The Capricorn Coast Crocs in muddy action

Are you tough enough?

THE 2012 Rockhampton and District Reserve Grade Rugby Union competition is only a few weeks away and the Capricorn Coast Crocs' preparations are in full swing.

The boys from the coast have undertaken a gruelling off season training schedule to ensure the team is fitter, faster, stronger and more entertaining than ever.

Led by caretaker coaches Neil "Kiwi" Halliday and captain Darren Gibson, the Crocs are ready to launch their assault at the premiership this year.

Standing in the way of the men in Black and Yellow are last year's finalists, Colts Rugby Union and Boars Rugby Union. Gibson and Halliday are both keen for another hit out against these teams and believe that this year, with the wide array of talent at the team's disposal due to new arrivals and returning players, the results will be markedly different.

 The first challenge laid before Cap Coast is the annual Rugby 7's tournament held at Rugby Park in Rockhampton.

Registrations are still being taken, so if you wish to be a part of this great club, come on down to training nights at Emu Park's Bicentennial Oval, Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6pm.

There are still many volunteer positions that need to be filled within the club. As yet, the Crocs do not have a sports trainer. Helpers in the canteen on game days are most welcome, any interested parties can contact the club via email at Your support is needed to cheer your only rugby union team on the coast. Capricorn Coast Crocs' motto is: Trample the weak, hurdle the dead.
