2017 NSW Country Rugby Player Award Winners

2017 NSW Country Rugby Player Award Winners

The NSW Country Representative season has come to a close on the weekend with the annual Sydney Juniors vs Country Juniors played in a very cold and windy Bathurst.

The representative season has taken boys, girls men and women from all zones around the state to Canberra, Auckland, Camden, Newcastle and the Gold Coast just to mention a few.

The energy, effort and the passion that goes into making these representative pathways a reality for players is truly amazing. NSW Country Rugby is built on the wonderful work done by passionate people that want to make Country Rugby a enjoyable experience every time they put on the burnt gold!

All the coaches, managers and administrators do a massive amount of work coordinating players from all the corners of the state to provide access and opportunity to the state and national pathway.
