Rugby Season Launch
The 2017 Rugby Season was launched Friday, June 2 at Dockside, Darling Harbour. This was the 20th year of this annual event and with over 250 guests attending the event was hailed a success.
President of the Rugby Association Dominic Brandon lead the proceedings followed on by a special address from former Rugby Captain Tom Serhon (ON 2016), who gave an inspiring and emotional speech to the 2017 squad. Director of Rugby Mr Ben Manion announced the appointment of co-captains for 2017, Angus Duvall (12/FL) and Rory Lynch (12/ME).
Our guest speaker was Benn Robinson who was joined on the panel discussion by Rod Kafer and Owen Finegan and hosted by MC Gordon Bray AM, the ‘voice of Rugby’. An event like this needs colourful speakers and we are very appreciative that these ex-Wallabies donated their time to attend this event.
Thank you to those current parents, Old Boys, sponsors and guests that came along and supported the lunch or gave donations towards the silent auction. A special thanks to the table of Old Boys celebrating their 50 year reunion and for making the effort to gather members from the 1967 1st and 2nd XV to attend the event.
The lunch is a highlight in the Rugby calendar and with the success of the event this year, planning has already started for the 2018 season. Good luck to all the players. Go New!
