1st Grade Rugby Report Saturday May 28th
The Central Coast Rugby Union competition certainly opened up further this weekend after the matches in Round 8. The results have thrown open the Premier 1 competition and it is developing into one of the closest and most interesting Premiership title races in many years. No team in the competition can be taken for granted at this stage and most teams still have a chance of reaching the Top Four.
Woy Woy scored a very convincing win over Hornsby at Mark Taylor Oval running out winners by 51 points to 7. They were always in control and never looked in doubt of gaining a very pleasing win. Woy Woy led by 36 points to nil at the halftime break so the match was all tied up even at that stage. Hornsby did fight back at the start of the second half and to Hornsby’s great credit, that second stanza was a far more even struggle. However the damage had already been done on the scoreboard.
Best players for Woy Woy were Chris Paseka, Sione Toki and Lapana Vitale while Sam White and Ben Astley gave their all for the home team. This was a good win to Woy Woy and cements their position in the Top four.
