Two of Cobar’s junior rugby league teams headed to Forbes on Saturday for a big day of footy while the Under 9s played in Dubbo on Sunday.

Spooner Oval and Hugh Wilson Oval in Forbes were full of mini-and-mod rugby league talent with the Forbes Junior Carnival on Saturday attracting a total of 81 teams from Orange to Cobar to contest over 100 games.

There were also Under 13s, Under 14s, Under 15s and Under 16s matches played at Red Bend, making it a massive day.

Cobar was represented by Under 12s and Under 16s teams.

Also attending the gala day on Sunday were NRL Canterbury Bulldogs rugby league players Josh Jackson, Adam Elliot and Zac Woolford who signed and presented the juniors with shirts at the end of the day.
