Ryde Eastwood Leagues initiative a huge boost for Tigers nursery


BUDDING rugby league juniors Joshua Whitty (Holy Cross Rhinos), Malik Karhani (North Ryde Hawks), Nicholas Taranto (Dundas Shamrocks) and Samuel Sherlock (Carlingford Cougars) model the new headgear provided by Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club for all U/6, U/7, U/8, U/9 and U/10 players in the Balmain Junior League this season.

In a wonderful initiative, the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club Board of Directors have ensured that all Mini League cubs with North Ryde Hawks, Dundas Shamrocks, Holy Cross Rhinos and Carlingford Cougars will step out in 2016 with head gear and mouth guards in their respective club colours.

This grass-roots sponsorship is a tremendous boost for the Junior League and will help the players and their parents feel safe and more confident when playing the game.

All four clubs fully endorse the project and thanked the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club directors for their forward thinking and continued generosity.

RELC president Keith Aggett, a former top grade hooker with Balmain and Parramatta, said the club’s charter was to foster the game of rugby league in the Ryde district and this latest initiative was a huge fillip for the Balmain Junior League.
