Press Release | 12th August 2016

Players, Supporters, Sponsors and Members of the Lindfield Rugby Community,

Further to the press release issued on 9 August 2016, I am pleased to announce the following past and present club members have been formerly appointed to the Appeals Sub-Committee;

Tristan Warner (Former President 2007-2009)
Tim Curtin (Former Club Captain 2006-2010)
Paul Reimer (Former Colts / 1st Grade Coach 2002-2004)
Leon d’Apice (Former Club President 1990-1995, Secretary 1983-1989 and Life Member)
John “Junior” McElroy (Former President 2005-2006 and Life Member)
Karl Nixon (Former Club Captain 1988, Treasurer 1989-1992)

Lindfield Senior Rugby Club is extremely fortunate to have a wealth of experience navigating us through the events at hand. I would also like to thank the numerous other people that have provided assistance over the past week.

With regard to an appeal, I can confirm that, in conjunction with the Club’s legal advisors, a formal appeal of the decision issued by the NSWSRU Integrity Committee on 5 August 2016 was lodged yesterday, 11 August 2016. We now await the response of the Board of the NSW Suburban Rugby Union and will provide further updates as information comes to hand.

It is important that as a community we all come together for each other to communicate and take care of our fellow members. This Club is built on comradery, mateship and love for the game of Rugby Union. Whilst these latest events have tried and tested each of you in different ways over the past week, the Appeals Sub-Committee wants to assure you that everything is being done to ensure that the future of the Club, and the game of Rugby Union itself, is advanced and promoted in the years to come.

Thank you all again for your on-going support.

Yours in rugby,

Tristan Warner
Appeals Sub Committee Chairman
Former President (2007-2009)
