Bought as an auction prize at the 2017 Annual Cauliflower Club lunch - the prize of a training session with a couple of ex-Wallabies was brought to life on a chilly Friday afternoon in Forbes. Ahead of the big CCXV v Forbes Old Boys game on 28th, the juniors got their turn in the spotlight.
The clinic was run by former Wallabies Dean Mumm, Mark Hartill and Dave Carter - all of whom got as much out of the session as the young players.
There were approximately 80 players made up of U7's; U9's; U11's; U13's; U15's and U17's for the training session. The session featured a range of drills and a lot of laughter, with our trainers being more puffed that the young recruits.
With the clinic running on until 7pm, many had to be dragged back from the BBQ line to wrap up the proceedings. It was a fantastic session and hopefully will encourage these young stars to continue with rugby into the future.
It was with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of our Patron, Sir Nicholas Shehadie. A universally respected and admired man in all aspects of his very accomplished life. At the request of his family, in lieu of flowers, a donation was made to the Wayside Chapel on behalf of The Cauliflower Club. Members were represented at the State Funeral by Founders Nick-Farr Jones and Peter FitzSimons as well as Board Members Geoff McLeay and Alison Nolan.
