SENIOR RUGBY. The Veterans competition continues this weekend with a get together at Easts on Saturday 20th April from 3pm. Should be a few guys from various clubs looking for a run.

Unfortunitly last Friday night was a bit of a non event, all players were ready to run out to play around 8:30pm and we lost power. Total darkness. It took out the complete rugby field lights plus the clubroom. Thankfully all the food that we normally supply was just cooked but we had dozens of players with nothing to do but talk rugby, drink & eat. Some may say, maybe not much different to a normal Friday night. So we chatted and again solved so many world affairs. We are really getting good at that.

Energex were on the scene till 10:45pm and fixed the blown fuse on the street pole. Back to normal but at that time of night it was just a few left so playing a game of rugby wasn't on the agenda.

The senior competition has the weekend off and will continue 3pm Saturday 27th April at HOME.

There has been some big changes in the senior club this week.

We have appointed a new senior team coach and excitingly welcome back Istaik to take charge of the team.

Senior team training has been moved back to 6:30pm Thursday night.

We look to build and with this the senior team is looking for more players. At $30 per week a great deal to play suburban rugby.

All registrations are carried out online from our web site. Quick and easy. Registration assistance from


The draw for the upcoming games have been posted to the website.

Sunday 28th April

U12 -10:20am Redcliffe (Home) v Wynnum. Ray Frawley Fields Silcock St Clontarf.

U15 -11:20am Redcliffe (Home) v Riverside. Ray Frawley Fields Silcock St Clontarf.

As these are the first home games for the year can we request canteen assistance as follows.

U12 9:30am-10:20am

U15 10:20am-11:20am

This assistance helps the club greatly.

You will also find other assistance can be given with assisting the team (ask your own coach), field set up and generally getting the grounds ready on game day. Plus that ever important end of day putting away gear after the last game. This can be discussed with the Duty Official on the day.

We wish all our players and teams the best of luck in these games.

The Saturday draw is not out yet and as we have previously listed as soon as we know the draw we will release onto the website, newsletter and on FB.

Remember if needing to sign on for our rugby season email for info.

JUNIOR CLUB WELCOME TO THE CLUB. A heads up that we soon will release the date of the "Welcome to the club" get together for 2019. This presently will be a Saturday in May.

Just waiting on the committee to confirm. Presently the idea is to kick off procedings from 3pm. This should include fun, games, raffles, music, food (that will be offered at a reduced fee if ordered & paid for pre the day) as this will greatly assist our catering. Stay tuned and watch out for more info.

SENIOR CLUB RAFFLES. Sunday arvos from about 3pm come and see Bear and his helpers (along with some live bands) selling raffles in the club meat trays at the Bramble Bay Bowls Club (end of Victoria Ave, Woody Point). Mal and the veterans boys also do the Wednesday arvo/night raffles at The Belvedere Hotel so if needing a mid week chat, pop down to The Bel.
