Sports Talk (25/7/20)

July 25 2020

Due to the virus, Rovers Seniors and Reserves teams in Football and Rovers A Grade, B Grade, C Grade and C Reserves are unable to play in competition this year.

But kids are able to and so the Rovers taken on Blighty in Blighty in Round 1 of competition.

This year will forever be known as the season that started in July and without any Adults on the court or field.


Thirds won 12.10 – 82 to 2.5 – 17
Fourths won 19.19 – 133 to 2.5 – 17


Under 17’s won 49 to 30
Under 15’s won 31 to 16
Under 13’s won 53 to 2


It was a clean sweep for the Rovers today, the perfect way to start a season no matter how topsy turvy the world is at the moment.

The Rovers had multiple goal kickers in both of their matches which is always good to see.

Here is how the season is going to look for the Rovers sides in this four team competition.

Round 2 – Jerilderie (Home)
Round 3 – Berrigan (Home)
Round 4 – Blighty  (Home)
Round 5 – Jerilderie (Away)
Round 6 – Berrigan (Away)

We’ll be back next week with a new edition of Sports Talk.


Football coming to Narrandera

AFL Football is coming to Narrandera Sports Ground this weekend as the GWS Giants take on the West Coast Eagles as part of the JLT Community Series.

Its the first time since 2010 that a game has come to Narrandera and there is no doubt that Deniliquin will be watching with great interest as Edward River Council are on the hunt for national sports events and a football game could be on the shopping list.

The closest football matches to Deniliquin during this JLT Community Series are Essendon vs. Geelong in Bendigo and St Kilda vs. Sydney in Albury on March 12.

The weather for the game is expected to be 26 degrees, that temperature is eight degrees lower than todays maximum of 34 making it a pleasant afternoon for football.

Match starts at 2:05pm.
