VIDEO: Blowes Clothing Cup round one preview: is there a sniff of an upset in Parkes?

IT starts this weekend: round one of the 2014 Blowes Clothing Cup competition.

Each week Footy HQ Rugby Union will present you with a video previewing the up-coming round of games.

To get you started we've charged the Daily Liberal's Ben Walker and Nick Guthrie with previewing what promises to be an exciting start to the season.

The boys predict a tight local derby to start the round when Dubbo Kangaroos host Narromine Gorillas.

Ben can't see Parkes Boars toppling last year's premiers Orange City Lions in a 2013 grand final replay, but Nick can smell an upset at Northparkes Oval.

Both agree Bathurst Bulldogs should prove too strong for last season's wooden spooners Orange Emus, despite their recent history pointing to a green upset.

Nick believes the Forbes Platypi's strong pre-season form should see them account for Blowes Clothing Cup newcomers Mudgee Wombats.
