2018 LRU Committee

Published November 22, 2017

Good morning all,

I am writing this message to all current members, players, sponsors and supporters of Lindfield Rugby Union.

After a short break post Season 2017 we are all back at work preparing for 2018.

A new committee has been formed and we have held an initial meeting.

We welcome a new face in Josh Rickard-Ford (Vice President) and familiar faces Ben Dibden and Toni Francis back onto the committee.

The 2018 LRU Committee is as follows:
1. President: Raef Johnson
2. Vice President: Josh Rickard-Ford
3. Treasurer: Ben Dibden
4. Secretary: Toni Francis

At the same time we have to thank departing Committee members Jared Hills. He will still be prominent around the club, finally playing a few more games.

Finally, can I point out that each and every committee member assumes direct responsibility for a specific area of operation within the club. In a volunteer organisation we need volunteers to assist in all facets of the club running smoothly. There are holes in the subcommittee that need to be filled at this point, so please jump on board.

Please note this extends to coaching staff too.

It will be greatly appreciated if you have any interest, desire or ability to assist the club you could reach out. If you can register your interest (or encourage a family member to register) via email ( it will assist the club greatly.


Raef Johnson
LRU President

We wish to cordially invite all to the annual AGM for 2017.

It is an open forum for all.

LRU Mental Health Week

Published June 1, 2017

This weekend is Mental Health Awareness round where the players of Lindfield Rugby Club will be wearing one of the batyr ‘One Sock One Goal’ socks. Pioneered by our very own Jake Broxom, this day is designed to promote awareness of the stigma surrounding discussions about mental health.

Almost 1 in 5 Australians will suffer from some sort of mental illness each year and is the third leading cause of disability. This day is aimed at giving a voice to such a prevalent issue in modern society which still goes largely unnoticed.

batyr are an organisation that focuses on preventative education in the area of youth mental health. They provide programs that train young people to speak about their personal experience with mental ill health and start a conversation in their community. You can read more at

All games against Hunters Hill will be at Tryon Oval, with 4th Grade kicking things off at 10:45am. There will be a BBQ all day along with a raffle and plenty of beers, wine, champagne and drinks for the kids.

It should be a cracker of a day so bring the parents, the kids, the siblings or anyone who would enjoy a nice relaxing Saturday arvo at the footy.

The new Lindfield budgy smugglers have just arrived so you never know, you might get a glimpse of the glory!
