The Boggabri and District Rugby League club’s ladies’ tackle nines side will play its final game today when the side takes on Werris Creek Magpies at Ken Chillingworth Oval.

Boggabri opened its campaign in the best possible way by defeating South West Robins 36-20 in round one.

The Kangaroos could not continue the fine form they showed in the first round as they were beaten by the Kootingal-Moonbi Roosters in round two.


The side will be looking to bounce back in the final game against the Magpies this afternoon at 2.15pm.

That task will not be easy as Werris Creek currently sits on top of the table boasting two victories.

If Boggabri was to pick up a win the side could finish first, second or third, depending on the margin of victory.

However a first place finish seems unlikely with the Kangaroos needing a 29 point victory against the Magpies, which have conceded 12 points in the two rounds played, as well as a Kootingal loss.

Boggabri Kangaroos president Greg Haire said that he is confident that the Kangaroos would fight hard against Werris Creek.

“They just didn’t play very well in the last match,” he said.

“The team just dropped the ball too many times early in the set. They dropped the ball about four times on the first tackle. That tired them out because they just had to keep tackling. But they will battle against the Creek, no doubt.”

Haire said the side has been preparing its attack throughout the week.

“Most of the side played touch in Gunnedah on Tuesday night,” he said.

“So they all decided on training Thursday and Friday night. Pretty busy schedule I’d say. We’ve got a couple of good attacking players in the side.”
