The 2014 McDonalds Junior Rugby Union Season concludes on Friday Night with four Grand Finals, five Premierships, eleven games of Rugby from Under 5 to Under 17 and the presentation of over 300 medals and trophies to our budding champions.

For the Under 5s and 7s it is Round 17 of their Walla Rugby Season with all players receiving a participation medal.

The Under 9s is the first age division where a Premiership is awarded. 

With no finals series per se, Casuarina by virtue of leading the Competition at the end of the Round Robin will be acknowledged as Premiers.

The first Grand Final of the night will be the Under 11s when Swampdogs take on University.

The pups from the rural area only lost one match during the season and will be favourites to defeat the young Pirates.

In the Under 13s Palmerston will take on Casuarina.  The Crocs amassed 774 points in their 15 matches whilst conceding 205

Swampdogs and Darwin Dragons are bound to put on a great game of Rugby in the Under 15s.

In the Under 17s the Minor Premiers from Palmerston will need to make sure they don’t underestimate the unpredictable Darwin Dragons.

NT Rugby will also present a Player of the Year award  in each age division from Under 9s to Under 17s
