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 u11s James Baranowski from the 2019 season:
James was our stand out Forward again this season, making huge metres up the middle of the field or simply running off to score a solo try. His tackling was breathtaking at times with the crunch of contact easily heard from the sideline. James was again the first Petersham player selected for the Sydney Uni rep team where he excelled, gaining equal Sydney Uni player of the tournament. He was also selected in the state schools team, another amazing season from James, congratulations.
