REPORT :
The Match of the Day at Ourimbah Rugby Park saw a see-sawing battle from start to finish between the Razorbacks and Warnervale. The match was played in very heavy conditions and the match ended up in a 19 all draw. The first half was a real arm wrestle. There were opportunities to score but there were not too many. In fact, in the first 40 minutes of the match both teams were only able to add two penalty goals each to the scoreboard. The score line of 6 all at the end of the first half was a fair indication of the flow of the match. The second half continued in much the same vein. Neither team was giving much away and it was proving most difficult to post further points. Warnervale took the lead early in the second half with a converted try while Jarrod Grange kicked his third penalty goal for the Razorbacks to allow them to stay in touch. The Razorbacks did cross for 2 tries in the last quarter of the match to square up the match. The Razorbacks did score 2 tries to one but good goalkicking by Warnervale’s Cameron McNamara keep the visitors in touch. Best players for the Razorbacks were No.8 Josefa Biu, and centres Owen Turner and Rob Peden, while for Warnervale the best performers were flankers Kye Haslam and Tevita Piukala, and hooker Cameron McNamara. These two teams showed they will be threats all year and will be in the reckoning at the business end of the season.

The Lakes and Avoca Beach met at Woongarrah Oval in what was another a hard fought and intense battle. Avoca Beach secured the victory by 42 points to 24. The match had been moved to Woongarrah from Budgewoi due to the continuing dampness of Slade Park. Avoca Beach got away to the better start and had crossed for the opening try within the first few minutes. Avoca Beach continued to control things for much of the first half. They crossed for a further two tries in that first half while The Lakes stayed in the picture with their own two tries. Effective goal kicking by Avoca Beach’s Sam Evans maintained a handy distance for Avoca Beach on the scoreboard and Avoca Beach went to the halftime break leading by a handy 24 points to 10. The Lakes were unable to convert either of their tries. Avoca Beach continued to control things in the early parts of the second half. They were able to jump to 35 points to 10 lead midway through the second half and things were not looking good for The Lakes at that stage. The Lakes did get part way back into the match when they crossed for 2 tries but a late 70 metre try to Avoca Beach sealed the win for the Avoca Beach team. It was an excellent performance by Avoca Beach and the win maintained their position at the top of the competition ladder. Best players for Avoca Beach were lock Michael Hobden, No.8 Matt Anderson and fullback Mitchell Briggs. It has been a difficult year for The Lakes, being unable to train at their home ground, but they showed they do have the potential to trouble all teams this year. Best players for The Lakes were No.8 Paul Sipu, lock Harry Pirini and centre Paul Wilson.

Kariong were able to defeat Gosford at Ettalong Oval by 31 points to 13. It was a good game of rugby and it was not until the second half that Kariong were able to secure the win. The first half was a closely fought battle with both teams playing some very effective rugby. Kariong went to the halftime break leading by the single point - by 7 points to 6. The match was very much up for grabs at that stage and both teams were showing some great skills. Best players for Kariong at this stage were flanker Justin Atkins, lock Taylor Mildren and halfback Scott Hanley. Gosford at the same time were best served by five-eight Ben Shelley, No.8 Jackson Steinbeck, and flankers Chad Sneyd and Hugo Pike. These four experienced players led the younger Gosford team from start to finish. The scores remined very tight until midway through the second half. However, it was Kariong who continued to show their good recent form by taking control in the final stages of the match. The win confirms Kariong’s second spot on the competition ladder while the performance from Gosford showed they are improving as the year goes on.

Terrigal were able to secure a convincing win over Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval, running out winners by 76 pints to 3. It was Terrigal in control for the entire 80 minutes to which Woy Woy had no answer. It was a slow start and the scores were only locked at 3 points apiece early on but very soon after it was Terrigal who soon got control. Terrigal had jumped to a 36 point to 3 lead at the halftime break so the match was in their control even at that stage. Terrigal was able to post a further 40 points to nil in the second half. Woy Woy tried to stop the Terrigal attack but it was proving most difficult. Best players for Terrigal were five-eight Adam Danckert, prop Todd Atkins, centre Harry Hughes and prop Harry Gray. Woy Woy were best served by flanker Jazper Doak-Stride, centre Bruce Folau and halfback Tiraho Pakai.

The Bay President’s Cup team had a very narrow loss to Hornsby, going down by the narrow margin of 19 points to 17.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. Comfortable wins were recorded by Terrigal, Warnervale and Avoca Beach.

