2016 is a huge year for the Under-13 Junior Illawarriors as they head over for a New Zealand South Island Tour in the April school holidays; defend the NSW Country Championships in May; and prepare for the NSW State Championships in June.
Given the expenses involved, they have called in the big guns, Wallaby greats Simon Poidevin and Phil Kearns, to help with their fund raising so all the members can go on tour.
The pair will be guest speakers at a cocktail event to raise money for the team.
The Junior Illawarriors is a regional junior rugby representative team for the Illawarra district consisting of players from ten rugby clubs – Shoalhaven, Kiama, Avondale, Vikings, Tech, University, Shamrocks, Bowral, Camden and Campbelltown.
Details: Saturday 18 March, The Pavilion Kiama, 5.30 for 6pm. $80 for welcome drink, dinner and entertainment. Tickets from illawarriors.eventbrite.com.au or phone 0413 027 939
