It’s just over one week before the Boorowa league teams head into their first trial game with the intensity of preseason training really picking up the pace.

Both the Rovers and Roverettes have been working very hard in preseason with good numbers attending training despite the difficult weather conditions of late.

Both teams have been getting over twenty players to their sessions and hopefully these numbers will increase as the summer sports come to a close and the league season dawns.

The first trial game for both teams will be on Saturday week against the Grenfell Goannas with a 5pm kick off for the girls whilst the lads take to the field at 6pm. Hopefully the weather will be kind.

Recently the Rovers played in a “Battle of the Codes” touch football day in Canberra at Viking Park.

This was a very worthwhile charity day for the Tara Costigan Foundation which continues the ongoing battle of preventing violence against women.

The boys played against teams from every code in Canberra including the ACT representative team, with the Queanbeyan Whites Rugby Union team taking overall honours. It was a tremendous day for a very good cause and also served as a good hit out for the Rovers under the guidance of coach Josh Burns.

The next event on the preseason calendar is this Saturday night’s annual bowls evening at the Ex-Services club. This is open to everyone at a cost of just $10 per head that includes green fees and a BBQ dinner with heaps of prizes and a raffle. This is a fantastic evening and a great chance to get to know your Boorowa Rovers and Roverettes for the coming season.

And last but not least, head to the Courthouse Hotel on Saturday nights where the Jackpot Joker Draw is on offer. It’s got to go off sometime so why not be there.
