Many schools have inbound visitors such as Churchie Brisbane, Daramalen College ACT, Trinity Grammar Sydney, St Andrew’s Sydney, Masada College Sydney, Marist College Canberra, to name a few. Melbourne schools are touring to all points in Australia and overseas as well Teams U16, 1st ACT ACT SCHOOLS RUGBY had a successful year in 2008. Once again we hosted the Division I Championships in Canberra and this ran smoothly. Our thanks to Vikings Rugby Club for their continued support and special thanks to Denzil Fox for his organisation. The ACT Schools Team performed reasonably well in all matches but on each occasion relaxed towards the end of the games. An important lesson was learnt this year and we feel that in the years to come the ACT will be more than competitive to the other Division I sides. Patrons: Dr Bob Smethills Mr Bill Stefaniac President: Mr Max Green ARFSU Delegates: Phil Hawke, Josh Vaughan, Andy Lofthouse Vice President: Mr Pat Langtry Secretary: Mr Phil Hawke highlighted by Carey Grammar, Brighton Grammar, Scotch College and Melbourne Grammar to NZ and the Tri-Annual VSRU U16 world tour this year visits the UK, Ireland and United Arab Emirates in November and December. Our continued excellent working relationship with the VRU will cement the work done on building a great foundation for all the schools community and their officers will spend much time on the development programs of the VSRU and their own programs in target schools which should further enhance the position of rugby in the state of Victoria at schools level. The critical shortage of referees will again be felt by schools that are endeavouring to recruit more but a more direct and more substantial payment scheme is hoped to attract more to the cause. 12 Opens Management: Denzil Fox (Manager) Josh Vaughan (Coach) Craig Leseburg (Asst.
