Challenge is on for Gladstone’s league teams

RUGBY LEAGUE: Valleys’ league fields may have copped a drenching again this during the week, but however this time, Friday’s sunshine and wind have helped make the 10th Gladstone Valleys and Wallabys Challenge Cup a happening thing following the postponement of the event last week.

With hosts Valleys holding an 8-1 advantage in the annual challenge, first held in 2011, the Wallabys will be desperate to get enough wins to claim the cup.

Hosts Valleys hold an 8-1 advantage since the first pre-season challenge was held in 2011, but Wallabys will be keen to get enough wins and claim the cup.

There will be a total of 20 shortened versions of games, with the Division 1 showdown at 4.20pm.
