Sadly former MRUFC President Terry Coyle passed away on May 8, 2016 in Waipukurau Hospital Central Hawkes Bay. Terry joined the Melbourne Rugby Club in the 1960’s and played 1st Grade with the champion team of that time. In the early 1970’s he subsequently ran the Melbourne 4th Grade / ‘Gerries’ of the time as Coyle’s Commandos, which started a proud era of Masters’ rugby which flourishes today.

The top of the table #DewarShield clash between the only two unbeaten teams delivered a tough game of Rugby won by the better team on the day. Harlequins won the match and in doing so collected yet another bonus point in a perfect start to their season. The difference between the two teams is not as great as the final scores suggested and we are likely to see the two teams go head to head again in the Grand Final.

Saturday’s match between the Unicorns and Harlequins will see the only two unbeaten teams in the #DewarShield lock horns to establish an early supremacy in Victoria’s premier rugby competition. The top of the table clash in the Dewar Shield couldn’t have come at a better time for the flourishing Victorian Rugby community. With the Australian conference-leading Rebels enjoying a bye, all the attention will be on the local competition and the match at Orrong Romanis Reserve, which kicks-off at 3:10 pm. It should attract a larger than normal crowd.
