CALLING ALL OLD SOLDIERS
Published May 9, 2018
They call Rugby Union the game they play in heaven.
Mateship and camaraderie come first. Winning, whilst always important, comes second. Blood, sweat and tears are spilled on the Rugby battlefields each week and there is no more sacred battlefield that Old Soldiers Memorial at Tryon Road, Lindfield.
Our great club was founded on the back of mateship. A group of returning servicemen from WW1 created a club from nothing as a way to stay together and honour their fallen comrades. The famous sky blue and white hoops were born on that day back in 1920 and has thrived on the back of that passion of friendship and the common and complete understanding that as Rugby players, we are one.
Every now and then we all get the opportunity to give back and prove to anyone who will listen why the game of Rugby, and all that it stands for worldwide, is part of something bigger.
At times in our 99 year history, the club has called upon its community to help carry the load of one of our own.
That time is now.
Raphael ‘Raphy’ Gennaoui, one year old son of Phil Gennaoui (2005-2010, 100 games, 2008 Richardson Cup Premiership Winner – 4th Grade)needs our help. This tiny little fighter has been in more medical rucks and malls in his early days than any of us could fathom. He has many more scraps he will enter into in the next few years and we, as a club and as a community, have the honour of being able to play a small part and making that fight a little more even.
A charity golf day has been organised forThursday 24th May 2018 at Manly Golf Club and we ask that you all take the time to read the attached flyer for more details on what little Raphy has been through to date and commit to helping us make a difference.
