Shiners-IMG_6552

Dean Trevaskis

The Moonshiners Rugby Club are ready to roll in 2014. Committee positions have been finalised after a hotly contested AGM with John Geddes holding off all challengers to retain the presidency.

The traditional Brunswick Heads Super Saturday home games are set to become extravaganzas with three games to satisfy the appetites of the Rugby faithful.

The Shiners will field a president’s cup and a Second Grade senior side with Brunswick Valley Junior Under-18s also playing on Saturdays.

Shane Ivey lines up for his second year as coach and in addition to skills, fitness and Rugby know-how he will be looking to further develop his trademark ‘bit of mongrel’ into a team with that came agonisingly close to a premiership last year.

Word on the ground is the club has secured the services of an absolute gun Number 8 arriving directly from Wales in March.

Training kicks off this week on Tuesday and Thursdays from 6pm at the Stan Thompson Fields, Brunswick Heads.

For newcomers to the Shire the Moonshiners offer a playing and social experience that is legendary.

There are still a few spots left on the bandwagon so jump on board and get involved.
