The Brunswick Billygoats under 11s Rugby team has played two matches this year and for a group of kids who have never played rugby before they have set the park alight with enthusiasm and a bag full of new skills. It would be an absolute shame if they have to withdraw from the local competition due to a lack of numbers.

Unfortunately they have lost two players and now cannot field a side.

Rugby Union is a great sport for boys this age, it is full of teamwork, strategy, fitness, ball skills and it is a contact sport that allows them to safely push their boundaries. They have a great coach there this year in Dave Harman and also access to some very talented older representative players.

The boys play on Friday nights at 6.30pm and have many home games in Brunswick Heads. Transport is available for all away games. If you or someone you know is interested in being part of a new team in a fun sport please call Dave Harman on 0418 120 447. Go the ’Goats!!
