Frillnecks hit off for the 2019 season

RUGBY UNION: Laughs, lubrication and long drives were just some of the antics involved as rugby players and golfers banded together to tee off the 2019 sporting season.

The St George Frillnecks Rugby Union Club and St George Golf Club held their Annual Rugby Union Golf Day ambrose tournament at the weekend, with trophies and a barbecue to wrap up the day.

St George Golf Club veterans Ross Brimblecombe, Tom Heatherington and Mark Pain took the tournament out shooting a net score of 32.45 for the day.

Frillnecks president Ben Gardiner said they had more than 60 players roll up.

It was a big turnout but, most importantly, it was about the two clubs helping each other out.

"It was a great day,” Gardiner said.

"The weather was good and we had a booze bus driving around with supplies keeping all the players lubricated.

"The girls who came up from Dirranbandi were definitely the stand out golfers for the day.

"It was their first time playing ever and they went around with Ross Brimblecombe, the president of St George Golf Club, and his golfing buddies who showed them the ropes.”

After a big day of team bonding, Gardiner said it reflected how strong the club was looking for 2019.

"The girls are looking good,” he said.

"They did exceptionally well at the Roma Sevens and the blokes are coming together nicely as well.

"They will play the Cunnamulla Dingos this weekend in a trial match.”
