Ourimbah to play Lions in first rugby union round
Ourimbah will travel to Woy Woy Oval to play Woy Woy in the first round of Central Coast Rugby Union next Saturday, April 10.
"Ourimbah will go into this match as favourite based on performances from last year," said rugby union president Mr Larry Thomson.
"However, anything could happen in this match.
"Ourimbah had a disappointing end to last season when they were eliminated in the preliminary final.
"Woy Woy had a difficult season last year, so hopefully for them things have steadied and they can have a much improved year in 2021.
"Woy Woy at home are always difficult and will prove a real obstacle for Ourimbah.
"Woy Woy has a new coach this year in Wais Qalulu.
"Ourimbah has retained Matt Hopkins as coach and he has left nothing to chance in his efforts to get a great start to the season for his team.
"Ourimbah have had one of the best preparations for this season compared to all other clubs."
