Final Senior Squad for Mudgee announced

illawarriors logoThe Senior Illawarriors enjoyed a successful fiinal hitout against Campbelltown Harlequins at Campbelltown on Saturday. The Illawarriors won the trial match comfortably but, more importantly, was able to implement the structures they will be needing when they come up against Central West on Saturday in the Semi-Final of the Caldwell Cup.

Coach Brendan Schoupp was pleased with the overall performance of his team although the first twenty minutes was a very nervous affair with too many mistakes by the Rep team. However, in the second quarter ther Illawarriors settled down and concentrated on playing their own game and resisted the temptation of being lured into Campbelltown's game strategy.

  • Anthony Allport (Shamrocks)
