Australian Schools Rugby News : October 2010
nswccc selection carnival 13 The NSWCCC rugby union selection carnival was held at university of Western Sydney Hawkesbury, richmond on the 25th and 26th of may 2010 with over 300 students attending the campus in an effort to win selection in the NSWCCC representative teams to contest the NSW All schools selections trials held at Knox Grammar. The NSWCCC u16 division was contested over a 2 day format which saw teams vying for the playoffs on day two which would determine overall standings. The metropolitan Catholic Colleges team (led by coach mark Strong – Patrician Brothers Blacktown) proved very strong and ran out eventual winners. The 2010 surprise packets were Bathurst diocese who made the final and pushed mCS every step of the way. However, perhaps the most enduring memory of the 2010 u16 tournament would be CBSA’s reinvention of the driving maul which they used in a most damaging manner to dispose of lismore diocese and maitland/ Newcastle diocese. In the under 18 division Broken Bay diocese proved themselves to be the best team by soundly defeating metropolitan Catholic Schools, Wollongong/South Sydney diocese, and maitland/ Newcastle diocese. However, lismore diocese (led by their vastly experienced coach mick merlino) proved once again that the Country teams can never be under estimated by winning all their three matches and only lose to Broken Bay on a “count back” of points for and against. One of the most encouraging aspects of the 2010 Carnival was the performance of the mCC/Parramatta teams in the u18’s and u16 divisions which saw many boys from our previously unrepresented Catholic Schools in the Western Suburbs attend the carnival. At the end of the two days NSWCCC selected two strong teams to attend the NSW All Schools trials and the under 16’s and under 18’s once again present strong opposition for all comers. Another high point for NSWCCC in 2010 was the Schoolboy International against Fijian Schools played at St marys rugby league Stadium, St marys in September. – chris Hicks, nSwccc rugby This is a serious r ugby camp for serious, aspiring r ugby players. The content of the sessions is precise and vital for ma ximum performance. Players will be surprised, on the one hand, at the simplicity of the tasks and, on the other, in the huge improvements in their per for mance . Be assured that elite athletic ability is not a fundamental requirement; r ugby is a game for all body types! My belief is that “practice does NOT make perfect, only PERFECT practice makes perfect .” The sessions will reflect this, plus our insistence that every session will culminate in the game application of the learned techniques . Our inclusion of the evening review sessions will develop understanding; per for mance without understanding will limit ongoing development. Coach Education nights on Tuesday and Wednesday allow the attendance of additional coaches, who have not had the time for the full camp, to develop their knowledge and coaching skills. bob dwyer international rugby academy Super Sports Centre, Runaway Bay Camp 18–22 April 2011 A Typical Day at the Bob Dwyer Rugby Camp The following time - table is typical of each of the five camp days, with the exception of Monday, where Session 1 will be omitted to allow for inter state ar rivals, and Friday, where only Sessions 1 and 2 will be conducted.
