Inaugural Jersey Calcutta: Bid now and win $$$

Updated: Mar 19

Introducing the Eastern Suburbs Rugby Union Jersey Calcutta.

It's an exciting way to kick off the rugby season and a great way to show your support to the club, while also providing you with the opportunity to earn some impressive winnings.

The 2020 season will see the establishment of the "Jack Baxter" Men's and Roxburgh-Copeland Women's First XV.

The squads will be announced on the day of the first Shute Shield and Jack Scott Cup game of the season, respectively.

At the end of the playing season, including finals, the three jersey numbers who have accumulated the most best and fairest points on both the men and women's side will win cash. See the bidding form below for details.

You start by selecting a jersey number you'd like to bid on, and fill out the form below. We'll provide regular updates on the highest bids leading up to the season kick off, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to be the winning bidder.

The Jersey Calcutta initiative is a fundraising programme run by the club with 60% of funds raised going towards club development in 2020 and 40% going toward the prize pool.
