Waverley College Vs Oakhill College
Last weekend, Waverley College played against ISA school, Oakhill College. The day was evenly matched with both schools coming away each with 10 victories. Undoubtedly, our teams will continue to improve as we head towards the CAS season, which commences on the first weekend of June.
Highlights on the day included the mighty 13Bs win. Down 20 to 7, with five minutes on the clock, the 13Bs managed to come from behind to score two tries in the dying stages of the match. The final try, a penalty try, had all celebrating on the field and on the sidelines. Congratulations to Mr Soden and his side for never giving up!
I would also like to highlight the efforts of one of our star junior referees, William Whitaker. William refereed a number of matches on Saturday, despite feeling a little unwell on the day. We thank William for his all efforts in officiating – we would not be able to enjoy the beautiful game of rugby without our officials. Thank you, William.
This coming weekend, we are very much looking forward to a Super Saturday of rugby at Queens Park. All teams are scheduled to play at Queens Park against St Augustine’s College. This should be an entertaining day of rugby with all our A teams on the famous QP1 ground, from the 13As right through to the 1st XV. It should be an exciting atmosphere and we encourage all members of the community to come along to support the day.
Canteen and BBQ Support – We Need You!
We would love to welcome parents/carers and friends of players in all teams to donate some time to assist on the canteen and BBQ at Queens Park – even for a half hour (while your son warms up for his match).
It certainly is an excellent way to meet new parents/carers and friends, in what is such a positive and friendly environment, led by our incredible Rugby Supporters’ Club.

Thanks for your assistance – we truly appreciate all your help!
Achievements of our Old Boys
It has been pleasing to see a number of Waverley College Old Boys continuing to do well on the playing field. We are certainly proud of the achievements of our Old Boys and no doubt, these men will continue to inspire the next generation of Waverlians!
Last weekend, the Super Rugby match played between the Waratahs vs Rebels match (which was commentated by Old Boy Morgan Turinui!), included Sam Talakai (Rebels), Jed Holloway (Waratahs), and Ben Donaldson (Waratahs), who set up a terrific try at the end of the match.
Benny O’Donnell is doing a terrific job at the ACT Brumbies, along with Klayton Thorn, who must not be far away from making his debut, having a strong involvement in the Brumbies Squad. Henry Paterson also continues to do very well for the Australian Sevens team.
In the NRL, Old Boys Davvy Moale (Souths Sydney Rabbitohs) and Ronald Volkman (NZ Warriors), continue to impress. Ronald scored a brilliant individual try against the Bulldogs last weekend.
In club land, we are seeing a number of Old Boys doing well across a number of clubs. The Galloping Greens (Randwick) first grade team, which is coached by Old Boy Stephen Holies, currently has four players in the side including Finn Wright, Joel Ellis, Jackson Mohi and Zac Carr.
We wish all teams the very best for this coming weekend of rugby.
Waverley to win!
