It’s that time of year again, Grand Final weekend, and this year the Old Solider is competing to take home 2 pieces of silverware!

2015 Grand Final series features Lindfield Rugby Club battling it out for the Stockdale Cup and Robertson Cup – in 2nd Grade and Colts respectively. 2nd Grade take on old foes Forest, in what is expected to be a very physical encounter, while Colts again meet UNSW in what is slated as being a chance of redemption for UNSW, after last year’s final capitulation to the Old Soldier!

Kick-off times and other details are below. Let’s get behind the boys on this special day and launch our Division 1 campaign with winning to shields for 2015!

Back2Lindfield Day this Saturday

Published May 21, 2015


Every man and woman that has ever supported the LRU has a certain sense of pride every time they see the Sky Blue & White.

Memories that last a lifetime. It may be on the field, it may be a beer after, a bus ride, a birthday, a poker night, a kangaroo court, a kick on, a kick off.. It may be holding up a trophy or loosing by 50. But these memories will be with us until the end of our time.

This weekend, Tryon Road will spring to life and open its gates to another instalment of Back2LindfieldDay.

Games start at 10:30am with a few older names having a trundle in fourth grade and the beers will be cold throughout the day. There’s prizes, raffles, Ghostbusters and Snoop Dogs.
The First XV will kick off at 3:15pm.

Shuttle buses will transport everyone to The Greengate Hotel after speeches and the celebration will continue. If you have the time and you haven’t forgotten these memories… We’ll see you on Saturday; rain, hail or shine.

Old Soldier.
