The Singleton Roosters side unveiled a further four senior debutants when it traveled to Wyong Lakes on Saturday.
However they would be without tall marking options Travis Bates, Brenton Potter (unavailable), Sam Brasington (MCL) and Josh Eade (ankle) in a disappointing 31-point defeat.
New recruit Will Brayshaw was named as his side’s best while Jacob Welsh added two goals to his tally.
It would also be a day to forget for the reserves who suffered a 195-point defeat to Wallsend-West Newcastle.
Thankfully, the women’s side prevailed over Gosford 15.15 (105) to 3.1 (19) thanks to another four goal haul from Brianna Howard.
The tall forward stood strong to land the game’s opener while 2018 team of the year member Tori Cowburn also kicked a goal in each of the opening three quarters.
She would be named in the best behind Tahlia Thompson and Hayley Richards.
All three sides will now return home to host rival Maitland on Saturday April 27.
