NSW PHYSICAL DISABILITY RUGBY LEAGUE

 

The 2015 footy season kicked off at Morry Breen Field on 7 February, 2015 with a NSW Disability Rugby League (NSWPDRL) match between Sydney Roosters and South Sydney. The match was very competitive and played in great spirit, with the Rabbitohs just getting home 32-22.


NSWPDRL is open to children and adults of both genders who suffer any form of physical disability, whether it be congenital conditions such as cerebral palsy, limb amputation or the manifestations of stroke. Players with varying degrees of disability take the field in a single match, and are graded according to their abilities. Certain players are protected by rule variations, cannot be tackled to the ground, but must stop and play the ball if touched by the defence. The more able can be fair game, and there was plenty of strong running and big hits on display in the match between the arch rivals at Roos headquarters.


The fixture is set to become an annual event to be played prior to Wyong’s first NSW Cup home trial each season.


Anyone with enquiries should call George Tonna on 0402773045, or jump on the website www.nswpdrl.com.au


Many thanks to Roos players Brady Barwick and Chris Brown who helped out on the day.

CCDRL INDIGENOUS ROUND LAUNCHED AT WBRC



 CCDRL, in conjunction with Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council and Bungree Aboriginal Services, last night launched the Indigenous Round of rugby league to promote reconciliation and the services available to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people through these community based organisations.

The Darkinjung LALC covers an area from Hawkesbury River in the south, to Catherine Hill Bay in the north, and east of the Watagan Mountains. The organisation is involved in enhancing community participation and wellbeing, culture, heritage and the preservation of the environment, as well as business and economic development for the benefit of local first Australian people.

Darkinjung CEO, Sean Gordon and Chairperson, Josh Toomey, spoke of the importance of the event as a starting point for reconciliation and better relations between first Australian peoples and the wider community, and acknowledged the contribution made by Ian Naden to the initiation and development of the project.

Bungree provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples residing on the Central Coast with high quality services focusing on health, welfare, transport and intensive family support programs.

Bungree Treasurer, Brody Naden, also acknowledged the efforts of his father, Ian, in devising the concept of the Indigenous Round and seeing it grow into an event unlike any other in NSW, and the pride and value it brings to the Central Coast and its indigenous people.

The concept started five years ago when the Roos were playing in the Newcastle competition, and involved only the Roos and Maitland clubs. The return of Wyong to the CCDRL competition saw the project relocate to this area, and resulted in Ourimbah Magpies, and subsequently Toukley Hawks, joining the project. Season 2015 sees a massive shift in focus, with all 12 Central Coast clubs involved in the promotion. Each 1st Grade team this Sunday will wear jerseys bearing aboriginal motifs specially designed for the occasion by local artists. The unique jerseys were unveiled at the launch at Wallarah Bay Recreation Club amid great enthusiasm and goodwill from clubs who have long histories of hard fought battles.

The Roos play The Entrance Tigers at EDSAAC Oval Bateau Bay this Sunday. A big day of rugby league commences with the Under 19’s at 9am, and concludes with the top of the table 1st Grade clash which kicks off at 2.30pm. Following 1st Grade, players and supporters will be heading to Bateau Bay Bowling Club, the most recent acquisition to the WRLCG stable.

MITCH WILLIAMS - BOUND FOR GLORY



New South Wales Rugby League - It’s been another sterling season for NSW Cup steward Mitch Williams in leading the Wyong Roos to the top of the competition.

However, it’s hardly a surprise for his coach Rip Taylor who knows the 2013 NSW Cup player of the year is ready to finally take the big step onto the NRL stage.

“I’d love to see it happen,” Taylor said. 

“It would be great to see him get an opportunity and I don’t think he would let anyone down. I know he wouldn’t let anyone down. We’re certainly privileged and happy to have him.”

Williams has been inspirational for the Roos this season, topping the league with a monster 647 tackles for the season while also recording the most line break assists with 19 and second most try assists with 17.

His consistency is a cornerstone of the premiership force that Wyong have formed into this season.

CHARITIES BENEFIT FROM OLD BOYS LUNCH


On 11 September Wyong Old Boys & Supporters held a Sportsman’s Lunch in the Showroom at Roos HQ. Hosted by Roos Radio personality, Sean Chaffer, guests were entertained by St George premiership winner and original Blues State of Origin player Graeme Wynn, Australian Schoolboy skipper Jack Cogger, Melbourne Cup winner Jamie Lovett, Knights premiership winner and NSW player Mark Hughes, and Kangaroo, Origin and Canterbury legend Mark O’Meley.

Approximately 150 people attended the function, which raised funds for the Mark Hughes Foundation and Donnica Clarke Foundation.

Brain cancer is the number one cause of cancer related death among Australian children, and the Mark Hughes Foundation has raised more than $2 million to assist research into this condition.

The Donnica Clarke Foundation has provided more than $150,000 in scholarships and monetary assistance to local sportspeople who otherwise struggle for financial support.

Jamie Lovett brought with him the Melbourne Cup won in 2014 by his horse Protectionist, and it was a rare opportunity for those in attendance to get close to the most valuable trophy in Australian sport.

ROOS SAVE WORST FOR LAST


Wyong Roos were overwhelmed by the circumstances of the competition decider and the weight of expectation, and in so being put together one of their worst performances of the year, when defeated 20-10 by Newcastle in the Grand Final of the VB NSW Cup. After entering the match as clear favourites, the Roos were nervous and hesitant. As their errors mounted and compounded, Wyong increasingly struggled to weather difficult periods of the match and lost sight of the things that had been the hallmarks of their charge through the finals series. The Knights were not much better, but came to Pirtek Stadium with a clear strategy to interrupt Wyong’s momentum and distract the green and gold from the job at hand, and those tactics proved remarkably successful.

Roos right centre, Nathan Smith, scored in the 10th minute, driving into some solid goal line defence, and just managing to ground the ball over the line. Smith had to temporarily leave the field after scoring, and his position on Wyong’s right edge was taken by Jack Siejka. Minutes later, Jonno Ford offloaded in traffic to Matt McIlwrick, who quickly shifted the ball to the right. Omar Slaimankhel joined the backline. Siejka signalled for a grubber into the ingoal. Slaimankhel obliged with a well weighted kick. Siejka was first to the ball, but whilst Referee Liam Nicholls initially thought it was a try, the video ref properly ruled that Siejka failed to ground the ball.

Newcastle responded with a try to Honeti Tua in the 16th minute. Wyong had sufficient numbers on their right side to meet the threat, but winger Brendan Elliot moved too far infield, providing space down the flank for the Knights to exploit. Newcastle’s Kerrod Holland crossed in the first set following the restart, after prop Wayne Sironen put Jaelen Feeney into a hole on the Roos right edge. The Knights were ahead 10-4 after 19 minutes. Wyong’s attack began to unravel, and they were unable to build any pressure. Suaia Matagi and Magnus Stromquist lost the ball in rapid succession close to the Newcastle line. Newcastle kicked to the Roos ingoal forcing the Roos to travel 100m for another scoring opportunity. Ford engineered an extra man on Wyong’s left side, but Nathan Stapleton inexplicably failed to catch the ball with the line open. Abraham Papalli offloaded to Stapleton inside Roos territory. Stapleton carved through the heart of the Knights defence, and passed to Slaimankhel as Knights fullback, Jake Mamo, moved to shut down the movement. Stapleton perhaps passed a moment early. Slaimankhel was watching Mamo rather than the ball. The pass went to ground and the chance was lost. Opportunities for the Roos too score in this match would prove rare, and difficult to manufacture.

Right on halftime Tua scored his second. The Knights left wing was released into the backfield. Elliot missed Tua on his first attempt, but came again and tackled Tua just inside the field of play. Unfortunately for Wyong, Elliot lost his grip on Tua, who then quickly promoted the ball across the line. The teams went to the break with Newcastle ahead 14-4.

Midway through the second half, Tua scored his third on the end of a short side raid engineered by George Ndaira from acting half. Ndaira kicked the sideline conversion to give the Knights a 20-4 lead. The Roos dominated the final 20 minutes of the match. Smith scored his second for the Roos, and with Cornish’s conversion, the deficit was reduced to 20-10. The Knights held on although being out on their feet. The clumsy and inept play that had plagued the Roos continued.

Tua was named Man of the Match. The Roos disappointment was palpable and written all over the faces of many of the players; not just because of the loss, but the manner in which they had acquitted themselves. Back in the dressing room, Coach Taylor tried to put the defeat into perspective;

“You are hurting now, that’s understandable…and for some of you the feeling may never altogether go away. But this is not life and death. If you really want to know what doing it tough is all about, just go down the road to Westmead. There are kids there with 6 months…12 months to live, with big smiles on their faces…whenever you think you are doing it tough, think about them and their families. You have only lost a game of football.”

