Our Ladies Days

In 2024 we are competing in the Sub-District 2nd Division, comprising 3 Senior men's teams, plus one Colts.

The Ladies will play again - for the Joy Johnson Cup having won it last year in it's inaugural year. 

Seven-a-side Mens Competitions in February...

Training has already commenced for this with coach Angus James writing...

We start 7s training tomorrow night (Dec 11 2023) at 530pm at Porters. The following week it will be tuesday and thursday at 530 at Porters before a break until after NY. We have 23 signed up, but happy for others to join if you want some pre season fitness. We can only play 14 in a tournament so spots will be highly sought after. We are playing the Hamilton 7s(10 Feb) and warringah 7s(17 Feb) and possibly/unlikely Kiama (24 Feb).

Thanks to those 70 odd guys and girls who have replied to the Teamlist availability email on playing intentions for 2024. 60 confirmed players so far for 2024.

If you haven't replied, please do so now. If you haven't got an email, check your junk mail and if nothing is there message me with your best email address (we have had some data issues transferring across to the new system). Ditto , if you have a mate who wants to play, message me his/her details.

IF YOU DON'T REPLY TO THE EMAIL YOU WILL KEEP GETTING THEM UNTIL I DELETE YOUR RECORD (pre Christmas deadline). IF YOU ARE UNSURE, JUST TICK THAT BOX TO KEEP GETTING INFORMATION. Thanks

So why are we hassling you sooo early - we need to order training gear and also make sure we have all positions well covered to dominate in 2024 - if you don't reply we will under order gear. Thanks in advance for the help.

Happy Christmas and NY all.

Another Cup!

Newport's Colts brought home the Robertson Cup, with a 14 -12 victory against Lindfield at the new Concord Oval on Saturday.

With our girls already holding the Joy Johnson Cup, we can be very happy with our season - considering difficult beginnings. 

Our Barraclough Cup (1st Grade) side went down to Lindfield 25 - 5, submitting to 25 points against a high wind in the 1st half, but should be proud to have won the 2nd half 5 - 0.

Vice President Alan Jones wrote...

Colties certainly played with aplomb all day but the panic stations set in when Junior Wilco was binned with 8 to go..

Our wonderful scrum absorbed the punishment and we ran out joyful winners..

Credit to Hanley as the Robertson Medal winner following on from Groomy as the Barraclough Medal winner 2022..

History being made just like Sarah winning the Joy Johnson Medal and our wonderful gorgeous girls winning the Joy Johnson Cup..

Tough for Barraclough defending a heavy South Wester breeze in the 1st half..

Played strong but the Soldiers just capitalised on field position..

Won the 2nd half 5 nil with superb and judicious kicking from the Allen Bros..

Plus a magnificent opportunistic try from Baumy in the corner..

We can all hold our heads and achievements this season high..

From a great start to the season and then losing players from injuries and travel we certainly came home STRONG..

Certainly augers well for next season..

Colts Skipper Tom Donahoe leads his team out through Newport, then Hills supporters

Below - Can't publish "Hit of the Year" yet,

But, Seva Rokoduru and Jed Cram get my vote for "Clean out of the year"  in the Barraclough Cup Grand Final...

In the previous week..

 JED's CALL OUT...

Massive training attendance at Porters tonight.

Jed is calling for an equally massive attendance of supporters for our Grand Finals at Concord on Saturday.

Two buses - details below - hop on eveyone!

Time for a beer or two with your mates between Colts and 1st grade. It's a fantastic new venue and should all be a Blast.

HISTORIC!

Both the Colts (Robertson Cup) and 1st Grade (Barraclough Cup) registered wins against UNSW to reach the Grand Finals next Saturday 19 August 2023 at the new Concord Oval complex.

Colts Kick off at: 11.40 am.  1sts Kick off at: 3.00 pm.

Colts got home 10-8 whilst we thought 1sts had it won 25-24 in the 80th minute.

