The Weekly Wrap

Your Round 4 Wrap.

Rugby Wrap

As we head towards the half way mark of the season I would like to congratulate all teams and coaches for their commitment to date. Last weekend was a test of our playing depth and width with teams playing far and wide. A special thanks to our age group coordinators Mr Blair Copelin and Mr Brendan McGrath who managed to juggle teams lists to ensure we had enough boys to fulfil our commitments to the supplementary draw.

It's pleasing to see the continual improvement of all teams as the season progresses. The willingness to shift the ball to space and use the width of the field was evident with plenty of entertaining tries from all parts of the fields.

Once again I must thank our referees for their efforts each weekend. Special thanks goes to our student referees Charlie Marshall,Dominic Coonan, Billy Boulton, James Nottingham, Cooper Ree and Darcy Whittaker who are always willing to referee games each weekend. Refereeing is a great way for parents to be involved so if you are a dad or mum with referring experience and want to be involved please contact me in the Sport Office.

Congratulations to the following boys who represented Met Nth and the Chairman’s teams at the recent Under 12 State Carnivals Xavier Grambower and Harry McKim.

A weekly Terrace Team Man is selected by the coaching staff during the GPS season. This is in recognition of any player who makes an outstanding contribution to their team both at training and in a game.

An important reminder that Training is not optional, if your son is unable to make training he is required to let his age group coordinator know.

I wish every team all the very best for their games this weekend against TSS.