COASTLINE ROOS 2016 AUSTRALIAN TOUR



Nadroga Development Officer, Suli Cakautabu, visited Roos HQ on the 8th November ahead of the Coastline Roos tour in early 2016. Preparations are well under way for the Fijians to come to Australia to train with Wyong Roos and participate in the Jason Annear Invitational 9’s Tournament. NSW Cup original and Fiji Bati rep, Eloni Vunakece, recently led a group of Wyong Roos staff on a sporting and cultural visit to the main island of Viti Levu to help promote the game. The Wyong Roos people held some training sessions and visited two schools during their brief but hectic time on the island, and they took the opportunity to deliver some clothing and equipment donated by Wyong Roos club, its staff and members.

“The other clubs (in Fiji) are now starting to learn (from the relationship between Wyong Roos and Coastline Roos)……we have shown to others what can be achieved….rugby league is now very big in Fiji….plenty of rugby union teams are changing to rugby league….there are places in Fiji that are just rugby league now…but the Union are very smart….I read in the Fiji Times on Tuesday that they are bringing the Super 15 game between the Crusaders and the Chiefs here next year. We really need that NSW Cup team to start in 2017…if that happens rugby league here will be huge” said Cakautabu.

COASTLINE ROOS TOUR


This was the first time all but two of the Coastline Roos players had left Fiji, and for them the experience will be long lasting, if not life changing. Having the opportunity to train with and compete against NSW Cup standard players, and participate in a professional program such as that offered by Coach Taylor and his staff is rare, even for local players. Staying at the Sport and Rec Centre at Pt Wolstoncroft, and living the life of a full time professional athlete, even for just a few hours, was no doubt something hard to imagine from village life in the islands. The enthusiasm and excitement of the Fijian boys was infectious and humbling.

Developing the game of rugby league is fundamental to our charter; helping those less fortunate than ourselves is in our DNA.

The generosity of Management in accommodating the Coastline Roos whilst on the Central Coast, and donating clothing to the players, officials and their families was a remarkable display of good will on behalf of the Club and its members.

Special mention needs to be made of Shane Selby, the NSW Cup yellow shirt, who has been the driving force behind the relationship. Shane and his family have opened their doors, and been selfless with their time and money, to make the relationship a success.

Fiji is a great breeding ground for the NRL, and it is inevitable some first class players will find their way from the Coastline Roos to the Wyong Roos in the very near future.

WYONG ROOS - CLUB STATEMENT


Wyong Roos Juniors provided an opportunity for 520 children to play rugby league in Season 2015. The Club will do so for a similar number this year. The work of many good people, the vast majority of whom are unpaid volunteers, forms the basis of that opportunity.

Regrettably, issues which are of concern to the broader community, from time to time, manifest in our game, and the incident on 13 March involving a young player who recently transferred to this Club, is one such event.

The incident has shocked and embarrassed the Board, management, members, sponsors and supporters of this Club; people with strong roots in the local community, whom have at various times, and in manifold ways, generously donated their time, energy and money to building our football program.

Perhaps the incident ought not have been so shocking. Perhaps we have been a little naïve to think the educative programs, codes of conduct, rules and regulations put in place in and around the game would prevent such an incident, when society itself has generally struggled to manage the very same issues.

The people who comprise this Club have been embarrassed by what happened on 13 March. That is an unfortunate but unsurprising fact. Wyong Roos devotes many resources toward providing a safe and enjoyable environment for children, support staff and match officials to participate in the game, but despite these best efforts and intentions, we were unable to prevent that situation.

Wyong Roos held a forum on 9 February, in part to help address growing concerns as to the deterioration of player and parent behaviour. Dr John Irvine (Child & Developmental Psychologist, Co-Founder of The R.E.A.D. Clinic), Rick Stone and Greg Nichols (NSWRL Welfare & Education Officer) spoke and/or gave presentations at the forum. Prior to the subject incident, the Club had in place a plan to present the NRL Better Choices programs to all players in the Under 14 – 17 age divisions. Wyong Roos has initiated its own Codes of Conduct for coaches, players and their families, in addition to those established by the governing bodies.

Wyong Roos is determined to be at the very centre and heart of its local community, and hopes its longstanding traditions built on respect for oneself, respect for others and personal responsibility are imprinted on the kids who play here. Although we live in a world where change is paradoxically constant, the core values of this Club remain immutable.

On the day 2015 Jack Gibson medallist, Boyd Cordner, tore his pectoral muscle, the Roosters not rested for the World Club Challenge or in NZ for the Auckland 9’s ripped into an opposed session against Wyong at Roos HQ.

On the other side of the ledger, Mitch Williams was again at his scheming best, Zane Tetevano revelled in the tough stuff, and Jackson Hill found some space and was solid in defence.

FALSE REPORT - DRUGS FOUND IN DRESSING ROOM AFTER NSW CUP GAME


Members and supporters are likely aware of reports appearing in the Fairfax press and Rugby League Week in the last few days regarding drugs being found in a dressing room at North Sydney Oval on 4 June 2016 following the NSW Cup (sic) match between North Sydney Bears and Wyong Roos.

The reports were factually inaccurate.

NSWRL Ground Manager, Bob Jones, found a small satchel containing vials of liquid inside the fence at North Sydney Oval following the conclusion of the ISP Round 12 match between North Sydney and Wyong.

Prior to Mr Jones finding that satchel, Wyong Roos Head Sports Trainer, Craig Davis, at the time inside the Wyong dressing room in the company of club physiotherapist, Mel Holt, was approached by a male person in overalls who appeared to be a private medic. That person asked Mr Davis whether a bag of drugs had been found on the sideline or the field during the ISP game. The drugs in question were of the type of legitimate medication used by health professionals in the treatment of injuries sustained by accident and trauma.

Subsequent to that conversation, Mr Davis was approached by another gentleman wearing identical overalls, also searching for a bag of drugs (legitimate medication). The second gentleman indicated to Mr Davis that the bag may be in the dressing room, which was used by the Titans prior to Wyong.

The Wyong dressing room was searched upon the departure of the players and staff, but no bag of drugs (legitimate medication) was located therein.

There were no medics on the sideline during the ISP match.

There were medics on the sideline during the NYC match.

Not difficult to join the dots. The professional medics engaged to oversee the NYC match had lost or misplaced a bag of legitimate medication ordinarily used during the course of their work.

The facts in this matter were readily verifiable by the most basic of enquiries. If Fairfax and Rugby League Week had made any reasonable attempt to verify the information received, this would not have been a story in the first place.

The Police have not contacted Wyong Roos regarding the drugs. No representative from NSWRL or the NRL Integrity Unit has contacted Wyong Roos regarding the drugs.

Neither Fairfax Media or Rugby League Week contacted Wyong Roos for comment before the articles were published.

Rugby League Week removed the article from its online magazine following a written request from Wyong Roos. However, no retraction, correction or apology has been provided.

ROOS RETAIN PAT BRIDGE MEMORIAL TROPHY



Pat Bridge was the Patron of Northern Lakes (in the Club’s original incarnation), and a Life Member of Wyong Leagues Club. Last Sunday both clubs battled through 80 minutes of 1st Grade CCDRL for the Memorial Trophy named in his honour. The Roos ran out victors 30-12, but not before the Warriors mounted a spirited fightback to win the second half 12-6. Pat’s son, Ian Bridge (Wyong Roos’ first Australian Schoolboy), was a proud fence sitter on his 60th birthday, enjoying the contest whilst having a foot in each camp. Ian made the post-match presentation of the trophy to Wyong captain, Alex Langbridge, commemorating Pat’s legacy and the generous contribution he made to both clubs.

PURCELL TWICE PICKED FOR AUSTRALIA



Being selected for an Australian representative sporting team is a remarkable achievement at any time. However, making the Australian team in two different sports in the same year is truly extraordinary.

Roos Junior, Jaron Purcell, following on from his selection in the Australian Schoolboys Under 15 Merit Team, has now been picked in the Australian Boys Under 16 Oztag team. Jaron and 27 team mates will attend a camp in Sydney over the weekend of 4-5 February, at the conclusion of which the squad will be trimmed to 18 players. Coach Adam Lennan will take charge of the team for the 2017 international program, to be announced in the very near future.

Congratulations Jaron from everyone at Roos HQ.

ROOS 1ST GRADE & UNDER 19's PRESENTED WITH PREMIERSHIP JACKETS



Wyong Roos Season 2016 Premiership winners were presented with jackets at an informal get together at Roos HQ on Wednesday night. Many of the boys were beforehand involved in the last Summer Squad session for the year. Good to see Club Chairman, Kevin Pearce, and his Vice, Bob Wells, with tongs in hand at the ensuing barbeque. The Presentation brought down the curtain on rugby league for the season, which was by any measure a very successful campaign for Wyong. Training for the Summer Squad will recommence on 4 January, and on 31 January for all other senior players. Anticipating the coming season is always exciting. Members and supporters can be guaranteed the Roos will be back in the new year, reinvigorated by the break, and keen for the competition to begin.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG



Mitch Williams - A Captains Blog - After a false start last year in which I suffered from a severe case of writer’s block, I have resumed my position at the desk, and invite you into the world that is the Wyong Roos senior squad. Throughout the season I’ll be sharing training details, game previews and reviews, as well as introducing you to some of the interesting characters that make up the squad; from rookies like U/19 star Aaron Heaven, to fan favourite and NSW cup veteran, Brock “Choc” Molan. I will also look to give you an insight into what life is like as a semi-professional Rugby League player, the ups and downs, and the pressures that come with sitting on the cusp of the NRL whilst juggling training, work and study.

