From the Rogues Rant on the IDRU website:
Despite all the rain last weekend it was a great weekend at Bowral for the Country Championships. Of course winners are grinners and there were plenty around on Sunday with big grins on their faces at the end of the day. But spare a thought for Mark Freund and his Bowral club mates who took the weekend on at short notice after a suitable venue couldn’t be found in the Wollongong city area. The rain undoubtedly kept a lot of people away and the gate takings would have been severely affected. On top of that it’s going to take a lot of work up there to get the grounds back to a playable state after the pounding they took. Congratulations to everyone at Bowral for a job very well done. You have done the District proud.
