Emerald Rams ready to rock

EMERALD Rams are taking the club to their people with a renewed drive to incorporate the local community back into the rugby club's proceedings.

Heading the charge is new first grade coach Darryl Corrie, who has spent the past 20-plus years leading Noosa rugby clubs around the playing paddock as either captain, coach, or both.

Darryl's appointment follows the retirement of the Rams' long-serving coaching mentor John Kuavai, who has guided the club to multiple titles in recent years.

Emerald club secretary Sam Thomasson said this season's social calendar would be boosted with the addition of Rams at the Races and The Rams Ball collective events.

Non-playing Rams' supporters will have access to discounted event tickets, game day specials and Rams merchandise as part of their social club membership.

The club's official season training will kick-off at 6.30pm on Tuesday, March 6, at Emerald's Morton Park.
