IRELAND'S Number 1 Southern Hemisphere Bar, The Down Under Bar & Major Tom's located underneath St. Stephens Green Shopping Centre in Dublin, has helped to secure the future success of the East Coast Eagles by becoming a major sponsor of one of the most recognised Rugby League club's from Ireland.
THE new improved 2004 Rugby League Ireland season is about to commence in late April and the East Coast Eagles are in the midst of preperation for the upcoming season. They have recruited very well during the off season both locally and internationally to hopefully improve on last season.
The 2003 season started relatively well for the club but unfortunately it was let down at times by a lack of depth for some key matches that left the club wanting at the wrong end of the season.
This year the clubs administration have aimed at bolstering the ranks and setting in place measures such as having the same regular training and home playing ground week in week out, also organising sponsorship to ease the burden financially on players and administrators alike.
"we really needed to organise a system that was going to make it easier on the club and the players this year both financially logistically as the club moved into its next chapter, we knew we couldn't please everyone but we think we have definatly found the right balance." states Wayne Comerford the clubs Manager.
