CENTRAL COAST SCHOOLBOYS RUGBY TEAM TRAVELS TO DUBBO FOR NSW RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Central Coast Senior Schools rugby team travels to Dubbo this week for the NSW CHS Schools Rugby Championships. The matches will be played from Wednesday, 23rd May until Friday 25th May. It is an intense week of schoolboy rugby where 12 teams from all across NSW compete for the CHS Championship. The week also sees the selection of NSW Schools teams, and these teams will play further matches later in the year against GPS, Combined Catholic Colleges and ISA.
The Central Coast team is coached by Brett Marchant from Berkeley Vale Campus and Andrew Collins from Gorokan High School. They have trained for the last few months and have had a good build up to these Championships. They played a good trial against Sydney North West and have gradually built up towards these titles. The team hopes to do well as a team but also hopefully to get some players selected in one of the NSW state teams.
The team travels to Dubbo by bus on Tuesday for matches over the following three days.
The team were presented with new rugby jumpers for the Championships by the Central Coast Seagulls Golden Oldie Rugby Club. These were handed over last week by senior club officials. This donation greatly assists these players in their pathway to possible higher honours. The jumpers were presented to Team Captain, John Paterson, by club stalwarts Bruce Clarke, Owen Edwards and Brett Smith.
