Students play hard for State 7s titles


The Primary and Secondary Schools State Championships were run and won this week as over 700 students from across New South Wales took to the field for their school.

The King’s School in Parramatta played host to two days of tough competition, which was split into Secondary Schools on the first day and Primary Schools on the second.

Sydney Metro Rugby Development Manager Owain Roberts says the tournament is a perfect baseline for progressing through the NSW pathway.

“The importance of the competitions is that it can give players a pathway to reach higher honours,” Roberts said.

As the man on the ground, Roberts said the two days of competition had a great atmosphere and provided plenty of highlights.

“The two days of competition brought out the best in the students, and it was great to see the enthusiasm all around the ground,” said Roberts.

Day one with the Secondary Schools saw plenty of hotly contested running rugby, as boys and girls from U16s and U18s battled it out for the title.
