It’s been a busy month or so for Rugby Union in the College with games against Surfers Paradise Rugby Club, Bond Pirates Rugby Club, Sunshine Coast Grammar School, All Saints Anglican School, and most recently, Lord Byng Secondary School from Vancouver, Canada. The latter team bringing 31 players and four staff over for their biennial tour and being billeted with host families from Somerset College for three nights.

In between, there have been community service events, many trainings, photo shoots and our own Canadian Rugby tour to organise. Alongside that, a potential tour to Japan looms as a likely contender next year to coincide with the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

We have 26 excited Year 11 and 12 boys counting down sleeps until they depart for Vancouver Canada on Good Friday. To follow the tour please join our Facebook site: or our Schoolbox page at:
