Harlequin Club Patron - George Smith
The Harbord Harlequins are privileged and proud to have George Smith as our Club Patron. George is our inaugural Patron (since 2004) and has a niece and nephew playing at the Harlequins.
George has a very busy schedule with his commitments to the Brumbies and Wallabies. Whenever time permits George always makes himself available to attend Development Days and the odd match day and is a great hit on Presentation Day where player recognition and participation medals are awarded.
