1 Sep preview
Only two Sharks teams on the field this weekend. Unfortunately both kickoff at the same time, 10am Saturday. At Woy Woy Oval the u19s are playing Woy Woy in the major semi aiming to be the first team into the Grand Final (see separate post for the squad). At Heazlett we are hosting the Juniors preliminary finals and it is our u12s looking to bounce back from last weeks loss in the major semi, hoping to defeat Ourimbah to earn a spot in the Grand Final at Central Coast Stadium. Make your choice, get on all of your Club and get to a ground to give loud support to our players! If you start at Woy Woy, get back to Heazlett to watch the other Junior games. The quality of the Rugby is sensational and you get to see the 1st Graders of the future. Our u15s girls team will be playing a demo game at 12:20, you probably havent seen them at their friday night games,this is a great opportunity to see how well they are playing. Good luck to both our teams in the finals! Cheers Boys & Girls!
Congratulations to Nathaniel Thomas from our u12s, named in the NSW PSSA squad today. Fantastic reward for this young man, there are a few handy players in his family tree ...
26 Aug review
The final game for the Sharks this finals weekend was the u15s playing Woy Woy in the elimination semi final. A fast start from their opponents and the boys were quickly a couple of tries behind. They then lifted and and by half time were only trailing 10-17 and were right in the contest. Second half was more of the high quality play from both teams. We missed some good opportunities to score and they took all of their chances with it finishing at 10-27. A great performance all season from these u14 boys playing against older opposition most of the time in the combined u14/u15 competition. All involved should be very proud of their efforts and they will all be better players next season from the experience they have gained this year. Cheers Boys
Congratulations to Summer Witt from our Womens 7s team. She has been invited to a training camp for the Australian Youth 7s. That camp is part of the development program that eventually leads to the selection of an Australian 7s team to compete in the World Schools tournament in NZ at the end of the year. Summer has benefited from the wonderful coaching and mentorship of Inge Visser, our team's Internationally experienced captain/coach who has led all of the team to great improvement over the season. She is the youngest player in our team, still eligible for the u17s, and improving every game as a central player in the team structure. Playing in the local comp Summer came to the attention of Hugh Carpenter as part of his talent development role at Rugby Australia and he identified that her potential merited higher opportunities like the one she has now been offered. It is well deserved recognition of where her game is at now, and how far her talent may take her in Rugby 7s!
