Supporting our community has always been an integral part of the Cobden & Hayson ethos and this particularly applies to getting behind our young locals and the stars of tomorrow. We’re proud supporters of Balmain Junior Rugby, who are hosting their Inaugural Rugby Gala Dinner fundraiser this Saturday night.

Since its inception in 2011, Balmain Junior Rugby has gone from strength to strength, becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Inner West. The club’s values closely align with our own here at C&H, so there’s a great synergy between us. Like us, they’re all about teamwork, strong communication, resilience and respect. Importantly, they promote inclusiveness and ensure all players enjoy the game while developing key skills that help establish a strong foundation for life.

Balmain Rugby has teams across all junior ages for boys and girls wanting to pull on the black and gold, starting at the U6s and developing through to the U15s. The club is also part of the representative pathway to Sydney University through its Junior Player Program, which commences at U10s and offers opportunities to play Representative Rugby.

The dinner will raise money for Balenabelo village in Fiji, where the U11s will be visiting this July as part of their tour. As beautiful as Fiji is, more than 50% of the population live on less than $17 a week and can’t meet their basic needs, so this is a great opportunity to contribute much-needed funds to Balenabelo’s school and community building program.


We invite you to join us and enjoy a fabulous night of fine dining at the award-winning Bentley Restaurant + Bar ( in the city, with World Cup winning rugby legend Stirling Mortlock as guest speaker. Book now and get behind a great cause.

Where:           Bentley Restaurant + Bar, 27 O’Connell Street, Sydney

Cost:               $203.50 for 3 course dinner and drinks (valued at $300)



We’re behind every kick, and every goal. We’re behind supporting our local community.
