It is with deep regret I announce the passing away last Thursday evening of club player and personality Todd Stawecki.
He signed for Rodillians from Castleford in August 1997 and quickly became a fixture in the first team. On the field he was known for his power and strength in the scrum and line. He was part of the squad of 2003/04 that won the Yorkshire 5 League Trophy and Yorkshire Silver Trophy and also the 2015/16 squad that won the Yorkshire 5 League (again) and the Yorkshire 5 Cup.
A career that transcends two decades has its ups and downs but Todd was always a player who galvanised teams he played in.
Todd was well known and liked across clubs. Aireborough, Ossett, Leeds Corinthians, Wibsey and Leeds Modernians (that we are aware of) all paid their respects last Saturday (15/10) with silences or a minutes clapping, while former Wales Captain and British and Irish Lions veteran Colin Charvis raised a glass in memory of Todd at a function at Morley RUFC.
Todd is survived by his wife Wendy and sons Michael and Jamie.
The funeral will be held on Wednesday the 26th of October at Wakefield Crematorium (Kettlethorpe) at 1.40pm followed by refreshments at Stanley Rodillians RUFC, Lee Moor Road, Stanley, WF3 4EF.
Stanley Rodillians are based in north Wakefield and the first team will be playing in the Yorkshire 4 league in the 2016-2017 season.
