Twelve months after three clubs left Southern Inland, this year’s annual general meeting was a much quieter occasion.
David Adamson survived a challenge from Jim Kimball to retain his role as Southern Inland president.
The departure of Temora, Cootamundra and Young saw first grade teams drop from 11 to eight in 2016, but going off a relatively speedy meeting on Sunday the changes have been well received.
SIRU rugby manager Mick McTaggart said there were no big issues brought up by the clubs.
One of the biggest talking points was the battle for presidency.
Thanks to those Club & Affiliate representatives who attended the SIRU AGM & Council Meeting yesterday (Dec 4) in Wagga.
The following people were elected to various positions on the SIRU Board for 2017;
President - Dave Adamson
Vice Presidents – Carl King (Seniors Rugby) & Linden Gunn (Juniors Rugby)

Our Competition next year will kick off on Saturday, April 8th and our Grand Finals are scheduled for Sat Aug 26
My aim is to have a 2017 Competition Draw for 1st & 2nd Grade out to you before Xmas
This is early bird notice that the SIRU AGM and Council Meeting (to follow the AGM) will be held on Sunday, December 4 at Romano’s Hotel, Wagga commencing at 2.00pm
