Very busy week past and coming so let's get right to it.
Big thanks to the huge crowd that came out for the full day of rugby at the club on Saturday.

In exhibition action the Men's B side drew 22-22 with the Mudmen. Beautiful day of rugby and great crowd supporting the teams from berm.
Saturday was also the last day of flag rugby for the year. This was another banner year for the program with over 220 kids taking part.
