Congratulations to our Under 12 Rugby team who played a tough, hard-fought match against the Sunshine Coast Grammar School last Wednesday. It was a close encounter with our young forwards really matching it with their opposition. We lost the match, however, the boys can hold their heads high with the effort and commitment they showed throughout the game. Congratulations to Patrick Sowerby who was awarded player of the match.

The same team have also secured their spot at the upcoming TAS Rugby tournament. We leave for the tournament on Friday 8 April and will play five games over the weekend from clubs and schools across country New South Wales and Queensland.
