The Woomera’s Vs. The Armigo’s – 8 Jul ’19  

Hi, to ensure that all players who travel to participate in the annual Woomera’s vs. Armigos (either at Port Macquarie or Newcastle), there is to be an inclusion of those from both squads/teams who would have perhaps missed out on a game by either roster or being a reserve, to play in conjunction with the Side Managers in two pairs games.

The addition to the original Golden Arm Trophy is the new Armageddon Shield: Clash of the Managers.

(No apologies will be provided or offered for the use of “ARMageddon” and “Shield” as this Clash of Managers will be a grudge match extraordinaire …… no doubt an epic battle of enduring historic and legendary importance!!!!!!!)

Each trophy or shield will be awarded on the usual total of points and margins.

Included below is the proposed NSW Woomeras team and a general overview of the anticipated program.

Hope everyone like me is really looking forward to this thoroughly enjoyable and challenging event. Cheers, Allan Starrett.

ABA says Woomera’s are: (a wooden Australian Aboriginal spear-throwing device. It serves as an extension of the human arm, enabling a spear to travel at a greater speed and force than possible with only the arm.)

Armigo’s are: (Male and friendly.)  Help me out here?