I have been lucky enough to captain the mighty Wyong Roos since their move to the NSW Cup in 2013. As a kid who first played for the Roos as a 14 year old, to now captain the club in such an elite competition, is a role I take great pride in. I enjoy the challenge and the extra responsibility, as well as rating myself pretty highly in the coin toss department.

But enough about me, let’s talk Rugby League. 2017 will be the Roos 5th year competing in the NSW Cup competition, and 3rd year affiliated with the Sydney Roosters. Whilst the Central Coast seniors will once again compete in U/19’s, Ladies League Tag, Opens, Reserves and 1st grade. Following an outstanding season where we won the club championship, all sides made the finals and the U/19’s and 1st grade sides both lifted the trophy on grand final day, the club is again primed for a big season.

Training commenced on the 21st November, and after the meet and greet it was time to get down to business. It’s been great to see the development of players already, with the 10 U/19’s players pushing themselves hard and working on their game each week. The majority of the squad has remained quite similar, with only a few new additions. This time of year belongs to strength and conditioning coach, Bruce Gulliver, who in his prime was one of Australia’s premier 100m sprinters. Bruce is also one of the best characters I have met, and never short of a story. Whether it’s in the gym or out on the field, you’ll find Bruce with his whistle and stopwatch rallying the troops through countless sweat sessions. Amongst the lifting and running, we have been hard at work with our individual core skills and tackle technique drills, all under the watchful eyes of current “A” grade premiership winning coach, Tony Clarke, and NSW Cup assistant, and one of the sharpest minds in Rugby League, Ian Bourke. However most of the chat has been around the dreaded sand dune sessions. Rugby League training in summer at the beach sounds like it should be okay, but running up a soft sand hill has left all the boys wishing we were back at the oval.

Over the first block of training we’ve celebrated birthdays, welcomed new players, worked extremely hard, and even managed to sneak in some fun when Coach Taylor wasn’t looking. With the Christmas break upon us, I know all the boys and staff will be looking forward to a break, before ripping back into the 2017 season.

Go the Roos.
Mitch Williams.

The Block of Cheese has been with the Roos since we first entered the 2nd tier competition, and he is determined to become the most capped NSW Cup player in history before he hangs up the boots. Brock’s pre-Christmas training has been exemplary, and big things are again expected of him in Season 2017.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG 2



A Captain’s Blog. Welcome to the second edition of A Captain’s Blog. Plenty has happened since my debut article, and although I’ve received various offers from larger media outlets, I will be continuing to bring you direct Roos news from inside the squad. So sit back, relax and put on the kettle, as we hop back into all the latest information and weekly happenings that occur here in “the pouch” at Roos HQ. Let’s kick off from where we left things; the Christmas break as always came and went in the blink of an eye, and before we knew it, we were working off that Christmas ham on Morry Breen Oval as strength and conditioning coach Bruce Gulliver pushed us all to our limits in preparation for the season. It’s safe to say a few boys treated themselves over the Christmas break, and Bruce is taking great pleasure in getting them back in shape. I’ve been involved in a few pre-seasons now, and the month of January was as hard as any I’ve encountered. We ran sand dunes, time trials, shuttles, countless 200m sprints, and then stepped up the intensity in all our contact sessions. They say you have to train how you want to play, and with some of the contact Nick “The Jukebox” Lynn has produced on his team mates, I would hate to be his opposition. With what I have witnessed in 2017, all the squad are preparing themselves for a big year. The 28th January marked the annual Jason Annear Memorial 9’s tournament. Once again Wyong Roos fielded a side in the competition. The coaching staff had chosen a young side, with just a sprinkling of experienced players. The side was led by the big front rower from Goulburn, Jake Lewis, who did a great job leading the boys, and showing them how to get things done. Played in stifling conditions, the side won 3 of their 4 pool games, and advanced to the semi-finals before falling to the Newcastle All Blacks in a tight encounter. In what was a great hit out for the boys, it was pleasing to see some of the young boys really handle themselves on the field against men. Whilst all the boys performed strongly, a special mention to Kieren “Turtle” Gallagher, who took on more of a play making role than he is accustomed to, and did an outstanding job. Jake Lewis carted it forward all day, and was the glue in the middle. Young halves, Jesse Stephen and Aaron Heaven, did well to create space for the speed men out wide, with Kye Martin finishing off a great try. The less said about Kye’s attempted drop goal to convert, the better. The player who caught my eye the most was Isaiah Cooper-Tetevano. With the ability to go over or around a defender, Izzy was a constant handful for the defence, and is primed for a big 2017. Coach Tony Clarke was pleased with the performance from his squad given the heat and the scheduling of their fixtures. A quick shout out to Aaron Heaven, who unfortunately broke his collarbone after being hit late. Here’s to a speedy recovery mate. Time to get in the gym and build up those legs. The remaining members of the squad got an early morning touch up on the training field, before heading to Berkeley Vale to cheer on the boys. Last weekend saw us travel to Point Wolstoncroft Sport and Recreation Camp for a weekend of activities, goal setting and some bonding. After a good training session Friday, we headed to camp and got ourselves settled in our rooms. Each room sleeps 8-10, although I’m not quite sure the bunk beds were built for Rugby League players. I personally enjoyed the space in my double bed underneath the air conditioner. The camp was also the first chance for a few of the Sydney Roosters players to join the squad, and get to know the players and staff. After a feed, a few drinks and plenty of table tennis, it was lights out. Saturday morning started with bacon and eggs. Then we were off with the instructor to start our activities. We began with the rock climbing wall, and a few races up it between the teams. I think all the boys were happy they had a harness on and team mates to rely on. Although some teams didn’t show their climber much love, and left them hanging from the wall on occasions. Next up we ventured to the infamous wombat hole. I can’t say it is my favourite activity; any activity that requires you to crawl inside a bin is never going to end well. The wombat hole is a pitch black obstacle course, where you crawl between tyres around the track until the exit. It’s an extremely tight fit, and the objects hanging down from the roof do nothing to curb your fears. It’s a sand based maze, and whilst it only lasts a few minutes, can seem like an eternity as you struggle to find your bearings. I’d have to say that seeing the little bit of light that creeps through the exit door is one of the best feelings going, even if the Langbridge brothers thought it would be funny to lock me in at the exit. Full credit to the boys for all diving head first into the wombat hole and giving it a crack. We were lucky enough to have Newcastle Knights premiership winner Tony Butterfield as a guest speaker at lunch. “Butts” shared stories from his own career. He also provided some advice for players on the fringe of 1st grade, which all the boys appreciated. After lunch we headed to the high ropes course, where Bruce Gulliver showed us a few focusing techniques, which unfortunately for him, did nothing for his balance. We will be endeavouring to have the video of him on the website; it is well worth the watch. Roosters squad member, Lindsay Collins, and fellow prop, Jake Lewis, showed that front rowers can have plenty of balance as they tamed the course. But quote of the day went to Luke Sharpe, who said; “I am not scared of heights, just of falling!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. The afternoon consisted of swims in the lake, with a few boys showing their aerobatic moves off the wharf. Hopefully they’ll hang a ladder off the wharf, so our ever-shrinking Assistant Coach, Ian Bourke, doesn’t have to swim to shore each time. The night rolled on with some card games, table tennis and Justin Toomey-White singing a few classic tracks. But the highlight of the night was the wrestle between Nathan Clarke and Matt Ikuvalu. The atmosphere in the room was electric, and had far more entertainment than the Mundine-Green fight the night before. Although Nathan’s Dad had trained him well, it was Matt who came up with the submission to remain the No.1 wrestler at the Wyong Roos. In what I believe is already a very tight group, the effort from the newer members of the squad was great to see, and I hope they continue to buy into what it is to be a Wyong Roo. This weekend sees our first trial game against last year’s champions, the Illawarra Cutters, down south at WIN Stadium. The game will be before the Dragons NRL trial, and is a great opportunity for all the players, but especially the younger guys to get a taste of what this competition offers. I know all the boys are pumped for the first hit out, and maybe to do some more ball work instead of conditioning with Bruce. Heads up boys, the fun with Bruce isn’t over yet. This year Wyong Roos is looking to step up its social media game. Keep your eye out for the player profiles, which will give you a chance to get to know a little bit more information about your favourite Roos players.

