City take slim lead into final day of NSW City v Country tournament

City teams won four of the final five grand finals on the opening day of the NSW City v Country tournament on the Central Coast and will take a one point lead into the final day of the tournament on Sunday. 

Country dominated the senior age groups and took out the Womens Masters, Mens 35s, Mens 40s, Mens 45s and Mens 50s divisions. 

The Womens Opens final was an all country affair, with Northern Country Knights beating Southern Country Pride 6-1. 

In the Mens Opens decider, Western City Scorpions overcame a two try deficit to claim a 3-2 win over Northern Country Knights. 

While in the Mixed Opens final, Southern City Seahawks beat their Western City rivals 8-5. 

It looked as though Country would take a comfortable lead into the final day until late on Saturday, when City teams hit back and won all three Mixed divisions and the Mens 55s. 

City lead Country 8-7 heading into Sunday’s junior tournament.
