NSW 2 Jamaine Crossley
COMBINED STATES Ollie Kamp© Nick Kellaway
The ASRU Schools Rugby Championships were held at St Ignatius College, Riverview culminating in an all-NSW final last Saturday (6/7/13).
In a tight fought match, NSW 1 defeated NSW 2 20 – 14, with Andrew Kellaway scoring 2 of his team’s 3 tries. Due to an injury to the NSW 1 Captain, Andrew stepped in and captained the team for 3 of the 4 matches played – which resulted in NSW retaining the BH “Jika” Travers Shield for the second consecutive year.
Of note also was the awarding of an ASRU Dr Syd Sugarman Award to Nick Kellaway – for the Best Team Man at the Championships for the Combined States Team.
Following the conclusion of the ASRU Championships, the ASRU announced the selection of the Australian Schoolboys and Australia A teams to play in the tri-nations tournament in October. The following Scots boys were selected to play in these matches:
AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLBOYS TEAM
