Wondai rugby league players from the past bonded with current Wolves in a moving ceremony at Wondai Sportsground last Saturday.
The reunion was organised to mark the 51st anniversary of the opening of the Wolves’ clubhouse.
(It was to be a 50th celebration last year, but like just about everything else was postponed due to COVID.)
Wondai veterans who turned up for the day included Des Kemp, Gavin Potter, Scott Holding, David Anderson, Liam Duggan, John Schofield, Skippy Exelby, Michael Hedges, Frank Ramke, Alan Shooter, Peter Keyes, Col Ramke, Michael Close, Ross Goodhew, Danny Radunz, Paul Cooper, Mark Hayden, Peter Howlett, Rob Hansen and Ashley Newson.
The veterans were handed a 2021 Wondai jersey approximately matching their former field positions which they then presented to the current Wondai Wolves’ players after sharing memories at the microphone with the crowd.
Memorabilia from the Wondai-Proston club’s proud history was on display all day in the clubhouse.
Former players returned from across Queensland for the event, and to watch two A Grade South Burnett games played later in the afternoon.