 

BUT! - It went on to the 93rd minute! with UNSW adopting a policy of taking penalty after penalty as scrums (they had a heavier pack).

Finally Newport's loose head prop Max Fletcher was yellow carded though he gained a B&F point for a massively gutsy effort.

Facing a forfeit if we couldn't contest the scrums - Jed Cram ran on to hold a scrum that finally satisfied the Ref.

AND THEN!  UNSW spun the ball out for 32 tackles - finally infringing at Newport's line.  Newport's 5/8 Jeremy Allen had only to kick it out for the gutsiest win most of us have ever seen.

Both Colts and 1sts will face Lindfield in the Grand Finals and two supporters buses will be available from Porter Reserve at 10.10am and 10.30am.

Cost this time: $20 return.

Kick offs as said: 11.40am and 3.00pm.    

Here's a very short clip of two scrums near the end of the game...

Below: Newport's 1st Grade Lock - Ek Lambert-leplastrier breaks from a maul and shows his intent - for the try he is about to score under the posts.

Below are AJ's excellent words - taken from Facebook.

I think he should have the last say on the day...

Alan Jones is at Bantry Reserve.

BLOOD LINES RUN DEEP.

What a magnificent performance by our beloved Mighty Newport Breakers today @Concord..

First up with Colties having a classic win with Riley Wilson leading the way in a performance that just personified his father Luke's efforts in bringing home the Kentwell Cup back in 99..

Monster game by everyone and the Old Soldiers will be concerned with our abilities..

But Barraclough..

As defending Premiers we were always in the game..

Equal at half time and a master stroke by Simon and Jimmy getting in the sheds for strategy with the Southerly behind us..

Once again the Allen Bros delivered the goods in spades..

Superb kicking for field position was perfect..

UNSW was in panic mode..

Our broken field running was awesome..

Then the last 7 minutes of STRUGGLE with our scrum going backwards with our wonderful Warrior Fletch getting a Yellow.

Dug deep with the resonating chant of NEWPORT NEWPORT..

Turned the corner and in the Big Dance next week..

Considering UNSW had dominated us in both rounds this was a performance that goes down in the Breakers history..

The talk from their Admin was that they were going to give us a footy lesson..

Little did they know of our tough resilience led by our wonderful band of tenacious forwards who paved the way for our famous victory..

Big Ek was superb and dominant followed by our Champion Timmy but Fletch gets a point for being such a Warrior..

Lets enjoy the wins today and refocus now on the goals ahead ..

We are confident at Concord and a GF is anyone's game ..

Be positive, listen to Simon, Jimmy,and Angus, Alex and Tommy..

At the Dance and in with a BIG chance.

And if you didn't know - AJ sponsors our club as Peninsula Palms...

PREVIOUS SAT 29 April was at home v Lindfield

W7s were also at home v UNSW & Linfield W

Results were...

  • 3rd Grade - Lost 0 - 6

The Ists (Barraclough Cup) suffered poor luck - losing their 5/8 to injury in the previous week and their Half-back to a broken nose in the 1st half. But other than that they still seemed good for a win - until an untimely intercept late in the 2nd half.

We'll be back!

However, once the game is over, welcome the benefits of being part of a social rugby club has to offer off the field as well.

 

Come on, come give it a try!

TRIAL GRADE GAME PLAYED

SATURDAY 26 MARCH v HILLS

Held at Yattenden Park, Baulkham Hills

No Video but Coach Angus James wrote afterwards...

Thanks to Kurt Stevenson, Charlie Lee, Jordan Rides, Josh Smyth, Cal Bowden, Tom Bowden, Bryton Caldwell, Tim Anstey, Seb Allen, Zac Telfer, Connor Bradshaw, Sam Wayling, Harry Condon, Cam Pitts and Taigh Wade who all fronted at Hills today. Even though we weren’t playing Hills top side, it allowed us to blow the cobwebs out and try a few things. Although we were only14 most of the time (hope the shoulders OK Harry Condon), we were able put on about 8 tries to 1 against a big Hills side with a 10 person reserve bench.

