The 2014 WARL Past Players and Supporters re-union day was held at the Fremantle Roosters clubrooms and was a huge success.

There was over 150 people in attendance that enjoyed the day and caught up with old friends. They celebrated the 1976 Fremantle Roosters commemorative side, as well as a 50 year anniversary of Applecross winning their first ever A grade premiership, and finally the induction of Peter Cumins and Mark Williams into the Hall of Fame.

Congratulations to all award recipients, and thank you to the Past Players and Supporters Association along with the Fremantle Roosters for hosting a terrific event.
