Winter 2024 – getting cracking

Team Captains,

So Winter 2024 is up and about, we finished grading, two weeks ago (although I still do regrade over the season) and this is our biggest Winter season ever! Some things to highlight over the coming weeks


Our women’s and our inaugural short men’s competition are now complete and the final night and presentations were a blast.

The focus is now exclusively on mixed for the next 13 weeks. At this stage the only nights with byes will be the state of origin nights. On origins 1 and 3 a quarter of the teams will have the bye. Game 2 is in Melbourne so there will be no competition games scheduled (although teams can request a non competition fixture)

State of origin 1

This Wednesday game 1 of state of origin and we are running our usual abbreviated nights with only three slots starting at 6pm. This means that again 25% of teams have a bye but it also means that every team playing can catch the game (those playing in the last slot would miss the first 20 minutes). The match will be on at the Great Northern Hotel and we shall have extra vouchers and we highly encourage teams playing to catch up for dinner and origin after their game.

At PPT touch is there to facilitate the social side. So lock in this Wednesday, book a table for your team, grab a drink voucher from the referees for your team and join us at the pub. It will be a great night.

Prioritising social

Our priority is the social side. That is why we have the vouchers every week but it is also why we invite every team 1-2 times per season to join us for presidents drinks. We do this and we want to uphold the rugby tradition of a post match drink with the opposition. This is at the heart of what we do so if your team is invited (and it is noted on the fixture), attendance is expected.

Signing on

This must improve, as per the faq everyone should sign on every week. It takes 30 seconds

Teams lists

Every team needs to send me a team list (if they’ve not .already)already Just names should suffice as if people are signing on they are already in the system. Note you can add players later (just make sure you send me their name)


We need everyone in uniform every week. Its week 3 so the only excuse is if a team has a new set of uniforms on order and has let us know. Everyone else should be uniform.  Fill ins should not be a frequent occurrence (if you need players let us know), but if they are teams should have spare tops for them.
