When most people refer to the influence of Wallabies legend Mark Ella on rugby union, they recall his on-field wizardry and brilliance with the ball in hand.
Waratahs coach Michael Cheika did on Thursday at a Randwick Rugby Club fund-raising lunch that feted Australian rugby's four "Invincibles". Ella, who played 25 Tests from 1980-1984 before retiring at the of age 25, is one; along with Col Windon, Ken Catchpole and David Campese – all of whom played for the Galloping Greens.
"The best learning that I ever got was being around the players I got to play with, the coaches that I got to be coached by," said Cheika, who also played for Randwick, notching up more than 300 games between 1985 and 1999.
Randwick Rugby Club is pleased to announce Travis Partridge as the new Director of Colts and Rugby Administrator for the 2015 season.

THERE was plenty made about the 101-0 result in Sydney GPS rugby recently, but here's proof that such hammerings don't lead to destruction and demise.
Randwick's first-grade Colts team was defeated by the exact same score, 101-0, by Sydney University in last year's major semi-final.
Then last weekend, the Randwick Colts defeated Uni 23-17 in this year's grand final.
It is the first time since 2006 that Uni has not won the first-grade Colts premiership, and a great reminder to all in rugby that sometimes humiliation breeds courage and resilience, not mental fragility.
