Men of League an­nual golf day

The Western Star - - Sport -

GOLF: The rugby league com­mu­nity will put aside club ri­val­ries as they come to­gether for the bet­ter­ment of the sport.

Next week­end the Men of League Foun­da­tion Roma Com­mit­tee an­nual golf day will take place at Roma Golf Club.

Since 2002 the Men of League Foun­da­tion has been the port of last call for those within the sport­ing family fac­ing tough times with in­ad­e­quate re­sources.

Or­gan­iser Lyle Cherry said he en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to come down and have a hit to support the fam­i­lies do­ing it tough out west.

“We’ve been run­ning the golf day since 2016 and it is al­ways a great day,” Cherry said.

“You don’t have to be good at golf, it’s a so­cial day and a cheap day out.

“It’s good for the men­tal health, a day to un­wind and have a laugh. It also gives the peo­ple on the land a bit of re­lief.”

Spe­cial guests on the day in­clude dual-code in­ter­na­tional footy player Ge­off Richard­son and Queens­land state man­ager An­drew Blucher.

Off the fair­way there will be cray­fish races, best-dressed team com­pe­ti­tion, multi-draw raf­fles and live mem­o­ra­bilia auc­tions that will in­clude a ball signed by Ka­lyn Ponga, a framed and signed Matt Gil­lett jer­sey and more.

Cherry said not to worry if you did not have a team.

“We will or­gan­ise that for you and slot you into a group,” Cherry said.
