USA Rugby Tour, scoring well constructed tries against Rye

After a couple of days based in and around New York, where the squad had an opportunity to do some sightseeing, we made our way to Rye High School yesterday afternoon for a match against their 1st XV.

College started well and put early pressure on the local team, scoring some well-constructed tries against an opposition that certainly never backed down. Rye hit back with a try of their own after the halftime break, but College finished the game strongly, ending as 59 - 7 winners. Karabo van Heerden was the standout player for St Andrew’s College and was awarded a gift from the Rye coaches. The squad then made their way to the Belle Haven Club in Long Island, where they attended the North American Branch of the OA Club old boys function.

Again, the support, and hospitality of the OAs and locals has been second to none and we are extremely appreciative of the opportunity that has been given to the squad.

Today we are currently on the road to Washington DC for our final stop, where we will be playing in the Gonzaga High Schools festival over the coming weekend.
