Bears Locker Room

Last Wednesday (21st September) began the elite training for the Bears Harold Matthews and S. G. Ball teams. 30 players in all will attend tailor made training programs for 4 weeks leading up to the Clubs open trails on the 8th and 9th of October. For details of registration for these open trials go to to register on line.

Regarding the trials the Club has been inundated with on-line registration applications for the upcoming trials for the 2006 season. So much so that the Club has called a closing date of the 2nd of October for registrations in all 4 grades.

Congratulations to the Bears S G Ball relay squad Ashley Calvert-Evers, Josh Cass, Curtis Johnston and Michael Radocay, who came second to a speedy Roosters outfit in competition on Saturday in the lead up to the Storm V Cowboys match. The boys will now compete again on Sunday at Telstra Stadium before the Parramatta V North Queensland match. GO THE BEARS!

Good luck to Jay Florimo, son of Greg, as he heads over seas to represent Italy in the Junior World Championship which will be held in Russia. Accompanying him will be North Sydney 2005 Matts players Francesco Frustaci and Steven Kadry. Also fellow Bears Harold Matthews player Harrison Croghan has made the Australian Affiliated States Team that will also be competing. Competition begins 23rd September with the Grand Final to be played out on the 1st of October - Go Jay, go Franni, go Steve and go Harry!

And mark the date of 14th of October in your diaries as this will be the night of the Bears 2005 players' presentation. Stay tuned for more information.
