Dr MARJORIE O'NEILL (Coogee) (21:12:38): I recognise the incredible contribution of Adam Freier, who is a retiring great of the Randwick District Rugby Union Football Club. After four decades as a galloping green, Adam retired from rugby this year, with his boots and the number two jersey being very hard to fill. Adam has been playing first grade at the Wicks since the late nineties, when he was plucked from obscurity by Eddie Jones and given a Brumbies contract. Adam went on to play for the Waratahs and the Rebels, as well as having 25 caps for the Wallabies. Adam retired from professional rugby eight years ago and returned to the Galloping Greens in 2015. This year he played Shute Shield at the ripe old age of 40. Adam is a fierce competitor and has been a great mentor to generations of players at Randwick, having represented the Wicks in finals campaigns across four decades. I thank Adam for his incredible contribution to the Randwick rugby union club and wish him all the best for his future. Up the Wicks!
