Special thanks to the Under 16s


The Under 16 team and coaches Greg Easy and Gavin Douglass were acknowledged for the contribution and success they have had including U13 B grade Premiers, U14 A grade Plate winners, U15 B grade Premiers, U16 A grade Semi Finalist. Central to their success has been Head Coach for the last 4 seasons Greg Easy who has taught the boys about playing their best rugby for the love of the game, putting the team before self and respecting the opposition. And thanks to another integral member of the team Jillian Cressey who has managed the team for the last 6 years. Your commitment to this team and the entire LCJRU community is second to none.


Club Man of the Year 


Club man of the year award went to Under 16’s Hamish Cressey. Hamish started playing for Lane Cove in U8s in 2010. He’s played Gordon reps in U10 to U16 – this year winning the U16 State Championship title. In addition, this year in year 10 he is already in the 2nd XV at Riverview, played in the Sydney Juniors Metro Northern Zone team, was selected in the GPS Presidents XV, was selected for NSW U17 Sevens team, and was selected in the NSW U16 Gen Blue team that will compete at the Nationals on the Gold Coast in September. What a great effort! Thanks to Hamish and his family for being great supporters of our club.


Life Membership


Life Membership was awarded to James Ashworth. Life Memberhip is only awarded on special occasions to recognise an enormous contribution by someone in our rugby community. James started with the club 9 years ago managing his eldest son’s Under 6 team.

James has been an active member of the club ever since. He has been Team Manager for both his sons, Age Coordinator and most importantly Treasurer of the Club for four years. He has supported the club enormously with his generous contribution of club merchandise, gear and bags. Recently he donated all the shelving at Blackman Park. We are not aware of anyone who has contributed so much to the financial well-being of the club in its 67 year history. 

Congratulations James. It was so nice to see how warmly James’ Life Membership was received by the Club at Presentation Day.

Tantallon is a 1st class oval with 3rd class facilities that are in desperate need of upgrading. LCJRC has been working with Lane Cove Council and the other sporting clubs that use Tantallon Oval to produce a proposal for the re-development of the grandstand and amenities. Together we have drafted design plans and we are now in the process of working with Council to commence DA. Watch this video to learn more!

Our Visions: Upgrade the Amenities and create a new shared Community Facility at Tantallon Oval, including: 

- Build a new Facility/Club House and viewing deck on the foundations of the existing change room and grandstand 
- New Seating 
- Upgrade toilets and increased facilities for women 
- Repair change rooms 
– New storage and BBQ facilities 
– Provide a lift for access to the grandstand facility

A fundraising for the development of a Community Facility and Club House at Tantallon Oval is now underway. Club members can make a tax deductible donation today. Or goal is to raise $250,00.
