CATCHING UP WITH TOMMY EVANS

By Tommy Evans

 

Another round and another successful day for the Shoremen. After a pretty good day against the Rats last weekend, it was time to follow it up against the other Northern Beaches club- the Manly Marlins.

 

FIFTH GRADE:

It was fantastic to get a fifth-grade game organised, giving more guys the opportunity to wear the red and black. In a highly entertaining affair, our boys went down after the buzzer, 24-21.

Fourth grade forwards coach Will Callanan threw the boots on and was electric on the wing, much to the delight of a female fan dancing in front of the scoreboard. Every time he did something good she removed an item of clothing in celebration, and it wasn’t long until she was looked like she belonged as Cobblers Beach. Local policeman James Knight removed himself from the fourth grade warm up to “sort out the situation”, even though there were already three cops dealing with it.

Norths 21 (Tries: #3 Nick Williams, #13 Ferdia Doherty, #10 Jack Rixon; Goals: #10 Jack Rixon 3), Manly 24

 

FOURTH GRADE:

Coming off the back of a humbling opening-round loss against Warringah, there was far more focus and intent at training during the week. Unfortunately, the preparation wasn’t enough to get our guys over the line, with Manly winning a close one, 12-8.

With many new faces in the group, the Brotherhood are taking a little longer than usual to click into gear this season, but I’m confident we’ll be back in the winner’s circle in no time.

Norths 8 (Tries: #5 Henry Mikkelsen; Goals: #10 Joe Jenkins 2), Manly 12

THIRD GRADE:

Having two senior police officers as coaches means that our 3s boys will never be in for an easy week of training. After what they were put through following their round 1 loss, I don’t think there was a team that was going to get in their way this weekend. The boys came out firing, with plenty of strong carries and big hits, all led by a steamed-up James Wivell.

Hamish Sinclair was dynamic, getting involved in anything he could get a sniff at. Unfortunately, his sniffing was impaired after he copped a whack in the nose while scoring a try. His nose was plugged and he carried on.

Norths 28 (Tries: #14 Tommy Gilbert, #5 Hamish Sinclair, #9 Josh Noonan; Goals: #10 Connor Winchester 5), Manly 17

 

SECOND GRADE:

Our twos are firing on all cylinders, with two bonus point wins in as many weeks.

It’s great to see some young guys in the team playing like seasoned veterans and I’m very excited to see what they can achieve this season.

It was remarkable to see the forwards challenge themselves in unconventional ways throughout the game. Dave Hennaway decided that the lineouts were getting too easy, so he stopped calling them completely. He explained afterwards that his intention was for his fellow pigs to tap into their intuition and try to use telepathy to run the lineouts.

As one can imagine, this didn’t work at all.

Norths 43 (Tries: #14 Angelo Leaupepe 3, #7 Hugh Taylor, #9 Harry Emery, #20 George Murrin, #22 Connor Winchester); Goals: #10 Jack Clancy 4), Manly 17

 

FIRST GRADE:

There’s nothing better than seeing our first grade team going to work on a Saturday afternoon. The Marlins are always hard to beat down at Manly Oval so getting a bonus point win down there should not be taken lightly.

We now have the Sir Roden Cutler shield in our cabinet as well, which we’ll be defending at every home game.

For years, Lawrence ‘Footy’ Hunting has never once stood in the ‘defence line’ during training drills. He’s always dreamed of throwing the perfect pass, but has very rarely found himself in such a position. All those years of hard work finally paid off on Saturday when he threw a beautiful dummy and popped Nick Palmer into open space, who in turn set Nick Duffy up with a great try.

There was a lot of man-love after the try was awarded, with everyone congratulating the two Nicks. Nobody gave poor Lawrence even a token high-five, so I would ask everyone to give him a high-five or a hug next time you see him.

Norths 25 (Tries: #2 Sam Kitchen, #9 Nick Duffy, #22 Nathan Russell, #24 JP Sauni; Goals: #10 Angus Sinclair 2)

 

COLTS:

Our Colts enjoyed their first day at home for 2018, with strong wins in 3s (27-12) and 2s (29-19). Unfortunately, 1sts’s had a reality check after their win last week, going down to a strong Manly side, 27-15.

Maclean Dombkins got the fans cheering after making another spectacular line break, his third in as many games. I’ve been told that he’s aiming for one in every game this season- seems like a logical goal for a nimble back, however, the big fella plays prop.

