Kick-off is fast approaching, and we at the club are excited by the progress we’ve made!
In short, we had over 44 new players attend Tuesday’s training with more registered to play! Great news for all – and the club is proud of its growth in the last 8 months (and seeing some reward for the hard work that’s gone into rebuilding the club).
Ongoing efforts to increase the visibility of our club
It’s been an excellent February for us.
Our O-Week was a great success. Special mention goes out to our Patron Brian Smith, Dean Widders, Nigel Vagana, the Newtown Jets (Bobbie Goulding Jr in particular), Rentfleet, the Chippendale Hotel, Subway (Sydney Uni), Greg Nichols and Todd Smith (both NSWRL), and our players for their time and efforts.

On Facebook, we’ve just gone past 500 followers and we continue to pick up new supporters daily. We’re also on Twitter, so please follow us @SydUniRLFC.
O-Week also saw the distribution of our 2014 club brochure http://www.susf.com.au/files/SURLFC_Brochure.pdf. The brochure was very popular with prospective players and we think it sums up our club in a concise but professional way.
Special thanks to Leon Chan our professional designer for his hard work on the brochure, and for charging the club a very reasonable rate! (http://www.theloop.com.au/leonchan/portfolio/Graphic-Designer/Sydney).
Finally our thanks to our friends at Sydney University Sport and Fitness for providing us with a stall with great visibility, which really helped us to attract new players to our club.
Trial Matches and pre-season tournaments
We will soon publish the draw for the 2014 season. In the meantime we can share the following information with you:
• our first trial match will be played against the University of Western Sydney on 15 March 2014 at 3.30 at Middleton Park, Bass Hill;
