Cauliflower Club was delighted to be approached by Sam Needs with the offer for proceeds from the Neck Protech initiative to be donated to CCA.
Neck Protech is a proactive solution for reducing the risk of suffering a life changing neck injury on the rugby field. It is the only solution in Australian rugby that focusses on prevention rather than reaction executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

We are delighted to announce that the CCXV will play against Crookwell Dated Dogs on 30th March. As usual our team features a stellar cast and the squad will be announced over the coming weeks on Facebook, to a fanbase hungry with anticipatio
The Cauliflower Club were delighted to be hosted for a reception by His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd )) Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia and Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove. The weather was spectacular and we were delighted to celebrate the work of the Cauliflower Club in such wonderful company and surroundings.
Thanks to the generous donations provided over the past year, Cauliflower Club were delighted to be able to present Matt Mackay from Royal Rehab with a new modified Toyota Camry at the 2018 lunch in November. This will facilitate their Return2Driving program. The program promotes safety and independence in driving for people with a range of disabilities and/or medical issues.
CCA purchased an adapted pool table and presented it to Sargood on Collaroy. Former CCA Director Raeleen Hooper and Sargood Executive Officer Susan Johnston are joined by Terri and Rebecca who showed off their pool shark skills.
The table has proved hugely popular and has led to some late night socialising, We were touched by the story of one guest at Sargood who said it was the first time he had been able to teach his son something that they could do together.
Established late 2012 by Peter FitzSimons (President) and Nick Farr-Jones (Vice President) The Cauliflower Club is a Rugby based charity committed to providing sporting and recreational equipment to enhance the lives of those with a disability, with a bias towards sporting related injuries. We use the power and prestige of Rugby Union, through our members, sponsors, ambassadors, and partners to help raise funds for the Cauliflower Club to make our mission statement a reality.
Peter sees it slightly more artistically …. “Though our boots be hung and our day be done, our mission is to bring together the Rugby core as in days of yore. Let us be a gathering point for the folk, and backs too, who know that having cauliflower ears marks you as a man of honour. We want to harness the spirit and values of the game they play in heaven, and through that to give a helping hand to those who have suffered disabilities.”
Charity funds are raised via the generosity of our growing Australian and overseas expat membership base, through our annual fundraising lunch held in Sydney, and a range of events attached to various Rugby games at Local, Club, State and International levels.
Membership is $50 per year and branded merchandise is available through the Club. If you are interested in joining us – please email us email@example.com
In addition, an optional ‘try fine’ $50 tax-deductible donation is called for every time a Wallaby front rower scores a try.
