University are now scheduled to play Noosa in the 2014 Sunshine Coast Rugby Union grand final at Sunshine Coast Stadium next weekend. They defeated Toads 19–10 at Australia‘s University of the Sunshine Coast in the preliminary final yesterday.

The first half of the preliminary final was uneventful on field with both teams scoring unconverted tries. A highlight was touch judge Steve Ryan seen laughing with the nearby crowd briefly before continuing his duties. Five-all was the score at half time.

The second half saw three tries scored. Toads scored the opening try at thirteen minutes to take the score to 10–5.

University scored the first converted try eight minutes later to take the lead — 12–10 to Uni. They sealed the victory with thirteen minutes left in the game with a converted try.

University didn’t walk away unscathed, however, with either picking up injuries or aggravating existing ones.

University coach Steve Scotland said, “I really don’t know how we’re going to shape up […] We had a lot of boys who either picked up injuries or re-injured themselves in that game.”

But Scotland says they can still win the premiership decider. “If we’re patient for the whole game we will do all right, but there were some points there where we tried to play a game of touch football, and you can’t do that […] If we can work on that patience we should give ourselves a good chance against Noosa.”

Noosa have claimed the first spot in the 2014 Sunshine Coast Rugby Union grand final after defeating University 13–0 at Sunshine Beach, Australia on Saturday.

David Harrold opened the scoring with a penalty goal at fourteen minutes before converting a Kyle Beakey try.

“We played good finals football today and University are a good side and if you give them too much ball in your territory you’re going to pay for it,” said Noosa coach Mick Phelan. “It was probably our best kicking game this year and that was the difference in the end.”

Harrold kicked one more penalty goal six minutes into the second half. This took the score to 13–0, where it stayed for the rest of the game.

University now face Toads in the preliminary final at the University of the Sunshine Coast.

This season’s Sunshine Coast Rugby Union semi finals are now scheduled to take place at Sunshine Beach and Caloundra, Australia. The venues were settled upon in the final round of play yesterday, incidentally at the same venues and teams.

In Sunshine Beach Noosa defeated University 17–8 in a closer match than the final score suggested. Noosa took an early lead after eleven minutes through an unconverted try.

University took the score to 5–3 seven minutes later. They would take the lead seventeen minutes into the second half and would not relinquish until three minutes left in the game. At this point Noosa rumbled over through a series of about ten rucks.

In their round five clash at Sunshine Beach, University won 15 points to 13. Noosa won the round ten match at the University of the Sunshine Coast by nine points – 24 points to 15.

In the other A-grade game at Caloundra, the hosts defeated Toads 37–8 to host the minor semi final. In round five Caloundra won by eight points, while in round ten the teams played a 14-all draw.

The winner of the major semi goes straight trough to the grand final. The loser plays in the preliminary final against the winner of the minor semi final at a yet-unknown venue.

Toads ended Maroochydore’s chances of making the 2014 Sunshine Coast Rugby Union finals in Cotton Tree, Australia this afternoon. They defeated the reigning premiers 43 points to 12.

A Maroochydore try at 32 minutes suggested a fight back from three tries down but Toads would pile on four tries to one from there. Maroochydore’s finals chances ended at eleven minutes to five local time (0649 UTC) with their final try.

To qualify for the finals, Maroochydore needed to win both of its games and have other results go its way. They play the second-placed University next week in their final game of the season. Toads play Noosa next week and, in a minor semi final preview, Caloundra the week after.

In the weekends other A-grade game, Caloundra defeated Noosa 22–14.

University has defeated Caloundra yesterday in their round 11 Sunshine Coast Rugby Union match at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Sippy Downs, Australia.

Caloundra went 3–0 up at the five minute mark after being awarded a penalty due to University playing the ball in the ruck. University had a chance to even up the scores five minutes later but the ball sailed wide.

The hosts went two points in front at twenty seven minutes scoring a try off the back of a rolling maul. 5–3 University. Caloundra retook the lead five minutes later through another penalty goal. 6–5 Caloundra.

University hit back right off the resulting kickoff scoring their second try, which they converted. This score was at such a pace that the reporter of this article was still transcribing the notes for the previous penalty goal. 12–6 to University.

A third try for the half would see the half time scores at 17 points to 6 in University’s favour.

The second half opened with University forcing a scrum five metres from Caloundra’s try line. This was achieved by making Caloundra ground the ball behind said try line after carrying it over.

The game was held up briefly by back-to-back injury stoppages at about the fifteen minute mark. Caloundra would score their third penalty goal of the game two minutes after play resumed. Their fourth would come five minutes later taking the scores to 17–12 in University’s favour.

University slotted the match’s final penalty goal around five minutes before full time. Final score — University 20, Caloundra 12. In the other A-grade game, Noosa defeated Maroochydore 24–10.
