Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport - Re­becca Par­ish

Rugby sides from across the Pil­bara will take over Marie Mar­land oval in Port Hed­land this weekend, when the in­au­gu­ral Pil­bara Rugby League round robin kicks off.

The Port Hed­land Hawks, Wick­ham Wasps, Kar­ratha Roost­ers, Storm and Bron­cos will com­pete in 10 games on Satur­day night.

Hawks pres­i­dent and event co­or­di­na­tor Luke Fit­tock said he ex­pected some tough com­pe­ti­tion at the event, adding he ex­pected up to 100 play­ers, ref­er­ees and coaches would take the field.

“There’s ob­vi­ously al­ways fierce com­pe­ti­tion,” he said.

The round robin which will in­clude full 13-player sides, will fol­low a day of play­ing for the league’s youngest as the ju­niors take to the field from 10am.

Fit­tock said he hoped the com­mu­nity would sup­port the event.

The event starts at 6.20pm.
