Q&A With NRC Tournament Director – Milo Arona

Here is your exclusive access to behind the scenes of Western Sydney Rams. We sat down with Milo Arona (NRC Tournament Director) for a quick question and answer!

 

  1. How are you enjoying being back at the Rams?
    Administratively, it’s been hard work, so I’m not enjoying that side of Rams too much. I’m loving the rugby atmosphere at Team Rams. Working alongside committed, dedicated and loyal rugby heads for the West is very exciting. I enjoy meeting new people and reconnecting with others. Over the last couple of months, I’ve been privileged to meet and work with three out of the four General Managers of our feeder clubs to Rams: Penrith, West Harbour and Parramatta. I Unfortunately missed Southern Districts (SD) – apologies SD, Amanda Badet, Geoff Threlefo and Michael Bell. I value your support and contributions towards our “ONE FAMILY” 2016 Team Rams – Thank you.
  2. What can supporters look forward to on game day?
    I’m aiming for a great game day experience for everyone. From the infants, to seniors, we’re all leaving the park saying, “I’m coming back”. This year we’ve aligned closely with ARU and they have a couple of great game day activations that we’ll also implement at our three home games. There are four man jersey and free picnic rugs to giveaway. In addition, Rams have also aligned with four of our Pacific Nations, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa and New Zealand Maori, showcasing their talented pool of players abroad and in New South Wales. We’ll also have fun activities for the kids and live local entertainers from the west.
    Watch this space, we may have a special late addition for our first home game on September 10 – it will be an “Extravagant Rugby Festivity”.
  3. The last round is Pacific Islander round. What a great way to celebrate rugby in the west!
    It’s going to be epic! One of a kind. Australian statistics say Western Sydney has the largest pacific population in Australia and what better way to celebrate rugby with four pacific nations that see Rugby as their Nations Sport. All in support by ARU and Western Sydney Rams. There will be food stalls, live entertainment and tribal wars (Haka’s) in action from each of the four Nations. Definitely a great way to celebrate Rugby in the west!
  4. If I want to be a volunteer worker at the games, how can I apply?
    We welcome volunteers with open arms. Leave your name and contact details on Western Sydney Rams Facebook page or email me on maherauarona@ramsrugby.com.au
