The North Sydney Bears have now been absent from the National Rugby League competition for 5 years. However, the support for the club strengthens everyday. Bears faithfuls have remained loyal to the club through all the ups and downs and are not about to disappear now. The Bears are used to tough battles and the present is just another rock in the road of proud history of the Bears!
With Bears Legend Greg Florimo at the helm, Bears fans are feeling positive and it seems better days are only just around the corner. In last weeks match between the Eagles and Souths at North Sydney Oval, many Bears fans made their presence known. Some of the crowd even bearing a banner stating "Bears Forever, Eagles Never". The feeling amongst the clubs supporters has never been better, as they all stay committed to having the Mighty Bears re-instated to the NRL competition.
To cap everything off, the Bears jersey flegg side are only 1 win away from a historic semi final appearence. An amazing achievement for a club with limited resources. However you can't buy passion, and the Bears are millionaires in that department.