Go the Roos.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG 3



A Captain’s Blog Part 3 Welcome back Rugby League fans, Wyong Roos supporters and those folk that love a good piece of literature to finish off their working day. What a week it has been here at Roos HQ. As the season draws closer, it has been heads down and tails up as players and staff alike prepare for the year ahead.

My week kicked off like any other, with my job as a Rugby League Development Officer and training consuming most of my time. That all changed mid-Thursday, when Coach Rip Taylor informed me that I would be heading to Mackay with the Sydney Roosters to play in the NRL trial against the North Queensland Cowboys. I don’t really like talking about myself (I’m sure a few of the boys and my partner would disagree), but I’ll give it a shot. For a kid that grew up supporting the Sydney Roosters, and then having spent the last 10 years actively chasing the NRL dream, this was pretty close, and I couldn’t wait to pull on the jersey.

After a short training session in Sydney on Friday, we flew via Brisbane to Mackay, for the overnight stay before the game Saturday night. Game day seemed to drag on forever, as I eagerly awaited the 7pm kick off. After a team walk, a few meals and a nap, it was time for the short bus trip to the stadium. I had been feeling relaxed and confident until I arrived at the oval, and saw the thousands already in attendance. The occasion slapped me square in the face. I’m not accustomed to fans, or anyone for that matter, greeting me off the team bus.

I had been told that they love their Rugby League in Mackay, and the 10,000 supporters that sold the ground out certainly added to what was a night I will never forget. Whilst dodging the extreme heat in Sydney, the humidity in Mackay was going to test all the players, in what was for many their first hit out. With the Cowboys fielding an extremely strong side, I knew that I needed to be up for the challenge, and hoped all the work that had gone into my pre-season with my team mates at Wyong Roos would hold me in good stead.

The game flew by in a blur of tackling, running and catching my breath. Whilst I would have loved to have had some more attacking opportunities, I was happy with how I defended and my passing, and despite the last minute field goal to see us lose 11-10, no one was wiping the smile off my face at full time. A few things made this game even more special for me; I was lucky enough to have the big man, Eloni Vunakece, beside me. I’ve now been playing with Lonz for 5 years, and to see such a familiar face, made me feel much more comfortable. But the highlight of the night for me was to see my Mum and my partner, Kendal, in the crowd. Both went to great lengths on short notice to be at the game, but that was no surprise to me as each has shown countless times they would move mountains to support me. They have seen the struggles and highlights of my career, and seeing them after the game and getting to share that moment with them was incredible. I will always be so grateful for how much they have done for me.

So many people wished me well. I just want to say thanks to my Roos team mates and coaching staff for helping me be in the position to play that game.

I wasn’t the only one who played a game on Saturday night, with the Wyong Roos boys making the long bus trip down the south coast to take on the Illawarra Cutters at WIN Stadium. Sydney’s heat was in full effect, but the players were cooled off by the sea breeze at the perfectly located stadium. The boys got the season off to a great start with a 38-26 victory, in a game where Rip said his experienced players really led from the front. Rip made special mention of Jake Lewis, Brock Molan and Alex Langbridge, who all stepped up and showed the other boys what it takes at this level. These three are part of the Roos leadership group, and they continue to improve and grow as players and leaders. The player that caught Coach Taylor’s eye the most though, was Dan Langbridge. Starting in the halves, Dan had a superb all round game and showed his ability at a higher level against good opposition. Many of our U/19 Premiership winning side also got their first taste of footy at this level, and from all reports, handled themselves extremely well. Even though it was only a trial, it’s great to get that winning feeling around the Club.

This week we head to the beautiful Central Coast Stadium for our final hit out before the season proper. We will be taking on the newly formed Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles, who will be playing as Manly’s feeder side in the Intrust Super Premiership this season. Both teams have named strong sides, in what should be a great game to gauge where we are at before the season.

Go the Roos - Mitch Williams.

ROOS CUT ABOVE THE CUTTERS


Wyong Roos were just a little too good for the ISP reigning premiers in Saturday’s trial at WIN Stadium. The trial was played over three 25 minute periods. A nice sea breeze and some cloud cover combined for tolerable conditions at the 5.45pm kick off time. The game was a genuine trial for both clubs, with many regulars missing from each line-up. However, the Cutters did boast several players with NRL experience. Wyong led 18-8 at the end of the first period, after the locals opened the scoring. Kieren Gallagher scored twice in the second period to push the Roos to a 26-20 lead at the second break, with Roosters prop Shaq Mitchell and fullback Luke Sharpe crossing for Wyong in the final period to lift the visitors to a 38-26 win. Seven of last season’s Under 19’s saw some paddock time, and without exception, acquitted themselves well despite the opposition and circumstances. Five of that group are still eligible to play age competition in the CCDRL. Jake Lewis and Nathan Clarke were strong up front for the Roos. Matt Ikuvalu was effective each time he carried the ball. Kauri Aupouri injected plenty of energy into the green and gold attack. Izzy Cooper-Tetevano rattled a few in defence. Best on ground was Dan Langbridge, guiding his team around the park with authority and composure. Assistant Coach Tony Clarke was pleased with the effort; “The good thing was that the senior players demanded a certain standard of play from the young blokes, and they met that standard. Those Under 19’s must ensure they build from here and do not slip into any bad habits when they return to age footy.” Next Saturday Wyong faces Manly at Central Coast Stadium on a day when the Sydney Roosters NYC and NRL squads also take on the Sea Eagles. Footy is back!

ROOS RETURN TO TRAINING



By any measure Wyong Roos enjoyed a very successful Season 2016, with Premierships in 1st Grade and Under 19’s, making the finals series in the other four senior grades, and securing the CCDRL Club Championship for the umpteenth time. However, all that counts for little as the new season approaches.

Reserve Grade, Open Age and the Under 19’s have recommenced training under the watchful eye of Strength & Conditioning Co-Ordinator, Stuart Lofts.

The Under 17’s will regularly train with their counterparts in grade this year, and have already commenced a weights program in the gym with Sarah Dimech.

ROOS GIVE BLOOD


The Roos spill some blood from time to time on the footy field, but on 27 February a contingent of players and staff donated at the Red Cross mobile blood bank at Wyong RSL. The statistics are sobering; one in three Australians will require a blood transfusion during their lifetime, but only one in thirty will donate. The Roos lay down the challenge to other CCDRL clubs to commence donating. Let’s see what the local football community can do.

The Woy Woy club is hosting an Old Boys function on the day, and a large crowd is expected.

The Roosters will no doubt be intent on revenging the loss of both premierships, as well as being very keen to start the new season on a positive note against the reigning Club Champions. There were some fireworks in 1st Grade each time the teams met last year, and there is likely to be little difference this time around.

The day will kick off with Ladies League Tag at 11.30am, and 1st Grade will take the field at 5.00pm.

WYONG ROOS ISP CAMP



Wyong Roos Summer Squad attended its annual pre-season camp at Pt Wolstoncroft last weekend (3-5 February). Squad members and staff participated in some team building exercises including rock climbing, the high ropes challenge and dreaded Wombat Hole.

ARL Premiership winner with the Newcastle Knights, and former President of the Rugby League Professionals’ Association, Tony Butterfield, spoke to the Roos about his life in rugby league, his battles on behalf of players and the issues now facing young men involved in the game.

The weekend camp was a timely opportunity for the staff and players to galvanise for the season ahead.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG 4



Finally it’s here! Round 1. After slogging it out for more than three months on the training paddock, lifting everything in sight in the gym and running up every sand hill Rip could find, this Saturday we kick off the season with a massive clash against the Wests Tigers @ Morry Breen Oval. We have worked exceptionally hard all pre-season. Both players and staff are excited for the season ahead.

Preparation for our season opener has been spot on, but with the one sour note; the trial loss to the newly formed Manly Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles a fortnight ago. It was disappointing to perform at a level far below our expectations, but we have been working hard on some key areas to tighten our defence and adjust a few structures we have in place. The Manly trial also saw the first crop of Sydney Roosters players join the Wyong Roos boys, and these new combinations will take time as we get to know each player’s skill set.

Round 1 is always filled with anticipation and excitement as we venture somewhat into the unknown. Over the pre-season we’ve spoken about our poor home record in 2016; victorious on only three occasions. This season we will endeavour to make our home ground a fortress of sorts, where opposition sides will hate to come. That starts on Saturday against the Tigers. We failed to beat them in three encounters last year, and were ultimately knocked out of the competition courtesy of our third loss to the Tigers in the second week of the finals series.

Whilst both teams have undergone changes in the off season, the Tigers’ halves, Jack Littlejohn and Justin Hunt remain from last season. Both scored tries in that semi-final. Jack and Justin have NRL experience, and for us to win this game, shutting these players down will be of the highest importance. The battle between them and our halves, Jayden Nikorima and Mitch Cornish, will be a real feature of this match. Given the weather forecast, and the already wet conditions, this game shapes up as a real forwards battle between two strong packs eager to gain the upper hand early on. The game is often won in the middle of the field, particularly around the ruck in wet conditions. Ball handling will be a priority for both sides.

