This scholarship is being established by the University of Newcastle Rugby Union Club (UONRUC) to honour the memory of Lance Coburn and his contributions to the University as a graduate and in particular his achievements as a member of the UONRUC.
Lance Coburn came to the UON in 1964 and enrolled in a BA of Commerce. He was an outstanding student as his results attest. During his time at the UON he demonstrated outstanding skills as a full back for the University Rugby Union team. As a result he was selected on Representative teams including the Newcastle Rugby Team and NSW Country Rugby Team.
Lance commenced working for BHP in the late 1960's as a commercial trainee and went on to have a career of about 40 years with the company in very senior commercial and general manager areas.
Lance was highly respected for his integrity, concern for others and his leadership.
