Rugby club launches season with sports luncheon
Woy Woy Rugby Club will launch its season at Ettalong Diggers on Friday, March 11, with a luncheon featuring guest speakers Wallaby Matt Burke and All Black Andrew Mehrtens.
"Both were match winners on the pitch who are now prominent commentators," said luncheon organizer Mr Kevin Glew.
"They are also extremely popular raconteurs with a host of exciting and humorous incidents to recall from countless tours, international and Super 15 matches.
