“The weather looks like it will be on our side with a beautiful day and top of 17, great for the spectators,” Young Junior Rugby Union’s Sos Waddell said.

“It is a great day for Junior Rugby in Young as there will be in excess of 500 players and supporters in town for the day. This is wonderful to see that sport for the younger population is alive and well in small towns and hopefully well supported by the locals.”

Young Junior Rugby Union is well represented in the finals with seven teams competing for a place in the grand final.
