Illawarra's top young rugby talent has a final chance to claim a victory in the inaugural National Junior Gold Cup competition against Central Coast at WIN Stadium on Sunday.
Illawarra head into their fifth and final match in the under 15s and 17s competitions looking for their first win after a few close losses.
Illawarra have taken on Sydney North, Sydney West, Western NSW and, in their only previous home game, a Victorian development side aligned with Super 15s franchise Melbourne Rebels.
The Victorians proved too strong in the two games at Ocean Park, Woonona.
They won the U15s clash 31-12, and 38-5 in the U17s.
Illawarra officials had always expected a tough first season in a national competition featuring 48 teams from 24 regions and five rounds played over six weeks.
Freshened up after their bye last weekend, Illawarra will be chasing a win against their traditional rivals Central Coast on Sunday.
The u-15s clash kicks off at 1pm and the U17s kick off at 2.15pm.
