Ricky Walford shield to light up Walgett

The Ricky Walford shield will again take over Walgett for the 22nd year running, and this year is set to be the biggest carnival in its proud history.

Over 150 of north-west NSW’s best open-aged primary school rugby league players will take to the fields in a one-day festival of football and celebration of sport and community

Named in honour of former NRL & NSW Origin player, Ricky Walford, who now works as the Indigenous Programs Manager at NSWRL, there is no denying how proud he is to see the competition still growing.
