Newcastle & Hunter Seniors representative team clinched their sixth straight Caldwell Cup on Sunday at the final of the 2013 NSW Country Championships at Tamworth.
Following a 31-21 win on Saturday against Central North, NHRU beat Illawarra in the final 28-18. In both games, Newcastle & Hunter trailed but came back to record gutsy wins.
The NHRU Colts (Under 20s) had to settle as joint champions after a 5-all extra time draw in their final against Central West. After beating Far North Coast 46-14 on the Saturday, the Colts played a determined Central West where the half time score was 0-0. A try apiece in the second half resulted in extra time, which still couldn't separate the teams.
The NSW Country teams will be announced later this week.
