The Bushpigs are headed to Braidwood on Saturday 8 February for the Braidwood Bushfire 7s.

They’ll join teams from all around the state in the pre-season 7s tournament, that aims to give the town a much needed boost after the horror bushfire season in recent months.

Jindabyne Rugby Union Club is sending four teams: Men’s, Women’s, U16 Girls and U16s Boys.

The forecast is for wet and cool conditions, which will actually be welcomed on this occasion!
