Congratulations on 200 Games Dave Feltscheer

Dave Feltscheer, a playing legend of Warringah Rugby Club and member of the 2017 1st Grade Shute Shield Premiership side and 2018 Grand Finalists, is playing his 200th Grade Game tomorrow against Western Sydney.

To commemorate the occasion, Dave, who has been helping develop and guide our up and coming talent by playing 3rd Grade this year rather than retire, has agreed to play 1st Grade one more time again tomorrow.

This is another fantastic reason to get down to Rat Park tomorrow. Warringah’s 1st Grade side are aiming for a big win to help secure the Minor Premiership, a home final and celebrate Dave Feltscheer’s 200th Grade Game in the manner he so rightly deserves.

Pacific Island and Indigenous Round Player Profile Faavea Sila

Tell us in 30 seconds tell us about you.

Well, I grew up playing rugby league when I was 8 for Papatoetoe Panthers until I reached high school when I played my first rugby union game. I played all my rugby at Wesley College in NZ before heading to Newcastle Australia to play for Hamilton Hawks for 5 years before coming into the Rats

 

When did you start playing rugby and with what club? How did you end up playing for the Rats?

My coach at Hamilton Hawks is the younger brother of ex Rats coach Darren Coleman. Bubba linked me up with DC and made the move down to play. I also had a couple of mates playing here at the time, so it was easy for me to come play here.

 

What position do you play? 

I play Tight Head and Loose Head prop

 

Do you have any game day rituals?

No not really. I usually just chill out before a game.

 

Tell us about a person that you admire at the Club. Why do you think they have made an important impact?

I admire everyone at the club, just a lot of great people within the club but if I had to choose one it would have to be Dick Harris. He is just an all-round good bloke. He always greets you with a smile and checks in to see if everything is okay.

 

This weekend is the Pacific Island and Indigenous Round; what does this mean to you to be the face of this round?

I don’t know about being the face of the round but as for the round itself being dedicated to the Pacific Islanders and indigenous, I think it’s pretty cool. There’s a lot of us Pacific Island and Indigenous boys right throughout the club from colts to grade so it’s great to have a day to acknowledge our culture.

 

I see that you recently celebrated 3-years with your gorgeous girlfriend Sarah Burley.  How did you meet and what her best attributes?

Well we met on a night out in Newcastle and have been together ever since. Her best attributes are definitely her kitchen skills (lol). Coming home after training to a nice home cooked meal is the best! Nah her best attribute will have to be her kind heart!

 

When you’re not playing rugby, what do you do for fun and entertainment.

Not much really. I just like to watch Netflix and chill.

 

Lastly, what excites you most about the remainder of the 2019 season?

I’m excited with the position we are at on the table and the bond we have created as a team leading into the business end of the season. We have worked hard all preseason and season to get where we are and to top it off winning the Shute Shield would be awesome!

Bayfield Major Sponsor Profile Showcase

Tell us in 30 seconds about the Bayfield Group.

The Bayfield Group is a local Northern Beaches independent, family-run business with a hotel portfolio that includes Dee Why Hotel, The LightBrigade, and The Belrose Hotel. Long standing local publicans Neville (deceased), Wayne, Mark, along with grand-child Kaine Bayfield, continue to uphold the family-run tradition of offering first-class hospitality in their prestigious venues. Adding to their hotel portfolio is Bayfield’s Liquor Superstores at Dee Why and Belrose, as well as its Online channel BAYFIELDS.COM.AU. Proudly local-minded, the Bayfield family have been bringing you the best brands at the best prices for over 40 years!

 

This weekend’s games have been named the “Bayfield Cup” round. How did this round come into fruition? 

Back in 1990, we wanted to name a game as part of our sponsorship and the obvious game of choice was the local derby. This is now the 29th Bayfield Cup. We think we made a pretty good choice!!!

 

How many family members do you have actively “working” within the business and how do you make this work?

Over the years, every single family member from Nev and Pam, Mark and Yvonne, Wayne and Sharon, to all the grandchildren and most of their respective partners. Last Christmas, we even had 2 of the Great Grandchildren helping collect trollies in the school holidays! We have been extremely lucky that everyone gets along on a personal and professional level.

 

Your corporate box at the home games are usually packed to the rafters; how do you select who gets to attend the most sort after tickets for the Manly this weekend?

Family comes first followed by some of our best mates, ranked by loyalty measured by attendance to home games throughout the season.

 

What is the most memorable Warringah Rugby Club sporting achievement and why?

There are 2 standouts:

  1. 1st Grade Colts GF win in 2001 which Kaine played in and I was a manager of the team.
  2. Obviously the 2017 Shute Shield GF win at North Sydney Oval… WHAT A DAY!!!

 

Do the Bayfield family have any game day rituals?

  1. Arrive at 1:30pm- Cold 4 Pines on Arrival,
  2. Watch 2nd Grade- Cold 4 Pines,
  3. Dee Why Hotel Cheeseburger and a cold 4 Pines at 2pm,
  4. Ready for kick off at 3pm with a cold 4 Pines,
  5. Cold 4 Pines at Full time.

 

Tell us about a person that you admire at the Club. Why do you think they have made an important impact?

Being involved with this great club since 1987, there are too many people that I admire to mention that have had an important impact. That’s what makes it such a great club!

 

This weekend, WRC are showcasing your annual Burger Comp where the lucky winner receives FREE Burgers for a year at Dee Why Hotel, what is your favourite burger?

The Famous Trufflenator- It is what put Dee Why Hotel on the burger destination map!

 

Lastly, what excites you most about the remainder of the 2019 season? 

  1. Winning the Bayfield Cup,
  2. Finishing Minor Premiers,
  3. A 3rd GF in a row and winning it!!!
