Start of 2018 season now 3 Feb

Hi everyone, please note that the start of the 2018 Redbacks season is now SATURDAY 3rd February at 09.00.  The original planned return date of Saturday the 27th January has been cancelled.

This decision takes into account the Australia day weekend where we have been advised that many families are away especially as schools only go back on the 5th Feb. We hope that moving the start date back a week doesn’t disappoint too many Redbacks.

Look forward to seeing you all on the 5th Feb at 08.45am for a 09.00 start.
