MAUREEN CALLS LAST DRINKS

MAUREEN CALLS LAST DRINKS

February 5th, 2017

If it’s one thing that the FUGS appreciate, it’s longevity. The FUGS have been selling raffle tickets since 2009, when we first started raising funds for the 50th Anniversary Reunion in 2011. There’s been a few constants throughout that long and strong association with TOMS TAVERN: The regular ‘bar flies’ that sit at end of the Public Bar and punt on the horses, buy raffles tickets and comp[...]

SAINT to play for Australia

October 15th, 2015

The FUGS extend their hearty congratulations to A Grade Captain, JAKE McMANUS, who was selected for the Australian Universities side to tour New Zealand. Jake has been our A Grade Captain for the past two seasons and no doubt his consistently high work rate was one of the main reasons for his selection. Jake heads off on Friday to the land of the long white cloud for a total of three matches[...]

DID IT FOR DOIGY

DID IT FOR DOIGY

September 15th, 2015

The FUGS woke up early on Sunday morning and noted that the sky was blue and the sun was golden.  Hang On!  That couldn’t just be a coincidence.  It had to be an omen!   At 11.03am, Tav, Ken & Macca sipped lovingly on their first beers at the Longboard Bar on the strand.  They barely had time to go “aaaahhhh” when Cookie and the product of his loins (Travis) arrived and joined in. Then F[...]

Finishing fast but just out of the money was RT[...]

TOUR TO TRIUMPH - Week 2

September 7th, 2015

The Uni Saints REGGIES were out to ambush the Burdekin who finished 2nd on the ladder and FUGS President, TAV, got right into the theme wearing his Anzac Day camouflage jersey and cap, which made him very hard to spot. We think he even got into the ground without paying. On the line was a spot in the Grand Final against HerbertRiver. It didn’t take long for UNI to assert some dominance and afte[...]

TOUR TO TRIUMPH - Week 1

TOUR TO TRIUMPH - Week 1

September 1st, 2015

It really is a beautiful time of year for TDRL semi-finals and the SAINT was noticed sun-baking on Castle Hill and overlooking the Reggies warm up for the knock out Semi-Final against brothers. Whatever they did in the warm up, really worked. Right from the outset you could see that the REGGIES had brought their A Game.  Hard hitting defence and slick back line play and it was one of those [...]

REGGIES ARE KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY

July 20th, 2015

The MIGHTY SAINTS travelled to Ingham on the weekend.  In a familiar scenario over the weekend A-grade were hampered from the beginning with key players being unavailable.  To compound matters car problems caused the non-arrival of another key forward which led coach Jason Grey to field a bench full of Reggies who had just played.  This aside the depleted Saints outfit fought from the first whi[...]
