Brothers in arms for new junior rugby season

THEY say the family that plays together is that family that stays together.

That certainly seems to be the case for Wurtulla- based Brad and Rochelle Williams, whose family is gearing up for another season with Brothers Sunshine Coast Junior Rugby club.

As the Kawana-based club approaches the commencement of its third season in the local junior competition, Rochelle said she believed it was the family atmosphere and the strong Brothers culture that had helped create its success in a few short years.

"Brothers Sunshine Coast rose from the ashes of the former Kawana Eagles, it's growth has been driven by a number of former Brothers players who now live here on the Sunshine Coast including Clayton Williams, John Craven, Peter Lavin and former Wallaby and Reds coach John Connolly.

"We've got a great culture, we play home games at Sunshine Coast Stadium and we have amazing facilities and great coaches including a new Director of Coaching so it's a great place for kids to come and enjoy the great game of rugby.

"I particularly love the qualities which are being imbued into the players from the senior people around the club. It's great to see our players shake their opponent's hand as well as those of the referees and coaches after a match, this teaches them respect, good sportsmanship and resilience," Rochelle said.

With the forthcoming season upon us, Rochelle will again take up the role of secretary and club registrar while her sons Finbar and Seamus will play for the under-10 and the under-6 teams.

"Brad also loves it, he has a strong rugby background having been involved as a player and a coach for Easts Rugby in Brisbane.

"He also assists the coaches of the Under 10 team and he loves seeing the boys so excited about training and playing each week. I really think playing a contact sport is a good healthy way for young boys to burn off energy as well as to learn to take a big knock and get back up again," Rochelle said.

Brothers Sunshine Coast Rugby Club is currently offering 20 free registrations for any new rugby player who registers with the Club in the Under 6 to 17 age groups for the forthcoming season.

Brothers Sunshine Coast Club patron and former Wallabies Coach John Connolly said the 'Become a Brother" campaign covered all the player's costs including uniforms, training kits and insurance which is all valued at over $200 per player.

"We encourage everyone who has a child aged between 6 and 17 to experience the game they play in Heaven, all they need to do is register at www.brothersrugbysc. com.au," Mr Connolly said.
