More Rugby Success

The season just keeps getting better. Last Saturday saw the 1st XV travel to Wellington where they defeated St Pat's Town in a competitive encounter 15 to 12. Following the after match the boys hopped back on the bus and traveled home so that they could play Clifton U20's on Sunday. The quick turnaround did not seem to phase the players as they dominated the semi final 48 to 6.

Five of our players then represented the college at the Hurricanes coaching school in Palmerston North this week. Good news today that Scott Barrett and Teihorangi Walden have made the Hurricanes Secondary School side. It seems Jade Fleming was most unlucky to miss out, breaking his hand during the trials, while both Andrew Trolove and Zac Power where not far from selection.

The season continues with the 1st XV playing the final of the TRFU  U20 competition at The Hub in Hawera. The game kicks off at 1 pm on the main ground with the local Southern U20 team sure to prove solid opposition for the team.

Come next Sunday there will be a few guys looking for a rest!
