Rugby – Representative Selectionsdeveloper
Despite the break from the CAS competition there have been numerous Trinitarians plying their skills on the rugby field. The significant efforts of our young men have been rewarded, with several students selected in a variety of teams.
From their efforts in the CAS 1st XV Competition, Olly White (12FO) was selected for the CAS 1st XV, while Theo Kidd (12WJ), Kai Roberts (12LA) and Hunter Hannaford (12DU) were selected in the CAS 2nd XV. They played GPS last Thursday night and they will take the field again on Friday, with the CAS 1st XV playing the CHS 1st XV and the CAS 2nd XV taking on CCC.
Following the CAS Under 16s Trials, five young men were selected for the CAS Under 16s Team; Orly Hatton-Ward (10SC), Alisi Leao (11MU), Paulo Tauiliili-Pelesasa (11HE), Kian Edmed (11FO) & Max Meagher (9HI). They will compete at the NSWSRU Trials on the first weekend of the school holidays and vie for a spot in the NSW Under 16s side.
Over the June long weekend, we had several of our players represent their club teams in the NSW State Championships. Trinity players were active in the Under 14, 15, 16 and 18 age groups. The following boys were selected in representative teams:
- Akira Chapman (9DU) and Cameron Van der Groot (9WE) were selected in the Sydney Under 14s squad.
- Sam Niulala (10ST) was selected in the Sydney North Under 15s side.
- Ashton Frazer (9MU), Malik Amine (10YO), Dane Micthell (10LA) and Mitchell Chen (10AR) were selected in the Sydney South Under 15s side.
- Alisi Leao (11MU) was selected in the Sydney Under 16s Blue side.
Congratulations to all these boys for their efforts.
