CENTRAL COAST RUGBY UNION
PREVIEW
SATURDAY, 30th APRIL, 2022
ROUND 4

The 2022 Central Coast Rugby Union season continues next Saturday with some very exciting clashes.

The Match of the Day in Round 4 will be the clash at Ourimbah Rugby Park when the Razorbacks will host Avoca Beach. Both teams performed very well last week with Avoca Beach getting a close win and the Razorbacks playing out an exciting draw with The Lakes. So both teams have started the season in fine form and will very much like that to continue this form this coming weekend. There is absolutely nothing between these two teams, and the match will play out the full 80 minutes. The home ground advantage to the Razorbacks may be the only difference, in what will be a closely fought struggle.

Kariong Oval will host another exciting clash when Kariong meet Hornsby. This is a local derby and both teams are always so keen to get the victory over the other. Hornsby are coming off a great win last Saturday, while Kariong had a very close loss even though they scored two tries to one last week. Kariong know they can win this clash, but the visiting Hornsby team will also have that same feeling. This is another game of rugby where it is almost impossible to pick a winner.

Terrigal will finally commence their season on Saturday when the play Gosford at The Haven Oval. Terrigal had the bye last Saturday so they will be keen to go. Gosford played quite well last week despite the loss and they will improve as the season goes on. Terrigal will go into the match as favourites based simply on the fact that they are at home and also that they are the reigning Premiers. Gosford have nothing to lose on Saturday and they will push Terrigal for the 80 minutes in this encounter.

Woy Woy will host The Lakes at Woy Woy Oval this coming Saturday. The Lakes will go in this clash as firm favourites based on the results from last weekend. However Woy Woy at home will be much stronger and they will be most keen to make improvements on their efforts from last Saturday. The Lakes were strong in their draw last Saturday and will be keen to secure their first win in this match. This will be an exciting clash. It will be high scoring match as both teams like to spread the ball and this could result in many tries on the day.

The Bay Rugby Club will be playing in the President’s Cup once again this year. On Saturday they will play Warnervale at Woongarrah Oval.

Saturday also sees the Central Coast Women’s 10’s competition continuing. This year the clubs continue with 10-a-side rugby and there will be seven teams in this year’s competition. Unfortunately the Razorbacks and Kariong have combined for the rest of the season. This weekend will see Hornsby play The Lakes, while the combined Razorbacks/ Kariong team are up against Avoca Beach.
