Sam Carson Cup

1 month ago

Colts are on the hunt to reclaim the Sam Carson Cup when they face Eastern Suburbs in the first of two clashes across Friday & Saturday in this week's opening round.

Established in 2010, the cup is contested between Northern Suburbs and Eastern Suburbs Colts teams on a best of 3 results across the round, currently held by Eastern Suburbs since 2016.

The Cup is named in the honor of Sam Carson (a former Norths Colts and Grade player and son of Life Member and club Wallaby Peter). Sam, who at the age of 27 was tragically involved in an accident falling four stories at a party in 2009 causing significant brain injuries rendering full-time care.

The cup celebrates Sam’s enthusiasm and energy for rugby, something we hope the next generation of colts will demonstrate year on year! While also aims to raise funds and awareness for the Fresh Tracks Foundation

"While the players are unlikely to have met Sam (or his old man Pete), it is important to learn about the stitch work that has made the club great over time, and this hopefully is the first thread of many they add in learning about the rich history of the Club and the people who have made it what it is today."

"Colts rugby is where Sam like so many players through Norths forged such a large proportion of friendships with like minded passions coming together for the first time from leaving school"

"It is equally important, like on the field as off the field, that you look out for your friends and hopefully grow into the next generation of Shoreman". - Kieith Coassin