REPORT :
The Match of the Day at Woongarrah Oval saw home side Warnervale and visiting Avoca Beach put an intense game of rugby. Avoca Beach were able to get the win, running out winners by 27 points to 12. Avoca Beach got away to the better start in the match and crossed for the first try early on. Avoca Beach were able to maintain the better of things for much of the first half and were able to go to the halftime break leading by 15 points to nil. They were able to cross for two tries and at the same time keep the home side scoreless in the opening 40 minutes. It was a tough struggle both in the backs and the forwards. Best players for Avoca Beach were No.8 Matt Anderson, playing his 300th game for the club, centre Steve Pike, halfback Mitch Magrath and winger Josh Parrish, who was able to cross for two tries later in the match. Warnervale were best served by halfback Brenton Acreman, No.8 Tevita Piukala and centre Sione Piukala. The second half was a far more even affair with both teams posting 12 points each in the final 40 minutes. The match was interrupted by a serious injury which obviously affected both teams. The win sees Avoca Beach jump to the top of the competition ladder while Warnervale drop to third spot.

The Lakes and Kariong met at Kariong Oval in what was another a hard fought and intense battle between two teams desperate for points. Kariong held on to secure a 33 points to 24 win. The match had been moved to Kariong from Budgewoi due to the continuing dampness of Slade Park. This match was also cut short because of a serious injury late in the match. Kariong opened the scoring with a try in the opening few minutes but The Lakes were quick to respond with their own converted try. It was a very open game with both teams determined to spread the ball. Despite the dampness of the pitch, both teams put on a great display of rugby. Kariong scored their second try in the 10th minute to lead by 12 points to 7. Kariong were able to lead the match from then until the end of the match. However, every time Kariong got away on the scoreboard, The Lakes were able to respond to keep in touch. However, they were unable to bridge the gap. Kariong went to the break leading by 26 points to 19 and even at that stage both teams sensed they could get the victory. Both teams were able to only score the single try each in the second half. The second half was notable for the good defence from both teams. Best players for Kariong were fullback Jake Hubbard, centre Lachlan Peruch and lock Nick Outram. Best performances for The Lakes included five-eight Brayden Hutchinson-Walters, prop Tim Poese and centre Lathan Hutchinson-Walters. The win sees Kariong jump into third position on the competition ladder.

The Razorbacks and Terrigal met at Ourimbah Rugby Park and it was the Razorbacks who got the win on the day by 25 points to 14. The first half was a typical arm wrestle. Both teams threw everything at the contest and no quarter was asked for or given. However, it was the Razorbacks who got the better of the opening 40 minutes. The Razorbacks opened the scoring with two early penalty goals to Jarrod Grange. This 6 nil score line remained the score for much of the first half. The Razorbacks were able to extend that lead to 11 points to nil prior to half time. It was a handy lead at the break but both teams knew there was much on offer in the second half. Unfortunately, there was an extended delay at the start of the second half because of a serious injury and this would have had an affect on both teams. Play did resume in the second half and both teams were able to cross for two converted tries in that period. The second half ended up 14 points all. However, it was the first half that saw the Razorbacks gain the victory. The Razorbacks would welcome their return to the winner’s list. Both teams will take a lot out of this result. Best players for the Razorbacks were locks Steve Finley and Josefa Biu, and No.8 Rob Peden. Terrigal were best served by prop Harry Gray and centre Richard Hooper.

Hornsby travelled to Woy Woy Oval to take on home side Woy Woy and were able to record a most convincing victory, winning by 89 points to 22. Hornsby got away to a rapid start and it was not very long before they had posted their first 4 tries. This same control and dominance continued right through the first half and by half time the visitors had leapt to a totally commanding 63 points to 7 lead. It was certainly not Woy Woy’s half. To Woy Woy’s great credit, they performed much better in the second half – Woy Woy was only beaten by 26 points to 15 in the second half. It was a far more convincing performance by Woy Woy but the first half onslaught by Hornsby saw them with no chance of victory. Best players for Hornsby were centre Brad Dixon, who crossed for 3 tries, centre Hunter Bird and prop Aisea Tukipili. Best performers for Woy Woy were Jackson Dewar, lock Jordan Ross and flanker Jazper Doak-Stride.

The Bay President’s Cup team had the bye this weekend.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. The two matches on display demonstrated some highly skilled 10’s rugby. Comfortable wins were recorded by Terrigal and Avoca Beach

REPORT :
The Match of the Day at Tuggerah Sporting Complex was a high scoring clash between The Razorbacks and Kariong. The match was moved to Tuggerah because Kariong Oval had been deemed unfit to use. Kariong won this clash by 50 points to 26. The Razorbacks opened the scoring in the match with the first try but it was not long before Kariong replied and took the lead. Kariong had the better of the first half and by half time had jumped to a handy 27 point to 12 lead. Best players for Kariong at this stage were hooker Richard Harvey, centre Mitch Clay and lock Nic Outram. The Razorbacks had a good period of play early in the second half when they were able to respond with 2 converted tries. At the midway point of the second half the score was quite close, with Kariong leading by 32 points to 26. The match could have gone either way at that stage. Best players for the Razorbacks at this were prop Steve Finley, who had crossed for 3 tries, halfback Jarrod Grange, and fullback Toby Carver. However, it was all Kariong in the final quarter of the match. They were able to take control on the paddock and thus surge ahead on the scoreboard. Kariong were able to post 18 points to nil in this final period of the match. Kariong have shown they are Finals contenders while the Razorbacks will build on this as the season progresses.

