A HIGHLANDS rugby league stalwart will be celebrated today, May 21.

Some junior teams from Moss Vale Dragons and Mittagong Lions will face off for the annual Bob Hall Cup at Community Oval.

The Dragons will host Lions in under-12s, under-14s, under-16As and under-16Bs for the cup.

Bob Hall has been actively involved in Group 6 Junior Rugby League (JRL) for more than 25 years.

Hall is also a life member of the Mittagong Rugby League Club.

Teams participating in the Bob Hall Cup will receive two points for each win today.

There will be a return round of games in the coming months at Mittagong Sports Ground.

The club that accumulates the most points from both rounds will win the cup.

The Bob Hall Cup was first contested in 2012.

Mittagong has won the cup every year.

The cup is usually contested during the pre-season, but the format was changed in 2016.

Lions junior club president Andrew Bayliss said it was a special event for both clubs.

“It’s a proud thing for our club because Bob is a life member.

“We hope to get everyone down there to support it,” he said.

Dragons junior president Matt Burke said he hoped his club would breakthrough for the cup win.

“Bob is a stalwart of the area, that’s why it’s named in his honour,” he said.

“Both clubs get along well off the field, but they hook in when they play against each other.

“We hope to keep interest in the old local rivalry.”
