The efforts and achievements of Penshurst RSL Rugby League in season 2006 were rewarded and celebrated on the weekend 14th and 15th October.
The traditional Green & Gold Presentation was held in Penshurst RSL's auditorium on the Saturday evening for our International teams and for our club awards. The following morning at Evatt Park, Penshurst RSL junior Craig Stapleton was guest of honour at the Green & Gold Picnic day for our Mini and Mod teams.
In a packed to capacity auditorium, the Green & Gold Presentation recognised and rewarded our international players and club officials for their efforts in 2006. Highlights of the night were...
* Presentation of Life Membership to Michael Baihn for outstanding service to the club over the past 13 years
* Recognition of a successful season when the under 19s' Kevin Hadfield was named Coach of the Year
* Presentation of Clubperson of the Year to our hard working Senior Vice-President, Darryn Springett
And a big thank you to everyone that helped make the Green & Gold Picnic day such an enjoyable day for our younger players. All of the field activities combined with the presentation of the Mini and Mod team awards by Craig Stapleton made an ideal conclusion of another successful Penshurst RSL season.
Penshurst RSL has won the under 19s Grand Final in the South Sydney competition for 2006, defeating Mascot Juniors 16-14. The victory was the climax of a very successful season for our young ambassadors, who were fortunate enough to be accepted by Souths into their u19s comp this year. They were also the Minor Premiers.
The Grand Final was played in very wet conditions at Redfern Oval last Sunday, 10th September (in what we are told was the last day of footy before the old Redfern is bulldozed). At times the rain was torrential. In a tough, tense battle, our boys fought back from an early 0-6 deficit to square the ledger shortly before the break at 6-6. In the second stanza, the boys from Penshurst RSL were the more enterprising, scoring 2 terrific wet weather tries that featured impressive ball movement, to skip away to a 16-8 lead. Mascot came back with a try and, as the fulltime bell rang, were pressing our line, trying for a last gasp victory. The desperate Green and Gold defensive line held for a stirring victory.
Congratulations to the under 19s who, along with our under 10 Greens, have claimed premierships for the Green and Gold and done so with pride, good team footy and good sportsmanship. Well done to both teams !!
Penshurst RSL junior, Craig Stapleton, has been named in the train-on squad for the Australian Tri Nations and Prime Minister’s XIII teams. Craig played every first grade game for Penrith this season and has been signed by Cronulla for the next 2 seasons.
As a long term Penshurst RSL junior, we congratulate Craig on his selection and wish him well in the selections for the Prime Minister’s XIII and the Tri-Nations teams.
UPDATE 19th Sep - Further congratulations to Craig on his selection in the Prime Minister’s XIII that will play Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby on September 30. Craig will be playing from the bench. Good luck Craig, from Penshurst RSL, on your international debut !!!
