After spending seven long weeks injured on the sidelines, Deniliquin Rams B grade captain Paula Parsons finally played her 300th senior game on Saturday.
The jubilant occasion was marked with a compelling 59-29 victory at home against Rumbalara.
The win kept the side, which includes Parsons’ daughters Elle and Tess, well and truly in the hunt for a finals berth.
Parsons started with the Rams in 1985 and is only the second player to reach 300 games at the club behind Jodie Sefton (334).
Her 174 A grade games with the Rams have returned multiple premierships, including one over Finley in the late 1980s and back-to-back flags in 2002-03.
Parsons was awarded life membership with the Rams after playing her 200th senior game in 2009.
A bonafide club legend, Parsons’ affiliation with the Rams is a family affair, with husband Gary coaching the senior football side to five premierships (2001-04, 2011) and their four children being all members of the club.
Their youngest daughter Maggie plays netball for the Rams’ under-17s, and son Tom has played all of his football at the club.
