The Extra Importance of this Year’s Craig Rimmer Carnival

Today is the Craig Rimmer Carnival, a unique day as it is a carnival that operates under special rules, being handicap based, allowing all teams depending on their status on the junior competition ladder to receive a points start from each respective competition leader. The gala day is named after Craig Rimmer, a promising Peakhurst Hawks JRLFC junior who died in tragic circumstances.

Recently, Craig’s mother sadly passed away with the funeral being a few days ago. Although this day celebrates rugby league being the game for all, giving everyone an opportunity and bringing our juniors together on the same day, it is paramount to step back, reflect and appreciate everyone around us and the effect and impact that everyone has on each other.

Today, all players and officials in The Craig Rimmer Memorial Cup will wear armbands to show our respect and we will hold a minute’s silence during the final game.

Enjoy the day!
