Vets Day this Saturday is going to be HUGE!!
With a team of previously retired players coming out to take on Hawkesbury Valley Rugby Club with David Taylor in his 400th we've had to check the record books.
It's a good thing we did
As well as DT's 400th, Paul Gibbs and Rodger Shanahan will get their 150th, whilst Simon Kearney and Clark Smith will both run out for their 100th game for the club.
Talk about a day of milestones.
We'll have our famous warm pork rolls straight off the spit and the proceeds from the sale of each will go to Beyond Blue
Get there early and join in the fun of Vets Day 2019 ... See MoreSee Less

That’s a big number. Well done Brothers warrior🍻
Congratulations Pat on reaching this significant milestone of 250 games for Brothers Rugby Club Sydney. Well done, you Brothers/CBOB Warrior!
...The rumour mill has it he will be playing with his woman tucked under his arm since becoming 110% whipped of late. On a serious note, well done Gorts for a great contribution to the club.
Congratulations Patrick David

Try for the ages
Roseville’s Brothers Rugby Club is one of the more community-minded of the subbies organisations, and among its players are several blokes who work in the field of caring for young people with disabilities.
A couple of weeks ago three of them – Michael, Mick and Josh – approached the club president wanting to sort something out for one of their charges. Nick, a young fellow with cerebral palsy, lives at home with his family and spends the day at the facility where the players work. Nick, they said, is a sports fanatic, loves his rugby, and would get a great thrill if he could be involved in a game in some way, perhaps in the coming one against the likeable lads of Hawkesbury Ag College? Done.
The plan was for Nick to “run on” through a tunnel of players in his wheelchair, in a Brothers jersey. Hawkesbury Ag were asked if they would be involved and, without hesitation, agreed. But it didn’t work out as planned. For after he was wheeled on before the cheering crowd at Roseville Chase Oval on this beautiful autumnal Saturday, he didn’t want to leave the field and neither did the players from either side.
So instead, a quick burst of mock game took place with the Brothers boys getting behind Nick, as he tucks the ball under his arm, sets his wheelchair for off-road, and they barged him around before the scattering Hawkesbury Ag lads.
And look at him go!
He swivels left, he swivels right, he runs over one player, and wings another. He’s through the gap! Hawkesbury Ag close in cover defence, but the Brothers boys beat them back, as the try line beckons. He’s over!
Try! Try! TRY!!!!!
A try for your life! One for the ages. As the referee, with full ceremony, blows his whistle and puts his arm in the air to make it official, more than a few spectators are in tears – including Nick’s family.
When the president of Brothers speaks to one of the Hawkesbury Ag players after the game to thank them for their involvement in what was a special moment for Nick – and everybody at the ground – his comment says it all: “Isn’t that what rugby is all about?”
Yup. Precisely what it is about.
Gotta love this city.

Results from the weekend.
A hard fought draw for First grade.
2s had a great second half, unfortunately the game had already got away but showed great determination to see it out till the end.
A gutsy performance from Colts who are sure to start putting wins on the board soon.
Unfortunately we had to forfeit 3rd grade due to lack of player availability.
Next weekend sees us away at Newport. ... See MoreSee Less
