RugbyWA Challenge Cup Launched

Thursday, January 05, 2006

Emirates Western Force Academy head coach Steve McFarland will help oversee the cup

RugbyWA has today launched a new preseason competition for 2006, involving players from the Emirates Western Force.

The RugbyWA Challenge Cup is designed to provide high quality rugby in the February/March window ahead of what will be an exciting 2006.

The tournament will be played over three consecutive weekends. The four sides will be selected from the Emirates Western Force playing squad, Perth Gold players from 2005, Under 19 development players and Emirates Western Force Academy players.

Clubs will also be asked to nominate players for consideration. The program will be overseen by the soon to be appointed Perth Gold head coach and Emirates Western Force Academy Head Coach Steve McFarland.

All matches will be played as double headers at Rugby Park , Perry Lakes on the following dates:

18 February 2006

25 February 2006

4 March 2006

From these matches, a Perth Gold squad will be selected for the 2006 Australian Rugby Shield. The tournament will also give much needed match fitness to those professional players and match officials involved in the 2006 Premier Rugby season.

Squads will be selected in mid-January. RugbyWA encourages all clubs to participate and to advise their players and coaches of this opportunity as soon as possible.

If you wonder what the relevance is- well for somethings there are no prescription drugs.
