The Wyong Roos Thread

Recommended Posts

For those that don't know I'm a Old Boy Wyong Kangaroo from the late 80's to mid 90's and still have a keen interest in how they are going. Since the Roos elevation into NSW Cup the interest has increased even further and this will be the thread where I'll share results and any news I get off the Roos website or hear through some contacts.

 

Results from this weekend:

NSW Cup - Wyong lost to Cronulla 16-38
1st Grade - Wyong lost to Terrigal 10-28
Reserves - Wyong def Terrigal 32-16
Opens - Wyong def Terrigal 48-8
U/19s - Wyong def Terrigal 20-10

Next week Wyong face Manly at Brooky in NSW Cup and in the CC Comp the boys take on Berkeley Vale away in all grades.

EDIT....except for the U/19's who play Umina away.

BRONCOS SIGN EXPERIENCED HALF
BRONCOS.COM.AU
 – MAY 22, 2014POSTED IN: BRISBANE BRONCOSDARREN NICHOLLSNEWSPLAYER MOVEMENTS
 

darren-nichols.jpg?c88f3a

The Brisbane Broncos have nabbed an experienced half from out of the South Sydney Rabbitohs’ system to provide cover for the Broncos stocks.

Darren Nicholls was stuck behind South Sydney guns John Sutton and Adam Reynolds as he awaited a crack at the NRL last year.

He captained the Rabbitohs' reserve grade side, the North Sydney Bears, into the semi-finals, and was named as five-eighth and captain of the 2013 NSW Cup Team of the Year.

Wests Tigers junior, Nicholls now finds himself in the Broncos' squad after the club grabbed him before the June 30 cut-off date.

Arriving last week, Nicholls slid in straight away, steering affiliate club the Norths Devils to a victory over the impressive PNG Hunters in the Queensland Cup last Sunday.

 
 

Now he is focussing on working hard in the Broncos' squad and awaiting a chance.

 

 

 

What's this Nicholls bloke like Mr Chook ? Read somewhere he was playing for Wyong when we signed him.

The article said about as much as i know about him TBH. My old man was telling me he was going well at Wyong and were sorry to see him go but the club will never stand in the way of a possible NRL career for anyone and let him go.

 

A shame for Wyong, we were stringing a few wins together and on the cusp of the Top 8. The Roos haven't won a game since he departed.

 

Good luck to him but I'd be surprised if he cracks the NRL side over Hunt at #7 and Milford next year at #6.

Sydney Roosters form alliance with Central Coast Division Rugby League

 

 

With the endorsement of the Country Rugby League, the Sydney Roosters is pleased to announce the formation of an alliance with Central Coast Division Rugby League.

Through the partnership, the Sydney Roosters will provide a series of talent development pathways and participation development initiatives for local players, coaches, support staff, match officials and administrators as well as the formation of a secondary affiliation with Wyong Rugby League Club Group through its NSWRL Cup participation. The Roosters primary affiliation with the Newtown Jets NSWRL Cup Club will remain unchanged.

“This is an exciting alliance for both the Sydney Roosters and the Central Coast Division Rugby League,” said Sydney Roosters Chief Operating Officer Football, Brian Canavan.

“With more than 4,500 juniors and 1,000 seniors participating in rugby league across the region, this alliance and secondary affiliation will provide all levels of Central Coast Division Rugby League participation with a visible and direct link to an NRL club, encouraging players and officials to remain in the region, increase participation and showcase rugby league as a leading sport,” he added.

Sydney Roosters five-eighth James Maloney is a product of the Central Coast, having played for the St Edwards and Ourimbah Clubs, and has endorsed this exciting new partnership.

“I consider myself really lucky to have grown up on the Central Coast, it’s a region that loves its rugby league,” said Maloney.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to pursue a career in the NRL, and with the Central Coast continuing to grow the way it is, it’s great that aspiring footy players and officials can have this direct pathway to a professional career through this new partnership with the Roosters,” he added.

The Sydney Roosters will continue with its existing relationship with the Woy Woy Junior and Senior Rugby League associations, while the club also sponsored the Central Coast Senior Representative program in 2013.

Further info on the affiliation with the Roosters....

 

Friday 30 May 2014 marked a watershed for the game on the Central Coast and for Wyong Roos rugby league program, with the formalisation of a strategic alliance between CRL Central Coast Division and the Sydney Roosters, and a secondary affiliation between the foundation NRL club and Wyong Roos.

