Robert Handley 500th Game
Rugby under lights returns to Lapstone Oval Saturday night 2nd June 2012 when Blue Mountains host Blacktown
The day will see a magnificent milestone achieved by one clubs most respected footballers in Rob “Pumpa” Handley,who at around 3pm will don the fourth grade number 15 jumper and run out onto the hallowed turf to play his 500th game of Rugby for Blue Mountains.
No matter what sport you play,to reach this kind of level in any career is not only very rare,but it is one that truly deserves massive regonition.
Rob has played for over three decades and the goal kicking try scorering utility back has had plenty of highs and lows in his career,and while he has picked up around half a dozen premierships along the way,the mild mannered club man still rates the friends he has made,and the chance to play with such a great club has given him the inspiration to go on year after year.
No doubt after Saturdays match he will be relaxing with an ice cold refreshment and planning tactics for game number 501.
