It is something that the Dukes have been trying to do for 2 years, but this Saturday at Carrs Park the Alexandria Dukes RFC will be running a 2nd grade for the 1st time.
The Dukes had good numbers at preseason and were teetering on the edge of a 2nd team proper, but now with 5 new boys just this week, and 29 at training we can put ourselves forward.
The Dukes will play Waverley in a Halligan cup fixture at Carrs Park. This will lead straight into the 1st grade game vs St George.
The Halligan Cup is a pathway for us to grow, and with some luck we hope to make this a regular occurrence. It allows everyone match time and ability to pudh for positions.
So if you’re not got anything on get down to Carrs Park and watch history.
