Meet rugby greats on campus, and cheer on the Rays!


Rays players James Brown, Angus Sinclair and Connor Vest

If you’re on campus Tuesday or Thursday evenings, you may have noticed rugby players training at our sports fields. They are the Macquarie University Sydney Rays, a team now in their third season of the National Rugby Championships.

This coming Tuesday 30 August, though, a very special set-up is taking place, and if you’re around, head down to the University Oval to check it out!

Fox Sports’ The Other Footy Show, hosted by Sean Maloney, will be shooting a segment with four Rays players, who will be performing challenges in a brand new, specially made four-man jersey.

In attendance along with Maloney will be rugby greats George Gregan, Stephen Hoiles and Andrew Mehrtens.

The filming will start at 3.45pm at the University Oval, so come down to the fields if you’re on campus to meet the greats, cheer the team on, and, most importantly, wave to your mum on TV!

The NRC season kicks off next Sunday 28 August at North Sydney Oval, where the Rays will take on the Western Sydney Rams.
