Georges River Rugby Incorporated

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I would like to congratulate the entire team from Georges River Rugby Incorporated, who recently received funding under the Local Sport Grant Program. I could not think of a more deserving organisation! Since the mid-1960's, Georges River Rugby Incorporated have taken the time to promote the health and wellbeing of our younger members of the community. They have truly created a culture of camaraderie and sportsmanship. The club recently received just over $6,500 to assist with the purchase of more rugby club equipment, which I know will go a long way in enhancing the quality of training sessions. The goal of this funding is to increase participation, as well as excellence, both on and off the field. I would like to thank Richard Ekholm, as well as the entire team, who despite all of the challenges, have done a fantastic job and continue to work hard for our local community. A big congratulations to Georges River Rugby Incorporated once again and I look forward to working alongside them well into the future.
