Its all about change for the CSU Mungoes and Mungals this season as they get ready to excel in a new rugby league competition – The Woodbridge Cup. The new comp will see the Mungoes versing 11 teams on a regular basis, compared to the 5-6 they have been versing in previous years.

Lily Walsh, the club’s co-president alongside Blake Schafer, is looking forward to the increased levels of competition in the Woodbridge cup.

“Versing people, we haven’t versed before, travelling further and playing a longer season of 14 rounds is really exciting,” said Walsh.

Another change for the club is the influx of female players to the Mungals team. With the club only fielding one female side, a selection process will take place for the 2022 season.

“This is the first time in Mungoes or Mungals history that we’ve had selection”, said Walsh.

Both the men’s and ladies’ sides are coming off strong wins in trial games against Oberon and St Pats, showing promise for the upcoming season. The Mungoes season began on Saturday the 23rd of April with both sides playing Grenfell, in Grenfell. This week will see Diggings Oval, host the first of many home games for the year.

“The Woodbridge Cup has given us a lot more home games than we had last year, which is really exciting as we lead into our 50th anniversary next year”, noted Walsh.

If you’re interested in getting involved with the Mungoes, the club offers social memberships valued at $55 that will get you a club polo, club sponsorship deals and entry to all club events. Alternatively home games occur at Diggings Oval every Saturday with the ladies kicking off at 1:30pm and men following after.
