The Moorabbin Rugby Union Football Club Newsletter - March 2021
Hello Everyone, Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone that helped make the Moorabbin Ram’s 7’s competition day a success, in particular, the club and community reps from Brimbank, Geelong, Melbourne Rugby Club, and Melbourne University. It was great to see clubs collaborate with Rugby Victoria to make this community event a great success.
This was followed by a huge day hosting Kiwi Hawthorn as we contested the Jack McDavitt Cup for the first time in a number of years. The play on the field was great and it was great to see all the Old Boys from both clubs down reminiscing and celebrating the day. Needless to say the Hangi was also an amazing success at the end of the day.
And we just wrapped up last weekend with the Seniors and Colts having a very positive hit out against Harlequins. The standard of play was excellent and the games were played in good spirit.
Our 2021 season is shaping up nicely and registrations in both Senior and Junior teams are strong so far but new players are always welcome.

We are all really looking forward to this year and seeing you all at the club soon.
Moorabbin Rams are looking to fill several coaching and manager positions for our junior teams. No previous experience is necessary, and we will be working hard to support you in the role. There are Foundation coaching courses coming up at the Melton Rugby Club and at Moorabbin and the club will reimburse the cost of the course for anyone that takes up a club coaching role. You will also need a valid Working with Children (WWC) card. To further help, the club has also budgeted to provide Coles vouchers for coaches over the course of the season to go towards petrol costs. Please email Ian Nathan at email@example.com to register your interest and sign up to the upcoming foundation courses.
The Rams are covering all junior age groups this season and we are also expanding our youth girls’ programs, so please get in touch if you would like some further information about registering your kids in this great sport. Senior’s This season we have seen a strong registration uptake for our senior teams. This membership base has been backed up by our sponsors providing support with some great equipment and gear to get the teams back on the field looking and well prepared as a team. This season we are also enhancing sports medicine support to our seniors which will aid in match readiness and recovery.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors this year as well. They make what we do possible alongside our fantastic volunteers.
