Saturday 14th October was a really great day of Country Rugby at the Yass 'Boys Above' Charity Rugby Day. The day kicked off with the Junior Rams Rugby Presentation – complete with the mascot from the Brumbies - Brumby Jack, and players James Dargaville and Blake Enever in attendance.
Over 300 parents and players were in attendance and there was a really great atmosphere. The new Juniors President is passionate about building the Junior Club and bridging the current players gap between U12’s and Seniors so it was good to see such a healthy turn out for a Country Juniors Club. Ben Alexander arrived in the afternoon and spoke to the crowd before presenting the Yass Rams with their Charity Jerseys in the change rooms..
On the field Yass Rams went on to give the Tuggeranong Vikings ‘Brown Snakes’ a dead-set hiding by 8 tries to 1 which, considering they have only won twice in eight years, created a pretty energetic vibe which continued to the after-match function where 27 Jerseys were auctioned and the raffle was held.
The Club was in fine form and it was great to see some ‘old school’ traditions being upheld and celebrated – boat races, plenty of Rugby songs with the WHOLE club all joining in, a bit of nudity and a fair amount of beer and rum all combined for a great country rugby day.
In July we were hosted by Scone Junior Rugby Club for the Cauliflower Charity Challenge Day.
In June we were hosted by Cooma Rugby Club for our Inaugural CCXV match vs Cooma Rugby Old Boys.
In April we were superbly hosted by Young Yabbies Rugby Union Football Club, for their third Cauliflower Club Charity Rugby Day
If your Club is interested in hosting a Cauliflower Club Charity Day, please select a special home game match - Ladies Day, Old Boys, Anniversary Derby match etc., . For approx $1500 we can provide 25 tailored jerseys that combine your local sponsors and the CCA look and feel for your 1st Grade team to wear. After the game the first 15 jerseys can be auctioned to the highest donation per jersey for CCA (for which we can organise tax deductible receipts). Send 3 fresh jerseys to us and we'll organise them to be autographed by current or ex Wallabies, Wallaroos or Wheel Chair players. We will return them to you for your club to auction off at a future date for your club to keep the proceeds.
Please get in touch via email@example.com and we can work through the details.
Keep an eye on our facebook page and Calendar page, as any upcoming events will be posted there.
If you would like to provide prizes for the raffle, or provide sponsorship for a Rugby Day, then please contact us as we can always use more support. firstname.lastname@example.org
