Moree juniors star at rugby gala day in Inverell

Moree's junior rugby players made the trip across to Inverell for the second gala day in the Central North junior rugby season on Sunday.

Moree had sides compete across all age groups, including under-6s, under-8s, under-10s and under-12s, going up against sides from Inverell, Armidale, Tamworth, Gunnedah, Walcha, Narrabri, Coonabarabran, Quirindi, Barraba and Scone.

With COVID-19 restrictions in place, the gala day was held across two grounds - the Inverell Sporting Complex and Inverell Rugby Park - as well as a morning and afternoon session to split up the games.


Each team played three games across the day, with some teams with smaller numbers combining to ensure everyone got a run.

After a long hiatus, all the players have enjoyed getting back on the field and playing some rugby.

"It was quite a different carnival but it was good. Everyone got lots of footy and we had a really good level of attendance," Inverell Junior Rugby Club president James Roger said.

The juniors will next travel to Gunnedah for another gala day this Sunday, August 9.
