Woy Woy beaten in 'most exciting' rugby union match

Woy Woy were beaten by The Lakes during their Round 4 clash in the Central Coast Rugby Union Competition on May 4.

Central Coast Rugby Union media officer Mr Larry Thomson described the match as the most exciting of the round, with the lead changing several times throughout.

"In a match which was played with plenty of action, also hard fought and in great spirit, the lead in this match changed six times throughout the 80 minutes," Mr Thomson said.

"The scoring started early when The Lakes crossed for a well-worked try in the opening five minutes and this five points to nil lead remained the status quo for the first 20 minutes.

"That first quarter of the match saw some free flowing rugby with both teams taking their respective attacks from one end of the field to the other.

"The Woy Woy set piece was strong and was a feature of the match, while The Lakes' outside backs were always dangerous with the ball in hand.

"At the 21st minute, Woy Woy scored their first try in the match with a great forwards try to flanker Veipuleki Siale.

"Siale was outstanding in this match.

"He was strong and always dangerous, and his efforts resulted in him crossing for three tries," Mr Thomson said.

"Woy Woy, soon after, scored their second try, and at the 24th minute had taken the lead in the clash by 12 points to 5.

"From this point on, it was a try fest.

"The two teams basically went try for try for the remainder of the match.

"In the remaining 15 minutes of the half, The Lakes were able to cross for two converted tries to Woy Woy's single try.

"At the halftime break The Lakes had jumped to a narrow lead of 19 points to 17," Mr Thomson said.

"Woy Woy regained the lead again very early in the second half with a great try, but soon after it was The Lakes' turn to take the lead.

"It was like this for next 40 minutes.

"The first two tries, one each from either team, were posted in the first six minutes of the start of the second half.

"With under 15 minutes to go, Woy Woy led by 31 points to 26, but even at that stage the crowd knew that the result was far from settled.

"The Lakes scored with time running out to lead 33 points to 31 and this score line remained the score until right on fulltime when The Lakes crossed for their final try to confirm the win 40 points to 31.

"This was a great game of rugby played by two committed teams and could have gone either way," Mr Thomson said.

"There were some wonderful efforts in this match by Woy Woy players.

"Woy Woy five-eight Wade Hannell, was outstanding and had a great game directing his backline.

"He was very well supported by Siale, half back Damon Boxsell, centre and lineout jumper Kane Burns, prop Luke Ingold and lock Jack Dewar."
