headway. Terrigal went to the halftime break leading by 36 points to nil and the match was already over by then. Terrigal continued to play outstanding rugby in the second half and were able to post a further 46 points in the final 40 minutes. Terrigal crossed for 14 tries in the match. Best players for Terrigal were outside centre Arana Taumata, who crossed for 2 tries, forward Josh Vainikolo and Jayden Woolley, who posted a personal tally of 17 points. The win sees Terrigal maintain second spot on the competition ladder while the Finals’ hopes for Warnervale appear to have disappeared this season.

Avoca Beach continued their good recent form when they defeated Hornsby by 33 points to 12 at Mark Taylor Oval. The first half was a totally even affair and both teams went to the halftime break locked at nil all. Both teams had their chances to score in the first 40 minutes but good defence from both teams prevented any points scoring in that period. However the second half was a quite different story. A total of 45 points were posted in the second half but 33 of those were scored by Avoca Beach. The visitors played the better rugby in that second period and deserved the win. Hornsby on the other hand would be most disappointed with their efforts during that period. Avoca Beach were able to cross for 5 tries in the final 40 minutes while Hornsby were only able to respond with two. Best players for Avoca Beach were Brad Mitchell, who scored a try, Jake McPhie and Mitch Jacob. Hornsby was best served by five-eight Sam White and front rower Angus McQueen. The win sees Avoca Beach go back into the Top Four at the expense of The Lakes.

Gosford hang on to defeat Kariong by 22 points to 15 at Kariong Oval. This was a very tight match throughout and Gosford would be most relived to get the victory. The first half was very close and Gosford only led by 10 points to 7 at the halftime break. The cold windy conditions were having an effect on all matches but especially on the hill at Kariong. Gosford always stayed in front on the scoreboard but Kariong were also always in shooting range. Late in the second half Gosford led by 19 points to 15 and a late penalty goal made the final score 22 -15. Gosford scored 3 tries to two and that fact showed the closeness of the match. Gosford cement their third position on the ladder and will be looking forward to their clash with second placed Terrigal next Saturday. Both teams played quite good rugby in the conditions. Best players for Gosford were veteran Adam Carlisle, who crossed for 2 tries, and debutant Nale Fanua. Best for Kariong were flanker Mick Farrell and fullback Kyle Sabroe.

Ourimbah defeated Woy Woy very easily at Ourimbah Rugby Park and the final score was 67 points to 0. Like the match at Woongarrah, this match was totally dominated by one team, Ourimbah. They controlling proceedings from the opening whistle and were never in doubt of getting the victory. Ourimbah went to the halftime break leading by 36 points to nil and were in total control. Woy Woy did play a little better in the second half but the match was well and truly gone by that stage. Best players for Ourimbah were No.8 Jarrod Grange, winger Trent Harrison, prop Jordan Clark and centre Brenton Law. However it was an excellent overall team performance by the home side to enable them to maintain their undefeated run this season. Best for Woy Woy were Alex Moore and Kane Burns.

The Lakes secured a vital win in President’s Cup when they defeated The Entrance by 26 points to 21 at Slade Park. This was a hard fought clash from start to finish.

Women’s 7’s rugby saw some hard fought clashes over the weekend. Wins to Terrigal, Avoca Beach, Ourimbah and Woy Woy saw the struggle for the Finals Series continue.

REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union competition continued with all matches resulting in some exciting rugby.

The Match of the Day at Heazlett Park saw Ourimbah hang on to defeat Avoca Beach by 34 points to 26. In a see-sawing match both teams had their periods in the lead only to see the scores change quite regularly throughout the 80 minutes. It was an exciting game of rugby from start to finish and it was a very pleasing game of rugby for those in attendance. There was nothing in this match on the scoreboard even though Ourimbah did score 6 tries to three in the match. It was some very good goal kicking by Avoca Beach’s Shaun Townsend that kept the home team very much in the picture. The first half was a very even affair. It was Avoca Beach who went to the halftime break leading by 21 points to 19 after they scored a converted try right on the halftime whistle. Both teams were putting everything into the clash – it was hard, tough rugby. The second half continued in much the same way with both teams throwing everything at each other. However it was Ourimbah who outlasted the home side in what was another win for the Ourimbah outfit. However it was Ourimbah’s closest contest of the year and things were certainly tight for the entire 80 minutes. Ourimbah had several very good performers. On top of the list was lock Josefa Biu, who crossed for 2 tries, Jarrod Grange, Jack Sheahan and Kaitu Kausana. Best for Avoca Beach on the day were Fion Henderson-Foley, Shaun Townsend, Matt Anderson and Mitch Jacob. Ourimbah continue to lead the competition while Avoca Beach, even though dropping out of the Top Four, know they can return there based on this performance.

