Over-35s ready to de­fend their ti­tle as sea­son starts

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE Spring Cup will kick off on Oc­to­ber 9, with five teams from around the re­gion.

Isis Rugby Union vice-pres­i­dent Brett Phillips said the teams were ready to play the Fal­cons.

“Our aim is to go one bet­ter then last year,” he said.

The over-35s team, the Su­gar­dad­dys, won last year’s Bob Kiri Cup.

“The cup is bet­ter known as the Bloody Slow Cup. We are all a lot slower and in­juries take longer to get over,” he said.

It’s all in fun and the teams are ex­cited to get the games un­der way.

This sea­son the cup games will kick off at the ATW Grounds, with the first game at 6.30pm be­tween the Bar­bar­ians and the Tur­tles, fol­lowed by the sec­ond game at 8pm with Isis and the Fal­cons.

First team on a bye will be the Pythons.
