Latest News stories from Randwick Rugby Club
This is a story about engagement, or perhaps the lack of it, between the elite and the great unwashed of Australian rugby.
A good place to start, is the largely forgotten Arbib Report of 2012, which made a salient point:
"An organisation that ignores its shareholders or takes them for granted, except on the handful of occasions where it has no choice but to seek their endorsement, should not be surprised when it meets a cold reception."
"While the Wallabies might be the financial engine of Australian Rugby, the community Game is its beating heart."
The Galloping Greens wish Randwick Petersham Cricket Club all the best for when they take on Cricket Ireland at Coogee Oval on 6 February in the New Balance Community Cricket Week International Cup.

THE Wallabies are Australia's pre-eminent rugby team.
From Spiro Zavos..."You would like to think that someone more creative, someone like Mark Ella or David Campese, could be drafted as well to provide some insights into how the famous Randwick Galloping Greens game – created by the great theoriser Cyril Towers in large part – can once again be brought into the Wallabies system."....
During the week I had a fascinating chat with Wendy Buswell about her experiences of adopting her expertise in performance training practice and theory for actors across to the training of rugby players.
I came away from the interview with the strong belief that her ideas could help rugby players, at all levels, but especially at the professional level, to be able to 'play what is in front of them' in an effective manner while maintaining the structures and patterns of play drummed into them during the endless training sessions they have to endure.
Randwick Rugby Club stepped up its preseason preparations on the weekend as players past and present descended upon Latham Park for the annual Club Legends Development Day.
Without a doubt one of the most famous and recognised Football Clubs in Australia, the Galloping Greens have built a dynasty based on running rugby and an ability to score from all corners of the park.
To date, Randwick Rugby Club has won 32 First Grade Premierships and 28 Club Championships in addition to its 76 lower Grade Premierships and 24 Colts Premierships. In a bid to add to these numbers, the Wicks called upon decorated Legends to share their Rugby experiences and pass on some invaluable knowledge to the current crop of players who will pull on the myrtle green jersey in 2015.
