Season 2018 is shaping up to get off to a flying start with our new-look Ron Massey Cup and Sydney Shield teams. Our senior coaches have been busy in the off-season signing some new talented players along with retaining some of our current players fresh off the back of a successful Sydney Shield campaign last year.
With the Asquith Magpies having signed an exclusive feeder agreement with the North Sydney Bears Intrust Super Premiership (NSW Cup team) as well as the North Sydney Bears Under 20’s for the next 2 seasons (2018-19) there is no better time to join the mighty Asquith Magpies.
Asquith Rugby League Club Ltd President, Brian Fulmer is enthusiastic about the new year. “This is an exciting time for the Asquith Magpies and a great opportunity for our Coaches to work alongside of the Bears Coaches… it will also present a great opportunity for our young Magpies teams to play between matches on the Bears home ground.”
Players seeking an opportunity to play senior footy are asked to contact and send their Rugby League CV (video highlights if possible) to our new Head Coach of the Asquith Magpies, Pat Weisner.
