30 May Southwell Smiles
Premiership winning coach Glen Christini left Queanbeyan to enjoy the takeaway town of Erindale leaving Wayne Southwell to take up the first-grade coaching position after making a great contribution as assistant coach.
In 2010, the season ended in all smiles for Southwell with a John I. Dent cup win over Tuggers 30-28, the same score of 2019 when the Whites were beaten on the bell.
Half Nic White kicked the winning penalty as time ticked over in 2010. Robbie Coleman was named man of the match.
The chainsaw was banned so the Queanbeyan supporters had to resort to blowing the horns.
It was a good year with the colts winning their premiership over Gungahlin 37-0 and reserve grade falling at the end to Wests 25-24.
Both Nic White and Robbie Coleman were signed by the Brumbies for the 2011 season with both playing Australian Under 20’s at the Junior World Cup.
Lewis Holland began his representative career with selection in the Australian Schoolboys.
Another highlight of the season was Matt Hirst’s 150 first grade game. Unfortunately, Robbie Beath missed the grand final with injury.
