RECENT meetings of South Coast Rugby Union and Monaro Rugby Union decided to delay the introduction of a ‘Super Rugby’ format for the two unions until the 2015 season.
The proposed competition would have seen both unions joining for a middle round of rugby for the 12 teams in addition to playing home and away rounds in their respective competitions.
Some Clubs expressed concerns with commitment to the additional travel involved for this season and believe more planning is needed including the possibility of some games being played centrally for all teams as a Gala Day at either Bungendore or Braidwood.
Meanwhile the local competition looks not only to include a second team from Batemans Bay but there is renewed interest to form a team in the Bega Valley. Renewed interest has come from persons migrating to the area who are keen to reform a local team within the Bega Valley Shire area. A core group have already committed to playing but more are needed. Anyone interested in playing can contact Matt Gould 043 1405 170.
