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.

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.

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.
