DANIEL LAWSON 400 GAMES FOR WYONG ROOS

 

Daniel Lawson arrived at Wyong from Ourimbah as a teenager in the early ‘90’s and it was only fitting he played his 400th Grade game for the Roos against the Magpies last Sunday.

Henry started with Wyong as a flying winger, but in recent seasons has found himself in the middle of the park doing battle with the big boys. Daniel is one of the few players still running around whose career has spanned the Club’s pre and post Newcastle Tooheys Cup period (2003-2012).

Whilst his record shows only one try since Season 2014, for Lawso it was never about performance; pride in the jumper, looking after your team mates and enjoying every moment have been the hallmarks of his time at Wyong. So here is Danny, 400 games and 1600 penalties down the track, a handful of premierships in hand, looking a little worse for wear but with plenty of great footy memories, still out there banging away.

Congrats Lawso on becoming a 400 game player with Wyong Roos. No one has played more grade games for the Club, and that is an achievement which must be acknowledged and is certainly something in which you and your family can take great pride.

Lawso celebrates with Mitch Williams

CRL APPROVES USE OF PRESCRIPTION GOGGLES IN RUGBY LEAGUE


Country Rugby League has sanctioned the use of protective goggles for Rugby League games and training provided the goggles have no rigid components which could cause harm to the wearer or other players.

These goggles would usually be made of soft plastic with an elastic head band to keep them in place. CRL recommends that head gear be worn as well to reduce the chance of the headband sliding down the wearer’s neck.

Any player wearing goggles should seek written clarification from their optician that the goggles are suitable for contact sport. The letter from the optician is to be submitted to the Regional Manager of the competition in which the player participates.  A copy of the optician’s letter and this policy should be retained by the player and may be provided on match days to reassure match officials and opponents.

Despite this policy the suitability of any player equipment is ultimately a decision for the match referee.

CRL MEDIA - OVER 100,000 PLAYING RUGBY LEAGUE IN NSW


 

For the first time, Rugby League participation across New South Wales has exceeded 100,000 with increased numbers of men, women, boys and girls playing the game in the country and city according to figures released today for the 2018 season.

Country Rugby League’s total of 59,405 – an overall increase of 5.5%  - along with the NSW Rugby League’s total of 41,753 participants - an increase for the first time in five years (up 5.54 per cent from 39,560), takes the combined total of participants across the state to 101,158.

The release of national rugby league participation statistics revealed a number of positive outcomes for CRL, with one-third of all nationally registered players participating in CRL competitions; highlighted by the continual growth of female participation and positive results in several male participation segments.

 Other key CRL figures included:

  • 28% increase in female participation, with 11,781 female players accounting for 48% of nationally registered female participants.
  • A small increase in male participation which accounts for 31% of nationally registered male participants.
  • Four out of six CRL Regions recording growth in male participation.
  • All six CRL regions recording growth in female participation.
  • An increase in new and returning players to the game.
  • Above national average retention rates for CRL clubs.

Whilst pleased about the positive results achieved this season, CRL Operations Manager Bert Lowrie believes there is still work to be done to increase participation at all levels.

“The release of national participation statistics has validated the great work being done by clubs, administrators, volunteers, development officers and staff across Regional NSW,” said Lowrie.

 “Whilst overall results are positive, we acknowledge there are many individual challenges regional areas face at a community sports level and there is no singular approach that can be taken to growing both junior and senior participation.

“CRL are working together with the NRL and State Leagues on the creation of a Player Development Framework to develop solutions to support and grow participation at all levels.

“There is often doom and gloom associated with regional participation statistics, but the figures indicate there is cause for optimism and the continuation of positive results in the years to come.”

The continual growth of female rugby league continues to produce phenomenal results, with the implementation of CRL Women’s Nines competitions across the state providing the impetus for increased participation.

 “We’re extremely proud of the pathways being created for female participants in Regional NSW and to see a 28% increase to over 11,700 registered players is a great achievement.

 “On top of this we have over 2000 players competing in alternative program formats like the CRL Women’s Nines which has led to the formation of additional tackle competitions throughout the state and we’re already seeing a huge increase in players to wanting to enrol in the Nines this season.”

  “Teenage participation is a challenging area for all sports and despite a small decrease overall, we’ve seen an increase in Male Under-16 to 18’s numbers in three of our six regions and overall growth in male numbers in four of our six regions.

 “We’ll continue to work closely with the NRL and state leagues on all areas of participation and we’re confident we’ll see improvements in teenage participation in the near future.”

Overall recruitment and retention rates also produced positive results with 12,656 new players introduced to the game and retention rates slightly up on national averages.

