Brumbies 10s Gala Day

By Mr Alex Timms, Sports Program Coordinator

Last Wednesday provided the perfect conditions - a light breeze, no clouds and glorious sunshine - for a rugby gala day. The rules were simple: 15-minute games, 20-minute rotations and the team with the most points won.

The Year 10 Radford boys team of Baxter Sicily (Coach), Sam Lemon, Harry Sincock, Stirling Musgrove, Zac Lloyd, Lachie Cox, Angus Dixon, Nick Kinderman, Finn Hourigan, Rory Munro, Alex Georgalis, Josh Miller, Ben Baker, Hugh Denney and Jakson Kang was enthusiastic about the day.

Radford had to contend with four other schools in our pool: Hennessy Catholic College from Young, Jindabyne High School, Trinity Catholic College from Goulburn, and Yass High School.

It was a tough first game against Jindabyne High School, and the boys unfortunately went down 10-16. We learned a hard lesson about bonus-point tries in this game.

The boys played against Hennessy Catholic College in the second game. This also proved to be a tough game, and Radford went down 19-21 after being denied bonus points for a draw.

With two losses, the boys pulled their socks up for the upcoming two pool games.

Radford played against Trinity in the third game. This was a turning point for the boys, and they managed a strong 14-0 lead early on. Goulburn came back 14-14, but it wasn't enough, and the Radford boys put forward another two tries to finish with a 28-14 victory.

The final game was against Yass High. Unluckily for Yass, the Radford boys were all warmed up and on a winning streak. Another win was on the cards, with the Radford boys finishing 28-17.

In the final game of the day, Radford finished third and was to play Trinity in fourth place again. The Radford boys beat Trinity with an impressive 40-22 result.

Well done to all the boys who participated in this event.
