The three former SF Rugby Club players pictured wearing their 50th anniversary T Shirts at a lunch in Sydney attended the reunion in San Francisco late last year - from left Derek Byrne (visiting Sydney from Dublin), John Fordham and John Edwards. All three played for the club in the early 1970s.

MARCH 31 - POLYNESIAN DAY FEATURING SFGG V SANTA MONICA, LIFE WEST V OMBAC, OC V BELMONT SHORE & SFGG WOMEN V AMAZONS
Coach Shane Thompson led a team of fine young student athletes from Brentwood College, BC to Northern California this week. SFGG families billeted players on Sunday and Monday and all were treated to a fine post match meal provided by Joe Romero's family. The match was a true friendly with SFGG lending the tourists players.
Thanks to all those who helped making the event happen including Brentwood college players and coaches, the Romero family, Faupusa family and all the volunteers. Also, a shout out to our SFGG coaches: Tony Wells, Wylie Ilalio, Kevin Dixson, Sebastian Ainslie, FX and others, who take time off their work to coach our HS team. Also, thanks to ref Nome Tiatia who answered the call on a Monday night.
