Latest News stories from Randwick Rugby Club
NSW Junior Gold would like to thank the Randwick Rugby Club for its assistance with the combined North Harbour and South Harbour trials held at The UNSW David Phillips Sports Field, Daceyville. The first trial was held last weekend, Sunday, 12th October when approximately 200 boys aged between 13 and 16 trialled for a spot in the NSW Junior Gold program for the 2014/2015 season.
Randwick Rugby Club assisted last weekend through its association with the UNSW and their senior coaches providing support in selection of both squads. The Club also provided an avenue for the boys to rehydrate and refuel with the running of a canteen that is also supporting the Randwick Rugby Academy. Matt Evrard from NSW Rugby said "All the players, coaches and parents were very impressed with the high quality sporting facility UNSW has built at the David Phillips Sports Field".
The Randwick Rugby Club will continue assistance this weekend with the final trial for the North Harbour and South Harbour teams. Again this will be run from The David Phillip Sports Field, Daceyville and will be the final chance for these boys to gain selection into either the U15s or U17s team for both locations (Centres). This week sees a split in starting times for the age groups with U15s starting at 8:30am and U17s at 10am.
Without the support of Randwick Rugby Club, NSW Junior Gold would not have been able to run these trials so successfully. For more information on the NSW Junior Gold visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NSWJG or the webpage at http://bit.ly/Zpjdib
