Woy Woy plays away in rugby union
Woy Woy played the first round of the 2017 Rugby Union season away to Kariong on Saturday, April 1.
Woy Woy were finalists last year and Kariong were unfortunate to miss out on the finals series.
The round one match was expected to be close and Woy Woy were keen to make amends for their disappointing end to the previous season.
Woy Woy have appointed two new co-coaches in John Stokie and Chris Schaumkel.
These two coaches were very successful with the club's Premier 2 team last year when they took out the Premiership in that grade, so quite a few of those players will more than likely make an appearance in the top grade this year.
Kariong are always strong at home, and went into the round one clash as very slight favourites.
Kariong's new coach, Chris Downie, was most keen to start the season on a high.
