Click: 2015 Season at a Glance
ASC Rugby @ Canberra Grammar School – 28th March 2015
The All Saints’ College 1st XV made the long journey down to Canberra Grammar to kick off the 2015 season. The team members were all nervous in anticipation of the game. The players were faced with a much heavier pack of forwards, but our boys were committed and took the game to Canberra Grammar and managed to hold our own.
As expected with any 1sts game, there were errors which cost us a lot of possession. This ultimately led to points been scored against us. We hit back thanks to the efforts of Jack Pople and Marshall Fox of the back of a strong scrum. We were able to even up the score but the Canberra Grammar team was by no means out of the fight and replied by scoring quickly managing to put two more tries on the scoreboard. The All Saints’ boys finished strongly and scored again thanks to Luke Johnstone, some quick foot work and effective line running managed to bring us back into the fight.
The team managed to hold the Canberra Grammar boys out when camped on our own try line for long periods of time but ultimately they got one more on us. Overall, the team played well, were committed as a united group and set an impressive standard for the season to come. With effort at training and with focus on our fundamentals and organisation we are sure that big things will follow in the season to come.
This has been a great start to the season and we have shown that we are a team not to be underestimated, I look forward to playing the rest of the season with this tight knit team who show both determination on the field and uphold the All Saints’ College tradition of schoolboy rugby.
ASC Under 16s
The Under 16s started their season in an impressive manner with a close but impressive win over the Canberra Grammar School opposition. The match was a tight contest with the ASC forwards laying a good platform and forward momentum for others to run off. The game was tight until the end with David Cant converting a try to win the game 26-24.
ASC Under 14s
The Under 14s continued their good form and successes from last year with a convincing win over the Canberra Grammar opposition. It was a great team effort winning 33-17 and a good reward for those boys who travelled on the day. It was a nice winning way to farewell Austin Miller as he is leaving ASC - he has been an important team member.
ASC Under 13s
In their first outing representing All Saints’ College on the rugby field the Under 13s treated the spectators with a good display and showed promise and potential for wins in the future. They lost their match 5-3, but provided great entertainment showing their enthusiasm and enjoyment of the game, scoring tries and celebrating their achievements. It was first ASC rugby bus trip to a match for the Under 13s, and a first time in Canberra, seeing Parliament House for some also. Everyone enjoyed the day.
