The Gold Coast continued its run of great weather by providing another unusually warm autumn day to play Rugby. Unfortunately, King's came to Wyangan under-manned and a little battered and bruised having played All Saints and Saint Stephen's in the previous rounds.
This meant they could only field 13 players and the Somerset 1st XV had to match them. Consequently, the game was a one-sided affair with the 1st XV running tries in at will.
The focus was to utilise the match as a platform for an expected tough game the following week against Saint Stephen's College, however, that is a little easier said than done when players found space on offer regularly. The 1st XV ran in 8 tries all together before King's invoked the APS ‘Mercy Rule’ and conceded 15 minutes before the completion of the match.
The final score line of 52-0 is not the ideal preparation leading into this week’s match against a physical Saint Stephen's, who are yet to concede a point against them in this campaign. Try scorers were Kale Brenssell (2), Craig Hales, Kai George, Lewis Ioannou, Tadhg Mooney, Griffin Pugh and Harris Franzmann. Kai George kicked an impressive 6 out of 8 conversions. Lewis Ioannou and Kale Brenssell were named joint Man of the Match, both boys having strong matches.
