Golden Oldies Team Information

Golden Oldies Rugby – The Redland Crabs

Another season has started.  We are always looking for new members to join so if you want to have a run for game of touch or for 5 minutes in a game or the whole game stop by Judy Holt Park on Tuesday night at 7pm for “training.”

If you are not familiar with the Over 35’s rules they are normal rugby laws just modified so you don’t clear out rucks, no kicking and uncontested scrums for a safer playing.  Red shorts for those that don’t want to risk injury from being tackled and a few more to ensure we have fun and still play the game we love. Don’t worry about “fitness” we have rolling subs and play for as little or as long as you want, it is just about going at your pace and having a run with mates and making new mates.

And from our Life Member John Llyod:

The Fun, Fraternity and Friendship continues with several members of the Golden Oldies back for another year and we welcome many new faces.

The rugby year starts with the traditional drink on the 1st January and then onto the Waitangi Day festival in early February. This day is the official start to the Golden Oldies rugby season in Queensland and is well supported by the other local Golden Oldie teams plus travellers from as far north as Bundaberg and south to the Tweed plus the teams from the Darling Downs.

The support we have provided in the past, to assist players to play the game, will continue and wish all the junior and senior players the best during the season.

Yours in Rugby
John Lloyd
