The 1st round game is upon us. The Dukes take on our old foe Burraneer for the start of the Meldrum season.
It gives me great pleasure to announce the starting XV for the game. There are 7 players making their starting debut for the Dukes, which shows just how much our club has changed, but the number of players we have available shows how much we have grown.
As per Joel’s comment’s at training we will name our bench on match day, but the expectation is that every player available is prepared to play.
Round 2 will see the Dukes take on St George who are back in the competition after dropping out a few weeks ago.
You may have seen that the competition structure is now final with a North and South Conference. See below for the break down.
There will be 4 team semi finals in both conferences and the winner of each will play off for the Meldrum Cup.
