ROCKINGHAM RAMS SENIOR UPDATE 2020
The 2020 season is nearly upon us and we thought this would be a good opportunity to update our members, sponsors and supporters about what lies ahead for the Rockingham rams.
Our preseason has been fantastic, our numbers have been great and in recent weeks we have consistently had 50-60 players at training. We have moved into more of our match simulation training and Friday the 21st February was our first internal scratch match with some really good signs from a lot of players.
We have welcomed some past players back to the club and also added a few new faces that will add some great depth to our playing stocks.
Our colts and reserves go into season 2020 as reigning premiers and will be looking to improve and raise the standard they set towards the end of last season.
Our league side is also looking to improve on our football from last season. The grand final loss has left the players bitter, angry, frustrated but more importantly fiercely determined to make sure we do everything we can to give ourselves another opportunity to compete in big games.
Over the next 3 weeks we will be playing some more internal scratch matches and fine tuning some of our structures and match day set ups.
Our 1st official scratch match is the Todd Taylor cup against Warnbro on Saturday the 21st march. This will be at Warnbro recreation centre. Following this we have our 1st game of the season on Saturday 4th April against Halls Head away. Our 1st home game of season 2020 is Saturday 18th April against Mandurah.
Season 2020 has come around quick, but all players, coaches and support staff are excited about the season ahead, over the last few seasons our philosophy has been about improving our players individually and as a team so that we as a club can compete and hold our own against the good sides in the competition. Our philosophy hasn’t changed, we still need to improve each and ever player and still need to improve our team 1st ethos.
I have no doubt with the quality of players we have at this football club all 3 grades will be much improved from last season.
Looking forward to watching this football club continue to grow and develop over the coming season and hope all our members, supporters and sponsors are looking forward to the season as much as we are.
Exciting times ahead for the Rams and we hope you can come along for the ride.
ROCKINGHAM RAMS RESERVES UPDATE 2019
With the 2019 season almost complete we can reflect on a season that
has seen some very competitive football played in the Reserves grade
competition. The Rams group have jelled together very well over the
season which has seen some big wins and some narrow losses concluding
with the reserves finishing in 3rd position behind Sth Mandurah &
The Qualifying final saw us up against last year’s premiers in Sth
Mandurah. The boys got off to a good start and played a brand of
football that suits finals and were in front for the majority of the
day to run out 30 point winners.
Next we took on Baldivis at Anniversary Park in the 2nd Semi Final
with the winner booking a spot in this year’s Grand Final. In a tough
game both sides put their bodies on the line the whole game but with
the fighting spirit the boys have showed all year they came away with
a 26 point win.
Now this week we prepare for a second Grand Final in as many years and
I am hoping that the lessons learned last year will hold us in good
stead.Win, lose or draw myself and the Club is very proud of the way
the boys have continually strived to make themselves and this great
Club better and stronger.

ROCKINGHAM RAMS COLTS UPDATE 2019
As the regular season has drawn to an end and we gear up for our assault on this year’s grand final it is a great opportunity to reflect on our achievements this year.
As a senior club we have positioned ourselves in grand finals in all three grades. This is the first time this has occurred since 1996 and is an absolute credit to Scott and his ability to drive a culture of both performance and development within the whole player group.
The Colt’s season has had a focus of continual improvement and to achieve a third straight grand final appearance would suggest this has occurred. Not only have we continued to win games of football, we have also had 7 players promoted to play senior football.
As the 2019 Colts coach I couldn’t be more proud of our team. They are an outstanding group of young men who I know will do everything in their power to bring home the 2019 premiership flag.
