Kerry Chikarovski to keynote at rugby old boys lunch

The Newcastle rugby union club’s old boys lunch in August will host NSW Women’s rugby chair and NSW Waratahs board member Kerry Chikarovski as a guest speaker.

An annual event, the Waratahs Rugby Union Club’s Old Boys Association will host its major fundraising old boys lunch in Hamilton on August 9 which will also see former Wallabies Tony Melrose and Bill Calcraft attend alongside Chikarovski.

“Women’s rugby is rapidly developing and the game has attracted massive interest since the Australian Women Rugby 7s won the gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics,” Old Boys president Reg Jarvis said.

“The Old Boys are proudly supporting our undefeated Waratahs women’s team in the local competition and the test match… between the Wallaroos and Japan’s Cherry Blossom’s was a beauty.

“We decided that our guest speaker this year should be a person heavily involved in this aspect of the code.

“Kerry, or Chika as she is well known to many, has been a long time supporter of rugby in this country, and in particular the women’s game.

“Her passion for developing female participation rates was evident when she sponsored the Chikarovski 2017 NSW Women’s Rugby Cup.

“We look forward to hearing from her at the old boys lunch.”
