Randwick 1st Grade Coach Hadley Jackson previews Round 10.
We welcome Sydney University to Coogee Oval for the annual Poidevin Farr-Jones Cup fixture to be played between the 1st grade sides this afternoon. It is also a huge day for the Randwick Club, celebrating UNSW and Nura Gili Day. As a Club, we have a very proud Indigenous history, and today our 1st grade Centre Dylan Pietsch will carry on that tradition when he runs out at 3.10pm. This tradition will carry on into the future and we thank all of our Indigenous players, family, friends and supporters for being part of this great Club. Nura Gili, UNSW and Randwick have formed a very strong partnership, one that continues to grow each year. We thank them for their support.
The Colts matches held at Sydney University on Friday night, and the Grade matches today at Coogee, will be fought out between two very strong clubs enjoying a rivalry that always brings out the best in both sides, and this weekend will be no different.
Our 1st grade side are coming off a bonus point victory over Western Sydney, where we continued the form displayed before the Bye Round. The boys are focused and excited, ready to continue the improvement we have shown week on week.
Please don't forget to lock in Friday, June 14th into your diary. The Annual Randwick Rugby Lunch will be held at Dockside, Darling Harbour and promises to be another fantastic afternoon. Tickets are available through the website.
Enjoy the afternoon of grass roots Rugby and, after the game, please join both sides at the Coogee Beach Club for post-match presentations.
