    Would welcome another club in the area - particularly if you're in our Division and can provide a local game ;)

    Where do your current graduates go to in terms of rugby? Surely there are enough from the school to really help support Oakhill with a couple of grades + Colts.

    Seems to be an oversupply at clubs like Hills so thinking a few end up there.

    If memory serves me correctly Oakhill were in Subbies a long time ago and may have even been in Div 1 or Div 2? I remember filling in for them one week and they were playing Forrest.

    Are you that old Tommy? :)

    Since 2007 they've not been higher than Fifth Division, and even then were going around with 1.5 teams most of the time before exiting the competition a couple of years later.

    It seemed they had ongoing trouble with discipline (lot of red cards in 2008 in particular) as well as sourcing and keeping a home ground.

    They were in 5th in 2004 when we were in fifth.

    I think it would have been around 02 or 03 and they had a colts side. Would be good to have them back.

    Remember playing a trial on the upper field at Oakhill College in the late noughties. Long grass, mid to high 30's temp. Not pleasant.

    Yeah. I guess during our time playing them they were always niggly as shit :) Our club has changed a lot since then.

    Back in the days of your ACT Brumbies style jerseys, remember watching Engadine run around against Matraville at the high school before they bit the dust.

    I have fond memories also Mangoman. Have you seen Minny Skinny or Rumour Ron lately?

    Brothers have 5 or 6 guys running around in 1s who have changed their team dramatically. Mid table teams would be fearful of them leading into semis..

    Interesting to see where they've come from en masse mid season

    They were the days.

    When you packed down for a scrum and the other pack was in another suburb.

    It seems Redfield are sorting out things off the field. I read on Redfields facebook about the Burfitt/Abrams issues. All the players are tagged in it (including mike dale who exiled the club in support of Burfitt). I think you will find everyone is good now and redfield can get back to doing what they do best (playing exciting rugby).

    I do recall that game after you jogged memory. I'm fairly sure we only played there once.

    You would've enjoyed that game, that field was a deadset war zone.

    Surprised no one knows as unless they've been brought in directly from Fiji they would have had to come from another club. Maybe grade?