WOMEN’S 7s:

Our ladies went down to a very experienced Manly side, 3 tries to 2. After last weekend’s razzle-dazzle try led from a Caitlin Le Bas cross-field kick, the girls encouraged her during the game to execute it again.

Poor Caitlin was scared that last week’s effort may have been a fluke and was heard commentating to herself as she received the pass. “Should I do it? Oh, I don’t know if I should. Um, ah, ok, I’m going to do it.” She then hoofed it across the field and after a great chase by Sami and Courtney, Courtney pounced on it to score the try.

I have a feeling the girls have their new favourite attacking play.

 

TEAM OF THE WEEK:

First grade. Beating a strong Manly side away to reclaim the Sir Roden Cutler shield sets a great platform going forward. When first grade’s winning it’s contagious across the rest of the club, so keep it coming fellas.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK:

Ed Collard, 2nd-grade colts. Ed put in a massive shift on Saturday, playing nearly full two games due to an injury in 1st’s not long after kick-off. From all reports, his energy levels did not drop from start to finish, and he could even be seen shooting some hoops with local kids behind the Greens afterward.

Backing up for the next grade and giving your all for them is what Norths is all about. Well done mate!

 

This weekend we play Eastwood, with grade at home and colts out at TG Milner. The Woodies are usually quite strong across every grade, so it should be a very competitive day. Our players will also be running the sausage sizzle at Bunnings in Artarmon from 7:30am, so pop in to get a snag before you head out to support!

 

Cheers,
Tommy Evans

ON THE FIELD, WITH HUGH SINCLAIR

by Hugh Sinclair

Two from two isn’t a bad way to start the Shute Shield season but when we dig a little deeper the feeling in our playing group is that there’s still work to do and improvements to be made.

The start of the season was always going to be tough for the Shoremen taking on Warringah, Manly, Eastwood, Sydney Uni and then West Harbour in the first five weeks.

All great clubs and all well and truly in contention for a spot in the Shute Shield playoffs in 2018.

So as you can see we’ve still got work to do and improvements that need to be made.

One of the club’s mantras is that we take every opportunity to improve our rugby and that has been a constant through pre-season and first weeks of the season.

When our first grade coach Shannon Fraser took over from Simon Cron towards the end of last year he said that he was keen to add to what had been already established over a number of seasons.

No need to re-invent a wheel that seemed to be running along quite nicely over the past couple of seasons.

And that’s they way that things are working and we are sure that as 2018 matures that we will be playing a brand of rugby that is exciting and winning.

It’s Eastwood this week at North Sydney Oval and they are sure bring their aggressive style of rugby to the table.

We need to learn from the lessons of the first two rounds against Warringah and Manly to make an impression against the Woodies.

Starting well has been an issue in our first two games and taking chances when they come vital to making it three from three – as they say rugby’s a great game when you are winning.

See you at North Sydney Oval on Saturday!

THE JOURNEY SO FAR

by Camilla Cox

From six girls learning from scratch on a field at Shore Ovals to a squad of 20 on the main stage at North Sydney Oval, this is the story of the Women’s 7s journey, so far.

Preseason for the girls begun alongside the boys back in October where coach Jack Burey had a team of six to work with, not a minute of rugby experience between them. Jack’s first group of recruits was made up of first graders girlfriends and girls from the Tunks Park Touch Football Competition, all convinced they were going to play without having to make a single tackle.

As confidence grew and the word spread, the squad welcomed new players each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning and by late November the Women’s team had enough for a friendly game at the end of each session. Jack was faced with a barrage of questions from ‘when do we get our outfits?’ to ‘does it matter if we hurt the opposition?’ Skills developed at a rapid pace from passing to tackling, from rucks to kicking, the women’s team were shaping up nicely.

Late pre-season saw a few setbacks with the likes of a fractured tibia, broken fibula and torn an ACL, the team gained a few crutches and was down a few passionate players. This didn’t stop the girls; they were driven to show up at their first competition with energy and passion and ready to “rip in.”

 

 

Quicker than they knew it, development day rolled around and the girls were on at Rat Park for a round robin tournament. Nerves were high and uniforms crisp as the girls ran on against Eastern Suburbs and stole their first win for the season which saw Emma Austin score a run away try in the first few seconds of the match.

Next round saw the girls on their home turf taking on Warringah in a curtain raiser for first grade. Nick Palmers’ better half Caitlin Le Bas, put hours of viewing into practice with a stunning cross-field kick, caught by Caitlin Aqualina who placed is straight down over the try line. A disappointing loss in the end but an outstanding showcase of the quality of rugby we can expect to see from the team throughout the 2018 season.

