2013 Leadership News

I'm pleased to announce that Will O'Malley will captain ROCS' A grade for the 2013 season.

This will be Willo's first season as Captain of the ROCS' and I know the players will thrive under his leadership style.

The following players will form the
2013 A grade leadership group
Will O'Malley (captain)
Chris Pahl (vice captain)
Craig Holm
Anthony Medhurst
Matthew Dawes (playing assistant coach)

All members of this group stand out as strong leaders amongst our playing group and I'm looking forward to them supporting Willo in leading the players this season.
