</div>The Central Coast Division of Country Rugby League is a rugby league competition based on the Central Coast of New South Wales between Sydney and Newcastle. It was founded in 1947 as a junior competition for the Newcastle club, Lakes United. In 1967, it was upgraded again to full membership of the Country Rugby League as Group 12. In 1981, it was renamed Central Coast Division. Its future was questioned in 2003 when four teams (Erina, Ourimbah, The Entrance and Woy Woy) decided to field teams in the Jim Beam Cup, a Sydney-based competition, while Wyong the Newcastle Rugby League Competition. Since then Woy Woy, The Entrance and Ourimbah have left the Jim Beam cup in Sydney, and only field local sides, while Erina still field a Jim Beam Cup side. Wyong initially fielded sides in the local competition, but they now only field sides in the Newcastle Tooheys Cup.
