It will be a local derby this weekend when Portland and Wallerawang meet in the first round of the New Era Cup.
Wallerawang will hold the home town advantage and will certainly be bringing form, after finishing in the runner-up position at the New Era Cup knockout.
The Lithgow Bears will be playing away, facing the Villages. In other games, Kandos takes on CSU Blue, while the Barbarians face CSU Yellow. Ten teams are contesting the New Era Cup 2017.
