Reds coach impressed by turnout at clinic

QUEENSLAND Reds coach Richard Graham was ecstatic and surprised to see so many kids turn out for the Gladstone Rugby Union Gala Evening on Thursday.

Forty-five children aged six to eight learnt the basics of the sport before the older players had a chance to pick the brain of the elite coach.

The Observer went out to Meteors Sport Park last night to bring you a glimpse of the action.

A raffle was held, along with a barbecue, to raise money and the participants were given the opportunity to get a signed rugby union ball from the coach.
