It will be a June long weekend full of footy action with largest club rugby tournament in the nation, the NSWJRU State Championships, being held in venues around Sydney and Orange.

More than 115 teams and 2,600 players in the Under-11 to Under-17 age categories, together with more than 500 officials will take part in the event. All participants involved over the weekend play in regular Club competitions within NSW. There are also invited teams from ACT, Victoria, and the southern inland region competing.

Different age groups are hosted at various venues ranging from Drummoyne and Concord in Sydney to Camden on Sydney’s outskirts and to Mudgee and Orange in the Central West. For the first time ever there will be competition playing on the synthetic fields of Blackman Park in Lane Cove when the Under-11 age group takes to the field.

Large crowds of spectators are expected at all venues, in particular the St Luke’s Fields at Concord where the Under-16 and Under-17 age groups will play, and there will be many watchful eyes looking for the next generation of Waratahs stars.

Country visitors are expected at all Sydney venues whilst there will be an exodus of Sydney residents on Friday heading for Orange (U14) and Mudgee (U15), with Orange City Council again providing significant support to the Championships.

The Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 age groups will be viewed with interest as for the very first time the Country Championships are being held in conjunction with the State Championships. These age groups are also the start of the State Representative pathway and games will be viewed with interest by selectors from both Sydney and Country.

The Under-10 age group, which represents a further 24 teams and 440 players will participate in a tournament in late June.
