NSW Waratahs Rugby Union will throw its support behind drought-affected farmers in the Hunter and Mid-North Coast, by offering 150 free tickets to this weekend's game in Sydney against the Jaguares at the new Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta.

Hunter Local Land Services (LLS) is working with the Waratahs to get the tickets to local farming families and rural communities.

Hunter LLS will also run free return buses from Scone, Singleton, Maitland and Taree.

Free food and beverages will also be provided for ticket holders.

Members of the Waratahs squad, as well as the ACT Brumbies, visited Gundy last year to put on a free training session for local juniors.

This event also provided farming families the chance to meet with support agencies such as Hunter Local Land Services, the DPI's Rural Resilience Team and Rural Financial Counsellors to access drought support.

"The Waratahs generously offered the tickets to this weekend's game as an extension of their support to local farming communities, understanding that the drought is continuing to impact our region," communications officer Penny Evans said.
