Neddies boys love international stage
NEDLANDS Rugby Union Club’s under-11s team achieved backto-back victories at the Centaurs Youth Rugby Tournament in Singapore earlier this month.
The under-11s went through the tournament undefeated and kept the host Centaurs club scoreless in the final, after winning the under-10s category last year.
Neddies also had under-8s, under-10s and under-12s competing at the tournament that is in its ninth year and attracts about 150 junior teams from more than five countries.
Many of the Neddies players returned with mementos after customary jumper swaps with opposition teams from different countries.
The Nedlands club is now arranging to host games from visiting Singaporean rugby teams at the Foreshore.
The tournament success caps off a successful year for Neddies, who shared the 2015 RugbyWA Steve Fink award for WA’s Best Junior Club.
The unbeaten Neddies under-11s celebrate backto back Cup wins at the Centaurs tournament.
