SRFC Old Members Day – Sat 18th May

Posted on

All members, past and present,  are invited to our annual ‘old members day’ reunion to be held on Saturday 18th May from 1pm onwards.

The Premier 2’s will be playing the curtain raiser at 1pm v Taieri. The main game will be the Roy Nieper Memorial Trophy between our Premiers and Taieri.  Both games can be watched from the comfort of the Clubrooms, while enjoying a drink and complimentary nibbles throughout the afternoon. Our Magpie Colts have an away game at 1pm against Alhambra Union at North Ground.

A highlight of of the day  will be the reunion of the 1970’s Southern team that toured Australia. They are claiming it as a 50 year reunion….as Billy Somerville said “we started fundraising in 1969”.  About 15 or 16 of that touring group will attend with a full afternoon of activities organised, including a meal,  and a team photo with the Ranfurly Shield being present in the Club. 

Our Junior rugby teams will play their games at 10am, and will get the opportunity to have photos with the Shield afterwards.

Please pass on this date to fellow club members who don’t read our Website, Facebook, or are on our mailing list. The more who can get along the merrier.
