Confraternity Shield 2015

 

Congratulations to our Firsts and Seconds Rugby League teams on their performances at the Confraternity Carnival during the first week of the holidays. The boys loved their opportunity to represent the College in this prestigious carnival. They learned a lot about themselves, teamwork and mateship over the course of the week, sometimes overshadowing the on-field memories and performance.

The Firsts finished the carnival in 8th position of the 48 teams at the 2015 carnival. A great result considering the injuries to key players prior to and during the carnival. During the round games we defeated St Patrick’s Mackay and Aquinas College and lost narrowly to Cathedral College, Rockhampton. We qualified for the quarter finals and played eventual winners St Brendan’s College losing narrowly.

The Seconds relished the rare opportunity to join the carnival. It was the first time since 2011 that our seconds have been able to participate. They enjoyed some great wins against St Edmund’s Ipswich 2nds and St John’s Roma and performed strongly across the week. Unfortunately they missed out on the division 2 quarter finals but performed credibly for the rest of the carnival finishing in 31st position.

Congratulations to Mitchell Revell and Matthew Hart who were awarded players of the week for the respective teams. Unfortunately we did not get any players in the QISSRL team with Mitchell Revell, Will O’Gradey, Hayden Bartlett and Sam Betros well in the mix for selection. Thank you to Mr Anderson, Mr Albion, Mr Hickey, McKenzie Reid (trainer) and Brendan Dolan (Body Fit Physiotherapy) for their work and time before and throughout the carnival. We look forward to Confraternity in Rockhampton in 2016.
