Scots play Downlands
DOWNLANDS Firsts coach David O’Sullivan wants to see more regular rugby union fixtures against Scots PGC College after the two schools met on Tuesday night at Risdon Oval.
O’Sullivan, a former Goondiwindi and Queensland Country centre, said he was happy his side had a hit out before a 23-man squad left for a tour to Fiji on Saturday.
“The game has been a benefit to us and we didn’t sustain any injuries,” O’Sullivan said.
Scots PGC Firsts coach Greg Convery was happy with the way his side played despite conceding seven tries on Tuesday night.
“The Downlands team has been training all term, and we have only had three sessions after being asked eight days ago to play the game,” Convery said.
“After Easter, we have a three-day rugby union camp before a tour to Armidale,” Convery said.
Convery said all the Scots PGC Year 12 students played well.
“It was a new experience for the Year 11 boys up from U15s.”
The best were No.8 Matt Cowley, props David McMahon and Tom Rudd, and second rower Che Gordon.
