Seven preliminary finals in a big day of league
THE Tweed Byron Group 18 Junior Rugby League finals series continues tomorrow with Mullumbimby hosting the league’s seven preliminary finals in a big day for junior rugby league in the region.
The under-10 through to U16-and-a-half teams that made it through to the prelim finals will play off for the chance of making the grand final next Saturday.
The day starts with Bilambil versus South Tweed in the U10s, followed by Cudgen and South Tweed U11s, Byron Bay-Lennox Head and Murwillumbah U12s, Bilambil and Murwillumbah U13s, Byron Bay-Lennox Head and South Tweed U14s, Tugun and Cudgen U15s and the day will be capped with the U16-and-a-half clash between Cudgen and Murwillumbah.
While South Tweed and Murwillumbah are strongly represented on the day with three grades each in finals, Cudgen are looking like featuring strongly and having a big say in the outcome of grand final day next weekend.
Cudgen squares off in three grades today (U11s, 15s and 16-and-a-half), but have already had their U10s, 12s and 13s qualify directly through to grand finals, leaving only their U14 grade missing out.
It is a wonderful effort which president Ken Shaw puts down to the environment the club provides.
“The club as a whole is going pretty strongly,” he said.
The day opens with the U10s at 9am, with games all day.
