The Fighting Miners failed in their quest to win back-to-back premierships when they were defeated by the Puckapunyal Boars 6-5 in a quagmire at Puckapunyal last Saturday.
Torrential rain had covered the playing surface with about 50mm of water which soon cut up to become a quagmire. Adding to the difficult conditions were intermittent downpours and a strong wind.
The Fighting Miners suffered their first ever defeat at the hands of the Cobram Dust Devils at Koonoomoo last Saturday. The Dust Devils entered the competition in 2008 but have not been competitive until the current season.
It wasn’t that long ago that the British peoples were spilling each others blood on the battlefield and even though we now coexist under one united banner, (blame the Act of Union) not a great deal has changed . These days Twickenham, Croke Park, Murrayfield and The Millenium Stadium are our battlefields where lines are drawn and blood frequently spilt. But as serious as a rugby union international is, there is nothing but humorous banter between supporters.
Bendigo Fighting Miners rugby union team not only celebrate 40 years of outstanding country rugby in 2010, they are also putting out a call for youth players. So, if you, or anyone you know, would like to participate in a safe and positive environment, contact Mark Luatutu on 0427315067.

It’s great to hear that the Bendigo Fighting Miners have wrapped up the season with two games in hand. It’s also nice to see their continued and considerable efforts rewarded with a mention in local press.
