Under 16’s Rugby League

The Under 16 Rugby League team played in the Central Coast All Schools Roosters Shield on Thursday 16 May at Berkeley Vale Oval. A bright, sunny day greeted the boys and lent itself to some fast, attacking football.

The team played pool games (20 minute games, with no half-time) against Terrigal High School (winning 20-0), Wyong High School (winning 24-4) and Lisarow High School (winning 12-4). Missing a few notable players, the assembled squad more than made up for this with thorough teamwork. The boys responded, playing their part in the team structure and as a result they scored a number of fantastic team tries. The highlight being their defence and the way in which they kept turning up for each other – no matter who was on the field at the time.

The result meant St Edward’s moved into a semi-final against Narara Valley High School. A slow start and some good lead-up work from Narara Valley saw them jump out to an early lead 4-0. To the credit of the St Edward’s boys, they aimed up in the next set after the kick-off to force a mistake from Narara. In the resulting set, St Edward’s scored. From there, the team were never troubled and ran away with the game to win 30-4. A tremendous result and a great effort by all boys involved.

The team now moves onto the Central Coast Finals Day (Thursday 20 May) against Wadalba High School.
