DIRTY REDS on foxtel and waratah guard of honor

Drummoyne Dirty Reds, played host to a film crew from broadcaster Fox Sports, on February 5 at Taplin Park, when the sports channel shot a commercial that will screen nationally later this month on all Foxtel channels.
The Dirty Reds Under 14 team, their counterparts from Hunters Hill Rugby Club and parents and supporters all put their acting chops to the test during the shoot, with six scenes featuring the boys showing off their skill sets, including scrums, intercepts, tries and some flying footwork being filmed.
The boys, who were premiers in their division as an Under 13 team last year, have a close bond and enjoyed shaking the cobwebs off their rugby boots, although few professed a desire to become film stars after the lengthy three hour shoot.
The promo is part of Fox Sports 2014 Super Rugby coverage and is designed to showcase Grassroots Rugby at its finest.
The shoot ensured a busy start to the pre-season for the club, which was also involved in the Waratahs' first trial game at Allianz Stadium on Friday February 7 against the Auckland Blues, which featured former West Tigers star Benji Marshall in his first game of Rugby Union, and a celebrity match up against Waratah's star Israel Folau.
Seventeen Dirty Reds boys made up the guard of honour as flag bearers, waving the two teams onto the field. Our boys saved their biggest cheers for the Waratahs, when they burst onto the turf with a new energy and enthusiasm for 2014. It was a great thrill for the Drummoyne boys to show off their pride in their club. The night of course was topped off by a Waratahs win!

TRY Rugby 2014
We will be running the “TRY Rugby” program again this year on three consecutive Friday nights from 5.30pm-7pm, at Taplin Oval Drummoyne. The program dates are: 14th Feb, 21st Feb and 28th Feb.
Try Rugby is a program designed to introduce players U6-U9 to play rugby in a fun, non-tackle environment. We welcome both boys’ and girls to come along and play. There is the opportunity for parents to ask coaches questions about playing rugby.
It will cost $20 (for all 3 sessions) and includes some free items (e.g. water bottle, ball) and a sausage sizzle.
Walk up club registration for all grades will be taking place at the same time as Try Rugby program: 14, 21, 28 Feb 5.30pm to 7pm at Taplin Oval, Drummoyne. Cash, EFTPOS, credit card and cheques will be accepted.
We are also anticipating having an online option for players who have previous played for the club. ARU will be sending those players an email with individual login details. We will let you know when they do so that you can keep an eye out for it.
Registration fees: $150 per player, with a $15 discount for each subsequent player in the same family.
Fees cover - insurance, training top, shorts, socks. This continues to represent excellent value. You will need to provide your own boots and mouthguard for your child. Head & chest gear are optional and are used at the discretion of parents and players.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our Club President: Shaun Barry (0414 852 502) or Club Secretary: Ian Williams (0417 139 838).
Training starts: March 13, Taplin Park 5pm.
At the discretion of players and managers training could be held on another night in the week but is subject to the council providing lighting on that night.
We are currently in the process of arranging trial games for U10-U16. Dates and times to be confirmed shortly.
Our U6-U9 teams are part of the Inner West Mini competition. Game day matches are played at St Luke's Oval, Concord on Saturday mornings. We only play in school term.
Our U10-U16 play in Sydney Junior Rugby Union Sunday competition (there are no zones as previous demarcated in years past). Games follow school terms but some games occur in the last week of school holidays.
