Round 2 of the Newcastle Toohey’s Cup had Wyong drawn against competition heavyweights West Newcastle. The weather went from atrocious to diabolical and the extreme conditions saw water pooling across Morry Breen Field by halftime in 1st Grade. Rarely, if ever, have the current generation experienced playing on a surface as wet as Roos HQ on Sunday.

West Newcastle 18 – Wyong 6

With several players from the Knights system including NSW Under 16 Rep, Logan Radziewic, in the team, West Newcastle would have to be the early favourites for the Premiership. However, the young Roos were not daunted by reputations and battled toe to toe with their more fancied opponents for the first half.

Big back rower Lachlan Williams crossed for the Rosellas in the 10th minute finding a weakness in Wyong’s left edge defence. Radziewic converted for a 6-0 lead. The Roos responded in the 14th minute, creating time and space for centre Jye Treay to muscle over on a right side shift. Travis Vawdon subsequently kicked a penalty goal locking the scores 6-6 at halftime.

Just 5 mins after the break, Williams was over for his second. Radziewic converted for the visitors to again lead by six. Wests sealed the contest with a soft try to Romano Cook from acting half. Radziewic had no difficulty with the conversion.

Wyong was not able to mount consistent pressure on the opposition because of a relatively high error rate, but once that is rectified the Roos will be a genuine threat. Jack Bishop was the Players’ Player and Jack Teale received the Coach’s Award.

Wyong 24 – West Newcastle 10

The Roos controlled this match from go to woe. Graham Bates did very well to keep his feet and bounce through several attempted tackles to cross in the 4th minute. Todd Lewis identified Souths were short of numbers, crossed behind the ruck and powered over in the 10th minute for Wyong’s second try. Aaiden Wright converted both tries to give the home team a 12-0 lead at halftime. Shortly after the break, Rosella’s big man, Kingston Paru, scored after testing the Roos defence close to the line. Terence Seuseu showed his class at acting half putting first Matena Tangitu over (42nd minute) from a well worked reverse ruck play and then Robbie Rodger in for a try (50th minute) from an equally well worked crash play. Wright was faultless with the conversion of both tries to put the Roos in front 24-4. Souths Half, Josh Dwyer scored a neat try at the death, kicking a dropped ball into the ingoal and executing a patient pursuit. Max Buderus (Danny’s nephew) converted from the sideline for the final points of the match. Jack Stringer (son of Paul) was a standout with four clean breaks, some clever offloads and solid defence. Jack rightfully received the Players’ Player Award. The Coach’s Award went to Graham Bates who looked at home in the wet conditions.

Wyong 8 – West Newcastle 4

The 1st Grade match was dominated by defence. Repeated handling errors from the home team allowed Wests to colonise Wyong territory in the opening periods of this match. The Roos were well organised and sufficiently resolute to withstand that early pressure but looked less cohesive with the ball. Neither team had scored by halftime. Morry Breen Field became Lake Breen in the second half. Lachie Hanneghan kicked a penalty to give the Roos a 2-0 lead. A strong kick from Hanneghan coupled with a tremendous chase provided the opportunity for Wyong to trap the Rosellas deep in their own real estate soon afterwards. An ensuing error from the northerners gave the home team its chance. Matt Power threaded between defenders from close range. Hanneghan converted to push the Roos out to an 8-0 lead. The appalling conditions hinted that lead would be enough. Wests threw everything it had at Wyong. A quick shift to the left put winger Michael Hendy on the outside of the defensive line and he raced to the ingoal ahead of the cover. Hendy’s try was not converted. There were some nervous moments in the dying stages, but the Roos managed to hold on for the win. The victory came at a cost with Player Coach Mitch Williams sustaining a fractured cheek bone. Mitch underwent surgery on Wednesday and was back at training Thursday night. However, it may be a little time before Mini returns to the field. Jake Lewis continued his 2019 form in this match with some telling carries and jarring defence. Jaron Purcell, playing at left backrow, was best on ground; rock solid in defence and running for plenty of metres with the ball. Nick O’Meley was voted Players’ Player and Regan Clark received the Asst. Coach’s Award.

