Touring success for rugby teams
Date: April 23, 2015 Posted by: Dale Alderson
On the back of a bumper preseason, the Sunshine Coast Grammar Rugby under 12 and 1st XV teams enjoyed an action packed Easter Holiday break as they competed in two separate rugby carnivals.
The Grammar U12 rugby ream travelled to Armidale for the annual U12’s TAS competition. This is the 10th year the school has been involved in this carnival.
Teacher in charge of rugby at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mr Dan Robotham congratulated the team on representing the school with pride and passion finishing in a very credible third place out of 42 touring teams.
The boys played Ambrose Tracey College (formally Nudgee Junior) in the third v fourth playoff winning 27-14. Their campaign included a victory over The Southport School and defeats from the very strong Sydney sides Scots College and the Gordon Highlanders.
The Grammar Rugby 1st XV team undertook a five day training camp which concluded in the St Peter’s Rugby Carnival at Indooroopilly.
The team finished Carnival Champions defeating host school St Peter’s in the final. The team won 5 from 5 matches only conceding 7 points. The boys defeated Iona College, John Paul College, Ormiston College, St Johns Anglican and St Peters Lutheran College.
“We are incredibly proud of our players, it has been over 12 months since the Grammar 1st XV have lost a game and the side has only lost one match in two years by a 1 point margin. All boys were great ambassadors to the school,” said Mr Robotham.