We have named a strong line up for Saturday, capable of performing strongly and getting our season off to the best possible start. Unfortunately, the game isn’t played on paper. We will need to be at our best every week. I believe this year’s competition will be the strongest so far. I want to make a special mention of the Wyong Roos boys who have been named in the Round 1 squad; it is a massive achievement, and reward for how hard you have worked to put yourself in this position.

Friday night’s training session will be followed by a team dinner. I know all the boys can’t wait to play. I for one can’t wait to lead the boys out, and I would love to see a big crowd at the game. With free entry and a 3pm Saturday kick off, it should be a great afternoon of rugby league.

Go the Roos - Mitch Williams.

ROOS IN COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS


The SLE Worldwide Australia Under 16 & 18 Country Championships get underway this Saturday (4 March), with Wyong juniors prominent in both Central Coast Roosters squads. The local boys face East Coast Dolphins at Geoff King Oval Coffs Harbour in a Northern Pool Round 1 double header, with their Newcastle counterparts playing Greater Northern at the same venue.

Wyong’s Jack Riches will captain the Under 16 team from the second row, and his Roo team mate, halfback Wade Catt, has the job of guiding them around the park.

There are five Roos in the Under 18 squad. Tyson Vanderwolf, Jayden Marsh and Lachlan Hanneghan are each in Coach Michael Ahearn’s starting line-up, whilst both Ryan Dowman and Zak Russell have critical roles to play from the interchange bench.

The Under 16’s kick off at 10am and the Under 18’s at 11.20am.

Round 1 will be completed on Sunday 5 March when the Southern Pool double headers between Western Roos and Greater Southern Stingrays, and Bidgee Bulls and Southern Redbacks are played at Seiffert Oval Queanbeyan.

Good luck to all the players and officials involved. Congratulations to the Wyong boys on an outstanding achievement.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG 5



A Captain’s Blog – Part V

Welcome back Roos fans.

How good is it having the footy back! After 6 months of me and the missus watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians reruns, and Married At First Sight (which is a great show), I have taken back control of the remote, and with the 24 hour footy channel in full swing, I’ve tossed out the batteries  and now spend my evenings with Matty Johns and the gang. Two weeks in and two very different wins. Round 1 saw us take the field in wet and windy conditions against a Wests Tigers side that we had failed to beat the season prior. We dominated possession and field position from the kick off, and the 12-0 half time score was a great stepping stone for us leading into the second half. We managed to run in numerous tries in the second half, with some slick ball handling despite the conditions. Dale Copley, in his first game in a Roos jersey, showed all his class scoring a hat trick of tries running off some sublime Mitch Cornish passes and kicks. If the point scoring maestro, Josh Mantellato, brought his kicking boots, the 42-0 score line could have been even larger. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt however, due to the conditions. On a day dominated by the forwards, Zane Tetevano led from the front and continued his sensational form of 2016. An injury in the Roosters top 17 then gave Zane the opportunity to shine on the biggest stage, and from the performance he put in last Thursday night, Roos supporters might be waiting a while to see him back in the green and gold. Having known Zane for over 5 years, and seeing how hard he has worked to get back to the NRL, it was very pleasing to see him perform so well. I know all the players and staff here at Wyong couldn’t have been happier for him. The other big positive from our game was the players got to see Rip crack a smile when we (or at least those few who knew it) belted out the team song. After the high of the shutout victory from Round 1, the toughest task was always going to be to back up that performance. We headed to Newcastle to play a side that were keen to bounce back from a tough loss to the New Zealand Warriors. Game day greeted us with hot sunny conditions, a fast track and a few new hair dos for the TV game.  After we scored an early try through Paul Carter, the game became a tit for tat battle as we leaked our first points of the season. A first half double to the ever elusive Luke Sharpe saw us head to oranges 18-12 up. The second half was dominated by errors and penalties, as we continually invited Newcastle to attack our try line. Two terrific team tries, respectively finished by Josh Mantellato and Joseph Manu, was enough to see us hold on to a 26-18 win.

Whilst we weren’t at our best and have plenty of work to do, it is only Round 2, and we remain undefeated in 2017. The real highlight of the day was the performance of Luke Sharpe, who easily collected the Players’ Player Award; two tries, a try assist, cover tackles and plenty of metres with the ball. Seeing how hard Luke has worked in the pre-season, for him to show everyone on Saturday what we see every session, was as satisfying for us as I’m sure it must have been for him. Luke is blessed with all the speed and skill you could imagine, and anyone who can side step a bloke in a phone booth is always going to cause the defence a headache. I’m expecting a massive season for him this year, and I’m certain a lot of good Rugby League judges will know the name Luke Sharpe by the end of 2017.

The Wyong Roos Central Coast sides kicked off with their first trial games on the weekend, hosting The Entrance Tigers. By all reports it was a great hit out for those involved, and 1st Grade Coach, Tony Clarke, made special mention of the young Roos who played strongly on debut.

This weekend we face Canterbury Bulldogs at Morry Breen Field, in what should be a massive clash for both sides. Given the wet conditions and the forecast for more rain, the emphasis this week has been on ball control and field position. With the new beer garden open and easy access to the Club’s food and beverages, it’d be hard to find a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Go the Roos. - Mitch Williams.

TURTLE MIGRATES NORTH



Wyong’s favourite vegan, Kieren “Turtle” Gallagher, has played his last game for the Roos for the foreseeable future, after securing employment in Queensland and making that difficult decision to head north. Kieren completed a degree in podiatry at the University of Newcastle in 2016, and after exhaustive attempts to obtain work in that field in the local area, has found a position with a Gold Coast based practise. Kieren is a Wyong Junior and has spent almost 20 years with the Club. The popular fullback/winger has represented the Roos in the NSW Cup and was a member of the first Wyong team to taste victory in that competition. Throughout his career in the green and gold, Kieren has been a prolific try scorer, and is a dual 1st Grade Premiership winner having played critical roles in both the 2014 and 2016 campaigns. Perhaps “Turtle” will not retire from the game just yet, and we might get to see him go around for Burleigh Bears in the Intrust Super Cup. The Board, Management, staff and players wish Kieren the best of luck in this new phase of his life.

ROOS IN WEEKEND REP TEAMS


 Wyong Roos has a total of fifteen players named in Central Coast Roosters U16 and U18 representative squads this weekend.

The Harold Matts and S G Ball face Canberra at Seiffert Oval Queanbeyan on Saturday 18 March, with the Matts kicking off at 12.30pm and the Ball at 2.00pm.

Wyong players Cody Boyle, Harry Packham, Adam Riding and Aaron Commins have all been included in the travelling squad. The CC Roosters are currently sitting atop the table (third on percentages), and are yet to taste defeat in Season 2017.

Tallis Angianga, Tyson james, Ray Kaifa and Jake O’Meley are part of the Ball travelling squad, but Jake looks to be a couple of weeks off playing as he recovers from an ankle injury. The team lost their first match for the season last weekend and will be keen to make amends.

If the weather permits these matches to proceed, the local boys will be in for a tough time against Canberra on their home turf.

Round 3 of the SLE Worldwide Australia Under 16 and Under 18 Country Championships is scheduled for Saturday as well, with both Central Coast teams facing Newcastle Rebels at Cessnock Sports Ground. The Under 16’s kick off at 12 noon and the Under 18’s at 1.20pm.

ISP NSW - ROOS MAKE IT THREE STRAIGHT



Wyong Roos defeated Canterbury Bulldogs 24-6 at Morry Breen Field last Saturday for their third victory in as many matches in the Intrust Super Premiership competition. Benefitting from four consecutive penalties in the opening period (seven before Canterbury had received its second), the methodical Roos forced the ‘Dogs to expend plenty of energy in defence, a fact which would translate into points later in the game. Paul Carter scored a relatively simple try from short range. The Canterbury defence was tiring, but by contrast, Wyong comfortably defended four consecutive sets between the 15th and 23rd minutes to keep its line intact. The teams went to the break with the Roos ahead 6-0. Poasa Faamausili crossed twice early in the second period; the first off an inside ball from halfback Mitch Cornish, and the second from a signature Mitch Williams raid from acting half, and with Josh Mantellato nailing the conversions, the game was beyond the visitors at 18-0. The Bulldogs responded with a try in the 27th minute to fullback Josh Bergamin, finishing a chain of passes initiated by backrower Rhyse Martin and right centre Jerri Leasi close to the ruck. Brock Gray touched down for the Roos in the 78th minute, hitting space behind the defensive line which had advanced past the ball after Cornish and halves partner, Jayden Nikorima, combined on his inside. The win keeps Wyong in equal top place (second on percentages behind Mounties). Next Saturday the Roos face Penrith at Pepper Stadium in what promises to be Wyong’s sternest test to date. Kick off is at 3.00pm.

