The clash between undefeated Dubbo CYMS and the in-form Nyngan Tigers headlines this weekend’s action but there is plenty to play for in the other two matches in round six.

The round began last weekend with Parkes blitzing Forbes out side on the way to a Chad Porter-inspired victory while this weekend sees the Fishies host the Tigers and Wellington tackle Macquarie on Saturday while one of Westside and Narromine will score a first win of 2017 on Sunday.

Here’s how the sides will line up.
