This Weekend: Flood-devastated rugby club has grand re-opening

From Nights, 9:20 pm on 23 February 2024

Just over a year ago the Richmond Rovers Rugby League and Sports Club in Grey Lynn was devastated by the Auckland Anniversary Weekend floods.

After a year of blood, sweat and tears, the clubrooms are finally able to re-open, and the whole community are celebrating with an afternoon of sausage sizzles, music, and bouncy castles.
