Albury to host City Country clash
11:53 AEST Thu Jan 20 2011

Rugby league will continue its march into AFL-mad Victoria by hosting this year's City vs Country Origin clash in Albury.

Albury, situated on the border between NSW and Victoria, will host the clash for the first time in May.

The match is traditionally played in a regional setting as an unofficial trial match for the NSW Origin team.

Country Rugby League chief executive officer Terry Quinn said the decision to pick Albury was wise.

"Strategically it is an ideal venue to host this annual fixture in an area with AFL predominance," Quinn said.

"We are looking forward to working with the local teams in Albury and surrounds to ensure this game benefits rugby league in the area, both financially and through registration numbers, for years to come."
