The 2024 Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with Round 4 in the WLG Premier 1 series of matches. The continuing wet weather affected the playing of several matches, mainly the lower grades and the Women.

The WLG Premier 1 Match of the Day between Avoca Beach and Terrigal was postponed to next weekend to the ground conditions.

The match between Warnervale and Lake Macquarie at Boolaroo resulted in a seesawing battle from start to finish. Warnervale kicked a penalty goal on fulltime to defeat Lake Macquarie by the narrowest of margins, 35 points to 34. It was a great game of rugby. Lake Macquarie had the better of the start of match and it was in the first few minutes that they had crossed for their first try. In fact, Lake Macquarie dominated the first half of the match. Their backline was dangerous with the ball in hand and were able to make several holes in the Warnervale defence. They went on continuous attack and in the first half had crossed for four tries. They had everything under control. Warnervale did score their single try midway through the first half but the first 40 minutes was all Lake Macquarie. Lake Macquarie went to the halftime break leading by 29 points to 8. Whereas the first half was dominated by Lake Macquarie, the second half was all Warnervale. They were quick to respond at the start of the second half and were able to cross for four tries in the second stanza. Warnervale posted 27 points in the second half while Lake Macquarie only responded with the single try. Warnervale dominated possession in the second half and as a result were able to continually cross for tries. The final few minutes of the match were very exciting. Warnervale crossed for their fourth try in the half to take the lead by 32 points to 29 before Lake Macquarie scored their lone try in the half as a result of a great cross field kick. They took the lead 34 points to 32 but it was Warnervale who kicked a penalty goal at the 80th minutes mark to take the victory. Best players for Warnervale were flanker Matt Piukala, centre Sione Piukala and halfback Sam Hunt. Lake Macquarie were best served by halfback Brendan Holliday, five-eight Rhys Cawley and centre Isaako Enosa. Both teams proved they will be a threat for all teams this season.

Ourimbah Rugby Park witnessed a one-sided tussle when the Razorbacks accounted for Woy Woy by 85 points to 0. It was one way traffic for the entire 80 minutes. The Razorbacks scored consistently for the entire match, going to the halftime break leading by 40 points to nil. They had the match all locked even at that stage. They were able to post a further 45 points in the second half to secure a most comfortable victory. A feature of the match was the 22 individual points scored by Jarrod Grange. Woy Woy had no answer on the day. Best players for the Razorbacks were flanker Rob Peden, who crossed for three tries, fullback Connor Moran and No.8 Lachlan Peruch. Woy Woy gave it their all and were best served by five-eight Guy Blades, hooker Hunter Jackson-Sullivan and Tim Cook.

The CCRU Women’s 12’s competition was postponed to next week because of the damp conditions of the grounds.

In the President’s Cup competition, Kariong defeated the Razorbacks, and Lake Macquarie defeated Warnervale.
