The Wanneroo Rugby club would like to congratulate Brad Campbell for being named as part of the Perth Spirit Squad for the 2016 National Rugby Championship season.
A physically imposing, yet athletic player, Brad has been rewarded for his impressive and consistent performances this season by being included in the 35 man squad.
The Perth Spirit will kick-off their 2016 Buildcorp NRC campaign against the Melbourne Rising on Saturday, 27 August at McGillivray Oval.
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.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Neil Baxter.
Neil joined Wanneroo Rugby when it amalgamated with Sorrento in 1982.
He played in all teams from 3rd Grade to firsts and then back down again. Finally he reached the pinnacle of Rugby by obtaining Golden Oldie Status with the Olde Dogs of Wanneroo.
Condolences to Julie, the boys and family for their sad loss. Neil’s service will be held at Pinnaroo Cemetery on Thursday March 31st. The service starts at 10.30am and goes for approximately 1 hour.
There will be a wake at the Kingsley Tavern afterwards.
The family has requested that they would prefer any money that was going to be spent on flowers is donated to Glengarry Hospital. The care that the staff of the hospital gave to Neil was exemplary.
Please see below for age group training days, training times and field location and their usual games.
If you have registered, please contact the coach directly (see below) if you have any queries regarding your team and training.