The agreement, announced at Central Coast Stadium Gosford, for the first time anywhere, brings together three major regional stakeholders, CRL/CCD Rugby League (Seniors and Juniors), Central Coast Centurions Representative Program, and Wyong Leagues Club Group as principal sponsor of that representative program and as the only stand alone operator of a VB NSW Cup license, into a cohesive alliance with an NRL Club to provide local players, officials and support staff with the same opportunities afforded those currently playing and working within an NRL system.

For elite Central Coast players there will be an established pathway from the Centurions S G Ball team into the Roosters NYC Under 20 squad. Those aspirational players not fortunate enough to be selected for the Roosters NYC squad will be able to continue their development on the Central Coast, resourced and overseen to a large degree by the Roosters, and will have the opportunity to progress in a parallel system through Ron Massey Cup with The Entrance and NSW Cup with Wyong. Sydney Roosters NRL side will enjoy the luxury of player portability with the Roos. Whilst the Roosters relationship with it’s primary affiliate, Newtown Jets, will remain unchanged, local fans and supporters can expect to see a number of players contracted with the Roosters warehoused with Wyong and turning out for the Roos in the VB NSW Cup, and for some local players to undertake pre-season training and specialist skills sessions with the Roosters.

But the relationship does not only benefit elite players. Recreational players, local clubs (senior and junior) and administrators will have access to the Roosters management, coaching and development expertise and injury management processes. Roosters stars will be available for club functions, coach the coaches and player development days, and will supplement the programs already established and supported by Wyong Roos.

The formalisation of the arrangement is consistent with the NRL Strategic Plan and the Central Coast Division Strategic Plan, and is the culmination of multiple meetings and lengthy negotiations between Roosters CEO Brian Canavan, CRL management (Terry Quinn and Bert Lowrie), CRL Regional Area Manager Keith Onslow, Centurions Management (Tony Brosnan) and members of the Wyong Roos Football Committee, including Coach Taylor and Football Manager Matt Lavin.

With this secondary affiliation and strategic alliance as the platform, Wyong Roos look forward to the day when the Roosters NYC squad comprises mainly Central Coast juniors, and the Roos NSW Cup squad competes for the title with a playing group drawn from Central Coast juniors.

Coach Taylor spoke at the announcement

“When I recruit players, they always ask.. but where to from here (Wyong)? Now I can say, the Roosters. They will be looking at you….and if you’re good enough…. The pathway is there for all local kids. But hopefully it will be much more than that. Local clubs will get assistance with injuries…rehab and prehab. Development programs, the referees and administrators will be better supported. The advantages that people within an NRL system have enjoyed in the past will now be there for the Central Coast.”

Sydney Roosters will contribute to a Game Building Fund to be administered by CRL for the exclusive benefit of CCD rugby league. The monies will be utilised for a number of important projects, first of which will be the establishment of a comprehensive CCD website.

Brian Canavan stated; “This agreement will be for the balance of this season, 2015 and 2016. But we hope it will be long term.”

Tune in peeps the game is on Fox right now.

Wyong lead 12-4 at half time against the Warriors and are unlucky not to be ahead by more. Wyong were clearly the better side in the first half with all the field position. Coach Rip Taylor will be simply wanting more of the same in the second half and we should be able to put them away.

Roosters end Jets Affiliation

 

The Roosters have confirmed they will conclude their nine-year affiliation with NSW Cup outfit Newtown Jets at the end of the 2014 season.

The decision brings to a close the fruitful relationship between two of the game's foundation clubs, with the Roosters set to pursue a formal agreement with Wyong for 2015 in a bid to take advantage of the Central Coast's status as a key rugby league nursery.

Newtown's alliance with the Roosters has proved a successful one in recent seasons, culminating in the Roosters’ 2013 premiership triumph, while the Jets claimed the NSW Cup title a year earlier also progressed to the second week of last year's finals series.

The news comes on the back of an alliance the Roosters made earlier in the year with the entire Central Coast Division Rugby League, in which the NRL outfit outlined plans to implement a series of development pathways and participation initiatives for the 5500 registered players, coaches and officials associated with the division.

Nice to get a win up after a couple of lean weeks. Solid effort against Wenty. Recent recruit and former bad-boy Knight Zane Tetevano got MOTM.

 

NSW Cup - Wyong def Wentworthville 30-22

No games for the other grades due to a catch up week for earlier washed out games.
