Out here in the Bush, you don’t rock up to the game after a day of rest & your favourite pre-game meal..
You’re up early to construct & erect posts, mark the field, rope off zones, carry benches, put up tables, fill up water bottles, erect sound systems, set up canteen and licensed areas, prep the dressing sheds and if you are lucky, you go home quickly to shower before the game.
In fact everything that happens game day is because of the hard work, dedication & commitment of players, staff, Committee & their families.
So you best believe when the boys get the win, it means even more knowing the blood, sweat & tears that went into making the game possible.
In fact for our club, being able to play our maiden season in the NRL WA North West Cup & even be able to field a team for Ashburton Cup, is a win in itself!
For all the trials & tribulations, we have come out bigger and better.
As a club we are proud of our players & the efforts they have put in week after week, despite heavy work loads, family commitments and many dealing with long periods stuck in WA as FIFO workers away from their families and friends.
And we are thankful beyond words to the committee who make everything possible & the families and friends who stand behind us as a club!
Last, but by no means least, thank you to our Paraburdoo Pirates Brothers for travelling down the highway with your supporters & making it a nail biting series, we are only this strong because of the shared commitment & motivation our clubs have for Rugby League!
Boys, you did it!!!!
