The merry-go-round that is 'club rugby' is an interesting beast and with 8 teams to field every week it sure is a challenge and a constantly changing environment.

The funeral will be held this Friday August 2nd at 9.30am, at Hanson & Cole, Kembla Grange – off the highway at Berkeley, south of Wollongong.

2013 just keeps getting better for 18 year old flyhalf David Horwitz. The day after finishing his HSC in 2012 he received a call from Waratahs Coach Michael Cheika asking him to join them for pre-season. Returning to club rugby he has starred at 10 in first grade for Randwick resuming his NSW schools partnership with Harry Boileau. The latest chapter sees Dave selected to represent the Tahs in their upcoming tour to Argentina. We wish both Dave and Terrance Hepetema all the best for their games against the Pumas and look forward to their return in Round 18. Galloping Greens Sekope Kepu and Drew Mitchell are also in the squad to travel to Argentina (Dave and Terrence will miss round 16 and 17).

Heritage Day is on at Coogee Oval this weekend and all former Randwick Rugby players and supporters are especially welcome at Coogee Oval when the Wicks take on Warringah.
The First Grade team will be honouring Randwick's National and State representatives, wearing jerseys featuring the names of these Galloping Green players. Watch out for the opportunity to own one of these jerseys. Jerseys will be auctioned at the Randwick Golf Day on 19 July and at the game on Saturday.
