Newcastle Tour

In 2017 the West Arana Hills Rugby League Football Club introduced the concept of having Under 14 / Under 15 touring teams and creating a relationship with a likeminded club to partner with. The program was introduced to create a positive rugby league experience for the players to remember for many years to come and create relationships with ruby league families from another area.

The decision was made to create a relationship with West Newcastle Rosellas JRLFC from Newcastle with the view of our club visiting first and West Newcastle visiting West Arana Hills next.

2017 Newcastle Tour

Our Players were billeted by the West Newcastle families and we can't thank them enough for their warm welcome, generosity and kindness to our players and we can't wait to return the favour next season.

Activates for the tour included two rugby league matches opposing the West Newcastle Under 14/Under 15 age groups, tickets into the Newcastle A Grade Tooheys Cup Grand Finals at McDonald Jones Stadium, team training sessions, a tour of all the facilities and change rooms of the Newcastle Knights home ground McDonald Jones Stadium, tour of Newcastle city and harbour foreshore area, swim at Newcastle Beach ocean baths, two hour go carting session, swim at Mereweather ocean baths,  lunch at Wests Bowling Club and Dinner at Mayfield RSL buffet.

Our Under 14's and Under 15's players and staff did a magnificent job of raising the funds over the season to cover the cost of the tour . We look forward to hosting West Newcastle in 2018 and then we back on tour in 2019 with our Under 14 and Under 15 teams.
