Fingal Beach Surf Life Saving Club was well represented at the NSW Age Surf Life Saving Championships at the weekend with Shari Hurdman winning gold in the under-12 sprint and Will Clark bronze in the 2km beach run.

In the all age relay, Fingal made the final and finished in sixth place in a quality field.

The club will have a squad of competitors at Blacksmiths Beach this weekend in the under-14 to 17 divisions as the state championship continues.

Nelson Bay girls rugby union teams have started their season strongly in the summer sevens series.

Under-15s posted draws against Easts and Merewether last Friday night while the under-17 team had win and a loss against Hamilton and Southern Beaches.

Nelson Bay coaches Dion Cooper, Darren Balzer, Trent McDowell and Graham Bakker are looking forward to hosting the summer sevens at Salamander sports complex on March 28.

Also in late March, the junior Gropers will hold their annual pre-season trial against Wanderers. Both clubs will field 12 teams from under-8s up to under-18s in an all day carnival.

Nelson Bay Cricket Club finished its season on Saturday with teams missing a semi-final spot.

However, B2 finished on a high with strong win over Carrington at Salamander Oval.

The Bay bowlers set up the win when they blitzed the Riders with Matt James producing the great figures 3-13, Troy Zadow and Jay Schneeberger both claimed two wickets each.

The opening batsmen started the run chase in style with Dave Conners 25, and Matt James 19 to send the twos out on a winning note.
