By Waratahs Rugby

As part of the HSBC Waratahs’ Tahs Together Community Program, this week marks the start of the Junior Club Blitz, that will see every one of the 53 clubs taking part in Sydney Juniors competitions receive a visit from HSBC Waratahs players before the end of June.    

The visits are part of the HSBC Waratahs Rugby’s continuing support for the NSW community game. The match-worn Community Jerseys from last Saturday's Waratahs-Stormers game are currently being auctioned online, with all proceeds going to Sydney and Country Junior Rugby.
This week we continue our celebration of grassroots rugby continues with the annual Subbies v Country curtain raiser taking place before the HSBC Waratahs v Brumbies game and 25% of all proceeds from tickets sold by both groups being donated back to Suburban and Country rugby. 
Also, following the Schools’ March Past which took place at the Stormers’ game, the annual Juniors March Past will take place at the Waratahs v Reds match on Saturday, 13 July.  That game will also feature a curtain raiser between Trinity and Newington College. 
The events are all part of the HSBC Waratahs’ Tahs Together Community Program that will see players and coaches out and about joining supporters and rugby communities across NSW throughout the season. 
Each year, Waratahs Rugby contributes well over $1,000,000 to support the development of the community game through grants and payments to the New South Wales Rugby Union.