ROOS IN OZTAG WORLD CUP



Seven Wyong Roos were in action for Australia in the Oztag World Cup held in Coffs Harbour 1-4 November. Tylah Vallance and Tanaya Millar from the Club’s Ladies League Tag were part of the Under 16 Girls Team which defeated Australian Indigenous 10-0 in the Final. Wyong teammates, Sarah Dimech and Claire Reed were members of the Open Women’s team which were too good for China in the final, cruising to a 7-1 victory. Mitch Williams, Luke Sharpe and Aaron Heaven in the Open Men’s were shaded by the girls, bowing out to ultimate Champions New Zealand in a tightly contested semi decided in extra time drop off. Congratulations to all the reps from everyone at Roos HQ.

PANTHERS SURPRISE ROOS JUNIOR SUMMER SQUAD

 

Penrith NRL squad members took some time off training to check the form of the Junior Roos at Summer Squad on 27 November, 2018. The Panthers were enjoying a camp at Kooindah Waters which incorporated a round of golf at the resort, some grappling and boxing at All Sorts Gym Wyong Creek and then field and gym sessions at Roos HQ. This is the first occasion in many years the full Penrith squad was available this time of year. Even Nathan Cleary in a moon boot, Jimmie Maloney after recent neck surgery and the Kiwi test players were on deck. The extreme weather did not deter the boys from another field and gym session on 28 November. If you happen to be at Norah Head on 29 November, there could be some Panther sightings on the sand hills.

ROOS GRAB UNDER 18'S TITLE


Wyong Roos defeated South Lakes Roosters 22-0 at Morry Breen Field on 24 November to annex the Under 18 CRL Central Hunter Women’s 9’s Premiership. Despite a couple of close shaves in the earlier rounds, the girls improved as the comp progressed to the point where there was a noticeable gap between the Roos and their nearest rivals. The team comprised many players from last season’s Under 16 champions. Sophie Buller was strong through the middle of the park and at the edges in the Final, and repeatedly laid a platform for Olivia Glanville, Joeli Morris and Carissa Harrison to carve through the opposition. Defence was a priority with all the girls working together to kill off any threat. The level of composure and concentration displayed in the final was top class.

The Roos Under 14’s qualified for their final as well but found Erina too strong on the day. The team played some very good footy throughout the tournament and collected some big scalps on the way, to the final, but Erina were aggressive from sideline to sideline and showed few chinks in their armour.

The competitions across the age groups showed significant growth from their inception in 2017, introducing many more girls to the tackle game.

Any females interested in playing the 2019 Season should give Sarah Dimech a call on (02) 43922799.

Back Row (L to R): Kasey Campbell, Bianca Blackhall, Chelsea Brander, Olivia Glanville, Joeli Morris, Kristy-Rose Milson & Carissa Harrison.

Front Row (L to R): Ashlee Russell, Alee Purcell, Petria Symington, Andria Symington & Lily Hanning.

REED AND FROST SELECTED IN REP SQUAD

 

Claire Reed and Emma Frost have gained selection in the Central Coast Roosters Women’s Representative squad for the inaugural CRL Country Championship in 2019. The huge advance in the women’s side of the game demanded a top level representative competition to parallel the Under 23’s. The women will play 13 a side tackle matches for the first time in 2019 in a Country Championship format. Wyong Roos is honoured and proud to have Claire and Emma selected to represent Central Coast Division.

COASTLINE ROOS UPDATE


Wyong Roos continues to support their Fijian cousins, the Coastline Roos of Sigatoka.

The Coastline Roos were the only club to enter two senior male teams and one senior female team in the recent Fiji Rugby League 9’s competition. The Coastline Greens were eliminated in the finals, but the Whites progressed to play Nadera Panthers in the Grand Final, narrowly losing 12-10 in the decider. Former NRL player, Sisa Waqa, took the field for the Panthers.

The Coastline boys have qualified for three Grand Finals in the last 12 months and will soon undertake a promotional tour of Vanuatu.

CARE PACKAGES FOR THE TROOPS



Staff at Wyong Leagues Club for the last 5 years have been preparing and despatching Christmas Care Packages for Australian Defence personnel serving away from home. The concept started in 2014 with just 30 packages; in 2017 it had grown to 181 and in 2018 the record was extended to 211 packages.

The contents of the packages are donated by Club members, patrons, sponsors and staff and in 2018 the donations exceeded 500kg. Tim Tams, ANZAC biscuits, lollies, games and toiletries are perennial favourites. Brand names are particularly appreciated. Being unopened and unexpired is a pre-requisite.

The goods were packed in standard 2kg BX2 boxes provided at a discount by Australia Post Lakehaven, then mailed free of charge to a centralised ADF collection point in Sydney for shipping overseas or to northern Australia. The production line at Wyong Leagues Club was machine like, with the staff completing the packaging process inside 6 hours.

Judy Cook provided hand-made Christmas cards. Surplus goods were donated to Coast Shelter to assist with that organisation’s charitable work on the Central Coast.

The letters of appreciation from the ADF personnel are heartfelt and heart-warming. All those involved are to be congratulated.
