North Sydney Bears Excess Player System
To accommodate the North Sydney Bears Senior contracted players who are not selected for the Intrust Super Premiership throughout the season, the Bears have also partnered with open age teams in the Sydney Shield and Ron Massey Cup Competitions. These partnerships also allow opportunities for emerging North Sydney Junior Representatives to have experience in open age competition.
Established: 1953 Home Ground: Storey Park
Although our club history can be traced back a little further, the Asquith Magpies came into formal existence in 1953 when we first entered a team in the North Sydney District Junior Rugby League A Grade Competition. Our Club provides skilled and accredited coaching staff, and all of our trainers are League Safe accredited. All of our volunteers are asked to operate under not only the NRL Code of Conduct but our own club policy as well. All of this ensures that players develop their skills in a professional, friendly and safe environment.
Concord United Establish: 1956. Burwood United Established: 1920. Merger: 2001 Home Ground: Goddard Park
Originally founded in the 1920 & 1956, both Clubs have a long & proud history. Between them, they have produced many first grade & representative players but more importantly have provided hundred’s of children & young adults with a place to play this great game. Traditionally fierce on-field rivals Concord & Burwood have taken the best of both clubs to build a strong partnership based on mutual respect for our history & tradition. Each year we see more & more past players bringing their children to play for their old Club.
Over a few beers at the Bull & Bush Hotel at Baulkham Hills the clubs name and legend was born. The club’s inaugural season was 1964. We have used Crestwood Oval, Baulkham Hills, as our home ground since Crestwood was created in the 1970s. Since 1963, hundreds of dedicated volunteers and sponsors have delivered the Hills Bulls Mission: We will provide the opportunity for any child, or young man, irrespective of ability or background, to learn the game, play the game and love the game.
