Murgon will be the place to be for rugby league fans – again – with another huge day of football planned this Saturday at Murgon Showgrounds.
Games will be played across six fields for the annual Domestic Violence Awareness round.
This is the third year the Murgon Mustangs has hosted a DV Day to raise awareness in the community that there is “no excuse for abuse”.
The official opening ceremony will be held at 1:00pm.
Junior sides will be in action from 8:00am but the highlight of the day will be the Stanwell 9s which will feature South Burnett A Grade teams.
The final, which offers $1000 for the winner and $500 for the runner-up, will be played under lights from 7:15pm.
There’ll also be a women’s league game during the afternoon plus Murgon Under 16s will play a Round 3 game of the Toowoomba JRL competition, taking on Highfields.
Entry to the grounds is free and there’ll be free rides for the children.
The canteen will be open but this will be an alcohol-free event.
South Burnett Eagles women had two games scheduled for Friday night.
The U14s and U17s were due to play Warwick in Toowoomba as part of the Toowoomba Junior Rugby League competition.
The Open side are scheduled to play Nambour on Saturday in Murgon during the DV Awareness family fun day.
Twenty-seven South Burnett Eagles have secured spots with the Wide Bay Bulls after putting in strong performances at the 47th Battalion junior rugby league trials held in Murgon last Saturday.
The young players impressed selectors during their games against visiting Fraser Coast and Bundaberg sides.
The 47th Battalion competition featured 50-minute games for U13 boys, U14 boys, U14 girls, U16 boys and U16 girls played across two fields.
