A big congratulations must go out to David Levett (Breakaway #6) and Ben Gordon (Fullback #15) who have been selected in the starting line up for the
NSW Subbies Rep team.
The teams first match is against the NSW Country Cockatoos this Saturday 21st May, 5pm in the curtain raiser to the Waratahs Vs Lions Match at the
SFS. If anyone is planning on heading to the game I encourage you to get there a little earlier to cheer on the lads.
Good luck Dave & Ben.
