#PartofMore: Burnie, Tasmania

The Burnie Emus Rugby Club have had their fair share of battles. In the early 1990’s the club was forced into a hiatus following the close of Burnie’s famous paper mill which led to thousands of people leaving town. Six years on a small group of passionate volunteers brought the club back to life and although some seasons it’s a struggle to field a full team, it doesn’t keep them from playing.
