Sunshine Coast Grammar Rugby triumphs at prestigious Rugby Union Grand Finals

In a remarkable display of sporting prowess and sheer dominance, Sunshine Coast Grammar Rugby achieved a great feat by sending five teams to the prestigious Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools Rugby Union Grand Finals and emerged victorious in four categories.

With an unstoppable combination of talent, strategy and determination, Sunshine Coast Grammar Rugby athletes showcased their unrivaled excellence on the rugby field last night at Sunshine Coast Stadium in front of proud friends and family members.

Our Year 7 Division 1 Team defeated Good Shepherd Lutheran College to win the John Edwards Shield.

The Year 8 Division 1 Team went down narrowly to Siena Catholic College in extra time.

The Year 10 Division 1 Team defeated Siena Catholic College to win the Dave Glassock Shield.

The Second XV defeated Matthew Flinders Anglican College to win the Jim Lucey Shield for the second consecutive year.

The First XV defeated Matthew Flinders Anglican College to win the Garth Hunt Shield for the sixth consecutive year.

Closing the remarkable chapter of success, our First XV soared high above the competition. The team’s unwavering belief in themselves, coupled with a rich tradition of excellence, propelled them to victory.

The Club’s First XV has won the Premiership 11 times in the last 12 years, which is more than any other school in the history of the competition, which dates back to 1988.

The victories serve as a testament to the exceptional coaching and unwavering support from our Rugby Academy and Support Group. The Academy has supported many of its players to go on to represent higher levels in the code, including Queensland Reds, Melbourne Rebels, ACT Brumbies and the Wallabies.

For some of our senior players, the Grand Final was the last time that they will represent Grammar in rugby, with many taking with them a lifetime of memories.

“The senior players are wonderful role models and are inspiring generations of future athletes to chase their dreams and leave an indelible mark on the rugby field,” said Head of Rugby, Troy Atkins.
