Super Saturday goes off at Dalby

It was a huge day of Rugby today, as thousands converged on the Leagues Club, AFL grounds and the Dalby Wheatmen home grounds to squeeze in 88 games in a day.

Former Australian Universities captain, Paramatta Eels player and National Party leader Mike Horan said it was a tribute to the standard of rugby on the Downs.

"Congratulations to the Dalby club,” he said.

"It must be nearly a record to have 88 games in a day.”

For the senior players, the day marked the elimination round of the finals.

Dalby had great success in the A-grade, as they defeated Rangers 41-26, putting them through to the Grand Final.

A-grade coach Nathan Bradley said the side had just done what they'd done all season.

In the Reserve grade, Dalby defeated the Toowoomba Bears 42-29, putting them through to the next round as well.

Sadly for the Condamine Cods, today marked the end of their season as they went down to the reigning premiers, Goondiwindi, 38-19.

Full reports can be found in the Dalby Herald, published Tuesdays and Fridays.
