Titans at league launch
WHAT could a male model, hypnotherapist and a lawyer have in common with rugby league?
Well if you’re the former rugby league international Mark Edmondson and former NRL judiciary commissioner Jim Hall you have a lot in common.
Both men - and a few NRL Titans’ players thrown in for good measure - will be the special guests at the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League (NRRRL) 2010 season launch this Friday night.
The family-friendly event will also have the winners of the inaugural Ballina RSL Club 2010 Charity Shield, the Grafton Ghosts, and two North Coast charities, the Dragons Abreast and the Men of League Foundation, also honoured.
NRRRL President Robin Harley couldn’t be happier with the pre-season competition and the build up for this Friday night.
“This is my last season as president of the group and to establish the charity shield is a great concept and a fantastic environment for our 14 league teams to test the waters and have an early sticky beak at how things are working for their teams prior to the official hit out,” he said.
“NRRRL is always looking for opportunities to Connect with Community and partnering with the Ballina RSL Club and establishing links with these two charities is our way of giving back.”
Prior to the official start of the evening four NRL Titans players will be available to sign autographs for half-an-hour before Bundjalung Elder, Uncle Lewis Cook open’s the night with a ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony.
Country Rugby League will present their under-18 representative squad with their jerseys while a memorabilia auction will finish the night off.
Tickets for the event are available from the Ballina RSL Club. Contact 6686 2544 with adults tickets from $10 and kids under-16 free.
Titans autographs from 6.30pm in the club foyer with everyone welcome to attend.
