Wolves map out the 2016 season
By JEFF GEDDES
THE first draft draw for the 2016 Group 10 season has been released with Workmens Club Wolves away for their first match against Bathurst St Patricks on April 10.
The Wolves will start their campaign next Tuesday with training starting at the Lithgow Showground at 6pm.
All four grades (premier league, first division, under 18s and Oz League) will start their training and everyone wanting to have a run are more than welcome to attend.
Premier league coach Johnathan Van Veen is keen to see what players he will have at his disposal with a number of the younger players from under 18s coming into contention.
Local fans will have to wait to round two to see their side when the Wolves will be at home to Oberon on April 17.
The third round sees in a replay of last year’s grand final when they take on Orange CYMS at Orange.
CYMS has bolstered their side even more since winning the title and it will be a real test for the Johnathan Van Veen captained coached Wolves side.
In round four, they will have a bye before being at home against Cowra in the fifth round to be played on May 8.
The semi finals have been set down for August 28 and September 4; the final will be played on September 11 and the grand final on September 18.
NOTE: The NRL match to be played at Bathurst on April 30 will see all games played on the Sunday.
There is a spare weekend in round two for washouts and if no washouts a general bye will take place on August 7.
The grand final has been pushed back a week to avoid clashing with Group 11.
