Shirley Rugby Stawart Roger Smith has retired as Manager of the Shirley Sports Club

Shirley Rugby Stalwart Roger Smith has retired as Manager of the Shirley Sports Club after an impressively long time.

He has been involved with Shirley Rugby in some shape or form since the early 70’s.  That’s over 50 years!

Frankly Roger aka Smithy deserves a medal for his contribution to Shirley Rugby, Shirley Sports Club and the North Beach Surf Club over the years.  He is a true local identity that ‘NZ Club land’ seriously depend on for clubs to prosper.

Smithy first made the Shirley Rugby senior team in 1972, which was his second year out of school, and played until 1982. He was a central part of what was acknowledged as one of the strongest forward packs in the senior competition for many years.
