The MOB was set up 25 years ago by a number of Melville Rugby Club stalwarts. To this day, the MOB continues to stand by its original mandate set those years ago, which is to offer support to the Melville Premier Men's Rugby team. Our Mission Statement best explains our intentions:
"Our primary focus is to provide financial sponsorship, so the Melville Premier Rugby team has the best opportunity to succeed - This may also include ad-hoc support that we believe will contribute to our teams success. We may also acknowledge other Melville team’s successes and support projects within the Melville Rugby and Sports Club.
The MOB Membership endorse the MOB Executive to administer this work on their behalf."
Who is the MOB Executive?
The MOB Executive is elected annually by the MOB membership at the end of season AGM. They are responsible for administering the work of the MOB over the following season.
