The 1sts and 2nds Opens Rugby teams continued on their winning way today at the NSWSRU selection trials.
In the first game CAS 2nds were behind early against a very large CCC team. 7 nil after 5 minutes it looked like it was going to be a tough day, however the superior skills and fitness of the CAS team started to shine through and at half time CAS had gone to the lead. In the second half it was all one way traffic with CAS bottling up the CCC attack and becoming more and more dominate in the scrum and lineout. The final score of 40-7 was a testament to the work the players have put into their training this year.
CAS 40 Tries L Wallace (W) x2, S Rahme (A), H Whiteman (W), P Flaherty (A), D Garing (K), Con T Woodcock (K) x 5
CCC Try J Delailoa Con M Zakhia
In the 1st game the boys knew they were in for a very tough contest. CAS opened the scoring but ISA were not to be denied and hit back tying the game at 7 all. The scrums were a battle all game with both front rowers working hard all game to gain the upper hand however no team really gained it. In general play the CAS backline started to get on top and the tries started to follow. 3 tries in the 2nd half saw CAS pull away finishing the game 28-7 winners.
CAS 28 Tries N Frost (K), M Stead (T), B Donaldson (W), L Ilias (T), Con B Donaldson (W) x4
ISA 7 Try H Ward, J Sidery
