Rugby: St Andrew’s College vs Queen’s College

On Saturday 10 June St Andrew's College hosted Queen’s College. This is always a close encounter with both schools priding themselves on the sports field. Queen’s controlled the junior B section and got wins in the U14B, U15B&C and U16B&C games.

It was a different story on Lower field, the U14A team put in another solid performance and had a chance at the end to win. Unfortunately, time ran out for our boys, and they lost 19–22. Our U15As continued their successful season and played some exciting rugby winning their game 15–5. The U16 Hawks continued from last week with another win 22-15 — this teams’ continued growth is impressive. 

Our seniors came away with a clean sweep of victories — this hasn’t happened often – well done to all involved. Our 6ths won 32-10, 5ths won 32-0 and our 4ths won 24–15. The 3rds had a tough battle on their hands and the game was in the balance at half time 14-7 with the final score being 35-25 to College, with Nicholas Franklin enjoying a good day with 4 from 4 conversions. A lasting memory though will definitely be Bertram White scoring three tries and converting his last try to make a personal contribution of 17 points.

Our 2nds had a very good game against a solid Queen’s second team. Scott Miles contributed well and scored 13 of his teams’ points. The final score being 33-12. 

The 1st team were always in for a battle against a highly ranked Queen’s team. The team struggled to get going and the game was a stop start affair. A very good individual try by Jacques Cloete and a penalty by Dan Hickey gave the boys a 10-6 half time lead. Queen’s came out firing in the second half and were soon 11–10 up. This remained right up until the very end when College was awarded a penalty at fulltime. The decision was taken to go for poles and Dan Hickey converted ensuring the win with a final score of 13–11 in this thrilling schoolboy rugby encounter.

Thank you to all the supporters, the boys appreciate it. Keep on keeping on.
