THANKING OUR SPONSORS
Welcome to the Richmond Rovers website.
The Richmond Rovers Rugby League & Sports Club is an Auckland Rugby League club based in the inner Auckland city suburb of Grey Lynn. Richmond is a family orientated club administered by dedicated volunteers and enjoyed by its community. The Richmond club has over 400 junior grade players, over 300 senior grade players and over 200 social club members.
Richmond is a rich in tradition rugby league club that had reached a milestone in 2013 when it celebrated its 100 Centennial year. Since its humble beginnings the Richmond Rovers Club has been and become home to many families from the greater Auckland community. Grey Lynn park is home to many of its club members, guests and is widely respected for its reputation, respect both on and off the playing field and its community involvement.
Head Coach Appointed for Richmond Premiers
The Board of Directors is very pleased to announce the Club has signed a two year contract with Bernie Perenara to the Head Coach position of our Premier side. Bernie shares our vision for Richmond as the club where all players know they will improve themselves by coming under the guidance of our Richmond coaches and trainers. Bernie’s coaching ability is recognised throughout league circles, and he has turned down an offer from a major Fox club to stay with Richmond. As Head Coach, Bernie will play a significant role in improving our players in 2015 and 2016. And so to this end, the Board is also delighted that Bernie has accepted the additional role of Coaching Development Officer specifically to coach and improve individually all our Richmond coaches from U13 grade upwards. We are looking forward to next year with great optimism, with the goal of winning all games in 2015 and jumping back into the Fox. Bernie’s appointment is the first step towards this. More to follow soon.
Richmond Bar to re-open- Bar Manager called for
The Board of Directors has determined that we will re-open the Richmond Rugby league Club’s bar in 2015 for limited hours on Saturdays from 4.00pm-9.30pm. While glad that the drinking culture that had started developing has disappeared, the Board recognises it is desirable to socialise with fellow members after game day, and that having alcohol for sale over the bar is part of this. We are now calling for expressions of interest for the role of Bar Manager. Please Email or phone Gus on 021 083 69836 or speak to any Board Director.
