CAS U16 Rugby Undefeated at NSWSRU Trials

The CAS U16 Rugby team has gone undefeated at the NSWSRU trials over the weekend. In a strong display in 3 games across the weekend the team posted wins over CCC and CHS and had a draw with GPS Presidents B team to finish 3rd (due to the tournament rules).

In the game against CCC saw CAS win 26 to 12 with tries to Miles Amatosero (W), Lucas Vass (B), and 2 to Jordan Swann (W) Con Lucas Vass (B) and 2 to Mitchell Wheals (B)

The game against GPS Presidents B was an arm wrestle with GPS scoring first which would prove critical for progression in the trial. CAS were down 10-5 at half time with the very strong winds having a major effect on the game. CAS fought back to level the scores however under the tournament rules the first try scorers went through to the Shield Final which meant CAS would play CHS in the John Miller Shield Final. Tries to Luke Hennessy (T) and 2 to Ronald Volkman (W).

In the John Miller Shield final CAS started strongly and were never headed running out winners 29 to 5. Tries to  Ronald Volkman (W), Tyronne Albertyn (B), Ky Willoughby (T), and 2 to Jordan Swann (W) Con 2 to Lucas Vass (B)
