 Gold Coast Rugby Tour 2015

On Saturday, 4th July, the Under 14s and Under 16s rugby teams both piled onto buses and headed to the airport to kick off our tour to the Gold Coast to play some good hard rugby.

 

The tour was a massive opportunity for us to meet teams from Canberra, Brisbane, South Australia and New Zealand, as well as some local teams. Meeting new teams allowed us to get a good idea of where we are in perspective to other teams around Australia and New Zealand.

Some of the highlights for us as a tour group were when the Under 14s had a cracking start against Brisbane Grammar School and managed to hold on for the win against a much bigger opponent - showing the competition they were a force to be reckoned with.

 

A very different but real highlight for many of us on the tour was when the Under 16s played a Barbarians game with Canberra Grammar School. We were drawn to play Canberra Grammar for the second time in one day, on the last day of the carnival. The four coaches of the two teams split and selected two teams made up of boys from both schools. The game was great fun with Canberra Grammar boys being an excellent bunch of guys to play a Barbarians game with.

During this game Maxim Sotter and Matthew Jackman turned out to be in opposing teams in the same position. Maxim finally got the ball off a play by the fast Canberra halves but he was met quickly by Matthew who grabbed him and headed towards his try line. Maxim was carried 20 metres in a tackle until he gave the ball up, which resulted in Matthew running the ball under the posts for a try.

While on tour the best moments were not necessarily on the footy field but were the adventures we got up to in our down time away from the field. This could be anything from watching Queensland destroy NSW in the State of Origin to playing beach games with other netball and rugby teams on the sands of Broadbeach. It could even have been meeting our new friends from New Zealand in the sauna back at the Sea World resort. Another highlight for some of the boys was at meal times - the buffet breakfast seemed like heaven for some of us and it was great to get together as a tour group each morning to talk about the day ahead.

We also enjoyed the best of the Gold Coast theme parks visiting Sea World, Warner Bros Movie World and Wet’n’Wild. They were a number of ‘firsts’ on the trip which included a couple of first-time flyers and at least one first-time rollercoaster rider. We truly did have some fun times and great experiences.

 The rugby tour was a time of new experiences for us all. Most of us have not had the chance to go on sporting tours before so the past tour was a great chance for us all to get away and relax with a group of mates and to learn a bit about ourselves and even to learn a thing or two about each other. We all returned tired but everyone had a great time.   

 Just to conclude, this tour would not have been able to run so smoothly without the expert guidance of Mr Scott Gardner who did all the initial ground work to make the whole tour happen. Mr Gardner made it fun and relaxed from the minute we got on the bus on Day 1.

 We would also like to thank Mr Patrick Sinclair, Mr Bradley Allen, Mr Geoffrey Seigert, Mr Benjamin Bayliss and Mr Daniel Waldron for looking after us all on and off the field and helping us throughout the tour.

 I also need to thank the All Saints’ College Friends of Rugby who provided financial assistance in providing tour jerseys and clothing as part of their support of the tour. This could not happen without the help of everyone that volunteers on the sideline each week, on the barbecue and in the canteen. Some of these people are current parents, as well as some past parents who remain committed to supporting rugby at All Saints’. Thank you to to all of these people for the money raised to help send us on this amazing experience, particularly Mr Ian Redpath, the President of the Friends of Rugby.

 Finally, we would also like to thank all the parents that may have made sacrifices to send students like us on tour that has given us an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives.

William Siegert and Mr Bradley Allen

Girls Rugby 2015

On June 10th, the Under 16s Girls Rugby team went to Sydney for the State Rugby 7s Titles, as the Central West Representative team. 

Facing a daunting pool group for qualification including Westfield Sports High and St Clare's, the girls came out strong beating Westfield as great start to the day. At the end of the Pool games we had qualified to compete for the NSW Rugby Plate. A 2-2 result saw them through to the final against  and a chance to play for the Plate. A great effort in the final saw the girls come up 4-2  against a strong St Leo’s  side to bring home the silverware. 

The attitude and enthusiasm of the team on the day and throughout all of their training has been commendable. 

My thanks go to Mrs Elizabeth Moller for her support of the team, and toMr  Scott Gardner who stepped in to look after the girls when I was unable to go with them. 

Congratulations All Saints’ Under 16s Girls 7s. NSW Rugby 7s Plate winners.

Mr Patrick Sinclair (Coach)

ASC Rugby @ Canberra Grammar School – 28th March 2015

 

1st XV

 

 

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.