ROOS TOO STRONG FOR KNIGHTS IN NEWCASTLE


Wyong were a little too good for Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday, winning that Round 2 ISP clash 26-18 in very warm conditions. The Roos led 18-12 at halftime, with fullback Luke Sharpe scoring twice, and always seemed in control of the game. Handling errors coupled with a lack of urgency on the visitors’ part invited the Knights back into the match, but at this stage of their season, the Newcastle team did not quite have the wherewithal to act on that invitation. The green and gold will need to improve on that performance if they hope to trouble the best in the competition. After two rounds the Roos remain atop the ladder, and on Saturday face Canterbury Bulldogs at Morry Breen Field. The ‘Dogs are yet to have their first win in Season 2017. Kick off is at 3.00pm.

SYDNEY ROOSTERS EASTER HOLIDAY CAMP AT ROOS HQ

 

Sydney Roosters are holding footy camps at Roos HQ during the Easter School Holidays.

The Footy Fever Camp for kids aged 6-12 years will be held on Thursday 20 April.

The Golden Boot Camp for those aged 12-18 years who might be a bit more serious about their game will be held on Friday 21 April.

There will be top class coaches, Roosters personalities, prizes and a whole lot more, and at a cost of $60 (which includes Sydney Roosters Central Coast membership and two tickets to the 1 July clash between the Roosters and the Sharks at Central Coast Stadium) this represents great value.

Remember the Roos face Newtown Jets as part of the undercard at CCS on 1 July, so if you were intending catching that ISP match and supporting the Roos, having a child attend the camp and collecting two free tickets represents even better value!

TIGERS LEFT TO LICK WOUNDS AFTER MORRY BREEN HAMMERING


The only thing nastier than the weather at Morry Breen Field on Saturday was the merciless attitude of the Roos as they dismembered Wests Tigers to the tune of 42-0. Wyong scored inside the first minute after recovering Josh Mantellato’s towering kick off.  Further first half tries to Chris Smith and Jayden Nikorima pushed the Roos out to a 12-0 lead at the break, and with a powerful southerly at the backs of the home team in the second period, it was going to be a difficult assignment for the Tigers to get back into the match.  Six second half tries, including a trifecta to centre Dale Copley, and three Mantellato conversions completed the Round 1 shut out.

SYDNEY ROOSTER HOLIDAY CLINIC



Sydney Roosters held a rugby league clinic for Under 6 – 12 players at Roos HQ on 20 April. Legends Anthony Minichiello and Mark O’Meley were joined by Jayden Nikorima, John Tuivasa-Sheck and Mitch Williams in putting the juniors through their paces. The Under 12 – 18 age groups get their turn on 21 April, when the coaching staff will likely be joined by another legend, Brad Fittler. There were plenty of drills and games on offer to enhance those footy skills, as well as prizes, Roosters merch and a whole lot of fun to make it a great day out for all.

BOURKE GETS WORLD CUP GIG


Wyong Roos ISP Asst. Coach, Ian Bourke, has been appointed Head Coach of the Cook Island’s Women’s Rugby League Team for the World Cup to be played in Australia in November. Bourke is well regarded at Roos HQ for having one of the most astute football brains in the business and with Ian at the helm, the Kukis can be guaranteed of a first class preparation for their campaign.

Cook Islands face Australia in the first of their pool games at Southern Cross Stadium (Shark Park) on 16 November, followed by New Zealand and England at the same venue on 19 & 22 November.

Congratulations Bubba from the Board and Management.

ROOS CHASING COMETS


Media personality and former NRL player, Jason Stevens, is producing a feature film Chasing Comets,  currently in production. Wyong Roos match against Newtown Jets at Henson Park on 22 April will form part of the background footage for the film. From footy stars to movie stars. Who would have thought? It is always a great day at Henson Park, and with the possibility of appearing in the odd crowd scene, why not come along to Marrickville and cheer on the mighty green and gold. Word is we might just be the bad guys in this movie. There is nothing like playing against type.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG PART VI



Six weeks in and the Wyong Roos ISP side sit in 2nd place (behind the unbeaten New Zealand Warriors), with 5 wins and 1 forgettable loss to Penrith. Whilst I would love to be undefeated at this stage, I believe we have made a great start to the season and as a team have been continually improving.

Last Saturday saw us defeat Wentworthville 30-12 at Morry Breen Field in what was an all-round solid effort. A 12-6 half time advantage was stretched to 30-6, before a late try to the visitors. Chris Centrone backed up his previous weeks scoring feats with a double, whilst Jayden Nikormima showed all his class in orchestrating the victory. Against a big, mobile pack, I thought our forwards  did a sensational job of matching Wentworthville in the opening exchanges, and then gaining the ascendency for the remainder of the game. Whilst at times we were wasteful with the ball, and blew a few chances to post more points, the defensive display was once again the highlight; even with those two lapses in concentration which saw us concede two relatively soft tries. It was also pleasing to see a few more of the boys have learned the team song after our 5th victory.


This Thursday sees us take on the North Sydney Bears at the picturesque North Sydney Oval under lights at 6:30pm. Whilst the short turn around will test the body, the thought of spending the weekend on the couch eating Easter eggs will get the boys through. North Sydney sits on the same points as us and have been very impressive this season. If we are a chance to snatch the two competition points on Thursday night, we will need to be at our very best and need to match the Bears’ enthusiasm from the outset.

The Central Coast competition is now two weeks into the season, and already the Wyong Roos 1st Grade side has shown just how difficult they will be to beat this year with two very strong victories. This side has enormous talent, and will be looking to make it three in a row when they take on The Entrance in a blockbuster Good Friday game at EDSACC Oval. Already this season three players from last years U/19’s premiership winning side have made their 1st grade debuts, whilst several others are also getting a taste of grade football after doing the pre-season with the ISP side.  The majority of these boys can still feature in the U/19’s, but to see the progress and development from playing against men each week has been a real highlight for the playing group and staff.

Sunday also marked the opening of the Terry Wand Beer Garden, which is a great spot named after a great man. With the club access just a short stair climb away, I’m sure it will be getting plenty of use over the coming months. The naming of the Beer Garden is in recognition of a man who has done so much for this Club.

Last week we said goodbye to Club and fan favourite, Kieren Gallagher, who has found work on the Gold Coast after finishing his podiatry degree. Turtle (as he is affectionately known) has spent close to two decades in the green and gold, and in his time with the Club has won two 1st Grade Premierships and made his NSW Cup debut. Turtle’s freakish try scoring ability and dancing will be missed, but his stories about being a vegan will not. From everyone at the Wyong Roos we wish him all the best.

Hopefully the Easter Bunny will deliver wins for all the Wyong Roos sides this week and maybe even a few eggs. Happy Easter and go the Roos.

Mitch Williams.

FOUR ROOS IN NSW RESIDENTS REP TEAM


Four members of the Wyong Roos ISP squad have been selected in the NSW Residents Representative team to face their Queensland counterparts on Sunday 7 May. The Roos exemplary early season form, no doubt, has played a part in Chris Centrone, Jayden Nikorima, Mitch Cornish and Lindsay Collins each getting the call up. Centrone was excited with his selection;

“Obviously, I am pretty rapped…it was a short term goal from the start of the year…it was something I’d hoped for but never quite believed would happen. Much of the credit must go to my team mates (at Wyong). I’ve never been in a team that has gelled this quickly (and one where) everyone just wants to play good footy. When Rip announced my name in the dressing room, you could have dropped me.”

The squad has a very full week leading into Sunday’s match at Langlands Park Greenslopes (Brisbane). Medicals were held 1 May. The squad has gym, field and recovery sessions today (2 May), as well as team photos. There is another field session on 3 May and lunch at Wenty Leagues Club, before the flight to Queensland that evening. The squad trains at the match venue on Thursday, has a bit of a lay day on Friday, and a Captain’s run on Saturday.

Centrone will start on the wing. Cornish and Nikorima are the starting halves, and Collins will come from the bench. The experienced Cornish will also captain the side.

Kick off is at 1.40pm and the match is live and free on Channel 9.

KAURI AUPOURI NAMED IN UNDER 23 COUNTRY TEAM



Despite Central Coast Roosters early exit from this year’s Country Championships, Roos half, Kauri Aupouri, has been selected in the Country Under 23 team to play both Tonga and Scotland in the lead up to this year’s World Cup. Kauri scored a try and kicked four goals in the Coast’s big 68-8 win over Greater Northern Tigers, but was then unavailable for the semi-final against Newcastle Rebels due to ISP commitments. Kauri obviously impressed selectors, after gaining a berth in the bush’s premier representative team on the strength of one championship match. Kauri’s strong form throughout Seasons 2016 and 2017 and growing reputation were no doubt telling factors in the minds of the Country selectors. Congratulations Kauri from everyone at Roos HQ, and may this be a springboard to greater things in rugby league.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG PART VII



Mitch Williams - A Captains Blog - Part VII 

Nothing makes me happier than seeing both the ISP and ‘A’ Grade sides sitting on top of their respective competitions. With only one loss for each in 2017, both squads have put themselves in a great position for the remainder of the year. Unfortunately, no one gives out premiership trophies in June, so the hard work continues. On a personal note the game against Wentworthville was my second game back after over a month on the sideline with a torn hamstring. It was an incredibly frustrating time, and I couldn’t be happier to be back playing with the boys.

