Clubs join to help Sinclair Byrne

THE Warwick and Killarney polocrosse clubs have combined to organise a benefit auction to help Sinclair Byrne who played with both clubs.

The auction will be on April 10 during the Barastoc Interstate Polocrosse Series and Shell Cup at Morgan Park.

Warwick club president Les Fraser and Killarney president Col Bloomfield are jointly organising the auction.

Mr Fraser said it was hoped to raise $4000 to $5000 during the auction to help the Byrne family.

Sinclair played for Warwick as a junior and together with club mates Matt Gleeson and Mark O’Leary played for Australia in an intermediate series against New Zealand in the Northern Territory.

In more recent years, he played for Killarney.

Cowboys fund still open

FUNDRAISING is continuing in the aftermath of the Sinclair Byrne Benefit day on Saturday which was co-organised by the Warwick Cowboys and Killarney Cutters rugby league clubs and Border Rugby League.

The day was to raise funds to buy a wheelchair for Sinclair who is currently in hospital in Brisbane after a car accident in Canada last year.

Donations are still being accepted at Carey Brothers Meats in Locke Street and with Border president Steve McEvoy at the YMCA at Stanthorpe.
