On Thursday March 12 Somerset College participated in the Schools 5 Cup. This Football Tournament for Year 7s took place at Goals Australia.

During the first week of holiday break Rhian Stowers, Lewis Pye, Charles Pye and Luka Lewis all competed at the Queensland Schoolboy trials at Ballymore. Unfortunately, Lewis injured an AC joint prior to the tournament which ruled him out of selection for Queensland.
However, Luka, Rhian and Charles all trialled really well in what is a very competitive selection process-up against 80 of the best Rugby players in the state. At the completion of the trials two Queensland teams were announced to trial for the Australian Schoolboy team (held in Sydney on the last week of the holiday break).
Rhian Stowers was successful in being selected for the ‘Queensland 1’ team. Unfortunately, at the Australian Schoolboys trials, Rhian missed out on selection but nonetheless an outstanding achievement given the nature of the schools and talent he was up against with the majority of the Australian Schoolboy team coming from elite Grammar Schools with enormous rugby profiles. Well done Charles, Lewis, Luka and Rhian!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
