"First XV rugby"

Mya Mahuika —

John Paul II First XV rugby team put in a strong performance on Wednesday in a close match with Grey High that saw them fall just short in a 32-19 loss. The start of the game saw a try from our very own Antonio Verhoeven. With both teams scoring a try at the start of the match, it could have gone anyway. The second half saw Grey High pull away just enough for our team to not quite be able to catch up. While the match did not end up going our way, the boys were very proud of their good performance and hard work on the field and are looking for some revenge in the next game. The tries were scored by Antonio Verhoeven (X2) and Ryan Brenhuhl. Great job team!

Special thanks to Jasmine Dodemaide, Emily Berry, Mac Gibson, Aston Wilson and Madeleine Campbell for all the work they did to put this team together.
