The charity match will be followed by a function at Armidale City Bowling Club.

Armidale’s rugby league team annually supports a local charity and Rams’ publicity officer Annette Ridley said the club is glad to be helping the Yeoman’s Family Appeal this year.

“The Yeoman family lost their son Sebastian earlier this year in a drowing accident and we want to give back to our community and help the Yeoman family out,” she said.

The charity day will see all grades of the Armidale Rams take to the field against the Tingha Tigers.

This game is a must-win match for the Rams first grade in order to secure their berth in the semi finals of the group 19 competition.

Rams’ first grade will play in a limited edition charity jersey and they will all will be auctioned off.

In addition to the Rams’ jerseys, auction items for tomorrow night include a West Tigers 2005 framed premiership jersey and Manly, Parramatta and Titans jerseys.

“There’s a number of items that we are going to auction off and the NRL jerseys are just some of them,” Ridley said.

“We have had an overwhelming amount of support from a number of local people and organisations who have donated items all in the name of this wonderful cause,” she said.

Ridley has encouraged the Armidale community to attend tomorrow’s game and the charity auction that follows.

“It will be a great afternoon of footy, followed by a great event in support of this great cause.”

“The involvement of Armidale in supporting this cause will be great to see tomorrow.”

Entry into tomorrow’s game is free, with the Armidale Rams women’s oztag side taking the field at 11am at Rugby League Park.
