The Purcell’s Engineering Central Highlands Rugby League has today announced the draw for the 2016 season with Round 1 set to commence on Saturday 16th April.
Round 1 will see the top two teams of 2015 battle off in a Grand Final replay to kick off the 2016 season. Also in Round 1, Middlemount will play Cowboys, Tigers are set to meet Dysart in both the Ladies and Men’s competitions and Springsure hosts Blackwater.
Central Highlands Rugby League President Frank Lambley expects 2016 to be one of the biggest years of Rugby League in the Central Highlands and looks forward to it.
“Last year was one of the biggest years for Rugby League in the Central Highlands with one of the most exciting Finals’ series played out in recent years and this year, we hope to top it” Lambley said.
“I’m very much looking forward to the 2016 season and seeing all eight teams in the Men’s competition and five teams in the Ladies competition compete for the Purcell’s Engineering Premiership.”
This year’s season will also include various cause rounds which will raise awareness and funds for some of the biggest issues facing players around the Central Highlands and Australia. This includes: our Domestic Violence Prevention Round in partnership with the Queensland Police Service, Women in League Round acknowledging the hard work and dedication by many females in Rugby League and State of Mind Round, helping tackle the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Grand Final Day for 2016 is set down for Saturday September 3rd and only time will tell as to which four teams will be competing for the Men’s and Ladies premiership.
