Life Membership for three Club stalwarts

Three longtime Club members were inducted onto Ryde Rugby’s Hall of Fame with Life membership. They are Marty and Aivi Rodgers and David Price.

Marty Rodgers was foundation president plus coach with Aivi managing club needs over many years. Both were instrumental in Ryde Rugby’s early success.

David Price of Frigcorp made sure the fledgling club had everything Marty needed to get the youngsters on the field each season.

Frigcorp has been a fantastic supporter of junior rugby for over 15 years as is still actively involved today making Ryde Rugby the best rugby club in the area.
