Welcome to the home of the Rutherglen - Corowa Football and Netball Club.

We are part of the Tallangatta and District Football League and our home is Barkly Park, Rutherglen.


KARL JACKA TO LEAD RUTHERGLEN

Karl Jacka has been appointed senior football coach for 2015 and 2016.

Karl brings a great deal of experience, knowledge and professionalism to our club after being a senior premiership coach at Moulamein, and coaching stints at Henty, Howlong, and most recently as reserves coach at the Wodonga Raiders in 2014, where his team played finals.

Karl officially starts on Wednesday, December 17. Please get down to Barkly Park at 6pm to meet Karl and watch him take his first training session. A barbecue dinner and refreshments will be available afterwards. It is an opportunity to make a great impression on Karl, and show him just how great our club is by having as many people as possible at training.

The process of finding a senior coach has been time consuming and at many times a frustrating task - however right throughout the process we have been determined to make sure we get the right person that can be a long-term benefit to our club. With Karl, we believe we have found that person.

We are looking forward to a successful 2015 at the Rutherglen Football Netball Club.
