An afternoon of Rugby for our community.
Spotlight on our guest speaker Owen Finegan!
Owen is joining us for our first Calrossy Foundation Fundraiser on the 25th March 2022. All monies raised will be contributed to our Building Fund in anticipation of our latest release of our Calrossy Masterplan focussing on bettering the facilities for our regional students.
Born in Sydney of Irish parents, Owen Finegan was an abrasive lock / flanker whose rampaging runs on the fringes of rucks and mauls were his modus operandi. A colossal powerhouse at just shy of 2m tall and 120kg, Finegan was big, strong, bruising and especially effective as a replacement running at tired defenders. In 1993 he was chosen for Australian U21s and a year later made his New South Wales debut against Southland in Invercargill.
After just six Waratah games over two seasons Finegan moved to Canberra for the inaugural season of professional Super Rugby. Four months after his Brumbies debut Finegan played his maiden Test for Australia against Wales in Brisbane. Finegan went on to become an integral component of many great victories during the golden era for Wallaby rugby including the 1998 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand, Australia’s second Tri Nations’ title in 2001 and the 2001, 2-1 home series triumph over the British & Irish Lions.
Owen Finegan played 55 Tests for Australia in an eight-year international career.
Owen is now the CEO of Kids Cancer Project where they support the funding of about 30 research projects across 20 different institutions in Australia, supporting bold scientists to come up with better treatments and survival strategies for kids with childhood cancer.
