Good Evening Old Crocs,

Innisfail Vikings greatly appreciates the generosity of the Old Crocs and their contribution is heartwarming.

I’m currently at the Rugby Championships in Brisbane but will be in Cairns on Thursday if that is an appropriate time to pick up the practice balls.

I will forward account details to you shortly.

Once again thank you kindly.


Sam Qaranivalu, Junior Secretary/Registrar Innisfail Vikings -24 Sept 2013.

To the Old Crocs

I would like to say thanks for your financial support, as I’m looking forward to the opportunity to play at the state championships for the Bushrangers. I am also very committed to making the country Team.

The support you guys give to us junior players, takes some of the pressure off our parents, and helps guys like me to have the opportunity to reach our full potential in the sport we love. I can’t wait to get into it down there, and am going to push for a slot in the Country Team.

Yours Truly,

Aidan Chesterfield. Bushranger player, 19 Sept 2013.


Thanks a million for a great weekend. We both enjoyed it immensely. It was a pleasure to be with a crowd of both women and men who, as Cliffy said, were not just a rugby club but good friends as well.

Please pass on our thanks and best wishes to Cliffy and the crew.

Thanks again and best wishes

Gail, Richo, that was fantastic, really was. The atmosphere at the ground was wonderful and the whole thing was “the spirit of rugby” – it embodied it.

Well done to you – and the team of unsung heroes running the bar, cooking the food, shifting the stuff – doing all the myriad of stuff. Really made me proud to be part of the Cairns Rugby Community, reminds me I probably haven’t paid my subs…

Paul Furse – regarding Gold Legends event July 2010

Dear Gail & Troy,

I just wanted to send a short note to thank you and the other members of the organising committee for your efforts in putting on the event in Cairns. I know there was an enormous amount of work put in behind the scenes to make the event run as smoothly as it did. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the hospitality provided by the Cairns Old Crocs and the others involved. Nothing was too much trouble from organising a day trip to Green Island at short notice, the Shangri-La, a visit to HMAS Cairns, the red double-decker bus (the absolute highlight of my 3 year old son’s trip!), the rugby and everything else in between.

From a fundraising perspective, I hope the event was just as successful. It certainly gained plenty of publicity and created good momentum that can be built on for future events.

Well done again and please pass on my thanks to Richo, Danny, Darryl and the others involved.

Kind regards – Trevor Walsh – Gold Legends Player July 2010

On Behalf of the Organising committee for the Gold Legends Rugby Tournament I would like to Thank you Guys for your efforts and Commitment Saturday Night .

Talk is easy but actually putting in the physical effort and time is another thing. We can only get out of this Life what we put in and you guys really put in THANKS

We have certainly put a huge Dent in raising the Profile of the MAW Foundation in Cairns and I’ll keep you posted on our Profit Figures.

Danny Moore – Fundraising Coordinator – Gold Legends Event July 2011

And Danny an ENROMOUS thank you to you as well!!! It was a massive weekend that ran very smoothly… no doubt due to many hours of preparation and ground work on your part. I was proud to be able to assist in such a successful weekend and love being part of Make A Wish!!!

Cheers Barb, Troy & Gail

Thank you so much for the opportunity to play for the Gold legends against the Cairns Croc’s. What a great game of footy played in great spirits, one that the crowd will be talking about for years well especially Barry lee’s half time performance.

Everything that you guys organised for us was above and beyond, speaking to all the boys we were all very taken back by your extremely generous hospitality.

I know I am speaking on behalf of the other boys but we are all excited about the next game and visiting Cairns again very soon if needed.

Thanks again, I hope this finds you both well – Adam Harley – Gold Legends Player

Dear Gail & Richo


On behalf of the Newport Nasties I would like to pass on a huge thank you for organising such an awesome tournament.

The operation of the tournament was absolutely first class, making it a pleasure to have played in.

Your three off field functions were fantastic and most enjoyable, with all of the lads raving about what a great time they had at each of them.

Thanks again for the trophies.

We hope to see you next year !
