Randwick will this weekend take on reigning Premiers Sydney University knowing that 80 minutes of rugby will make or break their finals campaign. Currently sitting seventh, a loss for the Galloping Greens could see them overtaken by Warringah and Northern Suburbs and rule them out of this year's finals series. By contrast, a win would guarantee them a place in the top eight.
The match kicks off at 3pm at Coogee Oval and will be streamed online via Club Rugby TV from 7pm.
Cnogratulations to Randwick's Terrence Hepetema named in the NSW Team to play the Pumas in the second game of the two-match Argentina tour. Terrence joins Drew Mitchell in the run-on team while young gun David Horwitz joins former Galloping Green Matt Carraro on the bench.
Player Movements 2013:
WOW! 2013 has seen some players come and go to and from the Wicks; it is always a challenge to keep 80 Grade and 50 Colts players happy, a very tough proposition indeed. 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.
