This year, for the first time, the Randwick Warriors have established a dedicated Rugby 7s program.
Over the last couple of weeks, Randwick Warriors sent teams from the 13s, 14s and 15s to compete in the Alex Noble Rugby 7s days. The event was put on over 2 Sundays in a row, February 24th and March 3rd.
The days were purely a fund raiser for Alex and his family. Tt was great to see so many clubs (as well as Randwick) help a young Rugby Player out. Our boys competed very well on the field and conducted themselves very nicely off the field with the 13s boys winning 50% of their games; 14s won 4 out of 6 games and the 15s equal first with 4 wins out of 5. Overall some good results across the board which will put us in good stead for later in the year when the State Cup comes around in Rugby 7s as part of our dedicated 7s programme at the Warriors
MOST IMPORTANTLY THE EVENT RAISED $27K FOR THE FAMILY WHICH WAS GIVEN TO THEM LAST SUNDAY.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kurt Vilo, Tasman Tanner and Vili for coaching the boys and more importantly Paul Whitehouse and Mary-Anne Tanner for putting the teams together and managing the boys these past few weeks.
Please see below a little story on Alex & you can keep updated with his situation via facebook.
Yours in Rugby 7s.
Director of Rugby 7s
On Sunday 21st of October 2018, 16 year old Alex Noble was doing what he loved best, playing rugby. As a rising sports star he was training with the U17 NSW Rugby Sevens youth selection squad. Tragically he was badly injured on the field, breaking his neck and damaging his spinal cord. Alex may never walk again, but we all hope and pray he will regain the use of his arms, hands and fingers. The WRC have put together the Alex Noble Gala Day in the Spirit of Rugby and through your participation in the game that he loves, raise funds for his ongoing rehabilitation program.
