Putting in the hard yards for Melanoma Research

Published July 29, 2014

Lindfield Rugby Club and the Melanoma Institute of Australia are this year joining forces to raise money for the fight against Melanoma – one of Australia’s fastest growing diseases and one that has touched one of our own.

In 2011, Lindfield colts assistant coach Andrew Morbey lost his dad David to melanoma, only 8 months after he was diagnosed. He left behind a wife and four children.

In 2012, he raised $10,000 with his mum for the institute and continues his work to this day. This year, Andrew is using the City2Surf an event that his Dad used to run, as a way to raise another $10,000 to help fight the disease and a means to remember his father.

“Dad was always encouraging us to play sport and he used to run in the City2Surf, but I never got a chance to run with him” remembers Andrew.

Lindfield Rugby is lending it’s support to Andrew’s cause, and is asking our players and supporters to get involved by either running with Andrew and the LRU in the race or by helping us reach our goal of $10,000 for the Melanoma Institute. For all runners, you also receive a limited edition LRU Old Soldiers singlet.

To get involved in the LRU run on August 10, please contact Andrew on andrewmorbey@hotmail.com by Friday 1st August and to donate to the Lindfield Old Soldiers run visit https://city2surf2014.everydayhero.com/au/lindfield-rugby-club

Toby Crisp Fundraiser

Published May 14, 2014

As many would be aware, Balmain player Toby Crisp, collapsed on the field during the club’s 4th grade match v Mosman.

After undergoing surgery and being in a coma, Toby passed away last Fri, 9 May. The Union’s condolences are with Toby’s family and teammates during this terribly sad time.

Balmain RFC is holding a fundraiser for Toby’s family on Sun 18 May. See attached for further details.

The Crisp family and Balmain Rugby will distribute funds raised in Toby’s honour towards:
* CPR training for local sporting clubs
* Donation to the ICU unit at Royal Prince Alfred.
* Contribution towards defibrillators for Subbies Rugby Clubs
* Assisting with costs for Toby’s wake

Please take a moment to consider your contribution, and please publicise the fundraiser to your teammates and friends.

Balmain RFC thanks those from the Subbies ‘family’ and the wider rugby community who have sent their best wishes and support. In particular, their heartfelt thanks goes to Mosman RFC who helped so magnificently when Toby was being attended to on the field.

Lindfield Rugby Club Ladies Day 2014

Published April 27, 2014

268717_340724072676093_971301386_n

The BIGGEST day in the Lindfield Rugby Club calendar year is back and it’s going to be EPIC!!!

It’s no secret that Lindfield Rugby Club put on the best Ladies Day in Subbies’ Rugby, this year we have even had opposition clubs submit interest in playing us on our day of days, and this year that lucky unlucky club is St. Ives!

So what is it that makes Lindfield Rugby Club’s Ladies Day so amazing???

Is it the never ending flow of champagne served up to the ladies by our very own topless waiters?

Is it the only girls vs girls boat race in the world?

Is it the fact that ladies’ are entertained by the finest champagne rugby on the north shore?

Or is it the EPIC after party which takes place in the Club House every year as the sun sets on Soldiers Memorial Oval?

$30 buy-in for the Ladies’ will entitle them to unlimited champagne, finger foods and canapes, topless waiters and other goodies, so make sure you come along and get involved. We promise you’ll have a memorable day/night and the headache to prove it on the Sunday morning.

To the Lindfield fellas, once again whoever brings the most ladies along wins an esky full of the beer of their choice…

Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
