2013 President Welcome

A Happy New Year to all,


Just a quick email to let you guys know of what is happening in relation to training, who the coaches are and when things are on coming into the 2013 season.


Our Executive for 2013 is as follows:


President – Jeff Apps

Secretary – Cec Finley

Treasurer – Kerry Smith and Maurice Kerkham


Our committee members are as follows:


Ryan Casey, Neil Middleton, Chris Moloney, Mick Hamau, Peter Gale (aka Jaws), Chris Dandridge, David Twomey and Jake Green


Congratulations to this year’s coaches who were selected late last year:


1st Grade – John Pinson and Nev Linford (aka Bartos)

2nd Grade – Chris Smith (aka Agro) and Ian Hewitt

3rd Grade – Ryan Casey and Mark Hicks

4th Grade – Mick Hamau (aka Moo) and Matt Bell

5th Grade – Jaryn Anderton and Richard Cepar

Colts – Glen Parkin


There was some consultation between the coaches in relation to the training nights which have been changed to Tuesday and Thursday nights commencing at 6.30pm which has all ready begun in earnest. The change is to give the players that extra day of recovery to get over some soreness from the weekend.


The first game of the season will be on the 6th April which is the weekend after Easter. Trial opposition along with dates and locations are still to be confirmed but you should look to keep the following dates free:

                   2nd March

                   9th March

                   16th March

                   23rd March


We have an early bird rate for fees this year which is $195 if paid prior to 1st May, if you are unable to pay your fees by the 1st May then your fees will be $220. For those of you that are eligible for Colts this year your fees will be $195. Your fees cover your insurance, a club shirt, club socks and club shorts.


An idea has been floated for a golf day. If you could let me know if you are interested. It would be a four ball “ambrose” type of day, teams to be picked out of a hat. Prizes for longest drive, closest to pin, and shortest drive (with full swing). A great bonding day for all. There would be refreshments served.


If you have any ideas on what can be done this year or have a potential sponsor in mind please let me or any other committee member know.


Yours In Rugby
