South Australian Rugby Premier Grade Round 6

South Australian Rugby Premier Grade Round 6

To all readers and supporters of rugby in SA. Unfortunately the report this week is going to be a bit of an abbreviated one. I was unable to attend any of the matches due to illness, and a lot of my sources were unable to provide me with any solid information for various reasons also. As such, rather than speculate on the games, I think it’s better just to state the facts and look forward to next week. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a short catch-up on each of the games next week. Thanks, Conor.

Also, a quick mention of good luck to the following players who will be representing the State at the ACT Provincial Championships next weekend:

Team Manager- Mark Dobson

Coach- Barry Cooper

Team Assistant- Richard Karpinski

Team Assistant- Helen Cooper

Head Coach Barry Cooper has done a fantastic job in selecting a very competitive team whilst dealing with a number of injuries and player unavailability. With the selection of players from both Adelaide University and the Barossa Rams along with a staff member from North Torrens it is fantastic to see that ten of the unions eleven senior clubs are represented in the team.

In A Statement From Rugby SA:

The last few years has been a difficult period for the senior representative program, especially since the Australian Rugby Shield finished in 2008. Due to cost issues in the last 6 months the men’s state team has had to withdraw from both a trip to New Zealand and the Northern Territory.

Players have been invited to represent the South Australian State Side on a ‘pay for play basis’. Whilst the most outstanding players were invited first it is not necessarily the best 23 players in the state at the time due to the side being player funded. When a senior representative program is fully funded the traditional ‘Black Falcons’ name will be re-adopted.

SA Rugby Union is very appreciative of the support shown by the ACT Brumbies at such short notice.
