2014 Pre Season

2014 Pre Season

150 150 UNSW RUGBY
It’s a New Year and the UNSW Rugby Club is looking to continue its fine tradition in the NSW Suburban Rugby competition.

The club welcomes all players from surrounding suburbs and across Sydney – you do not need to be a student or graduate to play at UNSWRFC.
All willing to pull on the colours and give their best effort qualify.

For those who have played with us in the past I sincerely hope you all enjoyed the holiday season as much as the Australian cricket team and are all refreshed and ready to go.
If you are like me and have put some sort of fitness component into your New Year’s resolutions then you’ll be happy to hear that pre season starts Saturday the 11th January, with a run from Coogee (more details below).
For those who we have not met before come on down and give us a go…

See below for a preseason timetable – make sure you don’t leave your run too late.
We need everyone fit and ready to go come 5th April when the competition starts.

Pre Season Calendar

11th January – 22nd February
Saturday Morning Coogee Sessions
Title explains most of it – we meet at 9am on Saturday mornings at the steps to the beach, most of us bringing terrible hang overs along for the ride.

We vary routes from week to week but we always enjoy the view.

11th February – 27th March
Tuesday and Thursday Night Pre Season
The hard slog that gets us through the season, the more numbers we get to this the better.

After feedback from the last few years we are doing more skill work and drills and less wrestling this year for all of you who were afraid of Frank.

At David Phillips Field, Daceyville, unless otherwise specified.

1st or 8th March
Laffan Cup – Australian University Teams Competition for top squad and players interested in Australian University Teams selection.

15th March
Trial vs Balmain @ Leichhardt No 2 Oval.

22nd March
Tour to Goulburn to play a local and regional club.

Post match team building planned

29th March
Trial vs Wollongong University in Wollongong.

Regular Season starts 5th April.
