The 1883 honour is proudly awarded to the players that the coaches deem to have epitomised the spirit of Shammies Rugby (Inner West Rugby Union Club). They play and train their hardest each and every week and always put the team ahead of themselves. This week we profile u10s Enzo Calabria from the 2019 season:
Enzo was only in his second year of Rugby this season and he was, by far, the most improved player in the entire squad. Enzo’s improvement was acknowledged by being awarded the Maroons’ 1883 award. Enzo’s tackling and clean technique was almost text book and he combined this with a huge work rate. Enzo’s enthusiasm for training and playing every week was infectious and, for a coach, there is no greater joy than this. Whilst he cherished any opportunity to play in the Blues, he was equally committed to the Maroons every week.
