RUGBY CORNER: FESTIVAL OF RUGBY  

What a great afternoon of rugby on Saturday! Our Alleygators took on a Solomon Island team with plenty of size and speed on a balmy afternoon.  Our boys never gave up going down 5 to nil.

The Alleygators backed up and played the Wynnum Bugs going down 15-7.  The boys were feeling the effects of the heat in the previous game and gave their all but couldn’t find the spark to get the win.

There was plenty to be enthused about with a number of players coming out of the woodwork.  The boys are gelling well and there is a great team spirit within the squad.  A player to watch is Taanii Teapou who played his first game of rugby on Saturday.  A hulking second rower who will improve with learning the game. He is the cousin of international league star T- Rex Tony Williams.

A sour note on the day was the serious injury to our new recruit Vlad Savovski.  Vlad was playing his last game for Warwick before transferring to the Alleygators but 2 minutes into his first game at the swamp he broke his leg in 2 places and ruptured tendons.  He has been operated on and 2 screws have been inserted in his legs to assist the recovery. Vlad will play a role this season assisting in coaching senior men and ladies rugby.  All the best with the recovery big fella.

Vlad has been recruited to the Alleygators for 2018 in a playing and coaching role and will play one of his last games for the Water Rats on Saturday at Gators!

FOOTY FLASHBACK

How about this team photo from 1988.  Mullets were the fashion and Johnny Farnham was at the top of the charts.   Matt & Roy Kennedy still around the club, Neville Love (c)  and Barry Duncan (Tulip) one of the best players the club has ever seen.

SOUTHERN CROSS RUGBY ACADEMY PRE-SEASON PROGRAM

Our 1st Sunday morning pre-season session kicked off on the weekend, with 8 young players starting out and working hard.

Continuing each Sunday morning of March from 9:00am, plenty of space for more players looking to get a head start on the season. Contact ryan.roberts@scra.com.au for further information.
