Brumbies mentor boost for the Bay



WHAT better preparation for a rugby major semi-final than a training session with a leading Super 12 coach? That was the situation last night for members of the Byron Bay third grade team, as they received the benefit of rubbing shoulders with Canberra-based Brumbies coach Laurie Fisher. Fisher, pictured left, whose brother Warren coaches the Bay side, is also in the district as the guest speaker at a sportsmen's fundraiser tonight in the Backroom at the Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay from 6.30pm. Inquiries regarding the sportsmen's night to Matt Alexander, phone 0427 878 099.
