REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with some excellent games of rugby played across the coast yesterday. In the Swietelsky Premier 1 matches, all games saw the team who got away to the early lead went on to victory.

In the Match of the Day at Ourimbah Rugby Park, Ourimbah proved far too strong for The Lakes right from the opening whistle. After a quite even opening few minutes in the match, where both teams had their chances of posting points, it was the Razorbacks who scored first. Within 8 minutes the Razorbacks had crossed for two tries, both to No.8 Rob Peden. He was certainly making his mark on the match. Both tries were under the posts so both were easily converted by flanker Jarrod Grange. This 14 points to nil lead was certainly what the home side wanted. It had put The Lakes on the back foot from which they were not to recover. The Razorbacks scored a converted try later in the first half to go to the halftime break leading by 21 points to nil. It was certainly all the Razorbacks in that first 40 minutes. The Lakes regularly were on attack and went close to scoring on several occasions, but their attack often broke down close to the line and points went begging. Best players for the Razorbacks in the match at this stage were Rob Peden, who ended up scoring 3 tries, centres Owen Turner and Dan Jones, and five-eight Pat Martin. The second stanza continued in much the same vein. The Razorbacks continued to score points while The Lakes simply just could not cross the line when needed. The Razorbacks went on to post a further 31 points in the second half to simply blot out The Lakes in the match. The Lakes never stopped trying, and two tries late in the match relieved some pressure for them. Best for The Lakes was No. 8 Sean Anlezark, while fullback Macui Rauluni was always dangerous with the ball in hand. Ourimbah proved they will be a major threat in the competition this year, while The Lakes will need to regroup after two successive losses.

Avoca Beach travelled to Kariong Oval to meet Kariong in what proved a most interesting match. Kariong held to win by 38 points to 24. Kariong got away to a great start and were able to take control in the first half of the clash. Avoca Beach did kick the opening points with a penalty goal but it was Kariong who then piled on 24 unanswered points in the remainder of the half, to lead by 24 points to 3 at the halftime break. It proved a very handy lead and also a match winning lead. The second half was a much closer affair. In fact Avoca Beach outscored the home side by 21 points to 14 but the first half blitz by Kariong was the winning difference. Avoca Beach played well in the second half and got back within striking distance, when midway through the second period there was only a converted try between the two teams. Kariong were only leading by 31 points to 24 but a late converted try sealed the win for Kariong. Best players for Kariong were lock Taylor Mildren, winger Kane Williams and prop Jackson Parkes. Five eight Mitch Clay was on fire in the opening stages of the match when he crossed for two personal tries. Avoca Beach were best served by No.8 Fion Henderson-Foley, locks Emile Thomas and Pete Steele, and halfback Ben Harding. Kariong will take a lot from this match and they proved they have Final Five hopes all over them this year.

Woongarrah Oval saw a great rugby battle in which Woy Woy just held on to record a 36 points to 31 victory over Warnervale. That score line alone indicated the closeness of the match. It was also a very tough affair with some great attack and very solid defence from both teams. Woy Woy got away to a pleasing start in the match. They led by 14 points to nil early on, and then by 21 points to 5 later in the half. By halftime, Woy Woy had confirmed their lead at 21 points to 12. They had played some excellent rugby and were certainly proving dangerous in attack. Best players for the visitors were flanker Jazper Doak-Stride Stride and centre Junior Stowers, while winger Jim Meya crossed for 2 tries in the match. Warnervale however were not to be outdone. They had several very good performances, but none were better than centre Ethan Sant, fullback Sione Braxton and flanker Kye Haslam. They fought hard in the second half and through some great play, locked the scores up at 31 points apiece in the dying stages of the match. But it was Woy Woy who scored a try right at the end of the match to snatch the victory but 36 points to 31. It was a great half with the home side actually outscoring Woy Woy by 19 points to 12 in the final 40 minutes. Both sides will take a lot from the match going forward.

The Bay lost their President’s Cup clash with Terrigal Blue by 27 points to 21, in what proved a tough tussle throughout.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. Wins were recorded by Gosford/Woy Woy, Avoca Beach and the Razorbacks. Avoca Beach and Gosford/Woy Woy won their respective matches relatively easily, but the Razorbacks had to battle hard to get a close win over The Lakes.

REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with some excellent games of rugby played across the coast yesterday. In the Swietelsky Premier 1 matches, all games were quite close at halftime, although the winning teams did get away on the scoreboard as the second half progressed.

In what was a repeat of last year’s Grand Final, The Lakes took on Terrigal at Slade Park. The result ended in a similar way to last year when Terrigal ran out winners by 28 points to 7. It was a hard fought struggle throughout with both teams displaying some good rugby form. Early on, the scores were locked at 7 points apiece, but it was Terrigal who went to the halftime break leading by 14 points to 7 when they scored a late converted try in that half. The second half continued in much the same vein. Terrigal held the upper hand and it was them who crossed for a further two tries in that final 40 minutes. The Lakes were unable to respond with any points in that same period. Even though Terrigal seemed to have things in control for much of the match it was still always quite close and The Lakes often threatened. The win sees Terrigal firmly at the top of the ladder and leading the race already so early in the season. It was The Lakes’ first hit out of the year so they will be much stronger for the run. Best players for Terrigal were No.8 Elekana Laupola, flanker Aaron Carrigg and winger Richard Hopper, who crossed for two personal tries. The Lakes were best served by flanker Sean Anzelark and No.8 Ben Minness.

