Penshurst RSL Rugby League wishes to express its deepest sympathies to Kevin, Michael and Anthony. Our thoughts are with you and your extended family throughout this difficult time.
The fixtures for Week 7 are now available. Please note the change to the Under 13s starting time on Sunday which has been delayed by an hour due to a forfeit in the Under 15s.
It is with great sadness that we report the sudden loss of Frances O'Sullivan, a long time and highly respected member of the Penshurst RSL Rugby League community. Fran passed away suddenly last Sunday evening, 14th May.
Fran was a well loved and popular member of the O'Sullivan and Mannering families, both prominent Penshurst RSL families. She was the wife of Penshurst RSL icon Kevin, who played first grade for St George in the 70s, and the mother of Michael and Anthony, both Penshurst RSL juniors. She was also the much loved aunt of two other Penshurst RSL juniors, Jeff and Peter Mannering. Michael and Jeff both represented St George in the lower grades and Peter is the current coach of Penshurst RSL's under 18s team.
A strong and enthusiastic supporter of Penshurst RSL Rugby League, Fran was a generous and caring person who will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
Fran's funeral service was held Friday, 19th May, at St Declan's, Penshurst and was followed by a cremation service at Woronora Crematorium, Sutherland.
Saturday at HV Evatt Park gave us some mixed results and some close struggles, with the standout being the under 10 Golds runaway 74-5 win over the Kings Head Cowboys. The under 9 Golds overcame a very strong Hurstville United in what was the match of the day 19-10.
On Sunday, however, most Penshurst RSL teams had a tough day at the office with our only real victory being the under 13s 22-16 win over Brighton Seagulls. Even the 16s victory was hollow as there scheduled opponents forfeited the match. No worries, boys, there is always next week.
Today's match at 1PM vs Concord-Burwood RSL has been forfeited. Could all boys take the opportunity to take the time to make their mothers a cup of tea for Mother's Day.
It’s on again! ...the Penshurst RSL JRLFC Trivia Night. Put together a table with your family, friends, team or work mates or come along and join one on the night at one of our most entertaining nights of the year. As usual, it will be held in the auditorium at the club, Penshurst RSL on Saturday May 13th starting at 7:00pm. There will be great cash prizes throughout the night, six rounds of trivia plus a phantom horse race, spot prizes and a extra large raffle, where everyone will be a winner on the night. This is the major fundraiser for the club and is always a lot of fun. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. PS If you know anyone who has any prizes they’d like to donate for the night contact our Social Secretary, Katrina Russell or talk to a committee member.
All of our Mini and Mod teams, from under 6s through to under 12s, are at home in week 6 of the competition. In what will be a good day at HV Evatt Park this Saturday, the assistance of parents at the canteen and on the BBQ is essential to help us through the day. Our International teams are all away, with the 13s and 14s the only teams at the same venue.
Reminder: Our TRIVIA NIGHT is on this Saturday night, 13th May in the Auditorium. MC Sloane will direct proceedings with challenging questions and plenty of fun activities. Come join in the fun by organising a table amongst the parents in your team.
