Spring Break provided a once in a lifetime opportunity for 46 senior rugby players to, both, prepare for the upcoming season and experience the heartland of rugby. While the results (2nd XV – 2 wins 2 losses; 1st XV 3 wins 1 loss) were excellent, the real highlight was how the boys conducted themselves. The coaches were constantly complimented on their positive and polite behaviour.
We would like to acknowledge the coaches that accompanied the boys – Mr. Mike Stiles – Head Coach, Mr. Bruce Wilson, Mr. Bill Chamberlain and Mr. Jonathan Figueroa.
After a long and enjoyable tour, Mr. Stiles gave out some awards.
