Mayor Des Kennedy said he is thrilled to welcome back Manly for its third home game in Mudgee.
“The club has won every time they’ve played here in Mudgee, last year defeating the Canberra Raiders 25-6 in front of a crowd of 6972 people,” Cr Kennedy said.
“This event generated $1.4 million for our local economy, demonstrating that the benefits of hosting major sporting events are significant.
“We’re expecting another good crowd with near perfect conditions for Saturday, the forecast is for a partly cloudy day with a high of 24.”
