The 2015 New Era Cup commenced on Saturday, with the CSU derby.
The defending champions, CSU Yellow started the year in convincing fashion, with a 52 points to 14 victory over CSU Blue at the Diggings Oval, on the CSU campus in Bathurst.
This weekend, CSU Yellow will head to Lithgow, for a match-up with the Bears, while CSU Blue head the other way, to Orange, where they’ll face the Barbarians!
The competition has expanded for 2015, with the Lithgow Giants joining the competition.
That means the season expands to 18 rounds, with two byes for each team, and the Grand Final to be held on September 19.
