Look Who’s Driving the Warringah Rats Rugby Team This Season!

Col Crawford Hyundai are back as a Platinum sponsor in 2016, marking their 31st year as a partner of the RATS.  “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the RATS in season 2016!,” said Managing Director Steve Crawford.  “It is apparent the Club is really moving forward – “blossoming” both on-field and for supporters and members.  Col Crawford’s has been sponsoring the Club in one way or another since 1985 and we look forward to many more years to come.”

Speaking on behalf of the RATS players and members, Warringah Rugby Club President Phillip Parsons praised our involvement saying, ‘Col Crawford and Hyundai are joining us again this season and will support the club on so many wonderful levels.  They are very active in our community program and charity support.  They literally move us around every season in the RATS Hyundai Van!”, said Parsons.

The Crawford family have a long history with Warringah Rugby Club, not just as sponsors but also as players with Stephen and his sons Jake and Harrison pulling on the RATS kit over the years. Stephen also remains a driving force behind the Warringah Colts.  Family patriarch Col and Stephen are both active members of the Friends of Warringah while Stephen’s wife Suzy is also involved as part of the Women of Warringah committee and regularly contributes to the RATS community fundraising activities.  “From a Crawford family point of view, I am really looking forward to the 2016 Season. We have many old team mates coming down and supporting – it’s great to catch up. We have sons of friends playing and it’s impressive watching the Colts coming through,” said Stephen.  “We really want to prove the theory that a Champion team can beat a team of Champions and hope to prove this over the next few seasons when we put the sword to some of these “Super Clubs”.  Another highlight is watching our own, home grown talent being recognised and gaining Representative honours,” said Stephen Crawford.

The new look RATS kit featuring the Crawford Hyundai logo will launch in coming weeks and the RATS team gear will be transported around the grounds in 2016 in the RATS branded Hyundai van.
