It seemed like the rugby league season never really finished but things have ramped up in the past week.
Dubbo CYMS won its opening Challenge Cup game and will be in action against Wyong this weekend while the Western Rams' under 16s, 18s, and 23s will all play tomorrow.
Throw in the huge amount players with roots in the western area playing at the NRL Nines it's a massive couple of days for footy in this region.
As always, there's been plenty of rugby union and racing news as well while there's the little matter of the Western Zone Premier League cricket grand final between Bathurst and Dubbo on Sunday.
As the great Bill Lawry would say, it's all happening!
