We've also got Eugene & Keane joining us this year. A familiar face from the A Grade Squad in 2019 - Sam Muller will be taking on skills coaching.

Reserve Grade

Shane Te Huia will be coaching the reggies again with his trusty sidekick John Millington for yet another year. We have a new super coach in the mix with Doc Fleming moving on from Club/Team/Apparel/Registering Manager (he wore alot of hats!) into a co-coaching role with Shane.

Colts

We have an awesome colts coach for 2020! Gary Jones will be taking over the reigns for colts, where on the coast has coached stingrays. Big Gary keeps himself busy with the forwards and defence and he's brought his mate Chris along for the ride who loves the backs and attack and has interstate & stingrays experience.

2020 is looking like a good year to be a barbarian!

As Big Gary says "A storm is coming...."

Congratulations to our under 18s who came away as plate winners.

Our women’s team won their first game as a sevens squad against the Red Heavies and the men’s team had a stellar game against island nomads in their final game of the day.

A big thankyou to Sarah, the women’s manager who took to managing all three teams today and Doc, seniors manager who kept us hydrated, supplied cool packs after games and the shade for the day. Thanks to Robbo and Shaneo, club veterans for their support from the sidelines.

Thank you to Noosa Rugby Union Club for hosting an awesome day for Noosa Sevens

This signals the end of the sevens season for us here at usc barbarians we look forward to a well deserved break before we smash into 15s preseason in the new year.
