Teams of the Decade 2006 – 2015
A tremendous night was held at the club on Saturday July the 20th, for our Teams of the Decade (2006 – 2015), celebration. Where the best team of that decade was announced and presented. All the player in attendance were presented up on stage and had time to tell their unique story and the parts they played in that decade. What a side it was, many players from the 2006 premiership made the list, plus having played in finals for most past of that decade, the list of players who made the side was extremely strong and those that missed out were very unlucky. We had 20 of the 22 players selected in the side there present on the night which was fantastic.
