Robb College Rugby Ball a huge success

The University of New England (UNE) Robb College Rugby team organised a successful fundraiser on Saturday night, July 27, at Armidale Service Club - raising around $15,000 towards the college's rugby team tour later in the year. It was a huge effort by organisers, but they received overwhelming support with tickets to the event sold out and fellow students digging deep to help. Sam Bailey was called in at late notice to be guest speaker when the original speaker was unable to make it. "It was a cracker of a night," said Sam. "I was more than happy to help them out because I know how fantastic it is to tour overseas playing rugby, because I got to do it when I was at school at TAS. It was one of the best experiences of my life."