Hornsby travelled to Heazlett Park to meet Avoca Beach but it was the home side that recorded a 20 to 5 victory. Avoca Beach played excellent rugby and led throughout to get the win. Avoca Beach played steady rugby right from the opening whistle and were able to consistently post points in the first half. They scored first to lead 5 nil early on, before increasing that lead to 10 nil, and then taking a halftime lead of 17 points to nil. Hornsby had no answer to this attack and were unable to cross the line in the first half. The second half was a very even struggle, and in fact Hornsby outscored Avoca Beach by 5 points to 3 in the final 40 minutes. However all the damage had been done in the first 40 minutes. Hornsby attacked every way possible way in an attempt to bridge the gap but Avoca Beach were able to hang on to record a pleasing win. Avoca Beach also had their opportunities in the second half but simply failed to take them. Best for Avoca Beach were flanker Blake Jacob, and winger Cade Robertson, who crossed for 2 tries. Best for Hornsby on the day were prop Jack Vandersteen, lock Sione Vuna and No.8 James McCarthy, who scored the visitor’s lone try.

Kariong Oval saw a great rugby battle in which Kariong just held on to record a 25 points to 24 victory. That scoreline alone indicated the closeness of the match. It was also a very tough affair with some great attack and very solid defence from both teams. Kariong started like a house on fire and had crossed for two tries within the opening few minutes. This was mainly due to some wonderful attacking rugby from their fullback Jake Hubbard who made 50 metre runs for both these tries. It was certainly the start Kariong wanted. However to Warnervale’s great credit they fought hard in the struggle to get back into the match from this 12 nil deficit – and they were successful. They responded with a try, and then another, to make the score, close to halftime, 12 points to 10 in Kariong’s favour. Kariong scored right on halftime to go to the break leading by 17 points to 10 at the break. It was certainly anyone’s match at that stage and both teams were looking threatening on occasions. Warnervale outscored Kariong in the second half by 14 points to 8 but they just could not get in front during this period. Kariong were always in front on the scoreboard but it was Warnervale who got closer and closer throughout those final exciting 40 minutes. They failed by the single point to catch Kariong and overtake the home side. It was a good match with both teams desperate for victory. Kariong were best served by fullback Jake Hubbard, who crossed for 3 tries, centre Lachlan Peruch, and flanker Nick Outram. Warnervale had some excellent performers but none were better than flanker Kye Haslam, lock Matt Willmott, five-eight Matthew Hurley and centre Ethan Sant.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. Wins were recorded by Terrigal, Avoca Beach and Kariong. Terrigal are proving the form team at present, while Kariong and Avoca Beach recorded their first wins of the season.

REPORT :
The Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with some excellent games of rugby played across the coast yesterday. In the Swietelsky Premier 1 matches, all games were quite close at halftime, although the winning teams did get away on the scoreboard as the second half progressed.

Hornsby demonstrated they are in for a successful season when they accounted for Warnervale by 22 points to 3 at Woongarrah Oval. The match was very evenly fought in the first half with both teams giving their all. Hornsby only went to the halftime break leading by 5 points to 3 so the match was certainly up for grabs at that stage. The home side would have been most hopeful of getting the win but it was not to be. Hornsby controlled much of the second half but they certainly did not have it all their own way. Hornsby posted a further 17 pointas in the final stanza to secure a welcome victory. Both teams proved they will be a threat this year and they will both get stronger as the year progresses. Best for Hornsby were flanker Oliver Jenkins, No.8 Tevita Faupola, who crossed for a try, and centre Tuihakavalu Ika. Warnervale never stopped for the entire 80 minutes. Best for them on the day were flankers Moleni Soane and Dean Crofskey, and centre Rickard Aholelie. Both teams will take a lot from the match as they move through the 2021 season.

Terrigal came from behind to defeat Kariong at The Haven Oval by 44 points to 29. This match was a much closer and tougher affair than the final score indicates. It was a real tussle right from the opening whistle and both teams were throwing everything at each other. Kariong led early by 7 points to 3, and even increased this lead through the first half. They led by 12 points to 10 just before halftime when a penalty goal to Terrigal saw the home side take the lead at the halftime break by 13 pointas to 12. It was proving a very good game of rugby. This match under lights had attracted a great crowd and they were certainly all being enthralled by the quality and closeness of the match. Kariong regained the lead early in the second half but Terrigal were soon to take over on the scoreboard with some excellent tries. With the scores locked at 20 points apiece midway through the second half, the match was there for the taking. However it was Terrigal who finished the stronger towards the end and secured the victory. In the end the result proved a reasonably comfortable win for the home side but it took them quite awhile to gain control. Terrigal only scored 5 tries to 4 so that factor alone demonstrated the closeness of the match. Best players for Terrigal were lock Will McDonald, winger Dan Sargeant and flanker Sam Kenny. However it was the overall excellent performance of the team that was the dominant influence on the result. Best players for Kariong were fullback Jake Hubbard, No.8 Logan Campbell and lock CJ Fonoti.

The Razorbacks proved too strong for Woy Woy at Woy Woy Oval running out victors by 39 points to 5. The Razorbacks went to the halftime break leading by 17 points to 0 and even at that stage seemed to be in control. However Woy Woy were making them struggle for every point. Woy Woy had some very effective players and they were certainly not making it easy for the visitors. The second half saw the Razorbacks go on with it and they were able to post a further 22 points in the second half. Best for the Razorbacks were No.8 Rob Peden, who crossed for 3 individual tries, lock Josefa Biu and flanker Jarrod Grange. Best performers for the home side were lock Philip Shaw, who crossed for their try, No.8 Jazper Doak-Stride, and centre Junior Stowers.

It should be noted that The Lakes had a win on forfeit in their Premier 1 clash with Gosford. Gosford have not entered a team for 2021 season.

Women’s 10’s rugby continued with three excellent matches. Wins to Warnervale, Gosford/Woy Woy, and Terrigal saw the competition commence in what should prove an exciting season.
