Lions win Andy Warner Memorial Trophy (2012)
Ex-Wallabies prop Matt Dunning led the Hornsby Lions on to a damp Waitara Oval on Saturday afternoon playing in the Clark Cup for the 'Andy Warner Memorial Trophy'. The Lions showed Matt Dunning the best of suburban rugby - a win in the wet at home. Waitara Oval was a quagmire for the “Back to Hornsby” match as the home side downed Epping 24-5 for their second win in a row.
“It was a good win and we deserved to win by more - Hornsby were definitely the best side out there,” said Dunning. “The cricket pitch was a swamp.”
Andy Warner, a 35 year old policeman, died suddenly after he was tackled during a game in 2002. Each year on Back to Hornsby Day the Lions pause to remember Andy and others who have passed. This was the tenth anniversary of Andy's passing as well as the first Back To Hornsby Day following the shock death of Lions stalwart Warren Southwell late last year. The crowd joined for a minutes silence in memory of all their absent friends before the First Grade match.
The match was preceeded by a Golden Oldies match, the 'Hornsby Busted Lions' against the Wahroonga Toothless Tigers.
