Some may play 200 games, some may play for 200 minutes, but our club has a person who last weekend coached his 200th win as a Coach. Congratulations must go to 2nd Grade leader Ray Hudd who reached that feat on Saturday, Ray has coached 254 games for SUFC. For 200 wins, 47 losses (some were grand finals) and 7 draws. ‘Huddy’s’ success rate is currently 81.50 %. Not bad, and a terrific person as well.
