Hunter ICL04 Preview
The nine clubs of the Greater Hunter region are all set to battle once again to decide who will be the Hunter Interclub Champion for ICL04.
It gets underway this weekend at the Maitland Triathlon, the first of four rounds. Singleton Triathlon Club host Round 2 in March, whilst the Tomaree Triathlon Club host Round 3 in April.
Club Champs in Forster in late May is the final round.
The Maitland Magic were unstoppable last year and will have high hopes of staying on top in the region this season.
The biggest challenge for Maitland is likely to come from one of Central Coast, Newcastle or Tomaree.
Keep an eye out for the Port Macquarie Pelicans however as they are notorious for their Club Champs performances.
The Forster Breakers, Scone Stormers, Singleton Swoopers and the Lake Mac Triple Threats will likely fight it out for placings in the middle of the ladder.
