    Shute Shield 2020

    I'm not a follower of the Sydney University Club, but your post is an oversimplification of the reasons for their success. SURUFC is in fact a club. Students at SU can play for whatever club they so choose. Also, one doesn't have to attend SU to play for that club.Some of their players don't...

    Shute Shield 2020

    Because Sydney University rugby club, is just that, a rugby club, like all the other clubs in the competition, although the name might suggest otherwise. It is no more logical to compel it's members to be undergraduates than it would be to compel players from your Eastwood or any of the clubs to...

    Even bigger loss for West Harbour , when he left there. His form at Wests was better than at Eastwood IMO resulting in him winning the Catchpole medal there as you know.

    Shute Shield 2019

    Bit insulting to their current coaches. West Harbour for example, lost 13 of last year's first grade team for various reasons. How many other clubs would not be affected by that? I think Wests coach , Mark Gudmonson , did a remarkable job under the circumstance. By the way, Wests drew with...

    Shute Shield 2019

    Agreed. I'm not suggesting it's the correct approach, but that is the existing approach by the SRU. As far as " a couple of grand " goes, in my experience, that is not enough for the SRU to allocate the G.F. to a club ground despite the potential benefits to the club & certainly not what the...

    Shute Shield 2019

    When talking of alternate venues for end of season games, it should be remembered that the SRU have expectations of receiving funds (over & above the gate takings), either from the local council , as in the case of NSO for example , or from the club ( e.g West Harbour) if the games are held at a...

    Yes, for games played at club grounds that’s correct , but I am referring to the Grand Finals which have been at North Sydney Oval & this year’s G.F. which will not be at a club ground & catering profits will not go to the clubs.That’s my point.

    Shute Shield 2019

    Are you sure that clubs get the catering? My understanding is that North Sydney Council for example , was given the catering , while SRU got the gate. North Sydney Council bid for the recent grand finals & paid the SRU an amount for the " honour". What benefit was/is there for North Sydney...

    The ground is being demolished & rebuilt over the next 2 years. Wests Tigers are contributing financially to the process. Wests Tigers will have a high performance centre there when finished. There will be other facilities there for other local groups also. Wests Pirates will also return there...

    It should be apparent to you that annual reports are usually released in conjunction with the AGM. You mention West Harbour for example, who have not had their AGM yet, & consequently have not released their annual report. Not so amusing.

    Prior to the acquisition of the bowling club, for many years, post match was held upstairs in West's thriving licensed club in George St Burwood. This was next door to the Briars club rooms. Post match was eventually held at the bowling club when Wests gained the lease of that. This included...

    The club was originally called Burwood, & wanted to play at StLukes oval , situated in the Concord Council electorate. Concord Council did not want a team called Burwood playing on one of their fields , & would only allow it to play there if the name was changed .Hence the name was changed to...

    #773 No. The name was changed in the hope of being more attractive to hoped for corporate organisations. It was also named thus as the view from certain parts of Concord Oval incorporates that of Canada Bay.
