Summer Education Packages

Due to a large number of coaches, referees and clubs showing interest in off season courses RugbyWA have decided to run a number over the summer period to engage those who are wanting to up skill during the off-season.

Please see the below the schedule of courses during this period.

Those who are interested in participating in any of these courses will need to register through LMS prior to the course. Due to it being an off-season calendar I encourage all participants to register and pay for the courses online. It will be a lot easier for clubs that might be in the transition with club committee and roles during this period to organise payment through RugbyWA.

If anyone is interested they may register on the link below. If they have further queries please don’t hesitate to call or email Graham Cooper on the details below.

A Roo Dog Returns

Force sign NRL star Curtis Rona

Western Force have snared Canterbury Buldogs try-scoring sensation and former Wanneroo Rugby Junior player Curtis Rona, bringing the NRL star home to Perth and a return to rugby union for two seasons.
Rona asked for an early release from his Bulldogs contract after talks with Wallabies coach Michael Cheika on Sunday and following weeks of negotiations with the Force and the Australian Rugby Union, as revealed in the West Australian two months ago.