Warnervale secured a significant victory when they defeated Kariong by 21 points to 12 at Woongarrah Oval No.1 yesterday. This match was also even stevens for much of the 80 minutes. Neither team could get ahead to any significant extent in the first half. The two teams went to the halftime break locked at 7 points apiece so obviously the match was certainly up for grabs from that point on. The second half continued to be hard fought and evenly contested. Warnervale did however score 2 tries to one in the final 40 minutes to grab the win. The win keeps Warnervale in contention for the Finals but they will have to keep winning from now on in. Best players for Warnervale were Jacob Griffin and Mitch Reilly in the backs, while winger Atunisia Turagabeci scored yet another try this season. It was an impressive win by the home side where the whole team played as a unit. On the other hand Kariong would be most disappointed with the result after performing quite well last week in the night game against Terrigal. Best for Kariong were Lachlan Peruch, Nick Farrell and Jai Clack.

Gosford defeated Hornsby by 33 points to 26 in what proved quite an even affair at Woongarrah Oval No.2. Hornsby got away to the better start in this match and midway through the first half they had jumped to a 14 points to 7 lead. However by halftime Gosford had regained the ascendancy and went to the break leading by 26 points to 14. It seemed at that stage the Gosford team had things firmly in control after coming from behind and taking a very handy lead. However the second half saw Hornsby push Gosford the whole way. In fact the second stanza saw Hornsby outscore Gosford to the tune of 12 points to 7 but they could not make up the leeway that Gosford had established in the first half. Best for Gosford were five-eight Adam Carlisle, lock Alec Corcoran and forward Daniel Glaves. Hornsby were best served by Wes Faupula and Leone Naisaorotaboa, who together scored all Hornsby’s tries. Gosford maintain third position on the table with some important matches coming up over the next few weeks. Hornsby would be happy with the performance despite the loss and will take a lot from this contest.

The Lakes returned to the Top Four with a resounding 54 points to 17 win over Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval. It was a most convincing performance from start to finish and they certainly showed what their backline can do when supplied with a good supply of steady ball. They jumped to a 21 points to 0 lead early in the match before Woy Woy hit back late in the half with two very good tries. The Lakes went to the halftime break leading by 21 points to 12 so despite the good start the visitors knew they had a battle on their hands. However The Lakes commenced the second half just like the first. They crossed for another three converted tries and very early on in the second stanza had jumped to a match winning lead of 42 points to 12. It was a very good performance by The Lakes and the win puts them into fourth spot on the competition ladder. Woy Woy had their moments in the match were never really in the contest. Best for The Lakes were five-eight Marshall Hemopo, Peni Raulini, halfback Logan Hemopo, and Noah Halaapiapi, who crossed for 3 individual tries. Best for Woy Woy were lock Kane Burns, halfback Zach Doak-Stride, and centre Fokolulu Taumololo, who crossed for 2 tries.


At The Haven Oval, in the President’s Cup, Terrigal defeated The Entrance by 27 points to 10. This was a very solid win by Terrigal and cements their position near the top of the competition ladder.

Women’s 7’s rugby saw Avoca Beach, The Lakes, Woy Woy, Warnervale and Kariong all secure very good victories in their respective matches on Saturday. The highlight of the day was Kariong’s first win of the season.

REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union competition witnessed some quite gripping games of rugby on Saturday afternoon and evening.
The Match of the Day between Gosford and The Lakes at Gosford Showground resulted in a win to Gosford by 28 points to 5. Gosford took control of this match very early on and were never headed. In fact for much of the first half Gosford was camped on The Lakes’ territory and The Lakes were finding it quite impossible to get out of that area. Gosford were playing some very effective rugby and were not allowing the visitors any leeway in this first half. Gosford went to the halftime break leading by 21 points to nil and these three tries had certainly put the home team on the road to victory. It was only later in the first 40 minutes that The Lakes were able to gain some territory and look a little dangerous. The second half was a far more even affair with both teams having their chances of posting points. However because of that first half lead Gosford never seemed to get challenged on the paddock and on the scoreboard. They crossed for their fourth try midway through the half and this lead of 28 points to nil saw them gain the victory. The Lakes did cross for a try right on fulltime but the match was well and truly all over by then. Gosford confirmed their third position on the competition table while the loss by The Lakes sees them drop out of the Top Four. Best players for Gosford were centre Josh McGlynn, flanker Sean Anzelark, while Jackson Steinbeck was rewarded with two very good tries. It was just not The Lakes’ day although their players gave their best. Best for the visitors were halfback Logan Hemopo, while Eddie Vuniwawa scored his team’s only points.