Dear all,
It is with immense regret, that the CCDRL is left with the difficult decision to cancel the senior Central Coast Rugby League Competition for 2020.
With clubs faced with the new crowd restrictions and the inability to raise game day revenue, it became untenable for clubs to continue.
The decision is also to protect the health and safety of all our players, officials and volunteers.

The CCDRL wishes to thank all the volunteers that worked so hard to get their clubs up and running in these difficult times.
We will continue to work hard towards the 2021 season.

Stay safe and well.

The NSWRL is calling on the cooperation of all Rugby League supporters to minimise the number of spectators at community football matches across the state this weekend following a request from the NSW Ministry of Health.

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said all community sporting organisations have been asked to help decrease the number of people gathering at sporting events in response to rising case numbers in NSW and the ongoing risk of COVID-19 transmission in the community.

The NSW Ministry of Health has updated the guidelines with entry to indoor facilities and fenced venues limited to one person per participant (one parent or caregiver) at junior sport where practical and restricting spectator entry at adult community sport.

More than 80,000 participants across the state are set to return to community football competitions for the re-start of Rugby League on Saturday 18 July, with the exception of competitions in south-western Sydney.

The re-start of these competitions has been delayed for two weeks until 1 August because of the current outbreak in this area.

“It is really important that everyone in the Rugby League family takes the advice of NSW Health on board and works with us to minimise the number of spectators at games and training,” Trodden said.

“We are all very excited about the opportunity to returning to play this weekend but if we don’t follow the advice of government and health officials we are putting the entire community at risk.

“I urge everyone to be patient and only attend if you have to.”

Apart from the usual COVID-19 requirements for participants, officials and spectators to stay away from Rugby League training sessions and competitions, if they are unwell or experiencing flu-like symptoms, the NSW Ministry of Health has also requested the following to be excluded:
•        Participants (including spectators and officials) if they have visited Victoria in the 14 days prior
•        Participants (including spectators and officials) if they have attended any of the reported case locations listed on the NSW Health website (

  • Players and staff are encouraged to travel to training by themselves or in household groups. If you secure a lift to training or use public transport, please observe the social distancing and hygiene protocols.

Arrangements will change as restrictions ease, but there is always the prospect that restrictions may tighten at some stage. The Club has never had to navigate anything like COVID-19. Things will be different for some time and we will all need to show some patience and common sense. Observe the rules. Keep everyone safe.

Follow the link below for the Board of Directors - Wyong Rugby League Club Group following the decision to suspend senior rugby league for the 2020 season. 

Click Here to view the attachment.

            Updated Mon May 11 16:44:21 2020 AEDT


The economic downturn and restrictions associated with COVID-19 have had a significant impact on WRLCG.

Prior to the crisis, the Group employed in excess of 350 people and provided funding to more than 30 sporting bodies as well as charities and not-for-profit service organisations. Throw in the various contractors and suppliers reliant on the Group and you can start to appreciate its importance to the local community.

The fixed costs across eight licensed clubs is substantial. Future revenue is uncertain. The reality is that normal trading will not resume for some time. Within this context, on Wednesday night (6 May) the Board resolved to conserve the financial well-being of the Group by suspending all non-essential expenditure. The decision effectively means Wyong Roos will be withdrawing from all senior rugby league competitions in Season 2020.

The decision was a difficult one; rugby league is the beating heart of the Club. However, it is a decision that had to be made in the best interests of the Group as a whole.

There are unavoidable costs associated with operating a football program. The Club was not prepared to compromise on certain costs relating to the health and safety of players. Moreover, the cost of complying with the new regulatory regime to be implemented once footy resumes is unknown. These factors weighed heavily in the Board’s decision.

