Do you know someone who should be recognised for their extraordinary contributions to Tasmanian Rugby?

The Tasmanian Rugby Union is currently seeking nominations for Life Memberships.

Life Membership is awarded in recognition of a past or current member who has:

a) made an extraordinary contribution to Tasmanian Rugby over an extended period of time, that is above and beyond what may be expected of any member or;

b) has reached/sustained a high level of achievement within Tasmanian Rugby.

"We have an incredible rugby family here in Tasmania and it's time to highlight those who have gone above and beyond for their club and community," TRU president Ebony Altimira said.

"In our 90th anniversary year, it's especially important to recognise the efforts of long-serving Tasmanian rugby figures."

If you wish to nominate an individual for a Life Membership, please email admin@tas.rugby with a letter outlining the contributions of your nominee to Tasmanian Rugby Union. 

Any new life memberships will be announced at the TRU AGM on Feb 26th.
