Rugby sev­ens games were held in Mun­dub­bera on the last day of the tour on July 25.

“It was great to play another sport for a change, Bur­nett State Col­lege stu­dent Lucy Thomp­son said.

“I have played rugby sev­ens two years ago on the Sun­shine Coast, but this was much more friendly and a lot more fun.”

Bur­nett Col­lege stu­dents and Mun­dub­bera State stu­dents played the Emerald teams in un­der-15 and open girls, as well as un­der-15 and open boys.

“It was a great op­por­tu­nity for our stu­dents to have a go at a new sport and we’re look­ing at ex­plor­ing more op­por­tu­ni­ties for them to com­pete,” Bur­nett Col­lege’s phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teacher Nick Banks said.