Both on and off the field the girls have shown outstanding drive and passion for the club, getting around the boy’s teams, volunteering their time at juniors’ days and club events.  The North’s Women’s Rugby 7s team are a force to be reckoned with in 2018, watch this space!

Catch the girls on the Bunning’s BBQ this weekend alongside the boys and at their next tournament on April 28th at Coogee Oval.

MACAULEYS BEACH, COFFS HARBOUR (Tuesday, 17 April 2018): The Billabong Oz Grom Cup pres. by Flight Centre saw nine champions crowned today as competitors duked it out in an attempt to bag themselves a coveted title.
 
Ethan Hartge (Caves Beach, NSW) claimed the biggest win of his young career taking out the 16-and-Under Boys division. Despite remaining in second position to Arch Whiteman (Avalon, NSW) for a solid portion of the heat, Hartge was able to slingshot himself into the top spot thanks to posting a respectable 6.93 wave score to jump into the lead, while Whiteman was left to claim the runner-up spot.
 
Summa Longbottom (Kirra, Qld) joined Hartge in the 16-and-Under winner's circle, claiming the Girls division Longbottom was able to get a narrow lead over fellow Gold Coast surfer Shaye Leeuwendal (Currumbin, Qld) thanks to a respectable 6.00 wave score, which allowed her to claim the top spot on the dais.
 
Marlon Harrison (Coolangatta, Qld) claimed his third Billabong Oz Grom Cup pres. by Flight Centre title in as many years, taking out the 14-and-Under Boys. Harrison posted a near-perfect nine-point ride in the final minutes of the 20-minute affair to gain the upper hand over fellow event standout Lennix Smith (Barrack Point, NSW) who finished the heat in second position.
 
Despite snapping her board in her semi-final, Grace Kama (Elanora, Qld) was able to borrow her mum’s board for the 14-and-Under Girls final. Kama proceeded to execute a barrage of giant and powerful backside carves and snaps to post an excellent 8.83 wave score and get the upper hand against her opposition.
 
Willis Droomer (Jan Juc, Vic) made his interstate journey worthwhile, taking out the 12-and-Under Boys. Droomer continued to build on the exciting performances he threw down in the earlier rounds, posting a decent 14.00 heat total to get the win ahead of Mateus Bersot (Maroubra, NSW).
 
Willow Hardy (Margaret River, WA) added another title in the kitty for the interstate competitors taking out the 12 Girls division. Hardy posted a modest 6.03 wave score for a chain of forehand snaps to get the edge over Amarnie Barber (Peregian, Qld) who finished in the runner-up spot.
 
Local competitor Will Martin (Coffs Harbour, NSW) finished his Billabong Oz Grom Cup campaign with a bang, locking in a 19.00 two-wave heat total, the highest of the event so far. Martin’s score consisted of a perfect 10-point ride and a 9.00, which left his fellow competitors requiring two-wave totals to take away his lead. 
 
Paddling into waves unassisted paid dividends for Ruby Trew (Seaforth, NSW) in the 10 Girls division as she proceeded to post a perfect 10-point ride. Trew performed an eclectic mix of turns over the course of the final to amass a 17.33 heat total and take the win ahead of Oli Taylor (Peregian, Qld) who finished in second position.
 
Fletcher O’Sullivan (Sawtell, NSW) ensured a title would remain in the Coffs Harbour region, taking out the 8-and-Under Mixed division. O’Sullivan and runner-up Luca Martin (Coffs Harbour, NSW) both shone in the final with both surfers posting scores near the excellent range, however, O’Sullivan was able to get the nod thanks to a 14.34 total.
 
All results and two-wave heat totals can be found below.

The prestigious five-day event – now in its fifth year – ran from the 13th – 17th April and catered for over 200 competitors in nine different divisions.
 
Former champions include 2016 World Junior Champion Macy Callaghan who claimed her respective division in the event's inaugural year. Since then the event has been won by a range of Australia’s best and most promising junior surfers.
 
Most states were represented with surfers coming from Queensland, NSW and Victoria.
 
Boys and Girls divisions for the event included: Under-8 Mixed, Under-10, Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16.

Catching Up With Club Captain, Tommy Evans

 

What a fantastic opening round of Shute Shield rugby! The weather was perfect and North Sydney oval is looking in great nick. After a long pre-season dating back to October last year, it was great for all players to finally get out on the paddock.