Quote of the day - Tim Anstey - "Gee I haven't been hit like that for a while", complete with huge smile on his face.

Welcome to Newport Rugby Taigh Wade - I think we found a new 15 for the club who scored 2 great tries, one off a well worked sideline ping pong play with Harry Condon. Taigh is here from WA where he played grade and is living in Avalon. Another new player was Charlie Lee, who at 49 played all 50 minutes enjoying the contact and a few hit ups. Great to see Kurt Stevenson back at Newport rugby after a successful sevens campaign with Newport earlier in the year.

In three weeks we will be at Porters for the opening game of the season against Briars - get to training this week boys, lots of work to do - its building. Im excited.

Thanks as always to Alan Jones and Alex Baczkowski for being there to get the guys on the field today.

NEW CLUB CAPTAINS ANNOUNCED...

Two GREAT CLUBMEN are sharing the job...

Will Evans and Finn Ambler

As so many know, Sevanaia Piceful had a Stella game with our 7s boys in scorching heat last Saturday, however he put his body on the line, ending up with a pretty badly broken arm.

Seva has always been the heart beat of our club and has always backed his team mates week in week out.

This is going to cause the big fella to be out of work for a good while and due to his VISA situation, won’t be able to get much help to look after the family.

Seva has another one on the way and 5 mouths to feed, including epic mini Seva who is on the path to be a bloody Wallaby in 2 years. Please give him a hand and have his back like he has had ours…

Good luck to the Mighty 7s tomorrow at Rat Park, remember Matty Wello will be there to help out on regos for the coming season.

Sign up boys and girls, the early bird sign up is on offer again this season; and in addition there will also be a reduced rate for the guys travelling this season… basically ‘play half a season and only pay a half season rate’

Get down, it’s going to be great rugby and a great season launch party!

Something old, something new, but always BLUE (&white)
 
Announcing the new Coach – Simon Kacimaiwai
(Pictured above with his future Breakette! - Alara)

We are pleased to announce Simon Kacimaiwai as the new co-coach (forwards) for 1s and 2s this year. This
is truly an outstanding appointment.

Simon will join Jim Allen to form a dynamic coaching partnership for the Club.
Simon is a Rugby Australia Level I & II Qualified coach.

Some of you may remember Simon from his time at the Rats where he was head coach for Colts when both Jeremy Allen and Tim Anstey passed through the program on the way home to Newport Rugby via grade at the Rats.

Simon has spent over 30 years coaching and as a representative selector within the ISA, GPS and CAS 1st XV school competitions including Oakhill, Waverley, Sydney Boys High School and Cranbrook Colleges as well as in the Shute Shield competition as Colts head coach with Eastern Suburbs, Sydney University & Warringah.

When asked his coaching philosophy Simon responded that “his focus is on developing the ‘whole’ player through a coaching approach that is player & team centered and by encouraging individuals to achieve their potential at all levels of rugby”

We are excited about the combination of Jim and Simon coaching 1s and 2s, but recognize from last year the difficulties this presents on game days to provide coaching support to 2s when 1s are warming up. Accordingly, Jim and Simon will be supported with game day bench and coaching from Angus James and Alex Baczkowski who are returning with Tom Allen to coach Colts this year.
Excitingly, Kiwi powerhouse Captain/Coach Nathan Knight will run 3s again with the assistance of Tom, Alex and Angus on game day.

Adding to the player experience will be a program on Tuesday nights of ‘Friends of the Newport” as guest coaches, including the like Eddie Wayling, Tony Hayes (“industrial fridge”) and other old rugby heads who have played years of Shute shield rugby between them.

We’re excited.

Steve

PODCAST

 

by Greg Lee - 1st Grade Coach in 2022...

New Episode Greg Lee - Tales of a Community Coach. Fresh off a premiership victory with the Newport Breakers Rugby Club, Greg discusses the benefits and tackles the big issues involved with coaching adult community sport.

