Rodda in full flight for Queensland.

Bangalow Rugby Club will host northern rivers lad, current Queensland Red and Australian Wallaby Izack Rodda at a junior rugby skills development clinic at Bangalow Sports Ground (Shultz Oval), at 4:30pm Wednesday March 28.

The afternoon will be jointly hosted by Bangalow Rugby Football Club and the NSW Rugby Union Northern Rivers development team, with the support of the St George Queensland Reds. Given Izack’s local and professional profile, and the nature of this grass-roots event, Fox Sports will also film the afternoon for the rugby program – Kick & Chase.

The clinic is a free to all, and the club welcomes the participation of all northern rivers schools, junior rugby clubs and to the broader general public.

A free barbecue will follow the clinic.
