Latest News stories from Randwick Rugby Club
RANDWICK will become the first Australian team to trial a new concussion patch that could revolutionise the fight against head injuries in sport.
All first grade Randwick players will be wearing the small patch behind their ears when they play the opening round of the Shute Shield competition this weekend and will continue to use it in every game.
Randwick Rugby Board Members, past Presidents and the 2015 executive coaching panel met at the Bell Potter Boardroom today to welcome and thank major sponsors and friends of the illustrious Rugby Club. The valuable and much appreciated support of Peter's of Kensington, John Newell Mazda, the University of NSW and the Randwick Rugby Foundation enables the Club to carry out its core business of putting players on the field at Coogee Oval.
The Intrust Super Shute Shield, Sydney's premier rugby union competition, will be seen live on the Seven Network this year, with this Saturday's season opener between Eastern Suburbs and Gordon kicking off an exciting new era for televised club rugby.
The Intrust Super Shute Shield's Saturday match-of-the-day will be seen live throughout the season on 7TWO and regionally through the Prime Network and 7 Digital.
The breakthrough to continue television coverage was spearheaded by Club Rugby TV directors, leading stockbroker John Murray and Nick Fordham, CEO of the talent management agency, The Fordham Company.

The Waratahs may be learning that it is tougher to defend a title than to win one but playmaker Kurtley Beale says the reigning champions have lost none of the hunger that propelled them to a maiden Super Rugby title last year.
NSW face arguably their toughest test of the season to date when they host the in-form Brumbies at Allianz Stadium on Sunday and Beale believes they will lose if they cannot produce a ferocious performance across 80 minutes.
The Hong Kong RFU today named David Campese as the 5th member of the esteemed #HongKongSevens.
#Campo joins Johnny Zhang Zhiqiang (China) Ben Gollings (England) Christian Cullen (NZ) and Eric Rush (NZ). The final 2 members will be named in the days leading up to the 2015 CathayPacific HSBC Hong Kong Sevens. View presentation video >>>...
