Newport Rugby Club's Breakettes First Home Game for 2022 - at Porters' Reserve Newport Beach
After the very disappointing 2021 season, with games cancelled because of COVID 19, the Newport Breakers are looking forward to a full batch of games in 2022.
This season the Breakers will be playing in a Subbies experiment competition involving a combination of sides in Second and Third Division – twelve teams in all.
Caitlin Hennessy, Iva Vurai, Filomena Tubuna Dalituicama, Mikaela Reffold and Iuna Couy scored points for the Breakettes.
Overall the Newport Breakers had a good day on their home ground, Saturday April 30th, Round 2 for the Season. Unfortunately the Colts (Robertson Cup) match is set to be replayed due to an injury to a Lindfield player which suspended play. The club and all players gave the injured player a loud round of applause as he was carried from the field. Newport wishes to express sympathy for Lindfield's 2nd Grade No 8 who suffered a badly broken leg.
Other results were:
4th Grade (Richardson Cup): Newport 24 - Lindfield 12
3rd Grade (Blunt Cup): Newport 28 - Lindfield 6
2nd Grade (Stockdale Cup): Newport 6 - Lindfield 10
1st Grade (Barraclough Cup): Newport 42 - Lindfield 10
The Breakers are fielding four senior teams and Colts as well as the Breakettes – the club’s ladies team. The men’s teams have six remaining home games at Porter Reserve in Burke Street Newport on the dates shown below:
May 14 – Vs Blacktown
June 18 – Vs Barker Old Boys

The Breakers have been playing rugby at Porter Reserve since 1969 and next year will mark the 50th anniversary of their first premiership in 1973. The club is looking to emulate their very successful 2020 season with three from four premierships and being named Club of the Year from all Subbies divisions. Already this year the club has been runner up in the Hamilton 7’s tournament and was the winner of the Warringah 7’s for Subbies teams.
