Welcome to the University of WA Rugby Club
GET ON BOARD SEASON 2013
‘uni rugby: moving forward’
UWA Rugby Club is renowned throughout Perth for its expansive style of rugby and social life. This year the Club offers nine men’s XVs: Premier and Reserve Grade, two 3rd Grade teams, two 4th Grade teams, two U/20 Colts and an U/18 Colts team.
DEFEAT SNATCHED FROM JAWS OF VICTORY - AGAIN
1st Grade once agin showed their strength in scoring points but a greater commitment to their defence is needed. For the third week in a row we lost in the last few minutes, 34-43. To put 34 points on Neddies is to be commended. A similar story occured in 2nd Grade going down 29-35 and again a try on the bell hurt us. 3rds scored first but then not again when soundly beaten 7-57. 4th Grade knew that any Nedlands clash would be tough, as it proved when we won 10-3 and kept our recent winning record over them intact. U20 Colts had a much easier assignment winning 83-5 in the highest ever score against Nedlands Colts. The U18 Colts met a strong Joondalup and went down in another close encounter 27-31.
The Championships Division teams met front runners Mandurah and saw 1sts lose 0-99, 2nds lost 10-28 and 3rds went down 7-15.

Friends of UWA Rugby news:
Friends Study Bursary applications now closed.
The committee will anounce the worthy recipients later in the season.
Well, here it is: The “Michelle” t-shirt. Despite appearances, the colour is NOT brown but ‘bark’...
Big thanks to Mickey Colliss for yet another fantastic design job and also to Cogs for the masterstroke of coming up with a Hippo logo to brand everything the Hippos do from now on. Nice.
If you want yours before they’re gone, let Damian know as soon as you can.
And to avoid disappointment, send your chest circumcumference because the sizing is a bit odd. $25.
Get on board. We need this.
Sign on for 2013!
