A Colts 2020 Update - Help Needed

After a very successful Colts information day last Sunday in which over 90 people attended, season 2020 has kicked off. We are now getting ready for our first training session on the 22nd October.

I have had another week of meetings with Todd where we spoke to grade players, club coaches and support staff and the season is well and truly taking shape. There will be a number of changes which everyone is buying into and by doing that, we are setting up to win.

Putting Colts (and Grade) to Work

We have a number of Colts players looking to start their work careers. Southern Districts have a long history of being a family and community oriented club. It's in our DNA to try and help each other. 

  • We have one player, a good young man, seeking a Carpentry apprenticeship
  • We also have a number of colts players looking for non-apprenticeship work
  • We also have players at University looking for part-time work

We also have some grade players joining the club in 2020 and we hope to help source employment for them too. A weekly bulletin of all players needing assistance with work will be distributed so ianyone knows of any work opportunities please let me know. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.


Accommodation is a very big challenge for the club. We have 1 property that is full and a number of families who billet players throughout the year. If anyone has a spare room or 2 and would like to make some extra dollars by supporting the club please let me know. We have been very lucky to have some great club supporters have players stay at their houses. They have become friends for life and it really makes game day more exciting watching these players running around Forshaw Rugby Park.

If you are able to assist please contact myself and i can discus the finer points.

To be so far advanced so early in October is unheard off and now we can fully focus on putting together a great pre season program NO club will be at the point we are currently so its important we keep this momentum building and this takes the full club community to get on board and support Todd and the board and what they are building.
