The Cobar Camels Junior Rugby Club, as part of the Western Plains Junior Rugby Club, supported the NSW Country Championships in Warren on the weekend. 

New South Wales Country Rugby Union (NSWCRU) is the largest Rugby province in the world encompassing over 80 per cent of the regional and rural areas of New South Wales outside the Sydney metropolitan district.

Nine zones make up the Union comprising over one hundred clubs with a Senior, Junior, Schools and Women player base of over 36,000 people.

Each year the Union conducts Country Championships in the Senior, Junior Age, Schools and Women Divisions.

Zone competitions kick off in late March early April and culminate in final series during September.

NSWCRU provides a representative pathway for players to achieve higher honours in First, Colts, Juniors Women’s and Schools teams.

Cobar juniors Malcolm Gillette and Sally Schintler, along with many other Western Plains Junior players from Bourke Rams, Walgett Lambs, Macquarie Emus, and Coonamble Rams supported the event by participating as game ball boys and ball girls for each game played on the weekend.

It’s reported everyone had fun, got involved and supported Rugby Union which made for a great weekend.
