Men of League forms Tweed branch

TWEED Byron Group 18 Junior Rugby League operations manager Mark Harrison is encouraging all members of the rugby league community to sign up with the recently formed Men of League Tweed District Local Committee.

The recent phenomenal growth of MoL memberships nationally and on the Tweed in particular contributed to a decision being made by the national executive board to form a Tweed District Local Committee, separate from the existing Gold Coast and Northern Rivers committees.

Now, following great success at their inaugural AGM and Christmas party, the new Tweed branch is actively seeking new members and increased community input.

“They are a fantastic organisation who dedicate themselves to helping out the rugby league community,” Harrison said.

“I am sure many people in the area know of stories from some of the rugby league community that have been assisted in the past.

“During my discussions with the steering committee we discussed many ways in which MoL can assist with the promotion of the game in the local area.

“Having past players such as Graham Eadie, Greg Cox, Larry Corowa, Matt Sears, Neil Pringle and many others mix with both the junior players and their associated clubs would do wonders.

“Imagine having a past legend of the game as a patron of your club.”

MoL is a charitable organisation open to all past and present rugby league players, referees and club officials who have been involved in the game in any capacity over the past 100 years.

The main aim of their foundation is to provide care and support for those in need within the rugby league family.

The new branch encompasses the area from Mullumbimby in the south, west to Murwillumbah, and north to Tallebudgera.
