The NRC organisers are yet to pick up on the fact that the best thing about provincial comps is not so much who wins the grand final - but rather who holds the shield. So I thought I'd start the thread so we can keep track of who currently holds the shield and what games are classified as potential future challenges. The less rules the better so: Rule 1: The winner of the inaugural game ever is the first shield holder. Rule 2: In order to win the shield you must beat the current holders at their home ground, or in an away game, if the current holders agree to contest it at an away game. Rule 3: Finals Games don't count but pre season games do. Currently Brisbane City holds the shield and their first defence of it will be this weekend against Melbourne at Ballymore. Suggest possible names/rules/trophy designs below.
