Representative Honours

Club History snapshot

Adamstown Rosebud’s list of representatives is almost as weighty a tome as the club’s roll of championship wins. While its honour board, proudly displayed since 1980 in the licensed premises, carries the names of those who reached the pinnacle of their chosen code (Australian representation) when still members of an Adamstown team, the club has been associated with many, many more.
