Melanoma Institute Australia Trial Game

Published February 9, 2016


Last year, Lindfield and Mosman Rugby Club’s played a trial game against one another at Wakehurst, where funds were raised for Melanoma Institute Australia.

This year, we are proud to announce that Lindfield and Mosman 1st Grades will go head-to-head for the Inaugural ‘Melanoma Memorial Shield’. This shield was donated by an Old Soldier in memory of not only his father, but for other rugby players who have lost their life to melanoma. Roseville Rugby Club has been invited to take part and play a round robin with both Lindfield and Mosman 3rd Grade sides. These three clubs have all been effected by this terrible disease and on the 19th March they will remember those lives and celebrate the great game of rugby.

Saturday March 19, 2016 at Rawson Park, Mosman.

More details to come.

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.
