Weekends in Mudgee are always awash with team colours and uniforms, and with finals either started or about to start, temperatures of players, coaches and supporters are certainly rising!
Our Mudgee Wombats won their major semi final against Coolah Roos in the local Rugby Union on Saturday, which I actually got time to get down and have a look at after the day’s open houses. I have to say the game was a very entertaining physical match up between the two teams who have had some fierce battles over the past 12 months; it was great to see a good crowd down there on what was a lovely day. The Mudgee Wombats’ win has set the scene for a home Grand Final which will take place in two weeks time.
Another local team, the Mudgee Dragons also scored a win on the weekend in the Rugby League, with a massive 62 point thrashing over the Bathurst Panthers. It put them close, but the Dragons sadly missed claiming the minor premiership by a mere 6 points! This means they will line up in a home semi final this weekend against Bathurst St Pats.
With both teams defending last years respective titles it would be great to see plenty of people getting down to support them in the coming weeks, so come on Mudgee locals, let’s get behind our local sporting teams as they get set for finals!