As we reach the halfway mark of the competition, I wanted to look back on the season so far and assess how the club is fairing across all the grades. The last month of Rugby League has seen some great encounters and some standout performances.

During this time, several Wyong Roos players have been chosen in representative teams. Under the guidance of Rip Taylor and Ian Bourke, Mitch Cornish, Jayden Nikorima, Lindsay Collins and Chris Centrone were all part of the NSW Residents side which went down to their Queensland counterparts. Selection in the squad was a great reward for their individual performances to begin the season. Special mention to Chris, who was one of only three players chosen not currently involved in an NRL system. Chris is also the equal leading try scorer in the competition, and is playing some unbelievable football of late.

With the U/23’s Central Coast Roosters side also being picked, we had Dan Langbridge, Kauri Aupouri, Shaq Mitchell, Brady Barwick and Isaiah Cooper-Tetevano gain selection. The Coast side won their first-round match against Greater Northern Tigers, before going down to Newcastle a week later. Special congratulations to Dan Langbridge, who skippered the side in their final game, and to Kauri Aupouri who was selected in the NSW Country side to compete against Tonga and Scotland later in the season. Claire Reed and Holly Gibbons were selected in the Central Coast Roosters Ladies League Tag squad, and after three hard fought games, were crowned Country Champions. Claire was named Player of the Match in the Final against Illawarra. Having so many players selected for these sides is testament, not only to the hard work of the players, but the coaching staff as well.

During the last month, we have seen several Wyong Juniors make their 1st grade debuts. Including these young men in the ISP pre-season squad, and seeing them develop and their hard work rewarded, has left everyone excited about the future. Six players from last year’s U/19’s Grand Final winning side have already featured in the top grade, and all have performed well. Kye Martin, in particular, has played in every top-grade game to date, and has proven to be one of the finds of the season. An outside back who makes scoring tries look very easy, Kye already has my vote for Rookie of the Year.

In weekend action, it was a top of the table clash for the ‘A’ Grade side when they took on Erina at the Eagles’ nest, and came away with a hard fought two competition points. After the Roos set up a big half time lead, Erina clawed their way back into the game, before a try to Daniel “Latino Heat” Navarro, sealed the victory for the Roos. The Paul Gallen of the Central Coast competition, Brock Molan, continued his spectacular start to the season with yet another Players’ Player award, and Mitch Nakhoul bagged himself four tries.

The ISP NSW side, by way of contrast, produced possibly their worst first half of football this year, only to storm home late and claim victory against Wentworthville. Heading into the sheds 22-6 down at the break, Coach Taylor reached into his big bag of half time speeches and reminded us that it wasn’t a game of touch football. Thankfully the boys came out with the energy and intent required to claim the win and stay atop the ladder for another week.

With CCDRL scheduling a bye round for the long weekend, the ISP team will be the lone Roos side playing when they head to Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday to face Wests Tigers in what promises to be an entertaining clash.

Seeing all the Wyong Roos teams in the top 5 at the halfway point of the year puts the Club in great stead for a big finish to Season 2017. I know everyone at the Roos HQ will be working twice as hard to get the desired results.

In off field news, the Club recently held an “ugly” shirt night. Players, partners and friends alike wore some of the worst shirts I’ve ever seen, and danced the night away in the Showroom after a clean sweep of results against Northern Lakes and Blacktown Workers. Without my knowledge, or that of my house mate Brock Molan, my partner had taken the most unflattering action shot imaginable of Brock and myself and reproduced it on her shirt. In what was an obviously rigged result, she won the competition for ugliest shirt. It was a great night for all involved, and to my girlfriend, revenge will be coming.

Enjoy the long weekend Roos fans.

Mitch Williams.

JARON PURCELL TO CAPTAIN STATE IN UNDER 16 ORIGIN


Wyong Roos Jaron Purcell has been named Captain of New South Wales for the Under 16 Origin clash with Queensland on 12 July. Jaron’s leadership credentials are well established. Jaron skippers Wyong Under 16/1’s, and earlier in the season led Newcastle Knights to win the Harold Matthews Cup.

NSW Coach Brad Fittler writes of Jaron;

“He’s our captain, he won the game for the Knights in the Grand Final by scoring a try in extra time, he just doesn’t stop and he keeps going and going and going, much like our assistant coach Danny Buderus. He has a simple attitude, anything you tell him to do he does, and he pushes everyone hard so I’ve been really happy with how he has gone this week.”

The Origin match at Suncorp will be the biggest to date of Jaron’s career, but he possesses the skills, heart and temperament to get the job done. Wyong Roos could not be prouder.

THREE ROOS IN ISP TEAM OF THE YEAR


The contributions of Luke Sharpe, Matt Ikuvalu and Eloni Vunakece to the Roos ISP Minor Premiership campaign have been recognised by the selection of each in the Team of the Year.

Luke is a Wyong Junior who returned to the Club in Season 2017 after a year with Wests Tigers NYC squad. Luke was a dual Premiership winner (1st Grade and Under 18’s) with the Club in 2014 and has developed his game to such an extent he is now regarded as one of the best custodians in the second tier competition. Five times this year Luke was named in the Team of the Week, scoring 12 tries, making 13 line breaks and averaging 123m per game.

Matt Ikuvalu is an Erina Junior who spent some time in the Manly system before joining the Roos in Season 2015. Matt played his way into a permanent ISP spot last season and has gone on from there, earning membership in the Team of the Week four times in Season 2017, scoring 6 tries, making 10 line breaks and averaging 133m per game.

Lonz is a Wyong Roos ISP original, signing with the Club in 2013, and quickly becoming a favourite with players and supporters. Eloni worked hard to secure himself an NRL contract with Sydney Roosters, but loves his time at Kanwal. Eloni is a regular Test player for Fiji Bati and has already featured in one World Cup campaign. Four times in Season 2017 he was named in the Team of the Week, averaging 102m per game and 27 tackles.

Rip Taylor, for the second time in three years, has been named Coach of the Year.

MITCH WILLIAMS - A CAPTAINS BLOG



A Captains Blog. A coach once told me, “if you are still playing football in September, you are doing something right”. So here we are mid-September and the ISP NSW side has a huge preliminary final clash against the New Zealand Warriors, and 1st Grade is gunning for back to back titles when they face Terrigal Sharks in this weekend’s CCDRL Grand Final. With our other senior sides failing to progress through the finals series, the Club’s hope for a premiership now rests with 1st Grade and the ISP NSW side. Whilst not having more Wyong teams featuring on Grand Final Day is disappointing, I believe the number of young players who have developed and progressed through the grades is a real highlight of the season. Eight players from last year’s Premiership winning U/19’s side have played 1st grade this year, and whilst still eligible for the age competition, each has played a full season in grade. Most of the players in this year’s U/19’s side have experienced grade football. Even with those players unavailable from time to time because of their grade commitments, the team still managed to finish just one game shy of a Grand Final spot after losing to Berkeley Vale on Sunday. Coach Jason “Angry” Parker and his staff should be congratulated on the job they continue to do in developing players. I was coached by “Angry” in the U/19’s, and the systems he has in place are effective and have enabled his teams to win many premierships over the years.

Reserve Grade and Opens didn’t live up to expectations for 2017. However, both teams still qualified for the finals, and with young players in key positions, will be stronger next season. Special mention needs to be made of the Ladies League Tag side. After winning the first finals game, the team lost a tight encounter the next week and were eliminated. In a tough competition, our Ladies took it to the top sides, and given the youth and inexperience across the squad this year, I can see nothing but success for this team in coming seasons. Both the ISP NSW side and 1st Grade had the weekend off following wins over Canterbury Bulldogs in extra time and Terrigal 14-12 in the Major Semi. The teams have taken this time to recover, but more importantly, to start preparing for the clashes ahead. First Grade will play Terrigal in the Grand Final at Woy Woy Oval at 3:30pm on Sunday in what promises to be a huge encounter. Wyong have beaten the Sharks in all three meetings this season, but it took a scintillating solo try from captain Alex Langbridge to steal a come from behind victory in their last match. Terrigal will feature in four of the five Grand Finals on Sunday, in what is a massive achievement for the Club. Both Matt and Chad Sharp, who played in the 2009 Wyong side which won the Newcastle Rugby League 1st Grade competition, will turn out for Terrigal. I’m sure they will be primed to lead the Sharks to a premiership. Wyong have been the dominant side all season, but will need to be at their very best to claim back to back titles.

