Junior Gold Cup Kicks Off This Weekend
The 2016 Melbourne Rebels Junior Gold Cup (JGC) U15 and U17 programs commence this Sunday 14 February at Harlequins Rugby Club Power Ave Ashwood.
The Junior Gold Cup (JGC) is a national long term talent development and competition program at U15 and U17 age levels.
In the first two season of the JGC our Melbourne Rebels sides have had some great success, seeing both sides compete in the final in 2014, with the U15s taking out the crown as U15 Champions.
In 2015 both sides make the semi finals against the ACT, with a lot of players from the U17s JGC squad transitioning into the Rebels U18s Schoolboys side.
Nic Henderson, Elite Pathways Manager said “We are looking forward to seeing the performance of the 2016 sides who have been training hard since October 2015 and no doubt there is some exciting young talent progressing through the community rugby pathways in Victoria”.
There is a great cross section of clubs and schools represented including Endeavour Hills, Footscray, Harlequins, Melbourne, Moorabbin, Northern, Powerhouse, Southern Districts and Wyndham City
Please attend this Sunday to support Victoria’s aspiring talent with the U15 game against Sydney North West at 11.00am followed by the U17s against Metro East at 12.30pm.
