Sports Report, 5 May 21
The 2021 junior rugby season kicked off on Saturday, with both the U14 and U18 Radford teams playing at home. The U14 boys were first to play and put on an extremely positive performance against a strong Vikings team. There was great school spirit on display as the U18 boys and parents cheered the U14s onto the field and throughout the match. The team came away 22 – 17 winners, starting the season off in the best possible way.
Following the lead of the first game, the U18 ran out onto the field cheered on by a crowd of our junior team, parents, teachers and supporters. The boys were dominant from the get go, producing a 9 try to 2 performance against Marist Blue. Both Ethan Robards and Matthew Rogalewicz scored a double, while Hamish Baird lead from the front scoring 3 tries and slotting four successful conversions.
It was a great atmosphere at JA Mackinnon Oval, with the Sports Department putting on a BBQ with the support of parents and staff.
