The Jack Cotis Memorial Lunch is on again this year on 15 August.
For those who have never attended and don't know what it's about, the Jack Cotis Memorial Lunch is a lunch, in town, for all Randwick supporters on the Friday before Grand Final day. It has been going now at least 35 years that I know of and probably longer. You don't have to be a prop or ex-prop to attend, everyone is welcome. It is a great day to meet up with your old playing mates, other ex-players and supporters for a quiet drink, some fine food and a bit of intellectual discussion.
Randwick 15 Parramatta 5
Randwick did not earn any points for glamour and flair in how they beat Parramatta in their Shute Shield away clash on Saturday.
But they got the points that mattered, beating Parramatta 15-5 in the round-eight fixture at Parramatta's home ground of Merrylands RSL Rugby Park - those that made up their winning scoreline - to leapfrog over the Two Blues into sixth place on the ladder.

The Galloping Greens have snapped a three-game losing streak, grabbing a 15-5 away win over Parramatta in a tightly-contested tussle that sees them rise to fifth on the table.
Instrumental in the two-tries-to-one win was Randwick head coach Wade Kelly's decision to play livewire winger Ethan Ford at flyhalf in place of the injured David Horwitz. It proved a master stroke, as the new pivot yesterday directed his team around the park superbly and provided strength in the middle defence.
