CLUB STATEMENT ON RECENT MEDIA SPECULATION
There has been some recent media speculation about the future of Parramatta Two Blues lately. Club President Brian Blacklock has issued the following statement.
Article in Sunday Telegraph 12th July 2015.
Parramatta Rugby Club is aware of media reports in recent days with an article in The Sunday Telegraph on July 12 suggesting a merger with Penrith Emus and relocation away from the Two Blues spiritual home. The article we refer to is nothing more than media speculation.
However, we appreciate speculation may be unsettling for our players, sponsors and supporters and assure them we will continue to work to secure the long-term success of the club with the express consultation of our valued membership and corporate partners.
The Two Blues has made no secret of a desire to have a significant upgrade to council owned facilities which reflect the ambitions of the club.

The Veteran Sporting Association (VSA) has been set up by contemporary veterans to support their mates through funding and running training programs to keep members connected, active and well. Not only do they deliver physical training programs but they also deliver coaching skills training and mental health activities. They also fund programs for their members around Australia to participate in locally based events.
Remember, all bids are binding. Where identical bids are received for a jersey, the bid received first will be the winner. The auction closed at 5PM Sydney time on May 29.
The auction has closed, winners will be contacted soon.
