Barney Rubble’s 2016 Rugby Review – Rd 8 v Pirates

Barney Rubble’s 2016 Rugby Review – Rd 8 v Pirates

From their website

Another cold and damp weekend saw the Blue Boars headed to Tamworth to take on the Pirates in four grades as all Narrabri teams finally got to play at the same venue for the first time this season.

The Under 16’s kicked off the day’s play as they took on the young Buccaneers. For both junior grades it was the first time the Boars and Pirates had met for the season as the 6 team draw had somehow kept them apart for the first 8 rounds. But with two more clashes to between them to come it would give a good indication of where the two clubs colts were at. Unfortunately the Piglets struggled to get in the game and went down 40-5. The disappointment was clear to see, no more so than on Big Ben Atkinson’s face. Benno refused to be consoled after the match but will no doubt use it to lead the charge when Pirates come to visit Dangar Park.

Whitehaven's Paul Flynn responds to concerns from Maules Creek farmers

Whitehaven says it is not necessary to apply a new condition to its Maules Creek mine preventing blasting when the winds blows in a north westerly direction.

The company's CEO, Paul Flynn says while the mine agreed to a similar condition at its Werris Creek mine, the situation is different at Maules Creek and is not needed.
He is speaking to Kelly Fuller on ABC New England North West after the ABC Australian Story on the situation:
