Round 2
(Wyong 27 Terrigal 20).
Tries:  B. Butler, W. Meehan, J. Mathews, R. Stephen, C. Turei. Goals:  T. Bowman, R. Stephen. Well another great win. It was a hard game  to pick the man of the match, but I went for Rory. Scoring a try, kicking a goal and tackled well as did the whole team. Jake made some fantastic tackels. All in all you all played well. Sorry Jacob and Nathan couldn’t play they were sick. Special thanks to Debbie, Peter, Jodie, Warren and all the ladies for their help not only with the game but in the canteen and barbie.

Round 3
(Wyong 5 The Entrance 5) Tries:  R. Stephen. Oh boy what a game! The play went from one end to the other before Rory scored. Then some weak defence let The Entrance score then the play went from one end to the other for the last 10 minutes. You all played well but the man of the match went to Ben Killen with the runner up going to Tyson Campbell and there is a pat on the back for Nathan playing with his crook leg. Many thanks to Warren (water boy) or shall I say OLD BOY! Peter and Debbie for scoring and Jodie the jumper washer. Carol Kelso would like to thank all player and parents for their get well wishes

Round 4
The 7/1's had a good win against Umina on Saturday with a final score of 41-18. The team played very well with some good passing, running and tackling, and as usual, the game was played with good sportsmanship. Rory Stephen played an excellent game in support play and scored two excellent tries. Ben Butler scored 3 tries, and Jacob Mifsub scored two while Ben Killen and Jake Matthews both scored a try each. 
Willis Meehan was given the "Man of the Match" award with some excellent tackles. Brendan  Pateman also had a terrific game and was given a "Special Match Award". Tyson Campbell, Nathan Wilde and Ben Killen made some excellent tackles while Thomas Bowman kicked a great conversion. Thanks boys and keep up the good work.

Round 5
The 7/1's had another good win on Saturday, this time against the previously unbeaten North Lakes. The team played very well with some good passing, running and tackling, and in an extremely entertaining game ran out close victors 20-18. Jake Matthews played an excellent game with some hard running which netted him three excellent tries. Ben Butler scored the other try, and was unlucky to be either pulled down or pushed into touch to stop him scoring a few more. 
Willis Meehan kept up his usual high work rate with some excellent tackles and big busts "up the middle". Ben Killen made quite a few telling tackles, while Jacob Mifsud made some great tackles in the third quarter and threatened to break free on a number of occasions. The boys are just learning about off-loads, and there was quite a few terrific "back-up plays" during the game. Thomas, Brendan, Rory and Nathan also gave of their best, and all in all the boys should be very proud of their effort.

Round 6
This long-awaited game was finally played on the 7th July, and was a disappointing loss to the young roos. They weren't helped by not having a referee ready to take the game, but luckily Craig Wheatley from the Kincumber side offered to take the 'whistle' (although we didn't even have a whistle). 

Round 7
The 7/1's had another good win on Saturday, this time against Erina away from home. The final score was 23-10. The team kept up their improvement with some good passing, running and tackling. Ben Butler played a good game with some fast running and evasiveness and scored three excellent tries. Ben Killeen scored a try, and was joined in the scoring list by Jake Matthews, while Jacob Mifsub kicked a drop goal conversion. Some great tackles by the team stopped Erina scoring on a number of occasions.
Ben Killen was man of the match, and Willis Meehan was given best supporting player. Rory Stephen was captain for the day and was ably supported by Thomas Bowman, Brendan Pateman, and Nathan Wilde.

Round 8
The mighty 7/1s suffered their first defeat at the hands of the Toukley Hawks. Final score and match report to come.

Round 9
After four hard games during the Vic Saunders Carnival, you could be excused for thinking the mighty 7/1s would be a bit tired, but a 49-18 win over Terrigal at Brendan Franklin Oval showed that they still had a lot of energy. Ben Butler scored 5 runaway tries and kicked a goal, while Willis Meehan scored 2 blockbusting tries and a goal, followed by Rory Stephen also with 2 quick-stepping tries and a goal. The 7-1s were grateful for backup from their 7-2 mates, with Jack Waddell, Patrick O'Neil and Angus Mitchell showing they also had enough energy to back up. Not to be outdone Ben Killeen, Thomas Bowman and Ben Butler then backed up for the 8-1s to get a taste of football is like with the "big boys". Well Done boys a terrific effort. 

Round 10
Report to come. 

Round 11
The game against Umina at Erina Oval started perfectly for the Roos. Straight from the kickoff Ben Butler caught the ball on the full then proceeded to evade the defence to score under the posts. Considering the boys were playing one player short the effort they put up was nothing short of terrific. Even when they trailed by one point at the second break the boys would not give up. The ran out worthy winners 47-26 with Ben Butler scoring 4 tries, Jake Matthews 2 tries, Jacob Mifsud 2 tries and Rory Stephen 1 try. Jacob Mifsud then proceeded to kick two goals and Willis Meehan kicked one goal. Man of the Match was Ben Butler, with Willis Meehan also getting an award. A terrific in cold and trying conditions, congratulations.
