NSW Country Cockatoos v Sydney Subbies May 17 @ Terrigal
The scores were close throughout. It was 10 all at halftime before NSW Country scored a great converted try well into the second half to make the score 17-10. A penalty goal right on fulltime made the final score 20-10.

Shamrocks vs Vikings game yesterday was a thriller. Only 1 point the difference for most of the game. Vikings had some big bopa front rowers that tired early, and the smaller Shamrocks pack got on top of them as the game progressed. 4 minutes to go and Shamrocks scored in the corner but couldn't convert (surely that could keep Vikings out for 4 minutes), the Vikings big bopas found something from somewhere (they were out on their feet), drove up the middle and scored on full time. Great game (not very skilful) played hard, without the usual Shamrocks Vikings venom. Could have been a better result but I'll get over it.
Now to the key report Steak sandwiches, Vikings do a good one but not quite up to Bowral's standard HOWEVER they include beetroot all steak sandwiches should include beetroot -and they do good coffee.

A couple of very interesting results in this round - most notable Ourimbah giving Terrigal a bit of a towelling and Northlakes overcoming Warnervale. It is sad to see how far Kariong have fallen after playing in the grand final numerous times in a row in the late '00s (losing to Avoca Beach each year). I hope their rebuilding starts bearing fruit soon for the benefit of the entire comp.

Gday all. Warning: Huge post. I'll be posting all my Newcastle Hunter Rugby news in here now. This will avoid double posting. The old thread will stay available for past reference. Here is the link below.


I have a couple of updates. First I'd like to share this article of local Newcastle refs that are going through an amazing fitness journey together. Very positive article.


As far as the mens comp goes this is a link to James Gardiners Rugby blog on premier 1 Rugby. I'm hoping to get around to a few more premier 1 games since I've stopped playing again this year.


The week by week scores can be found through the Newcastle Hunter Rugby Webpage (you can also find "Rugby News" for download there too).


On the women's side of things Merewether-Carlton who have acquired quite a few former Uni players look like the team to beat this year. Results seen through the link below.

Women's homepage http://hunterwomensrugby.wix.com/hwru

On a personal note I've learnt the hard way not to underestimate your emotional attachment to a club. I had played against my old team in 7's/10's comps since leaving - with no issue. However, I had not played back at the old ground & in front of the whole club. This was the sticking point, a week out from returning to the Uni grounds I psychologically just couldn't do it. A mate from Uni is telling me to come back but for this year I've decided to stick to Judo. It has been an interesting learning experience to say the least.

* The Entrance v. Avoca Beach match was washed out - postponed

A couple of interesting results on the weekend - firstly Ourimbah beating Gosford so comprehensively. Mainly because Gosford are there or thereabouts come finals time and Woy Woy giving Kariong an absolute hiding - the Lions are coming good it will be interesting to see how they go against the likes of Gosford and Terrigal in the run home.

CCRU table at halfway:
1 Ourimbah 35; 2 Avoca 33 (with a potential game in hand); 3 Terrigal 31; 4 Gosford 24; 5 Woy Woy 20; 6 Warnervale 12; 7 Northlakes 10; 8 The Entrance 10; 9 Kariong 0.

It looks like a 5 horse race for the finals with Gosford and Woy Woy battling it out for the final slot. My prediction for the final four would be 1 Avoca 2 Terrigal 3 Ourimbah 4 Woy Woy. At this point I cannot see Kariong winning a game.

As Champion said above big win by Woy Woy and they have leapfrogged Gosford on the table into the top four. Great to see my old team get up on the weekend as well - it doesn't happen very often.

Terrigal 61 (Chris King 2, Rob Richardson, Mitchell Clack, Guy Schofield, Adam Danckert, Ryan Metcalfe, Sam Kenny, Murray Stachan tries; Adam Danckert 8 conversions) d Kariong 5 (Shannon Beavan try)

I went to the Warnervale v The Entrance game and though I am an avid Rams supporter thought we were lucky to get away with the draw, though both sides were missing a significant amount of players on the day. Warnervale didn't show the Rams enough respect and the Rams players need to learn that they call it a miracle pass for a reason i.e. if it comes off it is a miracle.
The biggest result of the weekend was Woy Woy accounting for Avoca Beach fairly comfortably. Previously I have said that Avoca Beach were certainties for the title but this result has really thrown the proverbial cat amongst the winged vermin.

The big upset this week in the Illawarra was Shamrocks over Camden (yeh) after loosing the first round. It was freezing at Ocean park I'm glad it wasn't up at Bowral. Shamrocks got off to a great start and Camden didn't really recover, though they stopped the flow of point (or more the cold wind did).
Shamrocks introduction of a chicken schnitzel sandwich is a big step forward but they still need to follow Vikings example and introduce beetroot (they shouldn't follow Vikings in anything else). So far Bowral still have best steak sandwiches.

28 Jun Shamrocks 29 v 8 Camden

Good win to Ourimbah as Woy Woy have been in top form having knocked over Avoca Beach the previous week. Fantastic to see the mighty Rams have a big win over Northlakes at Joey Banks oval, disappointed I couldn't unshackle the ball and chain to watch the game.
