Wyong was emphatically eliminated from the NSW Challenge Cup on Saturday by a rampant Guildford. The 34-0 scoreline was a fair reflection of the match, with the Owls dominant both sides of the ball and the Roos attack struggling to make any impression. Guildford fullback Dominic Reardon scored twice in the opening quarter on his return to Morry Breen Field after spending 2016 with the home team’s ISP Cup squad. The visitors led 10-0 at quarter time and carried that lead to the halftime break. Wyong engineered opportunities but lacked penetration. Juyden Field scored the first of his four tries in the 56th minute and the conversion by Joshua Camroux extended the Owls’ lead to 16-0 at three quarter time. Field scored his second try within a minute of play resuming and it was one way traffic thereafter, Guildford finding little resistance from a home team fresh out of ideas. The winners advance to the final to be played at a country venue on the long weekend in June. The Roos now look toward a club trial with West Newcastle on 16 March in preparation for the CCDRL kick off on 6 April next.

Wyong defeated Wentworthville 12 – 6 at Morry Breen Field on Saturday to advance to Round 3 of the NSW Challenge Cup and the final four of that competition.

The match was a dour affair with both teams adopting a conservative approach befitting a knock out competition. Neither team scored in the first quarter. The Roos defended their line for long periods but engineered few scoring opportunities of their own. As possession began to swing in favour of the home team in the second period, the green and gold spent more time in opposition territory. Pressure combined with field position were converted into points in the 30th minute. Wyong right centre, Luke Dolbel, shrugged off some tiring defenders to crash over right of the uprights. Lachlan Hanneghan converted to give the Roos a 6-0 lead. The Magpies replied shortly afterwards. The Wyong ball players crowded one another on tackle two as another chance for points presented. The ball went to ground. Wenty worked upfield and aided by consecutive penalties began throwing big men at the Wyong line. The Roos could hold on no longer and backrower Haimona Hiroti forced his way to the ingoal and grounded the ball. Half Beau Henry converted. Despite the visitors having further chances the Wyong line held firm and the teams went to halftime 6 – 6.

The match ebbed and flowed with the changes of possession. Both teams were tentative. Neither could gain physical dominance. Wyong needed to play fast but lacked coherence and energy with the ball. Wentworthville lacked the conditioning to maximise their size advantage. Jarrod Kessler stole the ball in the 55th minute close to halfway. The Magpies were penalised during the ensuing defensive set. Skipper Mitch Williams took a quick tap and skipped past the retreating defence. The Roos created some second phase play resulting in Ethan Tetevano wrestling the ball down to score. Hanneghan converted. Wyong 12 – 6.

The home team took that lead into the final quarter. The Magpies increased their intensity but surrendered their attention to detail. The Roos hung on, but only just.

Wyong face Guildford Owls at Roos HQ on 2 March for a spot in the Final.

The Round 1 match saw inaugural NSW Challenge Cup winners Macquarie at home to the competition newcomers Wyong.

The Scorpions started well, controlling the ball and playing to their strengths with aggressive running close to the ruck and nice variety from acting half. Several of the home team’s big men poked their noses through the defence but were unable to find support. The Roos at times struggled to manage the Macquarie attack.

The Toronto boys led 4-0 at the quarter time break, then 10-0 shortly into the second period when skipper Andy Sumner took advantage of sustained pressure inside the opposition half.

Wyong responded midway through the second quarter. Five eighth Lachlan Hanneghan dummied then slipped in behind the defensive line which had advanced beyond the ball. Hanneghan converted his try and when he subsequently kicked a penalty goal on halftime to narrow the scoreline to 10-8, there had been somewhat of a change in momentum.

Terence Seu Seu kicked late in the tackle count. The ball was touched in flight before finding the line giving the Roos both the feed of the consequent scrum and position on the Scorpions 20m line. The visitors worked for a set play. Shaq Mitchell attacked the line with his 130kg frame and was too strong. Hanneghan converted. Wyong 14-10. Luke Dolbel stole the ball on the Wyong 40m line as Macquarie attempted a left side spread and raced clear to score. Hanneghan made it four from as many attempts to extend the Roos lead to 20 – 10.

Wyong received a penalty soon after the restart. Fullback Luke Sharpe took a quick tap and sprinted into Scorpion real estate. The Roos worked methodically to a scoring position and another rehearsed move at the ruck resulted in prop Jake Lewis crashing over from close range. Hanneghan’s conversion gave the visitors a 26-10 lead.

Macquarie needed to short circuit the Roos’ momentum and opted for some big defence. Unfortunately for the home team some of the tackling was a little high for the officials. Sumner objected to the Referee’s interpretation and was binned. The binning was subsequently converted to a dismissal when Sumner further objected. The hopes of the home team departed with Sumner.

Dolbel made a clean break in the final quarter but could not put his winger Kye Martin away. Macquarie regrouped, and despite being a man short stretched Wyong from sideline to sideline. Only desperate defence kept the Roos line intact. The visitors moved upfield and camped inside Macquarie territory. Another set play saw Mitchell drift back towards the play the ball and pick up Hanneghan running a hard, straight line on the opposite side of the ruck. Hanneghan touched down and converted. Wyong 32-10.

Scorpions returned fire with a late try on the back of some short, sharp passing engaging the defensive line. Final scoreline Wyong 32 defeated Macquarie 16. The Roos advance to play Wentworthville Magpies at Morry Breen Field Kanwal on Saturday 23 February commencing 4.00pm. The Scorpions now focus on preparations for the real NRL.

Round 1 of the NSWRL Junior Representative seaon was played last weekend.

Tarsha Gale Cup

There were plenty of Wyong Roos amongst the points when Newcastle Knights steamrolled the ‘Dogs 58-0. Carissa Harrison grabbed a double (7th & 18th mins). Lily Hanning (23rd min) and Joeli Morris (43rd min) crossed as well in a dominant display. Tanaya Millar kicked two goals. Whilst she did not crack the scoreboard, Olivia Glanville played the entire game, had a hand in many of the Newcastle tries and was a constant threat with the ball.

S G Ball Cup

Jaron Purcell in his first serious hit out following ankle surgery scored in the 18th minute to give the Knights an 18-4 lead over Canterbury, but after he was replaced just before halftime, the Bankstown Boys slowly worked their way back into the match and eventually gained the upper hand to win 28-24.

Central Coast Roosters were narrowly defeated 16-10 by perennial favourites Parramatta on Saturday. The three tries to two loss at Morry Breen Field was a good test for the local boys who look to be on the rise in this year’s competition.

Harold Matthews Cup

The Central Coast lads went down 20-14. The match finished three tries all and it was only superior goal kicking which won the day for the visitors.

CCR have a bye in Round 2.

The Knights boys will do battle with Manly at St Johns Oval Charlestown on Saturday and the girls journey to Belconnen Oval to face the Raiders.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Club agreed to match funds so raised dollar for dollar; $36,080.80 in quick time to directly assist those in need. Well done to everyone involved.

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.
