Rugby Vs Newington
The weekend Waverley College will meet Newington College in our first rugby trial fixtures for 2023. Our 13s, 16s and Opens teams will play at Queens Park, while our 14s and 15s teams will be playing at Stanmore on the Newington Fields. Please note that our 14Cs will be playing against St Augustine’s at Pittwater on Saturday afternoon (as Newington does not match up with the number of teams we have in this age group).
Please note that team lists and fixtures will be updated on the Waverley College app on Thursday evening.
*Players need to arrive at the grounds no later than 30 minutes before the match is scheduled, to ensure that teams have a thorough warm up. Players must ensure they have the correct playing gear, including a mouthguard.
With rain scheduled for Saturday, all players should always assume that matches will go ahead unless you hear otherwise. If there are any cancellations or ground closures the Co-Curricular Team will communicate this to the community through the Waverley College app as soon as we can.

Thank you for your support in advance!
Over the holidays, a group of 65 senior students and 10 staff had a fantastic opportunity to travel overseas for the 2023 Japan Football and Rugby Tour. The group had such an incredible experience not only playing against some quality opposition, but learning a great deal about Japanese culture.
Tour highlights included visiting the Hiroshima Peace Park, Osaka Castle, sightseeing in Kyoto, Mt Fuji, watching J-League/Japanese Rugby matches, the School Exchange Program, experiencing the busy streets of Tokyo, and the sights of Singapore.
Further to this, a group of Junior School students were involved in the country trip to Armidale. The Armidale School Rugby Carnival is always an exciting time away, and from all reports, the tour will certainly help prepare our younger representatives in the Junior School for the season ahead.
A huge thanks to the staff involved who gave up their holidays so that our students could enjoy these unforgettable life experiences. Thanks also to the parents/carers who travelled and supported our boys on the sidelines.
Good luck to all teams this weekend in your trial matches against Newington.
Waverley to win!
