    HARDMAN RETURNS TO THE BEARS
    KOE NSW CUP

Playing rugby league is a journey, and this week the Bears had the honour to welcome back to the Red & Black 23-year-old prop D’Arcy Hardman. Hardman first joined the Bears in 2015 in our U15’s Development Squad. He want on to play in the red & black for Harold Matts (U16s at that time) in 2016, SG Ball Cup (U18s at that time) in 2017 and 2018 and for our Jersey Flegg side in 2018. A pivotal player in these teams, Hardman captained Matts in 2016 and then again in SG Ball in 2018. Originally a Hills Bulls junior, its a great synergy to have him return to both the Bears and our player pathway partner club.

After leaving the Bears, this strong prop headed north to spend time playing for the Ipswich Jets in Queensland and more recently in the Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg and NSW Cup sides. As a club, we aim to develop good players and set them on their league journeys. Seeing these players return to their roots shows the power of our pathway program and the grassroots of what the Bears are all about.  Welcome home D’Arcy!
