Media Release: Parramatta Two Blues announce Coaching Appointment

Parramatta Rugby Club is pleased to announce that Mr Rod Cutler has agreed to join the Two Blues as 1st Grade Assistant Coach to Gerrard Fasavalu for the 2014 season.

Rod Cutler

Rod Cutler

Mr Cutler has extensive experience in coaching senior level Rugby and comes to the club highly-rated. A former Manly Marlins Head Coach (2004-2007), Cutler had successful stints coaching The Scots College (Sydney) 2007-2008, Ryutsu Keizai University (Japan) 2008-2011 and in 2013 was Head Coach of Sydney University Women’s Rugby from 2010 – 2013. He is also a former skills coach at renowned Rugby nursery St Josephs College Hunters Hill.

Cutler says of his decision to join the Two Blues, “I met with Gerrard some time ago and discussed his coaching vision and observed the way the club operates, I was keen to be part of the next phase of Parramatta's resurgence in the Shute Shield.

"I think 2013 was a mixed bag for Parramatta. While 1st Grade narrowly missed finals, 5 of the club’s 8 teams made it through to at least the first week of finals footy. I am hoping that my experiences, along with Gerrard’s, will go a long way to promoting rugby in the Western Suburbs of Sydney."

Two Blues Head Coach Gerrard Fasavalu added, “We are thrilled to have Rod join us for season 2014. Rod was identified by the club some time ago as a suitable candidate to help deliver an effective program on and off the field that I believe will see the mighty Two Blues return to the lofty heights of the competition that they haven’t been since the mid to late 1980s.
“We still have a very young group of players at the club who will benefit tremendously from Rod’s experience and knowledge. We are excited by the prospect of progress.”

The Two Blues off-season training begins next Tuesday, November 5 at Granville Park, Merrylands.

Media Release - Parramatta Rugby Club To Get $850,000 Upgrade

General News

The Federal Labor Government today announced that if re-elected it would contribute $850,000 in federal funding towards a new pavilion at Parramatta Rugby Club’s home ground at Granville Park, Merrylands.

Minister for Sport, Senator Don Farrell, said funding would go towards construction of a modern pavilion with separate change rooms, media and meeting rooms, a gym facility and offices. New lighting towers and security fencing were also planned.

Senator Farrell said Julie Owens had lobbied hard on behalf of the club.

“Thanks to Julie, a re-elected Rudd Government will support the future of this great sporting community,” he said.

“This commitment today shows that Federal Labor is serious about investing in the club and its community and helping them to meet future challenges and opportunities.”

Speaking at Granville Park, the Member for Parramatta Julie Owens welcomed the government’s plan to provide funding for the club.

Ms Owens said the club’s membership and the number of registered players at Parramatta Rugby Club had quadrupled since 2010. It now had 400 registered players and 800 members.

“On weekends, the club attracts up to 1000 supporters and visitors and the current pavilion, which was built in the 1920s, is so dilapidated it cannot handle any greater volume of spectators,” she said.

Ms Owens said a modern facility would also be used by the broader community, include the Fiju Youth Initiative and Pacific Island Dance Groups.

Club General Manager Michael Bell said a new pavilion would also be a base for the TAFE courses held for members and the broader community. These are currently held in a rundown meeting room converted by the club in 2010.

“The club has outgrown the main pavilion which is deemed unsafe and we need a new secure, environmentally compliant building which will provide excellent facilities for the Parramatta Rugby Club as well as visiting sports teams and a space for community groups,” Mr Bell said.

“A new pavilion will deliver high-quality facilities for home and visiting sports teams as well as much-needed community facilities.”

Ms Owens said there was more great news for Parramatta Rugby Union with their Under 14 Representative team receiving a Local Sporting Champions Grant of $3,000 from the Australian Sport Commission. 

“This allowed the team to travel to Orange for the NSW State Championships,” she said.

"I know the U14 Representative team did the Two Blues proud at this tournament making it through to the Quarter Finals.”
