A warm welcome to Season 2019 and a very warm welcome to our two U13 teams who are enjoying their first taste of teenage rugby.
Transition from the four U12 Village Clubs to Randwick Warriors U13s requires a big effort and a lot of communication and I’d like thank all those involved, particularly, Mary-Anne Tanner, Kurt Vilo and Bruce Jones. Also, I’d like to show my appreciation to the 4 Village Presidents for their support of the Warriors, which is Randwick Rugby’s teenage club.
Finally, a big shout out to the U16s age group which has signed up 11 new players, enabling the Club to register over 50 players and form two very healthy teams. Totally unprecedented. Congratulations.
On the field last Sunday, we had the good fortune to have all our teams playing at Nagle Park in Round 1. All teams, relishing their time with the Randwick Junior Rugby Academy during summer, played some very competitive rugby and had a positive rugby experience, which is what the Club is all about.