Avoca Beach proved far too strong for Woy Woy, running out winners by 62 points to 7 at Ettalong Oval. This match had been transferred to Ettalong Oval due to the closure of Heazlett Park. Avoca Beach controlled this match from start to finish. They proved far too strong in the set pieces and by half time had jumped to a 31 points to nil lead. Much the same continued in the second half where Woy Woy had no answer to the onslaught. The result sees Avoca Beach in great form and one of the Premiership contenders at this stage of the season. Best players for Avoca Beach were hooker Cooper Elliott, No.8 Matt Anderson, halfback Mitch Magrath and winger Joe Carroll, who crossed for three individual tries. Woy Woy’s best performers were fullback Cory Delaforce, who scored their lone try, hooker Sione Fanua and halfback Tiraho Pakai

Warnervale ran out victors over Gosford by 29 points to7 at Woongarah Oval. This match had also been changed from Gosford Showground with Gosford losing that vital home ground advantage. Warnervale certainly did not have it all their own way in this match, and it took much of the match before Warnervale was able to assert their control on the match. Gosford scored first with a converted try, but by halftime Warnervale had taken the lead by 12 points to 7. It was still anybody’s game at that stage. Warnervale cemented the win in the second half with 2 further tries while Gosford were unable to respond on the scoreboard. Best players for Warnervale were prop Jack Gary, who scored 2 tries, flanker Kye Haslam and halfback Brenton Acreman. Gosford were best served by their front row, namely props Ben Harvey Suli Hakalo. Both teams will take a lot from this match – Warnervale sit at the top of the competition ladder while Gosford proved they will be most competitive this year.

The Terrigal v. Hornsby games were not played due to covid issues.

The Bay President’s Cup team met The Lakes at Joseph Banks Oval in what proved an enthralling game of rugby. The Lakes ran out winners by 41 points to 7.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. The two matches on display demonstrated some highly skilled 10’s rugby. A comfortable win was recorded by The Lakes over Kariong/Razorbacks, while Terrigal had a very close win over Hornsby.

REPORT :
The Match of the Day at The Haven Oval saw a closely fought encounter throughout. On a clear cool evening Terrigal were able to hang on to defeat Avoca Beach by 22 points to 18. The match was played before a huge crowd and the clash lived up to all expectations. Terrigal opened the scoring early with a try to take a 5 points to nil lead. This remained the score line for the first quarter of the match before Avoca Beach were able to respond with a penalty goal to reduce the lead to 5 points to 3. The remainder of the first half was hard fought and intense, and the only points scored during that time were 4 penalty goals - 3 to Terrigal and one to Avoca Beach. The halftime score of 14 points to 6 showed that the match was very much up for grabs. Terrigal had the better of the start of the second half. They were able to cross for their second try and also posted a further penalty goal. At the midway points of the second half Terrigal had jumped to a handy 22 points to 6 lead and it seemed at that stage that they would go on with it. However Avoca Beach were not to be outdone. The visitors actually had the better of the finals stages of the match and were coming home at full steam. Avoca Beach were able to cross for their two tries late in the match and suddenly the match was there for the taking. The score had been reduced to 22 – 18, but Terrigal were able to hang on to record the victory. Both teams will take a huge amount from this contest. The fact that both teams scored two tries apiece showed there was not too much between these two teams. Best players for Terrigal were centre Harry Hughes, flanker Sam Kenny, lock Macklin Collins and prop Harry Gray. Best for Avoca Beach were centre Mitch Jacob, in his 100th First Grade match for the club, hooker Cooper Elliott and No.8 Fionn Henderson-Foley.

