Battered By The Bay Festival
Saturday July 8, 2:00 pm kick off
Introducing the inaugural Battered Festival 2023, where Wynnum Bugs will host Over 35’s rugby teams from around Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
The “Battered Bugs” team regrouped in 2023 after a few years away from the VRQ (veteran rugby Queensland) competition held throughout Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Wynnum has a healthy 32-strong player base, with interest mounting each week for others to join. Club support is strong for the Battered side, with junior and senior players supporting the older generation as they produce some interesting passages of play!
Sponsors’ Day 2023
Saturday July 15 from 1:30 pm
Wynnum Rugby’s penultimate day is July 15, when we invite all of our sponsors to the club for “Their Day” and thank them for their generous support of Bugs’ Rugby.
The support given to the club this year from sponsors has been huge, with 2023 being our biggest year in memory. Without their support, many things we do and have would not be possible. Some of the many items they’ve funded include new training equipment, providing our juniors with more rugby items, a new scrum machine, a container bar, and upgrading club facilities for all to enjoy.
Our sponsors are very important and special to our club, and we continue to promote and support them in any way we can.
Old Boy’s Day 2023
Saturday July 29, 12:30 pm
We welcome past players and members to celebrate the club’s history on our annual Old Boy’s Day. It’s a time to reminisce and catch up with mates from the past, to tell a few tales and walk down memory lane with what I’m sure will be embellished stories of greatness from a few.
Our A Grade and Women’s sides will be wearing our first-ever Indigenous jersey that represents the history of the land that our club resides on. Jillian Jacob, a local Indigenous artist, designed the jersey. These jerseys will be auctioned after the game.
The day marks the last fixture round for the season with four games of rugby v Caloundra. At 12:30 pm, our Battered Bugs will take on the Caloundra over Veterans Rugby (Over 35’s) in what is sure to be a great game. Following this, we will kick off Reserve Grade at 1:30 pm, A Grade at 3:00 pm and our Women’s game at 5:45 pm. These are important games for our Reserve Grade, and A Grade as finals begin the following week. There will be a huge outdoor TV to screen the Bledisloe Cup as we support our Wallabies.
