New Rugby Union President – Lord Somers Camp and Power House


New Rugby Union President

After several years leading the club through some difficult times, David Short has made the difficult decision to stand down at the Power House Rugby Union Club President.

David says: “I have an exciting, but demanding, 12 months coming up with my business and want to make sure the right person is able to carry the club forward.”

“I am delighted to say we have exactly that person! Josh Blanksby is a former player and 3 time Premiership champion with the club. He has remained a strong supporter of the club and feels he wants to take on a bigger role in driving the club’s success. He is the CEO of Melbourne Racing Club and so had incredibly high commercial acumen as well as strong connections to local and federal government. He is the perfect person to gain traction in the clubhouse project where I have failed and understands the club and its culture.”

We all wish Josh the best of success and if anyone is looking to join a Rugby Union club, look no further and join the success that is Power House Rugby Union Club in 2023.
