Coaches Mitch Dow and Nic O’Connor have named a very strong 12 man squad for this weekend’s Magners Subbies Sevens Tournament. Come down and support the club at Wills Ground, Earlwood this Saturday 1st March. Our first game against St. Pats kicks off at 9:30am followed by Macquarie Uni at 11:15 and UWSH at 12:45. The finals will commence in the afternoon with the final being played at 4pm. Congrats to those picked and good luck!
Boys it is about to piss down with rain so training will be off tonight.
However, Mickey Palmer has kindly offered to put his card behind the bar at Longueville Bowling Club. So come down and enjoy a few beers on Building Durability from 6pm. Bring a mate and get to know some of the new faces. See you there.
1st March – Subbies 7s tournament. Mitch Dow and Nic O’Connor will be the coaches/selectors. Front rowers are exempt but all other players will be open for selection. It is the first time they have held a 7s tournament and we will be sending our strongest team possible as I think it will be quite competitive.
15th March – Orange 10s. It’s a bloody good weekend, we will go down in a bus on Friday night and come back on Sunday. The competition is usually pretty weak and their is decent prize money so the last few times we went we made enough to pay for our beers on the Saturday night. For transport and accommodation it will be roughly $120. So get some mates together and get involved!
