Rhino Cubs.....Please take a bow
It is often said that Holy Cross Rhinos is a nursery for Rugby League talent and this year is no different with many of our young men being selected to wear representative jerseys.
Even though we are only half way through our season we have plenty to celebrate with the wealth of talent we have in our Rhino ranks.
Pifeleti Pifeleti was selected to play for the NSW U16’s after his performances in the Balmain U16 Harold Matthews Cup Competition. Pif is a dynamic prop and last year won the BDJRL Jack King trophy for U16’s Best Player and was also named in the U15’s School Boys Merit Team.
Congratulations also go to Rhys Armstrong & Alefosio Tatola, two of our older cubs who made their debut for Wests Tigers U20’s this year and left their mark. Both Rhys & Fosio have been selected for the NSW U18’s Team.
Matt Woods and Fosio Tatola co-captained the 2013 premiership winning U18 Balmain SG Ball side which also consisted of the following Rhinos; Beau Allen, Nick Bell, Joshua Camroux, Tyler Cassel, Salesi Funaki, Hayden Johnston, Chris Moana, Bayley Sironen, Junior Tatola, Jack Wheelhouse and Jayden Wheelhouse.
James Clyburn, Cooper Henwood, Jean-Louis Jones, Pifeleti Pifeleti, Mehmet Savas and Christian Tarabey were also selected in the 2013 U16 Balmain Harold Matthews side which finished 12th on the ladder.
The following players deserve congratulations on being selected to the Balmain U14 & U17 Development Squads.
U14 Development Squad Rhinos were; Scott Brooks, Lachlan Camroux, Nathan Davis, Luke Hodge, William Lawson, Billy Stapleton, Mateo Tatola, Simione Teekafa, Bennett Wheelhouse and Curtis Wilson.
U17’s Development Squad Rhinos were; Jesse Bell, Joseph Carbo, Jordan Fedele, Mason Doueihi, Jye Jarvis, Jean-Louis Jones, D’Rhys Miller, Joshua Miller, Joshua Nohra, Dwayne Peters, Zachary Simpson, Christian Tarabey and Moses Vea.
As you can see from the surnames rugby league blood runs thick through the veins of some Rhino families with both the Tatola and Wheelhouse families having 3 sons each selected and lets not forget Matt Woods, cousin to the Wheelhouse boys.
Congratulations boys everyone at the Holy Cross Rhinos is proud of your achievements and the manner in which you represent our club. Keep up the great work. <News 2013>
Rhinos: NRL Grass Roots Club of the Year 2012
On Monday night I was privileged to attend the 2012 Rugby League One
Community Awards on behalf of the Rhinos, at the Sydney Town
Hall. I am pleased to
advise we were awarded the ARL Grass Roots Club of the Year. The award was presented on
the basis of outstanding service to the community through fundraising for breast
cancer, acknowledgement of the significant volunteer contribution of club stalwart John O'Brien with his successful Men of League nomination and the development of
junior rugby league. The prize was $2000 which will go
us. We were one of three final nominations Australiawide so we were very humbled and excited to win. With the support of a solid committee we have developed a strong
community base and are proud of this achievement which I believe continues to
reflect positively on the club and our involvement in
Junior Rugby League. There are some photos on the website main page and the TWT will run a small piece this week. Looking forward to the celebration at presentation day. Regards Peter
Boyle, Rhinos President <News 2012>
Rhinos play away for Round 15 ...
Round 15 of the Balmain and ICC comps sees the Rhinos playing at venues across the inner and northwest. Blackmore and Birchgrove ovals, Millner Field and Five Dock Park will host 11 of our games, the U6 and U7 Maroons and U8 Golds travel to St Pats at Dundas, our 15s head to Regents Park and the U6 Whites and U9 Golds have byes. Our U8 Whites and Maroons face each other at Birchgrove. Go Rhinos!
Discount tickets to State of Origin II in Sydney sold out ...
The Rhinos managed easily to sell their NSWRL allocation of tickets to State of Origin II. As a result, 50 Holy Cross JRLFC faithful had the time of their lives at ANZ Stadium Homebush on June 13. Monies raised, of course, go towards the running of our club.
Rhinos' season launch and jersey presentation ..
With the season almost on us, it’s time for everyone to collect their 2012 playing gear. Jumpers, shorts and socks will be handed out to all teams at Frank Street this Wednesday, April 11. The club will also be hosting for the first time a match under lights with the BDJRL U17s development squad taking on Auckland. The game will commence at 5pm and conclude at 6:30pm, allowing the jerseys to be presented at some stage during this window. Full canteen and FREE BBQ facilities will be running and we urge as many parents and children come along and support the boys. For those teams who did not collect their match balls last Sunday this will also be the only day to access the canteen prior to our next scheduled home match.
Rhino minis star in NRL half time show ...
A contingent of Rhinos U8s stamped themselves stars of the future with two outstanding performances at the recent Wests Tigers NRL clash with South Sydney at the SFS. Holy Cross Maroons ran out 1-nil winners over Umina Souths and downed Campbelltown 5-nil. A top effort, boys. Well done! The guys also got to run out onto the field with the likes of Benji Marshall, Aaron Woods and Chris Heighington.
Rhino 9s/10s win big in pre-season ...
Congratulations to both the Rhinos U9 Golds and U10 Golds on their respective 2012 pre-season titles. The 9s recently took out the Robbie Farah Challenge hosted by Leichhardt Wanderers at Blackmore Oval, downing Concord-Burwood Wolves in the final with just 11 boys available. The following week, the 10s claimed the Mark O'Neill Shield at the Shamrock's home ground, St Pat's at Dundas, winning six games on the day.
Vale Rhinos Life Member Allan Kelly ...
It is with regret that we inform you of the passing of one of our long-standing Life Members, Allan Kelly aged 83. Although unable to attend the Rhinos' 50th anniversary dinner in June due to ill health, Allan took great delight and pride when awarded his jubilee medal during a bedside visit. Allan is survived by his wife Pat, children Ross and Cathy and grand children Erin, Daniel and Caitlin. Mass of Christian Burial for the late Allan Kelly will be offered on Wednesday, December 14 within the Sacred Heart Chapel, Barnet Avenue, Rookwood at 10:00am. Following, the cortege will proceed to the adjacent cemetery. By request no flowers. Donations to a charity of your choice, would be appreciated.
Rhinos aim to make the grade in 2012 ...
The newly-elected Rhinos executive has voted unanimously to grade teams in 2012. At this stage, the move will only affect our U9s, 11s, 13s and possibly our 10s, providing we are again able to field two teams. Under the proposal, boys in these age groups will be selected in either first or second division sides based on an assessment of their performances in several pre-season trial games. Coaching co-ordinators Rhys Provan and Grant Wheelhouse will oversee the process with assistance from an independent selector and the relevent age-group coaches. The club also hopes to formulate a written grading policy . The new arrangement will replace the current system of loosely selecting teams according to friendship groups, preferences and coaching appointments. A re-grading process will take place at the beginning of each new season.
