It’s a huge weekend for local footy with Thirroul Butchers taking on Helensburgh Tigers in the final of the Cash Back App Challenge Cup.
In a Coal League Grand Final replay, it’s a local derby for the Northern Illawarra, at Collegians Sporting Complex on Sunday June 14. Kick off is at 3pm.
The Butchers earned their spot by defeating Wests 18-14, while Helensburgh defeated Corrimal 32-16.
The Cash Back App Challenge Cup is a knockout comp which included teams from the Illawarra Coal League, up against the Gymea Gorillas (crashed by Dragons Great Graeme Wynn) and the Engadine Dragons, who are the reigning premiers in the Cronulla District JRFL.
But the northerners weren’t strong enough for our local boys, who face off on Sunday in Figtree in what will be a hard-fought battle for the premiership.
