Best and Fairest Dinner
The Doha Kangaroos had the end of Season Event on the 25th of May at the Doha Rugby Club. With over 60 people registered to attend it was set to be a great night of dinner and drinks with
Unfortunately at about 5:30 that afternoon the building next to ours burnt down, turning our venue into a investigation scene. So the event was forced to go alfresco and was hosted on the rugby pitch under lights.
Overall everyone really enjoyed themselves at the event the club managed to raise some funds for the next 2012-13 as well as ptoetnial new players as well. The nights major reason was to present the awards from the season. With the usual awards being presented, with one addition being added to the honor roll this year the “Down Low Metal”.
This metal is awarded to the person that has conducted themselves in such away, both on and off the field, that brings the club into disrepute.
With the follows boys took out the awards.
