Ground-Breaking Rugby Tour

And so a ground-breaking St Andrew's College Rugby Tour to the USA is played.

Since the boys and staff left Makhanda on Wednesday, 5 April (19 days ago), the squad have played 10 rugby matches, played at two festivals on two continents, had flight delays and missing baggage, been in hotels and been billeted, been remarkable ambassadors for our school and our country. St Andrew's has made friends in the USA and the group is wiser and tighter than ever before. I’m so proud to have been able to attend the OA North America Branch Dinner with the tour party on 19 April and to have seen 5 matches on tour.

St Andrew’s boys are gritty and funny and resilient and kind… and now they need to get home safely and rest up before the domestic season gets underway.

Thanks to the OA North America Branch for making this tour possible. It’s been remarkable. Thanks to boys and staff. Thanks to the parents who made it possible and a special thanks to those who accompanied the tour.

Safe Travels Home All!
