The Cooma red devils are encouraging the local community to attend the Cooma show this weekend, where the Old Boys will be running the Pick-A-Box.

The club says over the last week they have had significant interest shown in the under 11's team. They have a coach in mind and it would seem there are plenty of children ready to rock up to the first training session and registration day.

They also have good interest from Jindabyne boys wanting to join the under 15's and under 18 teams with parents working in Cooma ready to assist them.

Junior and senior players can register at any time, by visiting the Cooma Rugby Club website and clicking the link. 

Seniors are training every Tuesday night already from 6pm at Rotary Oval, while juniors start on Wednesday March 22nd.
