Lights on for rugby big guns

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - ROHAN O’NEIL

FRI­DAY night football has re­turned to the Townsville and Dis­trict Rugby Union ( TDRU) with four of the six first grade teams in ac­tion tonight.

Round 13 of the Dud­ley Jones Cup will kick off at 8.10pm to­day when sec­ond placed Broth­ers take on an in­form North Ward at the Hugh Street rugby grounds.

Both teams are com­ing off big wins in their most re­cent out­ings and North Ward will be keen to test them­selves against one of the com­pe­ti­tion’s best af­ter beat­ing Ross River by 15 points last round.

In tonight’s other game Teach­ers West will put their un­de­feated sea­son on the line when they take on a Ross River team des­per­ate to re­turn to top form.

Teach­ers will kick off against the Red­skins at 8.10pm tonight, with their home fans at War­rina Park hop­ing they can make it 14 con­sec­u­tive wins.

The round wraps up to­mor­row with Western Sub­urbs set to don spe­cial pink jer­seys to raise money for breast can­cer in their clash with Bur­dekin at River­way Oval.

Bur­dekin were dis­ap­point­ing last round against Broth­ers and will be out to si­lence a big Western Sub­urbs crowd at their Pink Lady fundrais­ing day.
