The Chinchilla Junior Bulldogs are a growing pack, something that makes them the envy of country junior rugby league.

The juniors have added another 40 players to their ranks this season with 191 registered youngsters eager to grow and develop into fine young Bulldogs – ensuring the future success of rugby league in Chinchilla.

Club president Tamara Pitt said while many country junior rugby league clubs were struggling, there were not many that could field two teams for every grade.

“We have 26 or 27 U6s. The numbers are unbelievable. We have 48 U10s,” she said.

The new chairman of the Goldfields Professionals Network says he wants to use the non-profit organisation to make Kalgoorlie a place where people want to settle down.

Adam Rizzi, business development manager at Ausco Modular, recently became the new chairman of the GPN in February after returning to live in Kalgoorlie.

Having worked in Kalgoorlie, Karratha and Perth, he said Kalgoorlie had the lifestyle he wanted.

A couple of blokes and a truckload of ply wood is all it takes to raise money for a good cause.

Black Dog Institute, Lifeline and the St Vincent de Paul Society shared in almost $7000 which was donated by Peter Smiles from Dalby Home Hardware last week.

Mr Smiles sold more than 1000 sheets of ply wood after it arrived at the hardware store on a semi-trailer from Weipa.

"Ausco had a lot of ply and wondered if we could take it off their hands,” he said.
