Real men DO wear pink

IT’S ladies’ day this weekend at Morton Park with the Emerald Rams taking on Clermont Bushpigs in a replay of the 2009 Central Highlands Rugby Union Grand Final.

To complement the ladies’ theme, Emerald players will don pink shorts to be auctioned after the game in support of the Cancer Council Queensland.

Emerald coach John Kuavai said pink shorts were definitely a new concept to his rugby style.

“It’s something I’ve never seen before but I suppose you could say the pink goes well with the green,” he suggested.

Kuavai said his boys had really improved their fitness of late and he was expecting Clermont to arrive with a mobile forward pack to test them in this department.

“They’ve got a similar structure to ours so it will be good to see some hard, fast rugby,” Kuavai said.

“We’ve pulled one of our strike weapons out of the front row and slotted him in somewhere else, so it will be good to see him in his new position.”

All the rugby action kicks off from 4pm tomorrow at Morton Park with ladies receiving complimentary champagne.
