NSW Uni v “That State”

After a 2 year hiatus University Representative Rugby League is back and up in the state where the sun shines all the time (Apparently!) the AURL Interstate Challenge will take place this Saturday at Maroochydore Rugby Leagues Club.

Faced with over 80 applications this year from all over this great state, NSW Uni Selectors narrowed it down, to the best of the best to take on the banana benders on there home turf.

With the squad selected head coach Luke Mutton along with his assistant coach Drew Dalton and support staff, gathered the boys for a one-off training session 10 days prior to them departing for camp.

Arriving on the Sunshine Coast last Wednesday and with the game in less than 72 hours the squad trained hard, being put through their paces with 3 tough sessions and pool recovery, before a lighter captains run on Friday afternoon in preparation of the match.

But we are not here to talk about all the fun, this story is a about redemption with the boys north of the border still holding the trophy after their crushing victory over NSW Uni in 2019, but this year our boys are ready and will be looking to take another bit of silverware away, so the Sunshine state is a little less shinny!

So with state pride on the line and a spot in the AURL touring squad, you can add the Australian University Rugby League Interstate match to the feast of NSW v “That State” matches this week and weekend.
