As the 2017 pre-season draws to a close, the West Sydney Pirates’ teams are excited for the 2017 season to begin. The full 2017 schedule can be found at 2017 Div 1 Schedule and 2017 Colts Schedule which will be filled out soon as there have been changes due to a late withdrawal by the Panthers.
We hope to see you out supporting the teams.

NepeanDucks

The Pirates’ winning ways continued in Week 6 against local rivals, the Nepean Ducks. The score lines perhaps flattered the Pirates and credit must be given to the Ducks for their spirit and determination.

The Pirates’ Colts started well and had a particularly good First Half. The Second Half was more of an arm-wrestle but the Pirates still ran out winners by 38-6.

The older counterparts didn’t have it all their own way in the Division 1 game either. Despite holding a 31-14 lead at the halftime break, it was more of a struggle later in the game with the scoring by both teams quite limited. The Pirates stumbled at times but still came away with the win by 44-14.

The season is starting to get tougher and both teams will have to be at their best as they head towards Playoff time.

2016 Season – Week 5

North Western Predators

The Pirates extended their winning streaks in both the Colts and Division 1 competitions with wins over teams from the Northwestern club in Week 5.

The Colts got proceedings underway with a 24-0 shutout win over the Northwestern Giants. The under strength Colts team took an early lead and were never headed as they maintained their spot at the top of the Colts’ standings.

Not to be outdone, the Pirates’ Division 1 team recorded a 62-24 win over the Northwestern Predators to stay near the top of their own standings.

To this point of the season the Pirates are the only club in GNSW that has not tasted defeat in 2016 which in itself is an impressive statistic!

2016 Season – Week 4

Newcastle Cobras - large

While the Pirate Colts were enjoying a week off the Pirates’ Division 1 team continued on their winning ways with a hard fought win over the Newcastle Cobras in Newcastle in week 4 of the GNSW competition. The 54-13 score line does not give a true indication of the physical nature of the game though and the Pirates were made to work hard for their win from start to finish.

The Pirates overcame a slow start and went on to hold a commanding lead at halftime. But the second half was somewhat indifferent and that’s an issue that the Pirates will need to work on in the weeks ahead.

Make no mistake, the road trip to play Newcastle in the Hunter will become a big challenge in the very near future as the Cobras are on the rise.

In week 5 action the Pirates take on the Northwestern Predators.

The Pirates kept up their winning streaks with big wins over the Northern Sydney Rebels in Week 3 of the 2016 season.

The Pirates Colts had a big win against an undermanned but courageous Rebels team by 48-0. The win keeps the Pirates at the top of the Colts’ Standings

The Pirates Division 1 team followed that up with a mixed display but still managed a 46-6 win over their northern opponents.

Week 4 games see the Pirates Division 1 team take on the Newcastle Cobras while the Colts have a Bye.

The Pirates got their 2016 campaigns underway in impressive style in Week 2 of the season. With Week 1 games being cancelled due to wet weather the games against Wollongong would be the Pirates’ first serious hit out and the first real chance to see how the teams had come together in the pre-season.

The Pirates Colts got the day off to a great start with a 32-12 win over the Wollongong Brumbies. The Pirates, fielding a team largely made up of rookies, started well and were never headed on the day.

The Pirates Division 1 team followed that up with an impressive 56-8 win over the Wollongong Mustangs. The Pirates scored from their first play from scrimmage and kept up the pressure throughout the game to record their win.

It was a great start by both teams but there is a long season ahead and still a lot of improvements to make.

Week 3 games see the Pirates take on the Northern Sydney Rebels.

We have just received this email from the League –

Clubs,

Unfortunately due to the significant rain that has fallen today all grounds have been closed. With the lack of an adequate number of suitable grounds to move all games, GNSW has been forced to call round 1 effectively cancelled.

All games will be scored as a 6-6 draw, giving each team 1 championship point. The exception to this is Central Coast v West Sydney, as Central Coast forfeited, the result of that game remains the default 21-0 for West Sydney.

These games will not be made up later in the season.

The 2016 season for both Colts and Division 1 is only about one month away. Although we haven’t received details of the Draw from the League as yet the opportunities for improvement are slipping away.

How will we start the season? Will we be ready? Will YOU be ready?

Make an effort and get to training.

Time is running out!
