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.
Penshurst RSL teams enjoyed a very successful Saturday in week 5 of the season. On Saturday in the Minis and Mods, our 6s and 7s started the weekend with strong performances before suffering narrow defeats. The 8s then led an undefeated charge of the Penshurst RSL teams through the rest of Saturday. Even the under 12s, who looking were at two heavy defeats in succession when they trailed 0-17 shortly before half-time, were able to maintain the Mod teams' undefeated status when they secured a draw with less than 2 minutes remaining in their game.
On Sunday, the International teams performed equally as well. Whilst the 13s and 14s put in brave efforts in difficult circumstances, the 16s recorded a big win and the 19s came from behind at half time to also win well. The 18s had a rest with the bye.
Congratulations to all of our teams on a fantastic weekend. You've raised the bar for future weekends.
This week sees all of our teams on the road, spread far and wide across the St George & Balmain districts. While under 18s have the bye this week, our under 19s finally take to the field on Sunday @ Coogee Oval against the Coogee Wombats at 1:00pm.
Week four has our mini and mod teams playing away from home and our international sides, all bar the under 19s, playing at home. Once again, the call goes out for help in the canteen and with the setting up and packing down of the field. Please try to get to the park if you can.
A very sunny and warm Saturday at HV Evatt delivered mixed results for our club. The standouts were a very strong 26-10 win for the under 10 Golds over the undefeated Renown side, and a strong come from behind 30-17 win to the under 11s at Cahill Park. Our international sides also returned a mixed bag. The under 13s got out of jail with a couple of late tries whilst the 16s and 18s finished their 7-a-side comps and are now looking forward to playing 13-a-side footy.
