Coach's Wrap

The Saturday Interschools Event was a huge success! This carnival was a Queensland Rugby Union sanctioned event. They had a great day. The boys are hooked! 

They played 3 games, two Rugby 7's and one XV’s game. They started by playing Xavier College and defeated them by 28 points to 7. 

In the second game they played Maryborough SHS and were down 21-0 but came back to 21-14. They were pushing for the win in the final play, in the opposition half of the field, retaining the ball through multiple phases but were undone by an intercept after the final hooter! 

Xavier College went on to defeat Maryborough SHS, so BCC were top the table for the day! The next game was a Widebay selection game and combined 15 v 15. The boys were mixed with other teams and played very well. They really enjoyed the XV format and the fact that everyone got selected and were on the field (no substitutes) at the same time. The boys played their hearts out and in the true spirit of rugby, such gentlemen and this was mentioned by a number of parents who were very proud of their boys.

Every one of the boys played very well and have improved their skill set over the past number of weeks. They played as a team and this showed when they were able to pick themselves up from 21-0 down, to come back to nearly snatch the victory. 

Once again it was a pleasure to coach this group of young men. I can’t name one player that stood out as they all played like superstars on the day!
