PLAYER REGISTRATION:                       NSWRU is introducing a new on line registration system
for 2009 for all players registered with the Club in 2008. This system will be ready for use from 1st
January 2009. You will receive notification of this either via e-mail or mail - in the interim period
exiting players are asked to complete a Player Information Sheet

New Players to the Club are required to complete a paper registration utilising the 2009 ARU
Membership Form and the Club Information Sheet. New players are also required to produce
photo ID and have details of this information recorded on their ARU Registration Form. All new
players need to be registered prior to participating in training and matches.

All players are required to have an e-mail address and password for entry to and use of the
Players Room on the Club website.

PREMIERSHIP POINTS SYSTEM:                NSWRU has introduced a Player Points Quota System
for the 2009 Season and beyond. The system will be in place for 1st and 2nd and 1st and 2nd Grade
Colts, All players will be allocated points at the start of the season based on their past playing
experience with discounts available for past service to the Club in Juniors, Colts and Grade. Each
player will be required to complete and sign a personal declaration form which will be verified by
the Club and sent onto NSWRU – this will determine your individual points standing for West
Harbour in 2009. The combined points tally of teams taking the field (including fresh reserves) will
be as follows in 2009:-

             1st Grade     140                  1st Grade Colts         50