4th Grade
Coming off the back of their 1st grade grand final win last year, there were rumours leading into this game that the Rats had enough numbers to fill six grades. This was evident in the strength of their 4th Grade team, with our boys going down in a tough encounter, 21-5.

We knew something was amiss when the ref hadn’t spoken to our players prior to kick-off, and sure enough, when both teams took to the field we realised that no referee had turned up. Shocked onlookers stared on in disbelief, with some being too stunned for words. One mother was heard screaming through her tears, “for the sake of us all, will somebody please do something!” Well, cometh the hour, cometh the man. Club general manager/women’s 7s supercoach, Jack Burey, pulled his whistle out of his pocket and got proceedings underway.

Norths 5 (Tries: #8 Al Hall), Warringah 21.

 

 

3rd Grade 
Third grade went to battle with the reigning premiers from 2017, and despite some very good passages of play, went down 31-14. With the mercury hitting nearly 30 degrees, Josh Clifton can be forgiven for thinking he was supposed to be playing cricket. He bowled some fine wrong’uns and the odd off-breaker into the lineout, much to the dismay of his jumpers.

This Norths side has some very fine players in it, with some no doubt due to get game time in 1st grade during the season. After a little bit more time to gel as a group, I’m very confident that they’ll be bloody hard to beat.

Norths 14 (Tries: #13 Daniel Hiep, #9 Joshua Noonan; Goals: #10 Connor Winchester 2), Warringah 31.

 

2nd Grade
I think everyone was starting to get a bit tense after a less than ideal start to the day. However, our nerves were quickly eased with 2nd grade coming out with guns blazing. Inside centre Nic Clancy has had a big off-season, spending hours upon hours in the gym bulking himself up. I wasn’t quite sure if he was planning a transition into the forwards, however his selection at 12 put that question to bed. He still couldn’t help himself during the game though, running in from the backline to join a rolling maul that was doing just fine without him. After stealing the ball off our Portuguese hooker, Duarte Diniz, he bagged a meat pie normally reserved for the pigs.

Norths 45 (Tries: #4 Declan Carroll, #7 Hugh Taylor, #12 Nic Clancy, #2 Duarte Diniz, #24 Danny Allende, #22 Connor Winchester, #23 Matthew White; Goals: #10 Jack Clancy 5), Warringah 17

 

1st Grade
Being a grand final rematch, 1st grade was always going to be a huge game. Even after kick-off, the entry gates were still ticking over as hundreds of people rolled in to watch. It was a real grind for both sides, but after two bits of Woolfy magic, the good guys got up 27-18

Norths 27 (Tries: #14 Richie Woolf 2, #20 Taylor Francis; Goals: #10 Angus Sinclair 5), Warringah 18

Colts
Our colties had a very successful evening at Rat Park, getting up in both 1s (10-7) and 2s (40-0) and narrowly going down in 3s (26-19). Rumour has it that 2nd colts’ backs coach, Nick Marshall, could be heard singing the team song all the way from Warriewood Beach.

Women’s 
Our new women’s sevens team also put in a shift, featuring in a tournament on Bon Andrews Oval involving teams from all around Sydney. They won the first game of the day against Eastern Suburbs, however went down in their remaining three matches. Captain Ash Moore couldn’t have been prouder of her girls, delivering a powerful speech out the back of the Union that evening. I’ve been told that those who were fortunate enough to hear it were moved to tears.

 

TEAM OF THE WEEK:

2nd colts. 40 points scored at Rat Park is a huge effort, but even better is the big 0 for points conceded. I love a clean score sheet.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK:

Joe Dawson, 2nd grade. Big Joe had a blinder in 2nd grade’s big win, bringing a contagious enthusiasm to the team that he is so famous for. His herculean efforts in the scrum set the platform for the backs to run riot, all done with that trademark grin on his face. For those that don’t know him, Joe spent the majority of last season playing off the bench in 4th grade. It goes to show that with a bit of hard work and persistence, there’s always an opportunity at Norths to go up the grades.

 

This weekend we take on the Manly Marlins down at Manly Oval, with the colties playing at home on Bon A

ndrews. It will be ‘Parents Day’ at the colts games, with all mums and dads encouraged to come along to support our lads. In the evening we will be having our team dinners in Crows Nest, which is always a highlight of the year. Don’t be too surprised to see players wandering between Willoughby Rd and the Union in all sorts of costumes…

Cheers,

Tommy
