Stallions ready to tackle 2014

With the 2014 Rugby League season almost underway the Stallions are raring to go.

The Stallions committee have been working hard during the off season to ensure another successful season for the club.

As well as having all four coaches already appointed, the club have also recruited well and are in talks with three players from England.

"Although a few Stallions have moved on a number of new players are arriving. The English theme has carried on and the club are in talks with three players. These three will add another level of interest to the club should the talks be successful and all three have representative football behind then and are looking forward to a season in Cooma," Stallions president Craig Schofield said.

"There are also a number of talented juniors coming into the senior grades. These boys, combined with a few of the old heads, will make it tough on the coach on getting the combinations right. It is certainly a good position to be in."

The club will also be stregthened with the addition of players from Bombala joining this season.

"With the Bombala and Cooma combination we can hopefully give the coastal comp a real shake," Schofield said.

"This will increase the depth in the club and the reserve grade hope to continue on from last year's success and add another premiership to the Stallions."

Schofield also put the call out for anyone women interested in joining the Fillies league-tag side.

"The Fillies will be as strong as ever but with the retirement and relocation of a number of the girls they are looking for any interested ladies that might want to come along and give league-tag a go," he said.

"I can guarantee a fun year and at the end of the season a fitter you. These ladies have been in the last three grand finals and certainly know how to compete successfully as well as having fun along the way."

Another new concept for the group will be a representative Indigenous v Group 16 All-Stars game to be held on the Anzac Day weekend. This will also include a league-tag representative game which will include teams made up of rep players from North and South of Group 16. The Fillies are hoping to be well represented in this.

Stallions training will start at 6pm Tuesday February 11 at the Cooma Showground.