In more good news for 1st Grade and the Club, Kye Martin received the Central Coast Rookie of the Year award for his remarkable first year in the top grade. After winning last year’s U/19’s competition, then working incredibly hard during pre-season training, Kye was rewarded with a 1st Grade debut in Round 1, and has been a mainstay in that team ever since. Kye was further rewarded when selected in the ISP NSW side to play Newcastle Knights in the last round of the competition. Winning this weekend’s Grand Final would be the perfect end to an outstanding season for Kye. The ISP side will face the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday at Leichardt Oval for a spot in the Grand Final. It’s also a huge clash between the teams which finished the regular season in 1st and 2nd battling for a single berth in the Grand Final. The Warriors boast a strong team all over the park and were extremely impressive in beating the Newcastle Knights last weekend. The last match between us finished in a draw, and we are expecting another tight encounter. We have put ourselves in a great position to win this competition, and on Sunday will face our toughest test yet. I know the team will not only be ready, but desperate to be the first team booked into the 2017 ISP NSW Grand Final. Over the weekend the Central Coast Junior Grand Finals were played. Wyong Roos featured in four, and after great seasons these teams produced their best footy to win all four Grand Finals. Congratulations to all Wyong Roos teams for outstanding seasons, but especially to the Premiership winning 12-3’s, 13-2’s, 16-2’s and 17’s. Special shout out to Brady Barwick, who coached the U/17’s to an extra time victory. Brady will be looking to add his own premiership as a player, when he lines up on Sunday in the 1st Grade Grand Final. I know both teams would love as much support as possible this weekend, so get in your green and gold and cheer a Roos side to victory. Go the Roos.              Mitch Williams.

ROOS JUNIORS 4 FROM 4



The Under 12/3’s, coached by Darrin Simpson, were down 22-18 with no time left on the clock. Gosford did a good job containing Roos spearhead, Jeremy Gonzales, in the last few possession sets. Cohen Wallis-Semple grabbed the ball late in the tackle count, grubbered into the ingoal and chased with determination. The Storm failed to secure the ball and Cohen went in hard, somehow getting some downward pressure on the ball despite the best efforts of the Gosford defender. The try levelled the scoreline 22-22. Cohen then slotted the conversion from right of the posts to claim the victory for his team. Roos 24 – Gosford 22.

Jason Brander’s 13/2’s made it two from two for the green and gold when they outplayed Terrigal to the tune of 28-16. This was a strong team effort to get the better of a Sharks outfit which never stopped trying.

The 16/2’s had more than their fair share of ups and downs in Season 2017, but that was all forgotten when the boys produced an overwhelming 52-10 win against Erina. Al Brady’s outfit played some of their best footy when it mattered most. Kain Comerford was Player of the Match, but that was not an easy choice given the individual efforts from sideline to sideline.

There was plenty of pressure on the Under 17’s to keep the record intact. This was one of the best  junior grand finals you could ever see. The lead changed multiple times. Some of the attack was brilliant and the defence was punishing. Wyong led 24-22 with just on five minutes remaining, then scored again to extend the lead to 28-22. Erina crossed in the corner in the last minute of play and kicked a conversion from the sideline to level the scores 28-28. The match went into extra time. Billy McGovern shaved the upright with his first field goal attempt, but then slotted the second. Wyong 29 – Erina 28.

CRL MEDIA - SCOTLAND NAME SQUAD TO PLAY COUNTRY U23 IN BALLINA

 

CRL Media Release - The Country U23’s will take on a new look Scottish side in Ballina, with the Braveheart’s naming seven uncapped players in their Rugby League World Cup Squad alongside a clutch of Super League stars including Warrington three-quarter Matthew Russell, Wigan winger Lewis Tierney, St Helens prop Luke Douglas, and Scotland’s most-capped player, Danny Brough of Huddersfield.

Whilst injuries have ruled out Lachlan Coote, Kane Linnett and Peter Wallace; Coach Steve McCormack has turned to a clutch of up and coming talents from the NRL and stalwarts of the Scotland scene.

McCormack told Scotlandrl.com he was excited by the players at his disposal.

 “It is a young squad but that’s exciting, too,” admitted McCormack.

“When we took our youngest ever team to play in France two years ago, I said some of them would be on the plane to Australia and a lot of them will be on Sunday. Alex Walker (age 22) has been outstanding for London Broncos this season, week-in, week-out and Lewis Tierney (who has just turned 23) was one of Catalans’ best players in their big games at the end of the season.”

“We’ve got a big group of players – the likes of Brough, Douglas, Addy, Matty Russell, Kav – who I know well and trust,” says McCormack. “They have always been there for Scotland and given it their all. I know they will do that again and their experience is going to be vital to help the young lads. We’re under no illusions how tough it’s going to be, but I also know it’s going to be fantastic.”

Ballina will host a festival of football on Friday, 21st October, when the Country U23’s Representative team take on Scotland in their final match before the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

 

The brightest young talent in Country Rugby League will have the opportunity to impress against some of the world’s best players, with the Scotland Bravehearts taking on the Country side at Ballina’s Kingsford Smith Park.

 

Some of the best rugby league talent on the North Coast will be on show in Ballina with Group 2 Ladies League Tag Premiers Coffs Harbour taking on NRRRL Premiers Byron Bay and Group 1 and Group 18 going head-to-head in an U16’s trial for the Northern Rivers Country Championship side.

 

The match between Country and Scotland will be Live Streamed courtesy of BarTV Sports.

AUPOURI TO START FOR COUNTRY AGAINST TOA SAMOA



Wyong Roos half, Kauri Aupouri, has been named as starting five eighth for Country when the boys from the bush face Samoa at Wagga Wagga on 13 October. Toa Samoa will field an exceptionally strong team with plenty of NRL and International experience in this warm up for their Rugby League World Cup campaign. Kauri, at his best, is capable of troubling the best defences around with his speed, strength and kicking game, but he and his team mates will need to be energetic and focused with players such as Frank Pritchard, Josh Papalii and Joey Leilua in the opposition. The match at McDonalds Park will headline a festival of footy commencing 3pm which also includes an Open Age Indigenous match between Group 9 and Group 20, a Women’s tackle 9’s game between Riverina and Western, and an Under 17’s rep affair featuring Riverina and Monaro. Both the Country and Samoan squads will be out and about in the Riverina community in the week leading up to the match.

DEAL THE CARDS



 Alan Lowe played with Wyong Roos in 1980. Although he spent only a season with the Club, the friendships he made have endured. Alan and his wife Di lost their daughter Katie to bowel cancer in 2016. Katie was 27 years old. Lowey tried to make sense of it all through writing a book. The memoir contains stories about people he has met and ruminations on things he has learned over the years. Some of the contents are very funny. Others you may find sad. But it is always about what it is to be human and the shared experience of living within a community of other humans.

Hello to the Wyong Kangaroo Faithful,

My name is Alan Lowe. I was lucky enough to wear the Green and Gold of the Kangaroos in 1980.

Last year my beautiful daughter, Katie, passed away from Bowel Cancer. Aged 27 years young.

Our world will never be the same.

Wyong Roos donated gear to auction at a fundraiser for Katie. We will be eternally grateful. That night our mate and former Kangaroo, Tony Murray, topped the auction with a framed Parramatta jumper signed by the 81, 82 & 83 premiership sides.

Thanks, Muzza. Rugby League friendships last a lifetime, which only goes to prove that our game is without doubt, The Greatest Game of All

In honour of Katie I have written a book. The proceeds raised are going to:

Camp Quality,

The Mark Hughes Foundation,

Bowel Cancer Australia 

The Better Together Foundation.

We are also looking for sponsors to buy blocks of books to gift them to people in oncology wards around the country. Just to help brighten the days of people who have been dealt a bad hand. Sponsors can nominate a hospital if they wish.

If you would like to help us help others, the book is available on our webpage

www.dealthecards.com.au

We also have a Facebook page "Deal the Cards, Alan Lowe”, so please jump on and like us. Say g'day. We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks to NSW Captain, Boyd Cordner, for letting us use the photo.

The grainy old photo of Wyong Under 19’s 1980, if you look carefully, depicts Dave Lindsay, Brett Heasman, Steve Griffin, Geoff (Jeffro) Jones, Bruce (Big Brooster) Wilde, Frank Brajlih, Alan (Albert) Spiers, Steve (Wakka) Crompton, Coach Allan (Johnno) Johnston, Phil (Fimbles) Langley, Alan Lowe, Glen Lofts, Steve Marks, Ian (Thommo) Thompson, Steve (The Hulk) Baker and Ray Johnson. Still believe we were ripped off in that Grand Final boys.

Thanks to the Wyong Kangaroos for allowing us to promote our book on their webpage.

'We're the team on the coast, we're the team that win the most, we are the Wyong Kangaroos"; still my favourite team song.

Kind Regards

Alan Lowe