From the Coach...

WHAT A RIDE…

Family isn’t always about blood, it’s the people in life who want you in theirs and you want in yours.

11 months ago I went from possibly taking a year off from coaching to being welcomed into a new rugby family.

It all started with answering a phone call from a club president, some bloke called Jake Osborne, who I’m now proud to call a good mate. He has been absolutely amazing to work along side. Apparently, when he was checking out my credentials I got a reasonable wrap from the Godfather himself, AJ Alan Jones, whom I’ve know for well over 20 years.

We set some goals, made sure we were on the same page and set out to win a club champions and try and pick up a few premierships in the process - what club doesn’t? You’d be mad if you didn’t!

It appears a few things worked out OK. All our teams managed to finish in the top 3, which delivered a club championship. Two sides were minor premiers. All teams played in semi finals for a place in their respective grand finals. Two sides secured a grand final berth and one team won a premiership.

A lot of moving parts and way too many individuals to thanks on a social post, but a collective thank you to all the players, coaches, team managers, game day managers and caterers, ball boys, committee administrators, supporters and sponsors. You all contributed to another fine moment now etched in the history books that nobody can take away.

Despite our 3rd XV being pipped at the post in the final 2 minutes of their grand final, they had a fabulous season playing some exciting rugby and deserve to be congratulated for their consistent effort.

To our 1st XV, an eclectic band of tenacious warriors who were all committed to the cause. It’s been a pleasure helping to guide you through the season and develop a slightly different brand of Breakers’ Rugby. The squad aptly led by two of the toughest warriors I’ve had the pleasure to coach and all of this would not have been possible without them, captain Seb Allen and vice captain Byron Scott. Well played gentlemen.

As a squad, you did it and deserve to bathe in the glory you created. Club Champions, minor premiers and major premiers. To top it off, Sam Groom, our fullback, who unfortunately dislocated his shoulder during the game, won the esteemed Barraclough Medal for the MVP of the year voted on by the referees each week.

It’s important to acknowledge the players whose season was cut short due to injury, but were instrumental in our overall success, Moses Keresi, Connor Bradshaw and Sam Macarthur.

Thanks to Jimmy Allen who looked after all our backs’ play. Thanks to John Glen, our trusty team manager who made sure the sidelines were operational. Thanks to Laura Grace, our sports trainer who used more strapping tape than an Egyptian embalmer to keep the boys on the paddock. It would be remiss of me not to mention Ben Bidencope, our preseason S&C coach who changed the way we dealt with functional strength, movement and fitness. Finally, thanks to my better half and head of my back office operations, Mich Judd who has long supported my passion for the sport we both love.

Enjoy the moment, thanks again to the Newport Breakers Rugby Community and see you at the Blue and White Ball.

Greg Lee

September 2022 From the President...

Two in the GF! What an achievement.

Yesterday proved that Newport is exactly what our reputation suggests. A force to be reckoned with. Whilst we dropped out in a couple, we have two teams through and its set up a great day at TG Milner next Saturday.

To the teams that were knocked out yesterday, we fell one game short of the big dance. Its not a season to be knocked and a massive thank you to everyone that contributed.

3s step up against Hills is a huge battle. Our boys played with such energy yesterday and they are a band of brothers who will stick by each other through anything

1s showed an amazing amount of gumption yesterday and go up against UNI in a giant GF which the boys will be up for.

This Friday night the club will organise a GF dinner for all wanting to get involved in the teams and their partners.

Saturday there is a players bus and a supporters bus heading out before we head back to the club to drink all of the alcohol left.. and send off 2022 in style

Everyone get down there next Saturday and be ready to help the two grades at training this week for their preparation

Lets GO!

“Mo’’ as he was affectionately known collapsed at the end of Newport’s 2nd grade fixture against the St Ives Rugby Club on 26 May 2012. He sadly passed away and is survived by his loving wife Julie and their beautiful children aged 2, 5, and 12.
