First tro­phy for new club­house

Comment News (Gosnells) - - Sport -

ARKS Rugby Union Foot­ball Club moved to a new club­house and grounds at the Har­ris­dale Pav­il­ion at the end of the 2016 sea­son.

Har­ris­dale Pav­il­ion in­cludes two pitches and a brand new club­house with mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties.

Off-sea­son work in­cluded a suc­cess­ful 7s com­pe­ti­tion and pre-sea­son train­ing pro­gram for the Se­niors and Un­der-20s.

The cul­mi­na­tion of the pro­gram was a well-at­tended coach­ing day on Satur­day March 11, fol­lowed by a club bar­be­cue at Har­ris­dale.

ARKS sent a team up to Ger­ald­ton for a 10-a-side com­pe­ti­tion.

Two ARKS sides com­peted with the young ARKS in op­po­si­tion to the Ki­mono Dragons, made up of older ARKS play­ers.

ARKS lost their first game against the Ger­ald­ton Tiger Sharks, los­ing 510 in the last minute.

They then went on to win all the other round-robin games but needed to win by a mar­gin of 56 points to be in the fi­nal.

Tak­ing on the Col­lie Mon­grels, they won 80-0.

The fi­nal was against long-time ri­vals South­ern Li­ons and was a hard­fought game, with ARKS emerg­ing vic­to­ri­ous 19-17 and com­ing home with the first tro­phy for Har­ris­dale Pav­il­ion.

The sea­son proper starts on March 25 with games against Kwinana and then the first home and twi­light game on April 1 at Har­ris­dale Pav­il­ion, un­der lights, against Perth Ir­ish.

Details of the pro­gram and lunch book­ings can be found on ARKS RUFC Face­book page.
