Bringing it home: The FSC Falcons U15s girls rugby union team will take on Canberra's Vikings in one of three games at the Bega Recreation Ground on Saturday.

Top of the table teams the Far South Coast Falcons and the Flying Piglets will play Girls 10 a side Rugby Union in Bega on Saturday.

Both teams play in the ACT and Southern NSW Junior Rugby Union Competition - the first of its kind in Australia, and both teams are unbeaten so far this season.

This will be the first home turf draw for the girls, who are based at Tathra, but travel from Eden in the south and Batemans Bay in the north. 

“They'll be running on to the Bega Rec Ground – due to unavailability at Tathra - to a home crowd and are really looking forward to playing in front of their families and friends,” a spokeswoman said. 

Games will run from 11am with the Falcons 15s contesting the Vikings. 

Then the Jindabyne Miss Piglets with play Daramalan at noon and then 1pm sees the Piglets and Jindabyne combine as the “Flying Piglets”. 

The Far South Coast Falcons Rugby Union Club is a newly formed club and has been assisted throughout the season by the experience of the Jindabyne Rugby Union Club and former Wallaby great Gary Pearse. 

Jindabyne players Rhianna and Kirra Burke lead a tough and fast U17s Flying Piglets team featuring Pambula's Tamika Millard and Batemans Bay's Jada Flanagan.

"The Falcons and the Flying Piglets are going to be bringing their best on Saturday," coach Scott Harris said.

"Spectators will not be disappointed. We hope a lot of people come to the games to see what all the fuss is about and to support the girls, they've been on the road for 6 rounds - time to bring it home," he said.
