MEDICAL ROOM

Not only do we have Central Hunter Sports Medicine sports injury specialist Mick ‘Punchy’ Sager with us at every training session and game (did someone say legend?), we also have a fully equipped MEDICAL ROOM!

Kitted out with:

  • 2 x treatment tables
  • 2 x exercise bikes
  • 2 x treadmills
  • a rowing machine
  • various rehab equipment including foam rollers, kettle bells, skipping ropes, power ropes, free weights and resistance bands
  • strapping tape (enough to stick our 1st Grade ream to the roof for a week)
  • microwave, hydration fridge, deep chest freezer and protein powder.

It is also equipped with some of the best therapists in the Hunter region #lucky as we partner with Mitchell Physiotherapy too!

And it’s not just used for game days either! Our medical room is used for safe and private injured player assessments, pre and post-game rub downs and strapping, PLUS injury assessments!

ICE BATHS

It’s cool to be cold! To help our players with post-game recovery, we have 2 large ice baths located in our changerooms.

Cold therapy has the potential to immediately reduce swelling and flush the lactic acid out of your system (as it can build up while you exercise and play rugby like an absolute beast!) while also ensuring when you warm back up, plenty of oxygenated blood returns to your muscles.

A simple 3 minutes in an ice bath can make a BIG difference to your recovery and we only want the best for our players!

CANTEEN

The Canteen is open every Saturday during the junior and senior playing season.

Catering to young and old, it serves a range of yummy hot and cold food, drinks, fruit, lollies, chips, and other snacks.

Naturally, you can order freshly made egg and bacon rolls and steak sandwiches!

Full eftpos is available.

LONG BLACK CAFE

The Long Black Cafe is open from 7am to 12.30pm every Saturday during the junior playing season.

Staffed by qualified baristas, the cafe proudly serves Ambrose Coffee, a local Maitland region coffee company.

All coffee and tea connoisseurs are catered for with a range of specialty milks available.

A Long Black coffee pairs perfectly with a bacon and egg roll to cheer on your junior rugby star on a Saturday morning!

GYM

Being fit and fast while having fun is what MRC is all about! Our gym is managed by the team from Central Hunter Sports Medicine to help all our athletes reach peak physical conditioning so we can play our best. Our focus is speed, strength and agility which we tailor to individuals based on their position on the paddock! What a service! We run 2 sessions of strength and conditioning per week on Monday & Wednesdays from 4-5pm for all members aged 14 years old and older. For further details contact Mick from CHSM on 0411 288 926.

PARENTS ROOM

Being a family club, we want to make sure everyone is comfortable at MRC, especially when you bring your newest MRC family members to Marcellin Park! So we made a parents room.  It can get chilly outside watching winter games, and feeding/changing can be a bit troublesome – so we hope our parents room makes life a little easier for you!
Located in the upstairs clubhouse, we have:
– a feeding chair
– a change table
– 2 soft change table mattresses
– disposable baby wipes
– disposable change mats
– small areas with books to entertain child #1 while feeding child #2
– microwave in the canteen to warm up food
