Wallaby legend Mark Ella coached members of the Sydney Convicts at Queen's Park last week, ahead of the Bondi 10s pre-season rugby tournament this weekend.
It's just one of a number of events and milestones the gay rugby club will be marking this Mardi Gras season, including celebrating the tenth anniversary of their first game of rugby on the day of the Mardi Gras Parade.
"The club is gearing up for a massive year of rugby and we are recruiting players at Fair Day to help us field three strong teams and in August defend the Bingham Cup on home turf," said Convicts president David Whittaker.
