1sts lost 23-32
Last weekend was one of our strongest performances of the season. Manly is a team we had not beaten in 6 years and despite only 14 men for the last 10 minutes we were still in a position to win the game.
That performance against Manly has given our boys a lot of confidence and another good preparation has put us in a good position to challenge Warringah on Saturday at Maloneys Grocers Day.
The early part of the season has seen our grade teams achieve some mixed results. The return of several key players will see some stronger Randwick teams concentrating on the improvement required from our last performance against Manly.
Last year’s premiers Warringah gave us our biggest defeat of the season in first grade beating us 46 to 19 at Rat Park in April. There has been a lot of improvement in our rugby since then, there is a lot to play for, and we are looking forward to hosting Darren Coleman and the Warringah teams at Coogee Oval.
With the Rats placed fourth in 1st grade, third in 2nd grade and first in 3rd and 4th grade it will be a full day of fiercely contested battles.
It is the last weekend of the school holidays; the weather forecast is for a great winter’s day in the sun and a great opportunity to get the whole family down to Coogee Oval for a wonderful afternoon of rugby.
The coming month is an important period of rugby for our 2018 season as many of our teams fight for top six finishes I encourage you to get behind the Club and support our teams.
Up the Wicks!

Manly Vs Randwick
The boys headed to Manly Oval intent on making amends for their Round 8 defeat. While Manly were first to score, it wasn’t long before halfback Mitchell Short returned the favour. Winger Christian Yassmin then scored two tries, which had Randwick lead 21 points to 10 for most of the half. A brief lapse in concentration just before the break saw Randwick trailing by three. At half time, Manly 24 led Randwick 21.
