The year 1981 produced plenty of highs for Taree rugby league teams.
Taree Old Bar won a fourth successive Group Three first grade premiership while Taree United won the reserve grade and under 18 titles.
The Taree Old Boys group will mark the successes of the Taree Group Three teams with a reunion of players from the three sides to be held on Saturday (April 10.) This was originally to coincide with the start of the Group Three season, however this has been delayed until May 1. That won't stop the reunion and this will be underway at the Manning Hotel from 1pm this Saturday
Geoff Pensini was fullback for the Old Bar first grade side in 1981 and these days he's a prominent member of the Old Boys group. Here Geoff shares some recollections of Group Three footy from 1981 in a video produced by Scott Calvin. He also outlines plans for Saturday's reunion.
