This season a new trophy between the two Clubs was created, honouring two foundation members of our Clubs. The Steve Woods-Andy Hoban Seniors Cup being awarded to the Club ahead on aggregate points through all 4 grades on the day. Leading into 1sts the Sharks were 3pts behind, so something extra on the line when the big boys ran out. We got away to a quick start and the 14-0 lead looked like the beginning of a much bigger result. But things didn't turn out that way and tries either side of half time to Warnervale had the score at 14-10. It stayed that way deep into the 2nd half before a penalty eased some, but not all of the pressure. The defence held up and we walked off with a 17-10 win. Tries to Stephen Lamb (try scoring machine!) & Emile Thomas, 2 conversions and a penalty to Dylan Hardaker. 3pts to Emile, 2pts Chad Martin, 1pt and players player to Blake Jacob. We claimed the Woods-Hoban Cup and thanks to all the Warnervale boys who came back for the presentations and a few drinks.
Next week - tough away games v Woy Woy at Ettalong.
