Rugby Liaison Report

 The start of Term 3 saw the rugby teams wrap up their 7s competition, with all teams playing off in the top four for each grade. This saw St Hilda’s take away multiple titles in the Junior A grade, with our three Year 10 teams taking out first, second and third, and our Year 9 team placing third in the Junior B grade. In the Senior A grade, St Hilda’s 1 placed second and St Hilda’s 2 placed fourth. This was a great effort from all of the girls and coaches, allowing us to carry this momentum into the 15s season for the seniors and 10s for the juniors.

The first XV have had Jess Sutherland and Alan West coaching, and have been undefeated all season. The girls won their final against Otago Girls 38-10, which has now been won by St Hilda’s for the past 3 years. For the 10’s grade, Gareth Taylor, Grant Milne and Tia Clark have continued coaching and working with the girls from 7s and developing their 10’s skills into games.
