I played rugby league there back in 1984 with Joeys JRLFC as a team we didnt win the grand final, but were runners-up. The team would practice at Kareela Oval after school hours in the afternoon, and then during the winter play at various sports ovals on the weekends. I was the worst player in the best team with not much confidence. At the end of the grand final my team were given two trophies and two pennants one from St Josephs, and the other from Cronulla Sharks. There was an overnight stay at Gerringong with the dads. I could have stayed playing rugby league, but due to my slim build I left. I do respect rugby league as a sport, and my team was reported in the Leader for the grand final, so it was a significant event.
