Robert McDowall – How I Joined The Shark Side

Name: Robert McDowall

Age: 30

Where do you live: Pollokshaws

How did you hear about the Sharks? – Browsing through Instagram

What gave you the idea to come along for your first training session? – I’d been looking for a new sport to do alongside American Football

Why do you keep coming back, what do you enjoy the most? – There’s a great culture at the team. Friendly and helpful without losing that competitiveness.

If you were to speak to someone unsure whether they should come along what would you tell them? – Try it out and see. There’s a place for everyone of every size, shape or fitness level.


Your first month at the club is completely free and all you would need to start is a pair of football boots, Shorts/T-Shirt and a keen attitude to give Aussie Rules a try!

Training and games are held at GHA Rugby Club, for more info please contact us –
