NSW Cup Draw Announced
Thursday 20 December 2012 2:30 PM
More triple headers at NRL venues, a City versus Country Round and a better alignment with the Junior Representative competitions are just three of the new features of the 2013 VB NSW Cup draw.
The NSWRL has today released the full season draw with the competition consisting of a 26-week regular season, representative round, a four week Final Series and a Grand Final at ANZ Stadium.
“A lot of work has been put into this year’s draw and it is something we are very proud of,” NSWRL General Manager, Geoff Carr, said.
“We believe it will give the VB NSW Cup the best platform to build on the success it built in season 2012.”
2013 will also welcome competition newcomers the Wyong Roos, who will be steered around by Coach Paul Stringer and Assistant Coach Matt Orford.
The competition is set to begin on Saturday March 9 with the first game at Parramatta Stadium between Canberra’s and Parramatta’s feeder sides, Mounties and Wentworthville.
Mounties finished just outside of the top eight last year in their inaugural year in the NSW Cup and are striving to improve significantly in 2013.
