Get ready to run with the Galloping Greens
Bring on 2013!
Keen to play with Randwick Rugby in 2013? Ready for pre-season? Last Friday night was an early opportunity for interested players to meet and chat with new Club Coach Wade Kelly. A run through of Wade's pre-season timeline and plans for the '13 season were presented.
IN an exciting development UNSW Australia have come aboard as the major sponsor of our Randwick Sevens team who will be playing in this year's prestigious Singapore Sevens.
UNSW Australia has a vibrant International student population with a high representation from Singapore. The UNSW Australia Randwick Sevens team will be coached by Marcus Blackburn who is highly respected in Singapore as the successful coach of the National team. In Singapore Marcus and the UNSW Australia Randwick team will run Sevens clinics at local schools.
Also contributing to the Randwick Rugby Sevens program are valued sponsors Peter's of Kensington, Divcall and Taylor Woodings.
Well done Randwick 7s team - great effort at the Central Coast Sevens Tournament
Central Coast 7s Report:
THE level of competition was raised last weekend, as Randwick headed to the Central Coast 7s. The first game of the day was against Westfield Barbarians, which included 3 Fijian internationals. It was a close encounter with Randwick capturing the lead shortly after the break, but three quick-fire tries at the end left them ruing a 17-32 loss. Westfield Barbarians went on to win the Cup.
Randwick then faced the Sydney Uni clad No. 8 All Stars, and ran out comfortable winners by 25-7. The last pool game was against the Parramatta based team 'KWAussie'. A solid performance secured the 19-10 victory, but the game took an injury toll on the squad.
The Semi Final of the Plate was against Samurai, the renowned invitational team, that had recruited well with 4 NZ national 7s players. After a promising first half, there were no excuses for a lacklustre second half which saw a ragged defence concede 30 unanswered points. Samurai went in to win the Plate comfortably.
Randwick move on to Singapore this weekend, determined to fix some defensive frailties, and prove the level of ambition of their new and improving sevens program.
Best wishes to the Randwick Rugby Singapore Sevens Squad
