The 2024 Central Coast Rugby Union season continued with Round 11 in the WLG Premier 1 series of matches.

Terrigal and Avoca Beach played each other in the seaside derby and it was Terrigal who came out victorious by 30 points to 7. It was an excellent performance by the Terrigal team and the win sees them remain undefeated this season. This is always a huge clash between these two teams and this encounter was no different. Terrigal got away to a great start with an early converted try. In some ways this set the tone for the rest of the match. Terrigal were able to maintain the attack and Avoca Beach found much difficulty in defending against this attack. Terrigal followed up the early try with another, and with a penalty goal also kicked midway through the first half, the home side had jumped to a very handy 17 points to nil lead. In a match like this, such a lead was most handy to say the least. Terrigal were able to post their third try just prior to halftime, to go to a 24 points to nil lead at the halftime break. It was a most dominant half of rugby by the Terrigal team. Avoca Beach tried everything in the second half. They did cross for their lone try during the second half but it was not enough of course to bridge the gap on the scoreboard. They did also keep Terrigal tryless in the second half but the strong performance by the home side in the first half was the difference. Best players for Terrigal were prop Tom Leslie, flanker Eddie Bookallil, lock Joe Taylor and hooker Ethan McInnes. Avoca Beach were best served by lock Emile Thomas, No.8 Lachlan Thomas, hooker Cooper Elliott, centre Alex Halls and winger Tyler Park. The win sees Terrigal cement their spot at the top of the competition ladder, while Avoca Beach drop to third spot due to the loss.

Lake Macquarie travelled to Woongarrah Oval to meet home team Warnervale but it was Warnervale who won the day by 26 points to 7. It was a tight struggle throughout but it was Warnervale who just always had their nose in front on the scoreboard. Warnervale got away to the better start with an early converted try to lead by 7 points to nil. Lake Macquarie however were not to be outdone and they quickly responded with their own try to make the score 7 all. The rest of the first half see-sawed from one end of the field to the other and both teams did find it most difficult to bridge the defences of the other team. Warnervale did break though however for the second try late in the half to go the halftime break leading by 14 points to 7. It was an evenly fought first half but it the home side who had the lead at the break. Warnervale continued to control things in the second stanza. They were able to post a further 12 points in the second half while at the same time keeping the visitors scoreless. Best performers for Warnervale were outside centre Keegan Quakawoot, fullback Sione Braxton and flanker Tevita Piukala. Lake Macquarie had several good performances but none were better than that of halfback Tui Fotu-Moala and centre Ifan Hunmam. The win sees Warnervale cement their fourth spot on the competition ladder.

Woy Woy played host to the Razorbacks at Woy Woy Oval in what proved a quite high scoring match. The Razorbacks gained the victory over Woy Woy by 51 points to 19. Woy Woy opened the scoring in the match, in the start they wanted. Their early converted try saw them lead by 7 points to nil. However, the lead did not last long. The Razorbacks were quick to respond and they were soon over for their first try. The Razorbacks then maintained the attack and were able to cross for a further four tries in the half to go to a very handy 29 points to 7 lead at the halftime interval. The Razorbacks continued to control proceedings in the second half and were able to post a further 22 points in the second half. However, to Woy Woy’s great credit they never gave up. They were able to cross for two converted tries in the second half and in fact the scoreline in the final 40 minutes was Razorbacks 22 Woy Woy 14. It was a quite evenly fought second half. Best players for the Razorbacks were winger Kumudika Gunaratne, No.8 Lachlan Peruch, back Ashton Hutchinson-Waters and five-eight Owen Turner. Woy Woy were best served by lock Tali Sitani, fullback Jacob Mills, and prop Daniel King. However, the win sees the Razorbacks leapfrog Avoca Beach and they move into second spot on the competition ladder.
