Nerang Old Boys (NOBS)

The original ‘current’ team from the first NOBs game
After a horrific road accident in 1993 that ended the promising career of Nerang Eagle Danny Rowe, the club arranged a special game between a team of current players against a team of Nerang Old Boys, that were suitably named the NOBs from that point on.

The NOBs and the matches were originally established to raise funds to assist in Danny’s recovery, and have now become a stable part of the Nerang club’s culture and make-up.
