Ben, one of the Club’s most dedicated players has been a key member of SUFC since 2013, having played 86 games for the Club, of which 48 are in 1st Grade, including the memorable 2019 Shute Shield Grand Final. He was the Club Captain in 2018 which saw us claim the Club Championship for a 15th consecutive year and win the Shute Shield for the first time since 2013. He notched up his 500 Club points earlier this season with a try and 5 conversions against Randwick.  

Hughesie will be in familiar terroritory with SUFC’s former Head Coach at the helm of the Japanese side. Hughesie will be missed by all but we wish him all the best on his new venture.
