Australian Schools Rugby News : March 2010
8 schools players with interesting backgrounds who have worn the Australian Seven’s jersey in tournament play this year. Clinton Sills, a product of Scot’s College in Sydney, represented multiple schoolboy teams over a two year period including Lloyd McDermott and Combined States in 2007 and NSW and Australia A in 2008. Zach Holmes, from Aquinas College in Perth, played alongside current Western Force winger Dane Haylett- Petty for WA Schools at the Division II Schools Championships in 2007 before starting at fly-half for the Combined States team at the Division I Championships the same year. As can be seen from the above breakdown, apart from the youth element, the other feature that stands out is the diverse backgrounds of where the players have come from in recent years. In terms of where they played their schoolboy rugby, with four Queenslanders, three New South Welshmen and one each from the ACT, Victoria and WA, the roots of the game continue to spread far and wide across Australia. www.southern-skies.org rugby girls hockey football netball touch football Come to Brisbane for a truly international sporting and cultural experience 5th - 9th July 2010 Boys Rugby Under 16 & 18 Youth Teams Primed for 13th Annual Southern Skies Tournament BRISBANE is once again gearing up to host the annual Southern Skies Tournament in the July school holidays.