The northern derby between The Lakes and Warnervale was hard fought from start to finish. Warnervale proved too strong on the day and ran out winners by 36 points to 26. The match was moved to Woongarrah Oval because of the damp conditions at Slade Park so immediately The Lakes lost their home ground advantage. The match opened up very evenly and remained that way for much of the match. The Lakes crossed for a try first but Warnervale were quick to respond with their own try. The first half went point for point but it was Warnervale who went to the halftime break leading by the narrow margin of 15 points to 12. Both teams would have felt at that stage that the match was theirs for the taking. However it was Warnervale who took a further lead early in the second half. They jumped to a 22 points to 12 lead before The Lakes hit back to make the score 22- 19. It was at this stage that Warnervale surged ahead again and jumped to a winning lead of 36 points to 19. The Lakes did score late in the match but Warnervale had won the battle of the northern clubs. Both teams proved they will be in the action later in the year. The win takes Warnervale to the top of the competition ladder. Best players for Warnervale were centre Sione Piukala, lock Lachlan Natapu, flanker Kye Haslam and five-eight Ben Butler. The Lakes were best served by prop Tim Poese, who crossed for 2 tries, and hooker Ben Kaifa.

The Razorbacks hit some good form to defeat Hornsby at Pennant Hills Oval No.1 by 31 points to 19. The Razorbacks got away to a great start in the match and it was not long before they had jumped away to a 14 points to nil lead. It did seem ominous for the home team Hornsby at that early stage. However Hornsby hit back. They were able to respond and were able to square up the scores by the halftime break, when the scores were locked at 14 points apiece. However in the second stanza it was the Razorbacks who stamped their authority on the match. Through some pleasing rugby the visitors were able to jump to a handy 31 points to 14 lead late in the match. Hornsby did respond with a late try but it was all too late. Best players for the Razorbacks were halfback Jarrod Grange, and locks James Mann and Josefa Biu. Hornsby was best served by five-eight Hunter Bird and flanker Epeli Kauvka.

Gosford recorded their first win of the season when they accounted for Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval by 26 points to 7. Woy Woy opened up the scoring early in the match and it was just the start they wanted. However this converted try lead was not to last long. Gosford were quick to respond with their own try when their five-eight Ben Shelley made a brilliant 70 metre dash to the try line. This made the score 7 all and this was to remain the score at the halftime break. The game was obviously very evenly matched at that stage. Gosford however were gradually able to make some vital inroads in the second half and were able to cross for a further three tries in the second half to secure the victory. At the same time Woy Woy were unable to improve on the halftime score. The win was a huge boost for the Gosford club after what had been a difficult few years. Best players for Gosford were five-eight Ben Shelley, prop Suili Hakalo and flanker Hugo Pike. Woy Woy were best served by flanker Jazper Doak-Stride, No.8 Tali Sitani and centre Corby Delaforce.

The Bay President’s Cup team had the bye yesterday.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. All 6 teams were in action and the skill level across the three matches was exemplary. Comfortable wins were recorded by Hornsby and Terrigal, and The Lakes hung on to defeat Warnervale in close one.

REPORT :
Despite some upheavals with venues because of the continuing damp conditions, Central Coast Rugby Union was able to get all matches on the paddock for Round 4, with some excellent games of rugby played across the Coast yesterday.

In the Match of the Day at Woongarrah No. 2 Oval, the Razorbacks and Avoca Beach met. This match was transferred north because Ourimbah Rugby Park was unavailable. Avoca Beach were able to hang on in this match to defeat the Razorbacks by 24 points to 19. This was an evenly fought encounter throughout. Avoca Beach led the match for the entire 80 minutes but the Razorbacks were always just behind on the scoreboard. Every time Avoca Beach seem to jump ahead, it was the Razorbacks who responded to kept the scores close. Avoca Beach opened the scoring in the match with a converted try and then quickly followed this up with a penalty goal, to take an early 10 points to nil lead. However, the Razorbacks were able to respond before half time with their own converted try. Avoca Beach went to the halftime break leading by a narrow 10 points to7. The match was very much up for grabs at this stage. Avoca Beach went further ahead early in the second half when they crossed for their second try. But once again the Razorbacks responded with their own try. Both teams scored 2 tries apiece in the second stanza to keep the scores very tight. Both teams had plenty of possession, but the fact that both teams scored 3 tries, simply shows the evenness of this contest over the 80 minutes. Best players for Avoca Beach were winger Josh Parish, who scored the 3 tries for his team, hooker Cooper Elliott, and No.8 Fion Henderson-Foley. The Razorbacks were best served by winger Ryan Bender, who crossed for 2 tries, lock James Mann and No.8 Rob Peden.

Kariong were at home to Hornsby at Kariong Oval in the local derby. Kariong were able to easily account for Hornsby by 54 points to 10. Kariong got away to a great start and were able to maintain that momentum for the entire match. The further the match went on, the stronger the home team became. Kariong scored very early and they kept the scoreboard ticking over from then on. By halftime they had jumped to a handy 26 points to 5 lead and even at that stage things did not look good for Hornsby. Kariong maintained the rage in the second half where they were able to post a further 28 points. It was a very consistent performance by the home side.
