Mullumbimby Moonshiners Rugby Club

The Mullumbimby Moonshiners Rugby Club is looking to get back into the winner’s circle when they play a string of home games starting with a fixture against Wollongbar Alstonville Rugby (WAR).

Alby Lofts Oval in Brunswick Heads will host two games this Saturday, June 1, starting with the Moonshiners versus WAR in second grade at 1.50pm, followed by a first-grade encounter between WAR and Southern Cross University, kicking off at 3.15pm.

Coach Sati Siamoa says that wet weather cancellations and a draw heavy with byes means the side has had trouble building momentum.

With round six looming the side has had just three games, and has come away with one win in their first run of the season against Kyogle back in April.

‘The motivation can drop when you’re not playing week in and week out,’ he said.

Home advantage

The side is keen for a home game and while player numbers ‘haven’t been too bad’ so far this season, the side is ‘very strong’ at home, Sati said.

Their last encounter, two weeks ago, was a tough away game against Byron Shire Rebels who won 53–0, and are undefeated for the season.

‘We got touched up,’ Sati said.

Saturday’s task will be similar as they face WAR who are also undefeated so far in 2024.

‘We just have to stick with what we know,’ Sati said. ‘Stick with the patterns we work through at training’.

The side is also hoping to be buoyed by a strong local crowd.

After this week the mullumbimby Moonshiners have another bye before two more home games in a row.
