After securing the TSL Senior Premiership in 2016 the Club is looking forward to the 2017 season with great anticipation.
The Club's loss of premiership players has been widely publicised and is not the preferred end to a Premiership season, however this situation has also paved the way for the clubs young talent to step into senior roles. The club has had some great inclusions this season in the playing group Zac Webster, Harry Parker, Dylan Grant and Josh Davie. Off the field we have added Nathan Foale as Senior Assistant and Jamie Ling as Development League Coach. The club is very proud of these appointments and welcome both former players back to the Black & White.
