The development of the Colts program and ensuring Randwick players have an opportunity to come to the Club and engage in study at tertiary or trade level is one of Partridge’s proudest achievements.

“Developing our colts program and ensuring our players have access to study at UNSW or any other university or TAFE course was a priority and will continue to be the focus of our Colts program. Giving our players the opportunity to play within an elite colts system and develop into the best version of themselves is a massive achievement”.

“Travis joined us to head up our Colts program. A big job, given that we were focused on a rebuild for the Club ‘from the bottom up’.

“We are now the top Colts program in Sydney, possibly Australian, rugby”.

Partridge will be taking an opportunity outside of rugby with the priority being his young family stating.

“The decision to step away from Randwick was extremely difficult however my priority is my family and this decision was solely made with them in mind.

“I can’t thank the Randwick Board enough for their support, the players, staff and volunteers for the work they put in and the dedication they have to this Club.”
