We would like to congratulate all our students involved in the State Championships last weekend. It was pleasing to hear the success stories and lifelong memories from a number of Waverley College students involved with various club teams. Well done!
CAS Round 2 Vs Knox Grammar School
This weekend, the final weekend of rugby for Term 2, Waverley College will have a big test against Knox Grammar School. Knox are always a wonderful competition across all age groups, and all our teams will need to be at their best for this encounter.
Our 13s, 16s and Opens will play at Knox, while our 14s and 15s will play at Queens Park.
For those travelling to Knox, it is important that you allow plenty of travel time, as the traffic heading up towards Knox on a Saturday can be busy. We do ask that all players ensure they arrive at least 30 minutes before kick-off. It certainly is disappointing to have players turn up 5 to 10 minutes before the game, as this can really interfere with the team preparations.
We would like to congratulate Jed Holloway (Waverley College Old Boy) for his selection in the Wallabies Squad for the upcoming series against England. Jed has had a terrific season with the NSW Waratahs, and this opportunity is very well deserved. We wish Jed all the very best.
In a different sporting code, we would also like to congratulate Ronald Volkman (Waverley College Old Boy) as he makes his NRL debut for the New Zealand Warriors this weekend. Ronald was part of the 2020 CAS Premiership team, scoring the winning try against Barker College.
On behalf of the Waverley College Rugby Community, we send our condolences to Mrs Maureen Andrews, Waverley College Supporters’ Club Secretary, and her family, following the passing of her beautiful mother last week. We send our love, thoughts and prayers to Mrs Andrews, and I know that all members of the community are right behind the family at this difficult time.
We wish all players the very best in a big week of rugby against Knox Grammar School.
WAVERLEY TO WIN!
Mr John McCoy
Convenor of Rugby
