Halfback Melanie Howard has had a stellar year with the Central Coast Roosters.

A 16-6 victory over North Sydney Bears in Round 7 of the 2020 Harvey Norman NSW Women's competition has seen Central Coast Roosters claim the Minor Premiership and help maintain a stunning undefeated record throughout the regular season. 

The Roosters have cemented their status as the premiership heavyweights of the revamped competition with five wins and one draw in their six matches, and will now have their sights set on a long-awaited premiership triumph. 

They have a star-studded line-up that boasts the likes of 2018 Golden Boot winner Isabelle Kelly and fellow representative stalwart Kylie Hilder, while Brydie Parker and Jayme Fressard have produced some stunning performances this year to help build an ominous attacking record that has them ranked first in the competition for points scored (132).

They have also built a formidable defensive unit that has seen them concede less than six points per game (on average), with their 10-all draw against a winless Wentworthville outfit in Round 5 being the most they have conceded in a game all season.

They will now enjoy the week off in the opening week of the finals series, along with Cronulla Sharks, who finished second on the competition ladder after a dominant 5-1 record.

They endured just one loss throughout their campaign, that coming in Round 6 when they suffered a 22-6 defeat at the hands of a clinical Roosters outfit. 

Meanwhile, this weekend will see two blockbuster Elimination Final fixtures with North Sydney Bears going head-to-head with South Sydney Rabbitohs, while Wests Tigers will host Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in the second match at Campbelltown Stadium on Saturday.
