Rugby Reunion: Past vs Present Players Charity Game Scores Big for Community

In a heart-warming display of camaraderie and athleticism, past and present rugby players clashed on the field in a charity match that left spectators cheering and spirits high. The sun beamed down, blessing the day with perfect weather as players showcased their skills while embracing the true essence of sportsmanship.

With excitement building weeks in advance, anticipation for the game reached a fever pitch. Supporters, both old and new joined us at Sunnybank Avenue to support a noble cause.

As the referee's whistle pierced the air, the game kicked off with a burst of energy and determination. Despite the fierce competition on the field, ultimately the winner of the day was not only rugby league but our chosen charity "if u care share". The charity this year is the chosen charity of our premium sponsor Breakthrough Case Management. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on this shortly and other ways we will be linking up this year!

Amidst the tackles and tries, moments of nostalgia and reminiscence filled the air as past players revisited memories of glory days while current athletes showcased the evolution of the sport (and generally much younger lungs!) Each try scored and every scrum battled reflected not only skill but also the enduring bond shared by members of the Bulldogs rugby community, something we as a club are working hard to rebuild.

Capturing the essence of the event, our club photographer Robert Dickason immortalised the day through his captivating photographs that will undoubtedly become cherished memories, but also something to build on for the future as we look to strengthen our relationship further.

Beyond the final whistle, the true impact of the charity game resonated throughout the community. Funds raised will support causes close to the hearts of players and supporters, underscoring the profound difference sports can make in uplifting and uniting communities.

I would like to extend my personal thanks to all of the players from the previous generations who paved the way for us today. Every person who has pulled on a Bulldogs jersey played a part in the clubs extensive history and we should all be incredibly proud of that. A special thanks to the veterans team who came and played on the weekend. Putting their body on the line once more in the name of charity and sportsmanship. Finally a big thanks to Mark Almond, who's support was pivotal to the event happening. His support in arranging facilities, food and entertainment amongst many other things was not unnoticed and without him the fixture would not have been possible!
