Interschool Rugby 7s



The Interschool Rugby 7s competition has started in fast and furious fashion with the first two rounds showcasing speed, skill, and some big hits.


With a relatively new team, the 13s team have done a great job of picking up the rules and using these to their advantage. We saw some great steals at the breakdown from Ella, speed and passing skill from Sophie and Molly, and some great line breaks and big tackles from Liara, Jade, Kyzekia and Helena. Only having played one round so far, the girls have had a very close loss to RGS and a draw with Emmaus. This Thursday will see the 13s division playing their round 2 games.


In the 15s division, it took our girls a couple of games to find our feet again after a successful 2023. Round one saw us go down narrowly to RGS and a heavy defeat to a very dominant St Ursula’s team. In round 2, we dusted off the cobwebs and had a great day with wins over TCC1 and Emmaus. Kaylyn could be seen streaking away down field for multiple runaway tries. Grace provided amazing offloads and drew 2-3 defenders with each run, creating space for our speed players, with Beryl also running in a couple of tries. Vivian provided defensive stability in the middle and won the ball against the run of play many times with her big hits.


We have unearthed some talented gems in the opens division with our new players taking to rugby like ducks to water. In round 1, we narrowly went down to EMC and had a tough day out against a very experienced RGS team. The girls showed amazing grit and determination, with a growing self-confidence now that their first week was out of the way, and in round 2 they dominated MMHS and TCC, taking out two wins for the day. Aylah could be seen sprinting away for multiple full field tries, Rosie, Tahlya and Dale are the team workhorses, stabilising play in attack, tackling anything that moves in defence, and winning the ball back at every opportunity. While Pamela, Veronica and Jalime capitalise on any space the opposition gives them to dart away and gain valuable meters for our team.


As you can imagine, it’s been all smiles and some sore bodies after the first two rounds. Well done girls, keep giving your all and doing us proud!

 

This Sunday, 25 February, the 15s and Opens team will be taking on RGS in a Sunday Rugby Showcase at the Rockhampton Grammar School bottom oval from 5.10pm. We hope to see some Girls Grammar supporters out there to cheer us on.
