Ms P Cancer Fundraising Day 22/10/2016
What a night!
With no rugby being played some within the Merrylands Rugby community were a little worried the night may be a bit of a fizzer.
But in true Wolves fashion the faithful rallied and the night was a ragging success.
Merrylands Rugby managed to raise $2500 for Westmead Hospital Cancer Research.
All memorabilia was sold, all tickets in the “200 Board” were sold, loads of raffle tickets were sold and plenty was raised in the good old “toss the coin”
But much more than that there was as big crowd of Merrylands luminaires that came together to love, laugh and remember the Mighty Ms P.
Big thanks to Laura Sturrock for really driving the night as well as all the folks that donated raffle items including Benjamin Davis, Ross Stuart and Greg Cummings.
Big thanks to Peter Schofield who organised and ran the “200 Board”
And finally huge thanks to everyone that attended and made the night a big success!
New Head Coach for 2017!
The Merrylands Wolves are very pleased to announce that Steve Sale will be the head coach for the Wolves for the 2017 season.
Steve, along with fellow new board member Trevor Boswell, was a very successful juniors coach for the Wolves in the early 2010’s before taking a coaching role with West Harbour Colts. Steve coached West Harbour Colts, grade and several junior rep teams for a few years while also turning his hand to refereeing.
But as the old cliché goes, once the Wolves have their teeth in you they never let go. Steve had been looking for a way to get back to Merrylands and be closer to home and when the Wolves head coaching role came up he jumped at the chance.
The Merrylands Rugby Club board had several quality applicants for the head coach’s role, but Steve was the absolute stand out. He is from the area and is familiar to many players but has spent time away from the club, gaining valuable qualifications and experience as part of a professional rugby club, and there for represents the new start many in the board believe is needed.
Merrylands Rugby is very excited and honoured to have Steve Sale as the Wolves head coach for the 2017 season.
