We had a great afternoon at the Easts Rugby Union 75th year season launch. Held at the Howard Smith Wharves, nearly 300 guests joined for what turned out to be a fine Friday afternoon on the Brisbane River. MC for the event was ABC radio personality and Easts Tiger, Neil Breene. Club president, David Waldie looked back at the history of the club, where we are today and shared an overview of the next chapter for our community.
