Allianz Stadium – Anzac Day Cup

Anzac Day, April 25th, is a solemn day of remembrance for Australians and New Zealanders in honour of all those who have served our countries in times of conflict and on peacekeeping missions. Anzac Day is always commemorated on the same date, as it was on the morning of 25 April in 1915 that Australian and New Zealand forces landed on the shores of Gallipoli to battle the formidable Turkish forces, signalling the entry of our countries into World War I – the first such engagement for Australia since federation in 1901. For many, the day is filled with dawn services, marches to honour our troops, and the inevitable game of “two-up” in pubs and clubs across the country.

Raelene Castle was announced as the new CEO of Rugby Australia. In doing so she has become the first woman to head up any of the football codes in Australia, and the first female boss of any of the major rugby union national bodies in the world. Her most recent job was as CEO of the Canterbury Bulldogs in the NRL. She has a monumental task in front of her with dwindling finances, backlash from the decision to jettison the Western Force, and a massive disconnect with grassroots clubs and fans.
