Saturday 4th December 2021 will see the return of NT Rugby's City vs Country clash.
The Bet Deck City vs Country event will see players from across the territory converge on Darwin's Rugby Park to see who has the edge, the city slickers or the country cowboys. Teams will complete across five divisions commencing at 3:00pm.
The five competing divisions are Under 12s Mixed, Under 14s Boys, Under 16s Boys, Open Women and Open Men. The City teams are comprised of Darwin club players from Casuarina Cougars, Darwin Dragons, South Darwin Rabbitohs and University Pirates. The NT Country sides are filled with players from Palmerston Crocs, Swampdogs, MacKillop Saints, Taminmin College, Nhulunbuy, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs. With the current COVID-19 restrictions in and around Katherine, the decision was made to not incorporate Katherine and Tindal players for this event.
NT Rugby wishes to thank Bet Deck for their support with the City vs Country concept allowing the regional players to attend the event in Darwin. Bet Deck is 100% Australian owned and based in the Northern Territory. Check them out here https://betdeck.com.au/
