Message from Barnhall President

It is both an honour and a privilage to be president of Barnhall, and I would like to extend a warm welcome to all who visit our club throughout the year.

Over the last 3 Seasons Division 2 of the A.I.L has proved to be highly competitive and entertaining. I look forward to many more exciting games this season. May I wish our new Club Captain Rian Erasmus the very best of luck. He has been a major influence over past seasons, together with our director of rugby Eddie Fitzgerald and director of coaching Ian Morgan, we have all the ingredients for a successful season. To our honorary medical officer Dr. Gerry Waters many thanks for your many hours of dedication, complementary stitching and general repairs.

To all our captains and coaches from senior down to youths I hope you have an enjoyable and successful year. Our youths and minis section are the most vibrant in the country, It is also a vital part in producing the players of tomorrow, good luck to you all in your up coming games.

To our supporters who have travelled the length and breath of the country, keep up the good wok and I look forward to many enjoyable trips during the coming Season.

I would like to thank our main sponsor Rye Valley Foods for their continued suport over many years, they have been with us from small beginings to our current A.I.L position. A special word of thanks also to our sub-sponsors Interface Carpet Tiles and Chemical direct, and everyone who advertises in our year book.

Finally no club like ours survives and prospers with out a lot of hard work, our executive committee deserves great credit for their part in our success over recent years. I look forward to working with you this season.
