News, local news,

Charles Sturt University’s Diggings Oval will host 10 teams from six clubs for the 2021 Mid West Cup knockout on Saturday.

Mid West Cup President Dallas Booth said the round of 16 will be a solid preseason success for participating clubs. “It will be a good achievement for the clubs to work on some combinations and get some match fitness. Most of the teams have already played in a knockout or a test so it will somehow build on that,” he said. “The season doesn’t start towards the end of April, so it will be a good success before we have three to four weeks before the season starts.” In the men’s category, each team competes once against each other, with the two best teams contesting a final. In the women’s competition, CSU, Lithgow and Orange United will be in one group together, and Kandos, Oberon and Portland in the other. The winner of each group will contest the final. In this competition, the Portland Colts are returning and the club is withdrawing its men and women for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The university campus has held up well after the long period of rain and is expected to be in good shape for Saturday’s games.
