Next Round Junior Games - Saturday 26th July
This Saturday 26th July sees one Pathway team, Under 9's playing at home along with the U/16A's. 7's, 8Purple and 10's are at Brimbank, U/8 Gold play endeavour Hills but at Footscray which appears to be the home of Pathway Rugby and all else Rugby this year. U/14A's are away to Southern Districts, Under 11's are away to Endeavour Hills along with the U/12A's who will be looking at keeping their undefeated season record intact. Senior Men play their last round away against ladder leaders and Premiership favourites Eltham. The Senior Men need to find the spark that had them joint leaders at the half way mark and who have since slipped somewhat after dissapointing consecutive losses to Kiwi Hawthorn and second last Shepparton who had only 1 win this season against Geelong. A good showing against Eltham will go a long way in re-establishing themselves as "The Real Deal' leading into the first semi final the following week.

2014 - Celebrating "10 Years in the Union"!
NATIONAL RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP: The Rugby landscape is about to change in 2014 following the announcement of the running of the "National Rugby Championship". This fully self funded domestic competition will create a pathway for grass roots players to develop into elite players through the Melbourne Rebel's development system. Scheduled to run at the end of the Super Rugby seasons from August to September, there will be changes to the VRU's Senior Competition with the start being brought forward to March and being completed by the first week of August. More information of this exciting competition can be found on the ARU website.
Melbourne Rebel Membership: Make 2014 your year to become a member of the Melbourne Rebels. There are 9 different member packages available to suit all budgets including a " Supporter Membership" for those who are unable to make the games but want to take advantage of member benefits and the increasingly popular "Little Rebels" Membership which include attending a coaching clinic with Laurie Weeks and some of his Rebel's team mates, exclusive Little Rebels merchandise such as a 2014 member cap, lunch cooler bag and many other benefits.
2014 Melbourne Rebel Club Ambassadors: Your club is proud to welcome Scott Fuglistaller and Toby Smith as our club ambassadors for 2014. Scott joined the RaboDirect Rebels from NPC side Wellington Lions ahead of the 2013 season, and impressed immediately as he made the openside flanker spot his own. Fuglistaller played in every match for the Rebels in 2013, and at the end of the season was awarded the Spirit of Weary Dunlop Award for the player who showed the most passion for the Club on the field. Toby Smith is a key addition to the squad in Melbourne, signing from the Chiefs to join for the 2014 season.
Smith spent four years at the Chiefs, and was a key part of the squad that won the 2012 and 2013 Super 15 competitions. His Rebels teammates and fans will be hoping Smith can help build a winning culture in Melbourne and add to his trophy cabinet during his time here.
