What’s on in Bathurst Regional Sport – May 30 & 31, 2015
Just because the days are getting colder doesn’t mean you shouldn’t head out and enjoy the weekend. We’ve got a jam-packed selection of what’s going on in sport this weekend in the Bathurst, Blayney, Oberon, Cowra and Molong regions. Make sure you get out there with the family, the kids, the dogs, even nanna! They’ll love it!
Central West Women’s AFL
THIS Saturday sees the inaugural opening round of the Central West Women’s AFL with the Bathurst Bushrangers facing up against the Orange Tigers. After months of careful planning and gauging public interest, all four regular first grade clubs – Bathurst, Orange, Dubbo and Cowra – will now have women’s teams in the exciting new nine-round competition. Teams will play games under a modified set of rules, which includes a minimum nine-a-side format.
If you’d like to get involved in playing for the Bushrangers, the ladies train on Tuesday and Thursday each week from 5pm to 6.30pm, and welcome any women aged 15 and up. Even if you’d like to just have a kick with the girls, they’d love to see you at training.
The opening bounce will be at 1.30pm at Bloomfield Oval for the Lady Bushrangers debut match.
Bathurst Goldminers take on Wagga Wagga Blaze
The Bathurst Goldminers are eyeing their sixth straight win in anticipation of tomorrow’s game versus the Wagga Wagga Blaze. If the Blaze can take out the match they’ll be 4 and 4 for the season. With the Goldminers looking like one of the teams to beat, they can’t ease up their performance with the Queanbeyan Yowies having won their first eight games of the season.
The Goldminers will be without Olivia Patterson, Riley Smith and Claire Woolmington for the clash, which starts at 5pm.
Bulldogs sure thing against Narromine
The Bathurst Bulldogs are looking to be a shoo-in for tomorrow’s game against Narromine. The Dogs have already racked up a substantial 196 points so far this season versus the Gorillas paltry 10 points. The game will be played at Narromine’s Cale Oval with kick off at 3:15pm. Why not head on down with the kids and have a look.
Rams to flex muscles of mammoth pack in country championship opener
Tomorrow sees the Country Rugby League Regional Championships opener with the Rams taking on the Tigers. Rams coach Mick Sullivan has put the Tigers on notice with the fierce starting pack that he’s put up, and with a bench full of forwards, no doubt plans to brutalise the opposition.
The Rams and Tigers will lock horns from 2pm on Saturday, at Bathurst’s Carrington Park, while Riverina plays Northern Rivers (11am) and under 15’s Bathurst Panthers side takes on the Bloomfield Tigers (12.45pm) in the lead-up games.
Eagles are confident ahead of Boars battle
The Cowra Eagles will carry plenty of confidence into their round seven clash with the Parkes Boars at Northparkes Oval tomorrow after a massive effort against the Orange Emus at Endeavour Oval on Saturday. After an unblemished start to the season, the Eagles have slipped to a pair of losses in the last fortnight. The Eagles take on the Parkes Boars at Northparkes Oval tomorrow at 3.15pm.
