Masters Rugby League is on its way to Sydney's Hills District, with the Polecats Rugby League club set to enter the region's first team into the Sydney wide competition in 2007.
The Polecats, who currently have three teams in the NSW Tertiary League competition, have opened the doors for past players in the region to join the exciting new version of Rugby League.
First formed in New Zealand, Masters Rugby League allows past players over the age of 35 to showcase their skills and abilities in a team environment on the field, but with the risk of injury significantly reduced and with games played in a social, non-competitive nature.
Matches take place on the third Saturday of each month, allowing players to keep fit and play the game they love with their mates, but without the game intruding on business and family commitments. Game day will be in the format of a cluster day, meaning all teams will play at the same venue on the same day in a fun family like atmosphere.
In 2006, 22 teams competed in the Sydney Masters Rugby League competition, primarily from the Penrith and Manly regions. In 2007, teams from Buddgewoi, Central Coast, Warragamba and Windsor will be just some of the new areas which join the Masters Rugby League competition.
