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!

The 2015 season has come to a close and the Pirates can be proud of their efforts in both the Colts and Division 1 competitions.

Thank you to everyone who participated as either a player, coach or support staff, but a special thanks to those who supported the Club throughout the year by giving up their husband, their boyfriend, their son or their dad to allow them to be a part of the team.

May you all have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy 2016.

The Pirates’ Division 1 team came agonisingly close in the 2015 Waratah Bowl before falling to perennial Champions, the Sydney University Lions by 36-18.

The final score is not a true indication of how close the game was as the Pirates were trailing by 14-12 at halftime, then leading for much of the 3rd Quarter, before the Lions were able to put on some quick points to claim the title.

Injuries certainly played their part during the game as a number of Pirate players left the game and were unable to return and this had an impact on what the Pirates were able to do. But they never surrendered and stretched the Lions until the final whistle.

The West Sydney Pirates Colts season came to an end against the undefeated Sutherland Seahawks in the Playoff game at David Phillips Field.

The final score of 30-8 was not a true reflection of the game as the teams were close up until the closing stages of the game when the Seahawks’ larger squad proved to be the difference by helping them to score quick points to blow out the final margin.

Although they didn’t make the Championship Game the young Pirates can be proud of their efforts throughout what was a challenging and often difficult season.

North Western Predators

The West Sydney Pirates Division 1 team tasted Playoff success against the Northwestern Predators, but it was not without its drama.

The Pirates outlasted a spirited Predators team to win by 47-41 and move on to the 2015 Championship game.

The game was a topsy-turvy affair with the lead changing hands multiple times but it was the Pirates who managed to have the final say and hang on for a nail-biting win.

The 2015 Waratah Bowl awaits!

UTS Gridiron

The West Sydney Pirates Colts took a step closer to the 2015 Championship Game after an impressive win in the opening round of the Playoffs against UTS Gridiron.

Down 8-0 to UTS at the halftime break, the Pirates delivered in the second half and dominated the game to win by 24-8.

The Pirates now move on to the second round of the Playoffs where they take on reigning Champions, the Sutherland Seahawks.

Wollongong Mustangs

The Pirates took on Wollongong in Week 11 of the 2015 season and it was two wins but for very different reasons.

The Pirates Colts won on a forfeit when the Wollongong Brumbies were unable to field a team.

The Pirates Division 1 team defeated a gutsy Wollongong Mustangs team by 60-18. The score is not a true reflection of the game though as the Pirates only showed flashes of what they are capable of achieving.

It was overcast but mainly dry conditions for the Week 9 clash between the Pirates and the Northern Sydney Rebels. The Pirates were missing a large number of players due to injury and knew that they would be in for a tough game.

The Rebels opened the game with the clear intent of running the ball to control the clock and keep the ball out of the Pirates’ possession, and in the First Half it certainly worked with both teams locked at 0-0 at the halftime break.

The momentum certainly shifted in the Second Half though due to some adjustments at the break and the increased tempo and energy displayed by the Pirates.

The final score saw the Pirates run away winners by 36-6.

The Pirates now have a Bye week which has come at the right time. The team is hurting and the roster is dwindling, so the break will allow the team to recharge the batteries and get a little healthier in the lead up to the Playoffs.
