The Bathurst Giants, after a record-breaking 2018 having made their maiden finals appearance, kick off the 2019 campaign against a strong Bushrangers Rebels outfit. The Rebels are coming off a 21 point Round 1 win against Dubbo Demons. and with some new faces and key departures at both teams over the off-season, this local derby is one game you do not want to miss.
2:30 PM MULYAN OVAL
Both Cowra Blues and Dubbo Demons suffered opening round losses, but at home, and with a close-to-full-strength side, could this Round 2 clash present a great opportunity for Cowra to get on the board with a win? Dubbo last week looked like a team which will challenge for the finals and it will be interesting to see how they respond in Cowra.
Bathurst Bushrangers Outlaws
2:30 PM WARATAHS ORANGE
The Byrne-Long Trophy is a longstanding tradition between the Orange Tigers and Bathurst Bushrangers and both teams always find something extra for these encounters.
