Higher Rep Honours as at 2013 season

From the Under 7s right up to our First Grade, our teams are sprinkled with players of immense talent, many have represented the Central Coast with merit, with some of our players moving onto selection for higher representative honours.

It is impossible to highlight every one of our talented players, but we can introduce you to a number of our players who have attained higher representative honours as at 2013 season.

The Wildcats would love to feature any higher rep players (reps "above" Central Coast reps) on this page. Please email us at butlers@liquidinternets.com

Photos should be 150x150. Wording should be similar to below

Kevin

 

Kevin started with the Warnervale Wildcats in 2004 in the u/12’s playing Second Row. He has played for the Central Coast reps in Under 13/14/17/18’s and Hunter Rugby Academy in under 16s. Kevin was a part of the Warnervale u/17’s premiership team in 2009.
Kevin made the positional switch to loose head prop when he was 18 to look for further rugby opportunities. In 2010 he played with Northern Suburbs Colts for a few months to gain some Sydney Rugby experience. He then came back to the Warnervale to break into Country rugby representative sides.
In 2011 Kevin was selected into the NSW Country under 20’s team and played against Melbourne and ACT Brumbies.
After representing Central Coast seniors in 2012, Kevin was selected in the senior NSW Country Cockatoos team. He played against Queensland Country in Rockhampton and Cowra winning the “Battle of the Borders” Cup. He also played against Melbourne at Camden. He played at Alliance Stadium for NSW Country against Sydney Subbies as the curtain raiser to the Waratahs match. His final representative game for 2012 was the ABC televised match of the day City Vs. Country Gold at Concord Oval.
At the beginning of the 2013 season Kevin was fortunate enough to be invited to play for the NSW Waratah ‘A’ team against Fiji. This included training alongside the first string NSW Waratah team for an entire week.
Kevin represented Central Coast seniors again in 2013 and was again selected in the senior NSW Country Cockatoos team. He played against Queensland Country in Townsville and Hunter Stadium in Newcastle as the curtain raiser to the British and Irish Lions game against Combined Country. He also played against Melbourne, then played at ANZ Stadium for NSW Country against Sydney Subbies as the curtain raiser to another Waratahs match.
Kevin’s future ambition is to play rugby professionally either in Australia or overseas.

The story so far……
At the start of 2011 life for Tarnae was beginning  to change, After spending 3 years living in PNG and having only played rugby league for 2 seasons before that, Tarnae approached his parents and to their shock he expressed his desire to play the game they played in heaven …….. Rugby Union.
When Tarnae attended his first training session he had no idea what a ruck or a  maul was (he thought you went to the maul to buy a ruck) but nonetheless, he was convinced that he liked it and that rugby was the game for him.
From these humble beginnings Tarnae has been quite blessed to make Sydney North PSSA representative team in his first year of playing rugby and to follow that representative call up with the Central Coast U13’s team the following year 2012 and again this year 2013. The highlight of his young career would definitely have to be his selection in the NSW Country U14’s squad for 2013.
Tarnae is a very versatile player being competent in playing various positions, he was selected in the Sydney North Side as a bustling No 6, played a no nonsense role at No 10 with the  Central Coast U13’s and this year was selected at No 12 for both the Central Coast and Country team.
With a lot of hard work and dedication, but most of all the passion and love of playing this great game, Tarnae looks to the future with great optimism in the hope that one day, he is blessed with playing at the highest professional level     To be continued………..

KeanuAshwell

The past couple of years have proved to be rather fruitful for Keanu’s rugby career. Making the Country side in 2012 gave him the opportunity to play against the best Sydney had to offer.
He attracted the eyes of the selectors for his performance, then went on to represent NSW against other States. He was then asked to tour with the NSW Country Under 18’s side to the UK and Ireland, where he gained a wealth of experience playing the best rugby players, the UK and Ireland had to offer.
He is currently playing in the NSWCCC side and trialing for the Australian schools Under 18’s.
With another tour about to come with the NSW Under 18’s to France and Scotland his future is looking rather rosey.The next couple of years will prove to be the hardest challenge he will have, but a future in rugby is quite on the cards.

Ben

 

Before this year Ben has played in six Rugby Union grand finals with the Warnervale Rugby Club. His team has won five of these grand finals, and he has represented in the Central Coast Junior Rugby Union representative teams since the age of 12. In 2012 he was awarded the Junior Player of the Year by the Warnervale Rugby Club.
Last year the CCJRU representative team was crowned NSW Country Champions, and Ben was selected to play for NSW in the Lloyd McDermott Indigenous Development team to play in the Australian Championships in Alice Springs. He was also a late call up (due to injuries) to the Under 18 NSW Country Rugby Union team for a tour to the UK and Ireland - he was only 16 at the time.
This year the CCJRU Under 18 team was again crowned NSW Country Champions, and Ben was selected in the Under 18 NSW Country team to tour to UK and France at the end of 2013 - a tour he unfortunately couldn't make.
He played again for NSW in the Lloyd McDermott team, and was picked as a “shadow” back for the National Indigenous Team for the Aust. Schools Championships at Riverview in July. He travelled to Armidale on the June long weekend for the NSW Country Schools Championships where he was selected in the NSW Country Schools 1st XV side to play an International against Fiji on 23rd September, and then a match against Tonga Combined Schools.
He backed this selection with a great game against CHS II which earned him a spot as the shadow fullback for the NSW Schoolboys team.
Ben has won a number of gold, silver and bronze medals in Athletics Championships, and recently travelled to the Gold Coast in Queensland representing NSW in the Australian Christian School’s Athletics Championships. He won three gold medals and one silver medal.
In early June Ben was invited to run in the feature race before the Northern Suburbs vs West Harbour Shute Shield game at Bluetongue Stadium. Ben won this race and was crowned "the Central Coast's fastest rugby player".