The night game saw Terrigal record a 26 points to 7 win over Kariong at The Haven Oval. In front of a pleasing crowd the match proved a tight struggle throughout although Terrigal were always ahead on the scoreboard. Terrigal opened up the scoring early in the match and by the midway point of the first half already had a lead of 12 points to nil after they had crossed for two very good tries. It seemed at that stage that the home team may take complete control in the match. However much of the remainder of the first half, and of the match, proved a real arm wrestle. Both teams were playing some pleasing rugby and Kariong were definitely putting on one of their best displays for the season. Kariong got themselves back in the match when their centre Brent Bovis crossed adjacent to the posts for a converted try which reduced the Terrigal lead to 12 points to 7. However just prior to halftime Terrigal went further ahead when they crossed for a third try to lead by 19 points to 7 at the halftime break. The second half was a very dour battle. Both teams gave it their all. Both teams had chances to score but some dropped passes at key times did prevent further point scoring. In fact there was only the lone try in the final 40 minutes and that was to Terrigal and that try did cement the victory for the home side. The score line of 28 points to 7 was enough for the home side to hang on for victory. Best players for Terrigal were prop Nathan Simpson, flankers Sam Kenny and Ethan McInnes, and halfback Sekope Maea. No. 8 Phil Brown, flankers Lachlan Peruch and Josh Bottero, and centre Brent Bovis put in the best performances for Kariong. The win sees Terrigal remain in second spot on the competition ladder while Kariong must win many games from now on if they are to make the Final Four this year. Both teams would be pleased with their efforts last night.

Ourimbah continued on their winning ways with a very comfortable win over Hornsby at Woongarrah Oval by 62 points to 7. It was basically one way traffic for most of the match. Ourimbah jumped to the lead very early in the match and were never to be headed for the entire 80 minutes. Ourimbah led by 33 points to nil at the halftime break and then went on to record a further 29 points in the second stanza. Ourimbah stay at the top of the competition table and also maintain their undefeated record for this season. The best players for Ourimbah were winger Daniel Ford, back Tyron Davis and half back Josh Holman. It was not one of Hornsby’s better days but the players never faltered in trying to get into the match. Best players for them were Sam White and their try scoring back Leone Naisaorotaboa .

Avoca Beach returned to the winners list with a 26 points to 16 win over Woy Woy at Heazlett Park. This contest was a quite even affair throughout and both teams could have won on the day. Woy Woy went to the halftime break leading in this match by 13 points to 10 so it was any body’s match at that stage. Avoca Beach did score three tries to two in the encounter so that fact alone probably shows that Avoca Beach deserved to win on the day but also showed the closeness of the struggle. There were missed opportunities for both teams on the day. Avoca Beach, with the win, however return to the Top Four and would be most pleased with that. Woy Woy played well and may consider themselves a little unlucky but it seems that is how their season is unfolding. Best players for Avoca Beach were young winger Alex Halls, No.8 Fion Henderson-Foley and Mitch Jacob. Shaun Townsend, on his return to the club, also played well and posted 11 individual points. Woy Woy were best served by locks Edward Kelly and Kane Burns, and prop Tyrone Fleming had one of his best games this season.

Women’s 7’s rugby saw wins to Terrigal, Hornsby and Avoca Beach in what proved an exciting round of women’s rugby across the Central Coast.

REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union competition continued yesterday with some enthralling results. There were some lopsided results but also some very close tussles.
The Match of the Day between Ourimbah and The Lakes at Ourimbah Rugby Park saw Ourimbah continue on their wining ways and the home side ran out winners by 39 points to 12. Early in the match Ourimbah did not have it all their own way. The first half was a tight struggle but it was Ourimbah who took the early lead. They had jumped to a 12 points to nil lead in the first half and things looked ominous for The Lakes. However they put in a most dogged performance and put themselves right back into the match with a try later in the half. Ourimbah went to the halftime break leading by 12 points to 7. The match was then still very much there for the taking. However Ourimbah continued their great second half form. They proved too strong in that final 40 minutes and were able to post 27 further points in that period. The Lakes gave it their all. In fact The Lakes were very much in the match until midway through the second half before Ourimbah took control and stormed ahead both on the scoreboard and on the paddock. The Ourimbah scrum was the dominant feature of the match. Best players for Ourimbah were winger Daniel Ford, who crossed for 4 tries, flanker Jack Sheehan and Jarrod Grange. The Lakes had several very good performers. These included prop Dan Aliifaalago, halfback Logan Hemopo, No.8 Blake Moroney and winger Noah Hallipalli. Ourimbah confirmed their lead at the top of the competition ladder while The Lakes, despite the loss, hang on to fourth position.

Terrigal defeated Hornsby at Woongarrah Oval No.2 in what turned out to be such a high scoring match. The final score in Terrigal’s favour, 62 points to 37, saw a total of 99 points scored in the match, however it was not until the final period of the match that the result was cemented. The first half saw Hornsby get away to a flyer. It was not long after the kickoff before Hornsby had crossed for 3 tries and were leading by 17 points to nil. It was such a great start for them. Gradually Terrigal hit back and by halftime had taken the lead by a narrow 24 points to 23. It was proving to be such a tightly fought game of rugby. It was high scoring match but one that was so close for the first 65 minutes. Hornsby scored early in the second half to take the lead again and a possible upset was on the cards. Hornsby took three intercepts in the match and these length of the field tries were certainly proving exciting for the spectators. Much of the second half was close however Terrigal was able to post several late tries to jump ahead on the scoreboard. The end result of 62-37 seemed an easy win but it was not. Terrigal did finish the stronger and were able to take control in that final period. Best players for Terrigal were Ethan McInnes, who crossed for 3 tries, fullback Jayden Woolley, who posted an individual tally of 22 points, and back Frankie Webber. Hornsby played well and were right in the match for much of 80 minutes. Beast players for them were winger Harry Fox, fullback Mitch Fullager and five-eight Sam White.

Warnervale defeated Avoca Beach in a nail biter at Woongarrah Oval No.1 by 27 points to 22. Avoca Beach had the slightly better of the first half and led at the halftime break by 8 points to 3. Avoca Beach continued to have the better of play early in the second half and increased their lead early in this half. It all seemed to going quite well for the visitors however the home side suddenly began to put things together. Some good play saw Warnervale storm home and take the lead and the match. Warnervale scored 4 tries to 3 in the 80 minutes and that fact alone showed the closeness of the result. The game could have gone either way but some good play by Warnervale in the final stages of the match saw them grab the victory. The win keeps Warnervale’s slim hopes of a Finals berth alive but they must win nearly all their remaining fixtures from now on. But besides that, the club would be most happy with this result. Best players for Warnervale were back Jacob Griffin, Sione Tonga and Dean Crofsky. Avoca Beach was best served by Mitch Jacob, newcomer to Premier 1 Alex Halls, hooker Fion Henderson-Foley, and Blake Jacob. Avoca Beach remains in fifth spot but will need to get those vital wins soon if they are to return to the Top Four.

Gosford convincingly defeated Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval to the tune of 51 points to 15. It was totally Gosford’s match and they controlled things from the start to the finish. Woy Woy were never in the first 40 minutes and Gosford almost ran at random during that period. By halftime Gosford had jumped to match winning 31 points to nil lead and the match was all but over even at that stage. The match continued in much the same vein early in the second half. Woy Woy did get going a little in the second half when they crossed for 2 tries but it was all too late. Gosford ran in 8 tries to the home team’s 2 to emphatically record an important win for them. Gosford remain in third spot on the competition ladder. Woy Woy would be most disappointed with their performance after such a great effort last Saturday against Kariong. Best players for Gosford were winger Michael Jones, flanker Sean Anzelark, lock Alex Corcoran and centre Josh McGlynn. Best for the home team were five-eight Damon Boxswell and halfback Zac Doak-Stride.

Kariong secured a tight win in President’s Cup when they defeated The Entrance by 19 points to 12 at Kariong Oval. This was a hard fought clash from start to finish.

Women’s 7’s rugby saw several hard fought clashes yesterday. Wins to Terrigal, The Lakes and Avoca Beach resulted in some exciting women’s rugby across the Central Coast.
