Barbarians won’t compete in the 2021 Wallerawang Landscaping Cup competition | Central Western Daily

Sport, local sport,

After eleven years in the Wallerawang Landscaping Cup, Orange Barbarians have officially withdrawn from the competition, citing the lack of players and committee members as the reason for the decision. It felt inevitable among Midwestern experts when longtime board member Paul Rudd first announced the issue earlier in the year, calling on everyone to lend a hand behind the scenes or in the field. The club have been fortunate to recruit multiple players last season as Group 10 regulars were looking for some action while the top tier competition was canceled. But with the resumption of Hawks and CYMS, most of those players made the decision to leave. The Barbarians had a successful run in the competition after leaving rugby union ahead of the 2011 season. The men, led by Mitchell Britt, Jake Kelly and Ben Gosper, were perennial finalists despite not winning a Premier League for the entire decade. The withdrawal leaves the Wallerawang Landscaping Cup in a difficult position as only five teams have confirmed their entry this winter. Kandos Waratahs, Portland Colts, CSU Mungoes, Orange United and Oberon Tigers are the clubs on deck, while the Kandos Waratahs are still open to participation. The cargo returns to the Woodbridge Cup. The same number of clubs will also compete for the league’s title race. Oberon men and CSU women will try to defend their titles this year.
