The NSWPRU “Wedgetails” are the representative team of the New South Wales Police Force.

The NSWPRU “Wedgetails” are a club that is growing and developing in a positive and exciting way. Despite a history stretching back to 1921, the last few years have seen only sporadic matches and a lack of infrastructure. Despite this, NSW are fortunate to have a large number of talented and skillful and passionate rugby players in the jurisdiction who hunger to represent their force and support police Rugby.

The election of a reformed committee in late 2009 saw a renewed push to develop the NSWPRU into a strong club. An invitation by Glen Ella and Samoan International Martin Tindall to support a charity fundraiser for the pacific Tsunami disaster was a great opportunity to engage in community activities and matches. The development of a number of new sponsorship arrangements saw the financial position of the club strengthened which has allowed the investment in new kit, equipment and resources. Redesigned logos, a website and the adoption of the Wedgetail Eagle as our image and knickname has seen the NSWPRU undergo a renaissance. The Commissioner of the NSW Police, Mr Andrew Scipione APM agreed to be our patron, and we have over 80 members and that number grows weekly.

Our club continues to develop, with the formation of an indigenous Rugby 7s team, who just came third in the prestigious 2010 Ella 7s in Coffs Harbor, to great acclaim and enthusiasm from the indigenous and NSW Rugby communities.

In preparation for the 2010 Championships we have secured the fantastic coaching leadership of former Waratahs and Australian U/21s Coach Ian “Speed” Kennedy, and very ably supported by current Norths grade coach Graham Stokes. Their guidance and experience is strongly shaping the brand of rugby we want to play. We are playing against Monaro champions Goulburn “Dirty Reds” for the College Cup at Goulburn on the 17th of March in what will be an annual fixture, and then a keenly anticipated match against the NSW Corrective Services in April.

The APRU championships are our firm aim and we are keen to take on all opponents with respect and vigour to the best of our skill, while representing the best qualities of the state of NSW. We look forward to participating in the week and extend our best wishes to the host jurisdiction, Queensland for a successful event.

Yours in Rugby,

Rob Critchlow

President, NSWPRU.
