The NRC is into its third season and sits between Club rugby and Super rugby as a pathway to develop rugby union in Australia. The competition is made up of 8 teams comprising of The Sydney Rays, NSW Country Eagles, Canberra Vikings, Perth Spirit, Melbourne Rising, Queensland Country, Brisbane City and the Western Sydney Rams all playing a 7 round competition going into a two round finals playoff. The Sydney Rays open their season on Sunday 28 August at North Sydney Oval against the Western Sydney Rams with a 1pm kick off. If you want to come and see some fast flowing rugby at a great Sydney venue then come on down to North Sydney Oval.
The 2016 National Rugby Championship is about to get underway and SquareOne are proud to announce that we will be partnering with the Sydney Rays in 2016 as their physiotherapy providers and medical service co-ordinators. With North’s having such a successful season and winning the Shute Shield the timing for us to come on board with the Rays could not be better. North’s Head Coach Simon Cron has taken over the reins at the Rays and eleven of North’s first grade squad feature in the Rays roster. Tim Bushnell will be the SquareOne Physio with the Rays after doing an outstanding result at North’s this season. It’s a great opportunity for Tim and validates the work that we have done with North’s over the last eight seasons and it’s a relationship that we will be looking to build on. The Sydney Rays have struggled in the last two years with patchy results but we are expecting that to change this year with the new coaching and management staff.
