Wet Weather

Unfortunately, the wet weather has impacted on the commencement of the 2022 Rugby season. We have been fortunate enough to have some trial periods during the week, however, we are very mindful that a number of students have been unable to trial due to Cadet Camp, the impact of COVID-19, illness, and various other reasons.

We will certainly be using the opening trial fixtures in Term 2 against King’s and Riverview to assist coaches with team selections and establish team structures. Our focus will be on the CAS Competition which commences at the start of June.

2022 Season Guide

Please keep your eye on the Waverley College app over the coming holiday period, where we will be publishing the 2022 Season Guide. This sets out all the information you need to know regarding the upcoming Rugby season.

May Procession – Sunday, 1 May, 2022

We are aware of and certainly support a number of students who are involved in external sporting club commitments. As a note, we are expecting that all Waverley College students commit to the May Procession on Sunday, 1 May.

In some instances, we are working with clubs to ensure they can create fixtures at times around the May Procession timeslot.

The May Procession is a highly significant tradition at Waverley College (for over 100 years) and is a key part of our identity as an Edmund Rice school.

Enjoy the upcoming holiday break!


Waverley to Win!
