The town of Ararat has just opened their new state of the art Community & Recreation Centre at Alexandra Oval and it’s an opportune time to showcase this facility by bringing a TAC CUP game to Ararat.
The Rebels are coming off a week break after six straight wins. The most recent was a tight 13 point win over Gippsland Power at Eureka Stadium. The Rebels were able to come out winners despite being beaten around the contest in the first half against a hard and strong Gippsland Power outfit.
Their opponents in the Dragons are coming off a 50 point loss to the Murray Bushrangers on the road in their last matchup and will be looking to turn this around on Sunday.
The Rebels have made a few changes to their line up this weekend including a TAC CUP debutant for this week’s clash. Nhill’s Jake McQueen will debut as the 23rd player for the Rebels whilst Shannon Beks, Sam McClure, Charlie Lee and Tom Williamson are included back into the Rebels line up.
This week the Rebels and all clubs within Western Victoria will be wearing White Armbands to help raise increasing awareness of supporting the prevention of violence against women through the White Ribbon Foundation.
In Australia, two women a week are currently killed by their current or former partner. Domestic violence is also the single leading contributor to death, disability and illness for Victorian women aged 15 to 44. The extent of men’s violence against women is one of Australia’s most shameful secrets. The community is driving change to prevent this violence and we encourage you all to join us in the movement.
