Sydney University Football Club (Rugby) has been nominated in the NSW Team of the Year category for the 2010 NSW Sports Federation Sports Awards.
The awards recognise and reward achievements and outstanding contribution towards the sports industry in NSW.
SUFC had a successful 2010 season, claiming a sixth consecutive Sydney Club Rugby First Grade premiership when they defeated Randwick 46-6 in the Grand Final.
The season was topped off with the inclusion of four SUFC players on the Wallabies Spring Tour of Hong Kong, the UK and Europe. The players were Berrick Barnes, Luke Burgess, Ben McCalman and Dean Mumm.
Sydney University’s rugby success did not end there, with Colts Firsts and Seconds completing Grand Final victories, to defend their crowns and to help the club claim a seventh consecutive Club Championship and a sixth successive Colts Club Championsip.
The Football Club will be up against Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen (Sailing), NSW Breakers (Cricket), NSW King’s Cup Crew (Rowing) and St George Illawarra Dragons (Rugby League) for the team award.
The awards evening will be held at the Waterview in Bicentenial Park (Sydney Olympic Park) on February 15.
