2015 unfortunately saw the Miners go down to Dandenong in the first week of finals in front of more than 100 Ballarat supporters. And although the Rush had a slow start to their season they did finish strongly beating three teams that made finals (Geelong, Brisbane and Nunawading).
2016 is shaping up to be a big season, Melbourne Tigers have re-joined SEABL and we looking forward to hosting them on Sunday July 31. Other big games in 2016 include the annual season opener on Friday April 1 against Bendigo and, a Saturday school holiday classic against Geelong on Saturday July 2. We are also pleased to hold a women’s double header on Saturday May 7 with the Youth League Rush tipping off at 6pm followed by SEABL Rush at 8pm.
