Ben Roberts: A Fond Farewell to a Leader Amongst Men

By Grant Beuzeval

One of the good guys

“He was our captain from the day he arrived and his is natural leadership on and off the field has been amazing and will be sadly missed by us all. ” Richard Cooke

Words from Richard Cooke...

Arriving here in 2011, Ben Roberts leaves us this week, with his CV bolstered by a wife, a baby on the way, 2 premiership league winners medals, 4 Grand Final appearances, nearly 100 club appearances, 15 caps for Hong Kong, national Captaincy and the respect of our Club and the entire rugby community.

He was our captain from the day he arrived and his is natural leadership on and off the field has been amazing and will be sadly missed by us all.

His leadership has been exemplified by him playing through with an injured shoulder for the last year, a true club man.

He has also given a huge amount to the youth and mini sections, where he has provided great leadership to the parents and coaches, and inspiration to the kids.

Ben and Rhi leave with the best wishes of everyone at the club and we hope that you will stay in contact and we will bring your family back to see us in the near future.
