IT HAS been a suc­cess­ful 2018 for New Zealand Schools, who won all three of their re­cent fix­tures in Bris­bane.

They kicked off their cam­paign with a 54-0 thrash­ing of Tonga Schools, in which Gideon Wram­pling crossed for two tries, and fol­lowed it up with a 55-31 win over Aus­tralian Schools Bar­bar­ians. Wram­pling again scored a brace, as did Blair Mur­ray.

They com­pleted the series with a 24-12 de­feat of Aus­tralia Schools, with

Mur­ray, Saula Mau, Ta­maiti Wil­liams and Rivez Rei­hana all scor­ing tries. Fly-half Rei­hana scored 23 points across the three matches, while full-back Mur­ray was awarded the Jerry Collins Me­mo­rial Bronze Boot.

New Zealand’s Bar­bar­ians

Schools team lost both their fix­tures in Welling­ton, go­ing down 21-20 to

New Zealand Maori U18 and 15-10 to Fiji Schools. The Maori U18 side also de­feated Fiji Schools 20-15. …is how long the ball is in the air from a high kick. A good tar­get for box kicks is 3-4 sec­onds, enough time to make de­cent ground yet also al­low the player chas­ing the kick to chal­lenge for pos­ses­sion.
