Waverley College travelled across to Narrabeen to play against St Augustine’s College last weekend. Many spectators commented on this fixture being an extremely physical encounter, with the tackling and strong defensive efforts of both schools being a feature of most of the matches played.
The fixture allowed coaches to continue to monitor individual player performances and make adjustments to team lists. Overall, there were improvements in some areas and there was evidence of those key areas we do need to work on across the school.
We send our best wishes to all those students who may have unfortunately suffered knocks and injuries over the weekend. To those students, please know that you are still a big part of Waverley College Rugby and we would love to continue to see you at training and at the games to help your teams.
Rugby Vs Shore
This weekend Waverley College plays against Shore. Our 13s, 16s and Opens are playing at the Shore School playing fields (Northbridge), while our 14s and 15s return back to the glorious Queens Park Grounds. Shore will be a good contest for all teams as we continue to move closer to the commencement of the CAS competition.
As our 14s & 15s age groups will be playing at Queens Park, we are looking for parents and friends who might be able to assist on the canteen. If you are able to help, please register your name on the online roster: https://signup.com/go/cRPQVPx
Match Reports – Student Opportunities
We are looking for students in all teams across the school who are interested in writing match reports for the games they may be involved with. This is a great way to share the memorable moments from your match with the community. Students who are interested are welcome to send their match reports to Mr McCoy each week (email@example.com) with prizes awarded for the best report.
A reminder that Waverley College Rugby has a ‘Team App’ for players, parents, carers and coaches to download. Team App is a platform that will allow our Rugby community to improve communication by integrating everything you need to know about Rugby at the College. This includes news, fixtures, team lists (updated each week), live scores and a photo gallery.
If you would like to access this information on your mobile devices, simply download this free app (Team App by Team Mates). Once the app is downloaded, search for Waverley College Rugby and register. You will then be authenticated by the College and given access to the information.
Wishing all teams the best for this weekend!
