On 19 June, 2021, the Sydney University Football Club held its second Wallaby Legends Lunch to honour some past greats of the club. This year, the lunch took place ahead of the Uni v Gordon Shute Shield match. Tall tales and true were told by a panel of Wallaby greats of the 1960s, and a film featuring some excerpts from my interviews on the era was screened. Classic Wallabies Sparrow Dowse, Sean Spence and the Boyce twins took part in an entertaining panel discussion, over a fine lunch in the David Mortimer stand at Uni Oval. Well done again to Australia's oldest rugby club for taking the initiative in keeping these great memories alive.
Over the weekend, the Lane Cove Rugby Club celebrated its history with the screening of a feature length documentary by Theo Clark Media at the Longueville Sporting Club. Generations of players and supporters packed the club to the rafters for a Saturday and Sunday showing of their history on the big screen. The Club also opened a new trophy cabinet at the event, showcasing its proud history.
Rugby News reports that the film, called in a film called "It's A Jolly Good Story All The Same" is introduced by Gordon Bray and is about "mateship, grassroots rugby and growing up in Sydney... going back to the early 1950s foundation of the club, lifelong friendships that were formed through playing for the love of the game are at its core". Lane Cove's Wallabies Saxon White and Ken Yanz share their memories of the club in the film, as does Kangaroo Greg Florimo. Even former foes from the Briars and Colleagues clubs make an appearance to give their side of the Lane Cove Rugby story.
