WARATAH SHIELD A dedicAted sub-committee (Geoff Garland, Paul Ridgway, Paul Kipp, Geoff Melville, John Papahatzis and Mark Green) have worked tirelessly towards reviving the Waratah Shield and early indications are that their efforts will be suitably rewarded. An innovative step taken to attract more entries was the introduction of a Waratah cup which will be contested through a series of Gala days based on geographical regions with the eventual winner and runner- up progressing to the Waratah Shield. Some 90 schools have nominated for the cup in addition, there have been some interesting entries in the Waratah Shield including Knox Grammar School, Newington college, Sydney Boys’ High and the King’s School. Sadly, after 10 years and 6 victories in that time, the NSWSRU will not be fielding a team in the ARU Under 16 championships. it was the decision of the ARU that NSW needed more “representative teams’ and that the previous format would no longer be applicable. We are naturally disappointed in the decision as the involvement provided a valuable learning experience for both our players and coaches. to compensate for this in some way we will be holding our first Under 16 Association championships with the winner to receive a trophy named in honour of the esteemed Martin Pitt.
