Many of the representatives from each of the 23 participating teams where on hand this past Friday afternoon at the Imperial Hotel, Singleton for the official competition pools draw of the A-Plus Contracting Hunter Valley Mining Charity Rugby League Day.
Given the popularity of the event the pools structure has had to take on a alternative structure in 2019 with Pools A & B comprising of 6 teams, Pool C of 5 teams and Pool D of 4 teams. The uneven number of team in Pool C will see two teams (Mount Pleasant Phoenix & HV United Cobras) play three games due uneven numbers. This will also mean that the three remaining teams will be provided 1 additional point to make it equitable. It is worth noting that point differences played consider role in deciding pool winners in 2018.
We are also excited to have the additional of our 'Women in Mining Series' which will see the Hunter Hawkettes and Valley Vixens battle it out during a best of 3 series.
