The Cash Back App Illawarra Challenge Cup - Round 1 Media Call

The Illawarra Coal League gets its 2015 season underway this weekend when The Cash Back App Illawarra Challenge Cup kicks off with a double header at Helensburgh’s Rex Jackson Oval.

Saturday’s Round 1 games in this knockout style competition feature Gymea Gorillas taking on the rebuilding Corrimal Cougars at 3.00pm. This will be followed by the Helensburgh Tigers taking on Aquinas Colts at 4.30pm.

Local media are invited to attend our media call which will see one of the Cougar’s key signings in centre Jorden Tencate in attendance to discuss their preparations for the Cash Back App Illawarra Challenge Cup and the 2015 Illawarra Coal League season.

The Illawarra Coal Cutters will make their first home appearance at WIN Stadium on Saturday when they host the North Sydney Bears in Round 3 of the NSW Cup. The Cutters have been in winning positions in both games played to date but finished as narrow losers on both occasions, and will look to this weekend to get their 2015 campaign underway. Cutters winger Tyrone Cranston will be also in attendance to discuss their chances of a break-through win on Saturday.