Season 2020 was shaping as another successful year for the Roos. Beating Dubbo CYMS in Dubbo, qualifying for the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup and defeating the ‘Pickers in a 1st Grade trial at Maitland were pre-season highlights. The Club is grateful to those who contributed and shares the disappointment.

Wyong Roos has experienced many difficulties in its long history. COVID-19 is the battleground of the current generation. The players, staff and management will meet this challenge. Rest assured Wyong Roos will be back.

The decision only relates to Wyong Seniors.

The Juniors are set to resume training on 1 July and competition on 18 July. WRLCG will revisit the issue of junior rugby league once NSWRL advises the rules and restrictions applicable to community football.

The New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL) Board today established a plan to work towards a re-start of Rugby League activities from July 2020 to coincide with a common return date for some other winter sports across the state and the commencement of term 3 in the school year.

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said the decision to work towards a shortened Community Rugby League season and a re-start of other abbreviated senior competitions from 18 July 2020 will be further reviewed and confirmed on 1 June 2020 subject to the existing Government advice available at the time.

Trodden said today’s decision took into consideration the NSW Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order 2020 which is currently preventing sport from being conducted and expires at midnight on 29 June 2020 (unless further extended).

“Accordingly, the earliest possible return date is 30 June 2020, unless the NSW Government decides to lift the Public Health order earlier,” Trodden said.

“Most winter sports favour working towards a return date of 18 July 2020, at the end of the next school holiday period, with a return to training on 1 July 2020, subject to the status of the public health in the interim.

“The Board and Management of NSWRL have been continuing to closely monitor developments with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to strictly follow the Government advice so that we will only return to playing footy when it is deemed safe to do so.

“The NSWRL and everyone in our Rugby League community need to be responsive to the continual changes to the Government advice around risks to public health for the broader community, and if it becomes apparent that a July start date is not feasible, we will adjust and reassess.”

The decision to work towards starting Rugby League competitions from 18 July 2020, and to resume training from 1 July 2020, applies to the following:

  • Community Football, involving more than 100,000 boys, girls, men and women across the state to commence. The 2020 season was originally due to commence 4 April when it was postponed in March. All Clubs and Leagues are encouraged to continue to take registrations beyond the traditional 30 June registration cut-off date.

  • Ron Massey Cup and Sydney Shield competitions to resume; and Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership to commence. One round of Ron Massey Cup and Sydney Shield had been played when the competitions were suspended on 27 March.

In relation to the nine competitions cancelled by the NSWRL Board on 27 March, the Board has today determined that no premiers and no player of the series awards will be declared for any of those competitions for 2020. This applies to the following:

  • Major competitions: Canterbury Cup NSW, Jersey Flegg Cup, Women’s Country Championships and Men’s Under 23s Country Championships

  • Junior Representative competitions: SG Ball Cup, Tarsha Gale Cup, Harold Matthews Cup, Andrew Johns Cup and Laurie Daley Cup.

The majority of the squad which did so well against Dubbo CYMS in Round 2 was retained for the Round 3 match against Cabramatta at Morry Breen Field on 22 February.

The Two Blues fielded an impressive team in terms of size and experience. Wyong was quick out of the blocks and raced to a 14-0 lead by quarter time. Jake Lewis grabbed the first try running an unders line off acting half Matt Power and penetrating between the posts. Lachie Hanneghan scored from close range in the next possession set and Dustin Shaw did likewise from a left side play in the 12th minute. Hanneghan converted Lewis’ try.

Cabramatta returned fire midway through the second quarter. Left wing Asoke Sadranu cut back against the grain and planted the ball just left of the uprights. Fullback Zac Mackay converted. Wyong led 14-6 at halftime.

Two minutes into the third quarter, Dylan Clark replicated his try from the previous week angling into space off skipper Mitch Williams. Hanneghan converted to give the home team a 20-6 lead. Cabramatta looked dangerous when they held the ball and created some second phase play. Backrower David Minute crossed between the posts and with Mackay’s second conversion the gap had narrowed to 20-12. Wyong struck back almost immediately, right centre Tomi Kaati proving too powerful down his corridor on the eastern side of Morry Breen Field. Hanneghan missed the conversion, but shortly afterwards potted a penalty goal from almost the same position. The Roos held sway 26-12 at the end of the third quarter.

