Ladies day at the Rats home game against Goondiwindi
RUGBY UNION: It will be Ladies Day at the Warwick Rugby Union Club tomorrow as part of a home game against traditional rivals Goondiwindi.
Club vice-president Bev Hall is co-ordinating ladies day and is hoping 40 to 50 ladies head to Risdon Oval for a party within a party.
Ladies Day starts at 12.30pm in a marquee loaned by the Warwick Turf Club which is being set up a Risdon Oval.
“Ladies are invited to enjoy champagne and food prepared by the Killarney QCWA,” Hall said.
“I would love to have ladies at Risdon Oval who have never been to rugby union before.
“While ladies day is not about encouraging ladies to play the game, the club is looking at the possibility of forming a ladies team in 2017.”
Admission to the footy is free but there is $10 entry to the marquee for ladies day.
The major prize in the raffle will be a dinner for two at the Rusty Rose Bar and Grill.
The juniors tomorrow will train at The Scots PGC College during the school open day and then be at Risdon Oval to lead the Warwick players on to the field for the B-grade game against Goondiwindi at 3pm.
Six matches of girls sevens will be played from 1pm between Scots PGC, Downlands and Toowoomba Anglican College and Preparatory School at Risdon Oval.
At 2.20pm, a Warwick golden oldies game will be played by rugby fanatics 35 years and older. One of the oldest players in the game will be 73-year-old Rob Hall who will also referee some of the girls games.
Warwick and Goondiwindi are both in the top-four in the B-grade competition and will meet at 3pm.
The Water Rats had the bye last weekend which enabled five players with the flu or injuries to recover in time for the game against Goondiwindi. The club has a barbecue after training each Thursday.
“The majority of the First XV at Scots PGC train with the Water Rats which works well with both teams,” Hall said.
D.J. Cahill is coach of the Water Rats and the Scots PGC First XV.
