Club Rugby Season to Kick Off With Exciting Changes
The West Coast R.F.U have released the 2013 Senior club draw that will feature six teams for the upcoming season starting March 16th, which will include some exciting new changes for the season.
One of the highlights of this years club play is the introduction of the West Coast Club Player of the Year award, that will see players each week earn points that will culminate in a player being awarded the prize at the end of the season.
A further highlight will be the introduction of the three “Rivalry Round” weekends, which will feature local derbies between Kiwi v Wests, Blaketown v Marist, and in the battle for rural bragging rights, Grey Valley v South Westland.
These matches will be played once in each of the three rounds of club action, and will add an exciting element to the season.
West Coast R.F.U Chairman Colin Smith was excited about the upcoming season, and new changes to the year ahead “the Senior Player of the year award and “Rivalry Rounds” will add a new and exciting dimension to the Senior Competition this year, not only for players but also for spectators and supporters alike”.
“It is shaping up to be a very competitive season with a number of teams stating it is their intention to win the competition this year” Smith said.
