ROCKINGHAM RAMS SENIOR UPDATE 2018
After a long and exciting pre-season which attracted many more numbers and some new faces to the club, the PFL 2018 Season has commenced for the Rockingham Rams senior football sides.
The league side has one simple goal for 2018, and that is to improve on what we put in place last season. I am not a coach that worries about wins and losses or setting goals to play finals. For me it is as simple as if you get the basics right and you put in the hard work, then results will take care of itself. We are still a very young group and our focus is still to develop a team that enjoys playing together and will provide the Rockingham Football Club with some sustained success over the coming years. This group has the potential to play together for the next 7 or 8 years.
This year we welcomed a couple of new recruits to the club. Andrew Stokes and Kyle Baskerville. Andrew is a young mobile Ruckman and Kyle is a running Wingman, Half Fwd. Both players have been fantastic over the pre-season both on and off the field and we look forward to them playing some exciting footy for us.
We welcomed back to the club Mitch Curnow, Travis Naughton, Jake Janzekovic, Matthew Yeates and Kyle Havelberg. All of these players are Rockingham juniors who have been playing recently at Peel Thunder and have decided to come and join us for season 2018. We also welcome back Andrew Walsh who missed last season due to a knee reconstruction.
Currently we are 4 rounds into the season. We started the season with a narrow loss to Baldivis followed by wins over Mandurah, South Mandurah and reigning premiers Pinjarra.
The boys are playing high intensity competitive football which has been fantastic to watch so far. They are very exciting to watch and provide great entertainment for anyone who comes along to watch.
Currently we are training Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at 6.00pm when we have a Saturday game and Tuesday’s and Friday’s when we have a Sunday game. The bar is open on the Thursday and Friday training nights and any members, supporters or sponsors who want to come along you are more than welcome.
The Rockingham Rams Football club is heading in the right direction, there is a very positive and exciting future for our football club and it would be great to see lots of past players, supporters, officials and sponsors come down to the club and watch these young men represent our football club. As league coach I can promise you one thing, and that is you won’t leave disappointed if you come down.
Look forward to seeing many past and new faces at the football club in the coming weeks.

ROCKINGHAM RAMS COLTS UPDATE 2018
A close working relationship between the colts and our junior players is providing a pathway to these boys becoming a big part of our senior club, this is evident with pressure on spots in all three senior grades. The club has a real feel of excitement this year.
Wins against Baldivis, Mandurah, South Mandurah and Pinjarra see us on top of the ladder. With a very even spread of players, 18 different players have gained votes so far with most weeks almost impossible to separate the better players. Welcoming new players and having them step straight up in these games has been pleasing and how quick they have adapted to how we play has shown on the scoreboard.
Good luck to all Rockingham teams this week.
