It wasn’t a great couple of days in Mudgee for the Newcastle & Hunter representative teams over the past weekend.
The Seniors team has relinquished their six year reign of the Caldwell Cup by going down 14-36 to a very committed Central West team in Sunday’s final. This followed a 25 all draw on the Saturday with Central North - following this draw, Newcastle & Hunter progressed to the final due to scoring 4 tries to 3.
Colts on Saturday lost 13-21 to Central Coast, but redeemed themselves by thrashing Far North Coast on Sunday in the playoff for third and fourth by 53 to nil. This game was highlighted by 4 tries to NHRU fullback George Ashworth.
Congratulations must go to Central West, who are 2014 NSW Country Champions in both Colts and Seniors . And also congratulations to local referee Jarryd Logan , who was appointed to the Seniors Final on Sunday.
Despite the results in Mudgee, NHRU congratulates all players, coaches and staff for their commitment to the 2014 program, which started back in October. The NSW Country teams will be announced later this week.
