You will have noticed that we are in the process of rebuilding the website which will be operational very shortly. The website will contain all the information you need to update you on where we are playing, what social functions are planned for the year, relevant contact details for your coaches and committee and many other features.

Pre-Season training has been underway for a month now and it has been pleasing to see how many blokes have been coming down. As always we have welcomed many new faces to the club, as well as welcoming back old faces for another year.

Our first trial match is on Saturday 17 March. We have been busily preparing the season behind the season and we are looking forward to a big one in 2007! Please make an effort to get down to training this Thursday and beyond to cement your place in a team. We will be putting on a BBQ after training for everyone this Thursday before heading over to the Kauri.

Our trial schedule for this season is as follows…

  1. 17 March vs Barker and UNSW: The David Phillips Sports Fields, Daceyville
  2. 24 March vs Briars and Petersham: Rothwell Park, Concord
  3. 31 March vs Beecroft and Lindfield: The Kingdome, Parramatta
  4. 6 April: Easter
  5. 14 April: Round 1

I look forward to see you down at training on Thursday. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the committee and coaches – particularly our fitness conditioners Steve Denning and Col Strachan – for all their efforts in the off and pre-seasons.
