                           PRESIDENTS REPORT

 The                       Last weekend was a great weekend of football. The U6- U7- U8- U9's had a fantastic Gala Day. It is
                           always good to play against different (and stronger) opposition as some of our better teams found out on
                           the weekend at these Gala Days. I believe all teams had mixed success with some wins some defeats
Galston                    and even a draw in the U9's.

 Club                      Dural Rugby's hosting of the U8 & U9 Gala Day at Les Shore Field was a great success. Thanks must go
                           to Glenn & Heidi Houston for a BIG effort to bring it all together, and also to all those parents who
                           assisted Glenn & Heidi Houston on the day- THANK YOU.

                           To the rugby at Dural Park- thanks also to U10's & U12's parents who helped out with our second
                           canteen of the day. On the rugby side of it we had a good day. The U10's draw with the "top of the table"
“the friendliest club in
                           Hillview side was a great game, & if the game had have run its full course I think we may have seen a
       the Hills”          Dural victory. The U11's recorded their second win of the season, with a second half try scoring feast to
                           put Blacktown away. Both the U12's & U13's played entertaining rugby but were unlucky not to bag a win
   19 Arcadia Road         on the day. U 16's are starting to find some good form & the U17's playing 2 players short gave Hornsby
      GALSTON              a draw that Hornsby did not deserve, but being 2 men short took its toll in the later stages of the game.
  Ph 9653 2017             Good luck next week in our last round before the school holiday week off.

                           Please see your Manager for tickets to our Annual Dinner on Saturday 11 August $ 65.00 per head for
                           what will be a great night. Each team will be required to donate 1 item for Auction. This may be
                           something from a parent's business (ie round the world trip for 2 people- or a free cat de-sexing at the
   Shell Dural             Vet's) but whatever it is we will have a good night Auctioning it off.

  Ph 9651 4572             Dural Rugby will be putting a team onto Stadium Australia at half time of the Wallabies v Lions Test
                           Match, on Saturday 14 July. This is a great honour for our club to be invited to play a game a half time of
                           such an important Test Match before so many people- Good Luck U8's (& U7's).

                                 The first half was almost a rehash of last weeks second half. No! Sorry! It wasn't quite that bad but it was
  INFORMATION                    close. At least we scored a converted try and kept Nepean to the same. There was some good play but it
                                 was let down by some sloppy stuff and some bad options. The second half started a lot better. Foxy's
    Met Western Zone             half-time "motivational" talk seemed to lift the boys a bit (maybe I should have taped it). Some great
         (U10-16)                forward play, at times moving the ball 40 metres up field, set up a great platform for the backs to show
 24 Hour wet weather line
                                 their running and ball handling skills. The most encouraging aspect of the team's performance: both
                                 wingers, Matt and Neil, scored tries from sweeping backline moves set up by dominating forward play
      9801 0941                  and good backing up. Oh! The forwards scored some tries too. Unfortunately the game was stopped
                                 early after one of the Nepean players injured his back in a tackle. As a precaution he was taken to
            updated              Westmead Hospital by ambulance. We wish him all the best. Final score: 22-7.

                           Players (involved in the current game)
 who have signed an ARU insurance form. If you do not fall into any of the above categories please accept the rules of
Dural Rugby Club Inc., Eastwood District Junior Rugby Union, Metropolitan Western Zone, Sydney Junior Rugby Union and
stand behind the rope or designated spectators area and please stay off the field. This is for insurance and safety purposes
and is applicable for all Rugby Union games you attend. If the DRC Inc. Ground Marshall, normally Phil Overton, or any of
the people listed above ask you to move behind the ropes please do so immediately and without an argument please.
Please strive to set an example for the visiting team. The Ground Marshall’s job is stressful and busy enough checking
players’ cards, time keeping and scoring, without having to worry about unnecessary crowd control. Please understand
we, the committee, have a legal requirement and a moral obligation to provide a safe environment for all.

At no time is a parent allowed to run on the field even if a player is injured. The only persons allowed on the field are the
ones listed above. If you have a parent in your team that is either a nurse, doctor or holds a First Aid certificate and, they
are willing to be a designated team first aider, they are still required to fill out an insurance form. They must also identify
themselves to the Ground Marshall before they can run on the field. Your help and courtesy is appreciated in this matter.

It is a requirement of Metropolitan Western Zone that Clubs provide qualified First Aid at Rugby matches. To clarify St John
Ambulance’s role when attending members of DRC Inc., please be advised of the following when a player is injured;

      “St John protocol states that they will only go to help in the field if the game is stopped and their name is called
      (usually by the referee). If the game can not be stopped they can only treat the casualty at the side of the field. Their
      protocol also states that they should be asked for help, when applicable (assuming the casualty is conscious).”

From this, DRC Inc. protocol for injured players when St John Ambulance is in attendance will be as follows;

      1. A St John Ambulance volunteer will only attend to an injured player still on the field if the game is stopped and if
         they are requested to by either the Ground Marshall, Team Manager/Coach, Touch Judge, Committee Member,
         Injured Player or the Referee.

      2. A St John Ambulance volunteer will only attend to an injured player on the sideline if they are requested to by
         either the Ground Marshall, Team Manager/Coach, Touch Judge, Committee Member, Injured Player or the

      3. When the Ground Marshall, Team Manager/Coach, Touch Judge, Committee Member or the Referee are
         requesting medical attention please identify your position within the club to the St John Ambulance volunteer.

      4. Once St John’s has commenced attending a player they can not return to the field of play until they have been
         given the all clear from the St John Ambulance volunteer.

      5. At no time may a bystander tell a St John Ambulance volunteer to an attend an injured player.

A meeting was held with clubs that have had serious offences involving players and other parties. Offences included spectators entering
the field of play, player behaviour and foul play.

Whilst incidents involving players on the field may be dealt with by the Judiciary, behaviour of spectators, parents, coaches and
managers and players off the field is a matter for the clubs to control and the Code of Conduct and Rules is to be enforced.

Sufficient ground control is to be in place and a senior club administrator is to be on hand throughout the days play to answer complaints
and concerns that may occur and to maintain overall control. This person is to be visible and if need be to patrol the ground and outer

Visiting teams and spectators/parents are to be well behaved to both opposition and refereeing staff.


Should there be further incidents from any club the Zone may feel it appropriate that points be deducted or automatic disqualification of
the team involved from the competition.
