31 October 2018
How will I register?
We encourage you to register before your first game to cover yourself for insurance. You will need to register for the season prior to playing the first trial game to be insured including trials and summer comps. Players who have not registered will not be permitted to compete.
Registration occurs via the RugbyLink website or by downloading the Rugby AU app on your smart phone and searching for "Griffins":
The price will be determined by the committee once the affiliate organisations declare their per player fee.
What is included in the registration fee?
Our fee includes affiliation to:
- Newcastle and Hunter Rugby
- NSW Rugby Union
- Australian Rugby Union
Each player will receive basic personal injury coverage covered by Gow Gates Insurance.
Your Griffins club fee goes to expenditure like referee costs, dry cleaning, council fees and other costs of running the club including many social events during the year.
Where do we train?
Training takes place at Hawkins Oval, Wickham each Wednesday and Friday night at 6PM during the winter competition. Please note that this is a shared facility with other sporting clubs so please meet near the canteen area from the Maitland Road entrance to avoid confusion
When will preseason training start?
Training will begin on Wednesday 3rd January 2019 at 6PM at Hawkins Oval (Maitland Road entrance).
