Vale Drew Hall

It is with a sad heart we report the passing of Drew Hall (OR 87) on Wednesday 19th August 20156. Drew was fighting cancer for the past few years.Drew Hall

Drew was a classy 1st Grade 5/8th who represented Old Iggies in the early 1990’s. He was known for his soft hands, great passing game and deceptive footwork.

He leaves behind four great kids, Tom, Gidget, Tricksy and Evey who, along with us all, are devastated. He was truly one of life’s gentlemen.

A celebration of his life will be held
Monday 24th August – 3pm onwards

Round 1 VS Mosman

Well the 2015 season is officially underway and round 1 took us to our sacred home patch of Ryde International Oval. It was a beautiful morning with the sun shining and the pitch looking the best it ever has. It was a great start to the day to see 5th Grade (otherwise known as elevensies) warming up – or what they call warming up by throwing a bit of banter around and the odd walk breaking into a trot. But we were all fooled. Mosman, at first glance looked the younger and faster team, but the experience of the elevensies kicked in and they put on a masterclass to notch their first win for the season.

4th grade had a tough day at the office with Mossy getting the early jump with a few quick tries, which forced our boys to play catch up for the rest of the day. 3rd grade had a strong tussle and unfortunately went down in a close one. Colties had another classic running rugby exhibition against (as Palmer refers to them as The Mosman Crumble). Our boys didn’t help their causes by plenty of handling errors along with some injuries to key players which left us a little under strength and ended up on the wrong side of the score line.

2nd grade were ready for what was written as a tight battle, bouncing back from a sloppy display in the trial to show a spirited and hard fought match. As was the same in 1st grade, our boys defended for the majority of the game and were unlucky not to come away with the win. To 1st grade, and we saw what was a great build up for many years and was going to be a fantastic display of rugby coming off the trials with some new faces and retaining many combinations built from last year. As was the same in 2nd grade, we defended for what seemed an eternity with some heavy collisions. Mosman ended up victors 4 tries to 3.

There is a fantastic platform being built for this season, with perhaps not quite enough rugby under our belts for round 1, but looking forward to round 2 this coming weekend against Brothers. Make sure everyone gets down to training this Wednesday night.
