Coach Chat – Pat Weisner Nov 2023

As the clouds darkened and threatened to unleash on Tuesday afternoon, the guys started to roll in for the first training session of the new season. A buzz was in the air, some new faces, returning players and a new Head Coach. It's always exciting to get a new season underway, and off the back of such a successful 2023 season for our Knock-On Effect NSW Cup team this one was filled with a sense of even more promise of what is installed for the mighty red & black in 2024.

Lisa Fiaola Preseason Begins 2024

This month the Bears portfolio of teams grew again with the introduction of our new Lisa Fiaola Cup squad. The Lisa Fiaola Cup is a NSWRL junior representative tackle competition for female players aged under 17 and is an important part of the pathways program leading on to the Tarsha Gale Cup (U19 Females) and beyond.

Bears Raid Tigers

Heavy hitting recruitment continues for our Knock-On Effect NSW Cup team with four strong signings changing their stripes for 2024. Big welcome to Rua Ngatikaura, Christian Ma'anaima, Israel Ogden and Jack Boyling. Ngatikaura (Hooker) and Ma'anaima (Prop) both featured in the Wests Tigers top 30 NRL squad in 2023 and bring with them top tier experience.

2024 Membership Now Available

In 2023 you turned up and tuned in to cheer on the mighty red & black as we marched all the way to the Grand Final. With your help, in 2024 we aim to go one better!

This year we had nearly 25,000 people attend our home games at North Sydney Oval and there was no better sight than seeing thousands of Bears members and fans march to CommBank Stadium chanting “North Sydney” on Grand Final Day. In 2023 we also hit the 2000-member milestone, and with your help, we are keen to see this figure rise again in the new year. Please share the Bear with your family and friends.

We have big things planned for Bears home games in the new year, filled with special events and some exclusive members-only activities. 2024 marks 30 years since the iconic 1994 “Citibank” jersey was first worn and so you will find nods to this historic moment throughout our members pack, and we hope you will wear the Bear with pride. PLUS, check out the exclusive members-only offers we are launching for the new season. Each offer is only available for a limited time!
