A Farm Hard Knockout will be held as one of the curtain raisers to the much anticipated Classic Wallabies match on March 23, in an effort to promote men's health.

Teams of two will compete against each other in a number of farm activities, with the winner of each challenge progressing through and the loser eliminated. 

Competitors will be tasked with completing the same activities that farmers do on a daily basis.

There will be four events that participants will be competing in, truck loads, drum storage, rubber sleddin and tirade of flipping.

It will be run by Taurus Trainer exercise physiologist Steven Roberts, who ran a very successful competition in Warren back in 2015, which he said got tremendous feedback.

"People just sort of talk about it as one of the best things they've done," Roberts said.

"Friendly competition, getting to test yourself."

Roberts got the idea to run the knockout at the Moree Classic Wallabies event after he was involved at the Orange Classic Wallabies match in November 2018.

"It was evident a lot of the guys who weren't playing football probably wanted to join the occasion physically," he said.

"I felt like it was a good opportunity at the Classic Wallabies."

The event will run from 12pm to 12.45pm and you can register for it at https://taurustrainer.typeform.com/to/WfYnLk or from 11.30am on the day.
