14 Aug A Message from the President, Brendan ‘Trendy’ Allardyce
Presidents Grand Final Message 2019
Dear Vikings Rugby Family
The 2019 season has been full of challenges. It has also been a season where our famed Vikings spirit has risen to those challenges.
Both on and off the field, we have continued to progress our great club and be the bench marks and pace setters for what clubs can achieve.
Just as our 2019 motto requires; we have Raised the Bar!
Thus far, our on-field finals series results are not quite as lofty as last year. Three (3) grades have been bundled out of semi-finals or preliminary finals, two of them with penalties after the final siren. We are not a club that makes excuses, so we move on and find our top two grades in Grand Finals this weekend. What a great opportunity to finish the season on massive highs not only for the 45 or so players involved on the day but indeed for the whole club.
A massive vote of thanks to our amazing full-time staff. Nick Scrivener, Lee Boswell and Ryne Bowden are tireless professionals whose passion and dedication inspire.
To our coaches, managers, volunteer support staff and medical team – Wow, thank you for being first class and for constantly going above and beyond in your care of our players.
To the Vikings Group and all our lifeblood sponsor partners, old boys, juniors and all supporters – thank you for wonderful contributions in 2019.
As excitement and anticipation build this week, good luck to the players & support staff involved in massive Grand Finals; win or lose I know you will do us proud.
See you all in a sea of RED on Saturday!
Brendan ‘Trendy’ Allardyce