Seventeen minutes into the final quarter Two Blues centre Joseph Romeo touched down off a kick then converted is own try. Fortunately for the tiring home team, there was insufficient time to do any further damage on the scoreboard. Wyong 26 Cabramatta 18.

The Roos advance to the Semi-Finals where they will face Glebe-Burwood Wolves at Morry Breen Field on Saturday 29 February. Kick off is at 2.30pm.

The Roos travelled to Dubbo for the Round 2 match fortunate to be alive in the competition following the 20-12 defeat to Asquith at Cessnock the previous Saturday. Wyong was not at full strength for the trip out west, but the game was an opportunity for the younger crew to impress the Head Coach with the CCDRL Season due to kick off on 4 April.

Dustin Shaw at left centre crossed midway through the first quarter only for play to be recalled for a forward pass. Jake O’Meley plunged over between the posts shortly afterwards but play was again recalled, this time for obstruction. The teams went to quarter time without scoring, but the visitors had the upper hand, too well organised and energetic for the locals.

Play was suspended part way through the second quarter. Lightning and horizontal rain in central west NSW. The repeated interruptions in play blunted Wyong’s dominance. Play resumed under a blue sky with 8 mins remaining to halftime. Tomi Kaati at right centre scored the Roos first points. Lachlan Hanneghan converted from wide out. The green and gold led 6-0 going into the break.

The rain returned. Shaw chased down a kick from Mitch Williams in the 8th minute of the third quarter to score his team’s second try after Williams supported a midfield break on the inside. Hanneghan converted from the sideline. Dubbo responded by shifting the ball to the outside of Wyong’s left edge defence. The sideline conversion attempt was waved away. The Roos were ahead 12-4 at three quarter time.

Cody Boyle on debut scored a 45m intercept try to break CYMS back. Hanneghan’s conversion from directly in front extended Wyong’s lead to 18-4. Poor left edge defence allowed the home team to cross for a second try. Backrower Dylan Clark angled between defenders off another well-timed pass from Williams for the Roos fourth try. Hanneghan’s conversion from wide on the left provided the final 24-8 scoreline.

Very encouraging signs for the Roos after only a few weeks of serious training.

The Round 1 NSW Challenge Cup match between Wyong and Asquith at Cessnock Sports Ground on 8 February was a reunion of sorts with former team mates facing off against one another. Roos 2014 Player of the Year, Magnus Stromquist, was in the middle for the Magpies. Veteran Willie Manu, now with Asquith was a member of the Roos 2015 NSW Cup Grand Final team. Nick O’Meley played fullback in the Roos 2016 CCDRL 1st Grade Premiership team. Mark O’Meley, an important part of the North Sydney Coaching Staff, also represented Wyong in the NSW Cup and was in the unique position of having a son in each team.

Wyong scored first in the 11th minute whilst Asquith had a player in the bin and led 6-0 at quarter time. Nick O’Meley provided the Magpie’s response from a 30m burst down the eastern sideline in the second quarter. The Roos led 6-4 at the halftime break. Asquith regrouped and crossed for three quick tries to put the match beyond Wyong, but some late possession in good field position saw the Roos engineer a strong finish. The 20-12 final scoreline was a fair reflection of the match.

Captain Coach, Mitch Williams, was pleased with the first hit out of the season after just three weeks of training. Asquith boasted nine players from North Sydney and provided a good test for many of the Roos younger players. Mark O’Meley adjudicated a narrow points decision to Jake “Mini-Ogre” over elder brother Nick, though his scoring system was somewhat obscure to all but himself.

Due to some personnel issues Wyong instead of Asquith will advance to play Dubbo CYMS at Dubbo on 16 February.

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.

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

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.
