Second trial sees Dukes take on heavy opposition

Hot off their 33-31 win against the Rouse Hill Renegades in the Indianna Trophy match, the Dukes are set to take on 2 of the formidable opponents in their upcoming second trial at Botany this coming Saturday. The games kick off in a round robin format from 1.30pm at Booralee Park and is set to be a great afternoon of Subbies rugby.

The Engadine Lions have been a mainstay in the Division 6 finals fixtures since their reentry into the Subbies competition in 2015. Always a tough match up on the field, the Lions will be a hard hitting and fast outfit this coming weekend.

The second of the teams, Sydney Convicts, are the reigning Bingham Cup champions and have taken home the Cup 5 of the last 7 times (’06, ’08, ’12, ’14 and ’18). Fresh off a very competitive 2018 campaign where they were unlucky not to make the finals, the Convicts bring strong numbers (2 teams) to the trial this weekend.

Have a look below for the tentative draw for the day.
