Summer of 7’s – Kiama Preview

The Men’s & Women’s 7’s teams will fly the flag for the first time together at this weekend’s annual Kiama 7’s.

While the Sirens have been playing alongside the Men’s XV’s for some time now, this weekend represents the first time both teams will compete in 7’s at the same tournament.

After the Shoremen played a fortnight ago at Hamilton, the Sirens got their season underway last week at Lak Macquire, unfortunately going down in all matches to First Nations, Manly, Syndey Uni and Nelson Bay.

The Shoremen will get their Kiama campaign underway early with a 9 am start against Western Sydney Two Blues before taking on Petersham  (12noon) and a rematch with Warringah (2:30 pm) to round out the pool stages.

Needing to top the pool to move onto the play off’s, starting fast and controlling the match tempo will be crucial in all three matches.

The return of key forward Hugh Taylor is a huge inclusion for the Shoremen with an elite engine, Hugh’s big minutes will be crucial later in the tournament along with Sam Giltrap who was the standout a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile, the Sirens will bounce back to face Gungahlin Eagles (10:45 am), Warringah (1:30 pm) and Eastern Suburbs (4:15 pm)

#Live –  Catch all the action from the Kiama Sevens. Live Streaming from 8.15am at Chittick Oval.

Women’s Summer 7’s – Tournament 1 Preview

The Northern Suburbs Siren’s 7s kick off their 2020 as they head toward the annual Lake Macquaire 7’s over the weekend.

Having slogged out their first full pre-season in Sydney’s hot and smokey summer, the girls are in a good position to perform strongly at the tournament.

As this group of players returns for their second season, the recent training block has been immensely beneficial for the girls to accelerate their skills and knowledge of the game.

Rollback 12 months, when there was a handful of girls training, learning the rules and playing contact sport the first time. This group has progressed in leaps and bounds.

The progress throughout season 2019 was evident as 1st-year player Mel Steer was invited to the UTS AON squad on the back of solid performances throughout the season.

Getting to train alongside a number of players with National experience, what Mel has been able to bring back to the Norths training environment has been pure gold, with regard to the exposure of what is required to progress to the next level.

While all the progress is great, the girls will face some fierce opposition this week matching up in their pool alongside Randwick Magic and Manly Mermaids, with First Nations, Nelson bay and Sydney University on the other side of the draw

Meanwhile, the Shoremen 7’s narrowly missed the playoff stages of last week’s Hamilton 7’s. Narrowing going down to Warringah 15-7 before accounting for Gordon 2, 31-0. Requiring a win over West Harbour to reach the semi-finals, the Shoremen fell 19-12 after leading 12-0 at the break.

Both the Shoremen 7’s and Sirens 7’s will be in action on Feb 29th at the annual Kiama 7’s.

Shoremen’s 7’s

Men’s Summer 7’s – Tournament 1 Preview

Having performed well in the 2019 Spring 7’s series, the Northern Suburbs Shoremen head into their first task of the summer this weekend.

The Mick ‘Whale’ Curry 7’s up at Hamilton is the first of 2 tournaments to be played this preseason.

While a raft of players are unavailable it is a new look team from the team who ran around in November and December.

The team features a mix of experienced older players, some solid 1st grade players and a sprinkle of young talent that has joined the club.

The most pleasing thing about the 7’s program is the opportunity it provides across a number of avenues. Younger players are able to gain great experience from senior players like 1st Grade Fullback Sam Giltrap, while Charlie Radford a first year colts player fresh from Nudgee College (Brisbane) is able to jump straight into playing with his new club and teammates.

As well as a player like Connor Winchester, who got some valuable experience in first grade throughout 2019 has launched himself into the preseason and is in great physical shape, the 7s program provides him an opportunity to continue to develop his skills in a raw format and under real game pressure.

The Shoremen will face 3 tough pool games as they aim to progress to the cup semi finals. First up it will be Warringah, followed by Gordon Green and finishing with West Harbour who we shared many battles with through the 2019 series.

Meet New Recruit – Heinrich Brendel

Meet Heinrich Brendel, the rugby gypsy who has played rugby in his native South Africa, Ireland, and Italy in the past 3 seasons. Now for season 2020 has found his way to Northern Suburbs and can’t wait to run out onto North Sydney Oval.

Having experienced Australia’s extreme heat followed by extreme rain conditions. It has certainly been interesting since arriving in Australia.
“Camp over the weekend was good, not the greatest weather but we still got through a lot of our work”.

The backrower has already shown his proficiency around the tackle and points to his work rate, high standards and the breakdown as strong areas of his game.

I’m extremely excited to play in the Shute Shield and be a part of a great club with so much history and tradition is a massive thing already but obviously to get some silverware will be the ultimate.
