Please be advised of the changes as to who will be eligible to host our Grand Finals this year on Saturday August 26
As with the past 2 years there will again still be a Top 5 Finals series for 1st Grade, 2nd Grade and Women’s 7-A-side.The
The 1st Grade Minor Premier’s Club will again host Week 2 of the Finals on Saturday August 12 where both Major & Minor Semi Finals will be held
The WINNER of the 1st Grade Major Semi Final will then be given the opportunity to HOST the Grand Finals on Saturday, August 26.
SIRU will still receive the Gate Takings from all the Finals (including the Grand Finals)
The SIRU Board voted in favour of this variation at their Board Meeting last week but please note the Board will Review the change at the end of the season and at the Council Meeting after this year’s AGM.
It must be stressed that these Changes will only happen whilst we (SIRU) continue with our current Competition Format (same number of Clubs) and that only 4 Grand Finals are played on Grand Finals Day
If either Wagga Ag or CSU hosts and wins a 1st Grade Major Semi Final these Finals will be played at Conolly Rugby Complex and the winning Club would be offered the exclusive rights to running both the Canteen and the Bar at Conolly on Aug 26
Changes to the Format for our Finals & Grand Finals were discussed at length by Club representatives at last year’s Council Meeting and the abovementioned change is the response from the Board
