NSW State Rugby Championships
Well done to all students who competed in the NSW State Rugby Championships last weekend, and especially to the Randwick U16 side captained by Oliver Aboud. This team were crowned premiers and had a large number of Waverley College students.
Also special mention to 13As player Josiah Manoufetoa, who was also part of the Manly U12 State premiers. It was great to see a number of his school teammates from other clubs, cheering him on in the final.
This coming week we also have a number of students trialing for CAS squads in Volleyball.
Congratulations to the following boys selected for CAS 1sts AFL to play GPS next week: Joel Burgess, Freddy Hunt, James Kambas, Louis Kitto, Hugo Roles, Sam Stewart, Tom Stewart, Vasili Vertsonis, Jett Wanda.

Three Old Boys Selected for Prestigious Squads
I want to also make special mention of three Waverley College Old Boys:

- Ben Donaldson (Class of 2017) who was selected for Australia A to play Pacific Nations
- Ronald Volkman (Class of 2020) who was selected this week to start for the NZ Warriors against the Panthers in the NRL.
We wish these gentlemen well and will certainly be cheering them on for upcoming matches. We are running out of wall space at the Queens Park Pavilion for all of these legends of the College!
