As you may have heard we have started a new support team for our fantastic Club the Singleton Rugby 'Oldboys' or so we have been called the "SOBS". On the back of our return to Premier Rugby in the Newcastle and Hunter Rugby Championship,we thought what better excuse do we have to catch up some of our life long mates and fellow members then joining this new team. Our bodies may not be as nimble as they once were but supporting our great club is something we can do as a former player and supporter.
We currently have 33 members and counting in just 2 short weeks an are hoping of your and others support to increase these number dramatically in the coming weeks.
The SOBS members will have a key role in the support of the playing group and also the facility that we know is second to none in the NSW Country region if not Australia. We are hoping to both support with our presence at Games both Home and Away,The Club and also financially with an annual grant from the OldBoys to the Playing group. We will all meet as the SOBS to consult with the Players Committee to decide where the funds raised by your membership and other fundraising activities through the season will be spent, a great way for us to give back to the club that gave us all so many great memories.
There are a few Membership options of which you are all invited to register for and they are as follows;
- Option 1 - ($30) : Season Pass: Entry to all Home games at Rugby Park Singleton and Oldboys Membership and dedicated Verandah area upstairs.

Also communication by email of the Bulls Bulletin each month and the Weekly NHRU program. Also any relevant information happening at Rugby Park and information of what is going on within the SOBS team.
As you will see, there is many more that have pulled on the Bulls Jersey or Cheered from the sideline since Fats Halter first handed them out all those years ago, so if you can forward any extra names, it would be much appreciated.

We only have so many phone numbers and emails if you can reply to my email (see below) with your phone number, so I can update our database for the ease of communication, and do not forgot to spread the word. If there are any issues or enquiries what so ever, please do not hesitate to call.
