First country trial at Woy Woy
The Central Coast rugby union team played its first trial game for the NSW Country Championships at Woy Woy Oval on Saturday, March 10.
The team was matched against Parramatta, and though Parramatta was victorious 29 points to 7, the Central Coast team's spokesman Mr Larry Thomson said that the standard of play from both teams was outstanding.
Central Coast started strongly and led seven points to nil after 20 minutes.
However, Parramatta scored midway through the first half to level the score line as the players headed into the halftime break.
From this point onward, Parramatta gradually got ahead and gained the ascendancy late in the game thanks to an effective backline.
Mr Thomson said that standout players for the Central Coast were the lock Peter Steele, prop Shannon Beavan, half back Josh Holman and five-eight Mitch Graham.
The Central Coast will take on the Far North Coast in the first round of the NSW Country Championships at Lismore on March 24.
