2018

The School holiday training day was held on Thursday 26th April. The day was a great success.

Lead by Shane Christie, the kids not only had fun but learnt some impressive skills. We look forward to seeing these skills demonstrated in their games during the season.

Thanks to Quentin, Shane and the team for putting so much work into the day and their commitment to helping our young rugby players be the best they can be.
