The season is fast coming to an end. I thought that I would share some interesting facts with you. Over the last three years the RDRUFC has embraced social media on all fronts. The Facebook page has been excellent forum for players; the Randwick Rugby app through Wheelie is progressing slowly on our part while the success story has been the webpage. At present we are averaging 30,000 dedicated visits per month and 100,000 hits per annum, including a high of 35,000 visits in May. The daily updating of the web page with the latest Randwick Rugby stories combined with the weekly newsletter has ensured our supporters are following us and more importantly, we are reaching our supporters. The numbers mentioned are outstanding.
Twitter has been another medium of social media that we have embraced communciating daily and weekly updates, live scores of all teams on match day including informative comment and as a communication source. At present, compared to other Shute Clubs we have 714 followers. Sydney University and Manly are the closest on 568. I encourage you all to join Twitter now. All you have to do is sign up on www.twitter.com........ for the latest Randwick Rugby news - you need an email address, a password and can choose your own 'user name'. Let's go for a thousand followers by Saturday's Colts Grand Final - sign up and follow 'GallopingGreens' on Twitter.
