It has been great to see all teams training well. On behalf of the coaches, managers, parents and players I would like to welcome the Under Nine players and their families to CCGS Prep Rugby. We hope you have great season developing new skills and strengthening friendships while learning how to play rugby and having fun. Enjoy the season! Please find the season’s draw on the back of this page. All four teams are listed and the row on the bottom reading ‘ISA Rugby’ outlines when the Senior Rugby fixtures being played (home or away). In case you have missed the School or Rugby Newsletters thus far the Prep Rugby Teams are coached and managed by the following: Under 9s - Mr Steve Dunstan (coach and manager) Under 10s - Mr Jason McGarry (coach), Mr Peter Moroney (coach) and Mrs Sarah Deacon (manager) Under 11s - Mr Tim Cusack (coach) and Mrs Sonja Holden (manager) Prep First XV - Mr Brian Rees (coach) and Mrs Kylie Venner (manager) Prep Rugby will also be assisted by several senior students again this year.

You will be receiving a text from your Team Managers when it is up and running advising you of games times, maps and general information.

The squad were to play 3 games, in Los Angeles, Vancouver and lastly in Comox, on Vancouver Island. The boys enjoyed each and every opportunity to play, however with the very tight schedule, practice time was minimal. Rugby Newsletter CENTRAL COAST GRAMMAR SCHOOL Game 1 v Stern MASS (Mathematics and Science School) Rio De Los Angeles Park (Taylor Field) …….. Los Angeles Tries: McGuinness 2, Fortey, Henderson-Foley, Brown. Goals: Henderson-Foley 3 What a start to the Tour. We arrived to warm up and there was no opposition. We weren’t even sure of where we were playing. The park area was empty (except for a few skate-boarders and walkers). Then the Yellow School Bus arrived and out poured these man-mountain Rugby players! Certainly Not! But yes, they were the opposition. The game begun with a loss of possession, a feature of this game. Our defence was tested with opposition running Channel 1, pick and drive, with their centres running back to link with their big forwards. They played their game plan extremely well. We were tested—again and again. Our first try came from a regaining of possession ball from a well constructed ruck. Stern scored, and we returned for another 5 pointer. 12 to 7 at the end of an extremely hard half. Ball control needed to be better as well as tighter scrummaging. The second half was a repetition of the first. However, jet-lag began to disappear! Ball Control. Ruck and maul Control. Belief. The team began where it left off at practice last term. Yes, the MASS players really wanted to win. CCGS won their first game on tour through shear determination and skill, backing up out wide. A good start. North American Tour The weather was menacing with thick cloud and rain threatening at the premier Rugby Park in Vancouver. The first half began with a breeze at our backs. Phase play was excellent, with the forwards combining very well with skill and attitude and the backs chiming in to attack at every opportunity. Tackles were hard and the bigger Collingwood boys were not sure what was happening to their game plan. CCGS took them up front and scored 3 decisive tries, each a combination of backs and forwards. Rugby Newsletter CENTRAL COAST GRAMMAR SCHOOL Game 2 v Collingwood School Capillano Rugby Park, Park Royal, Vancouver Tries: Robson, Henderson-Foley, Webb 2, McGuiness, Dickinson, Baines. Goals: Henderson-Foley 5 Strong defence was always turned into decisive attack. North American Tour Rugby Newsletter CENTRAL COAST GRAMMAR SCHOOL Running into the wind with showery conditions in the second half should have been an advantage to Collingwood. Not as far as the Tourists were concerned. The continuity of the first half was the order of play and continued in the second half. Not a defensive lapse. If a tackle was broken there was always another Green and Gold willing to take them on. There were 4 scintillating tries in this half. Again the combination between backs and forwards was devastating and to watch smaller boys overpower bigger boys was marvellous. This was the best game on tour. The boys have now overcome the nerves of being in a team with different players around them. Confidence is beginning to flow. Skill and Ability are developing very nicely. The team really appreciated the support given by the other students who were available to watch such a memorable game. Rugby Newsletter CENTRAL COAST GRAMMAR SCHOOL Now, off to Comox to really grow potential. North American Tour Rugby Newsletter C E N T R A L C O A S T G R A M M A R S C H O O L Game 3 v G.P. Vanier School Comox Vancouver Island Tries: Robson, Henderson-Foley, Webb 2, West, McGuiness, Fortey 3, Cooney, Bastick, Baines, Tancred. Goals: Henderson-Foley 8 In this game, the opportunities presented themselves and the boys took them. The Vanier team, although out-muscled and being less skillfull never gave up and showed sparkle and skill at times, especially in the second half. North American Tour Rugby Newsletter CENTRAL COAST GRAMMAR SCHOOL Players from both teams learned a great deal from this game. The CCGS players will need to take the experiences given and learned in this, and the previous games, into the 2015 ISA season. Each boy will have to use every bit of knowledge to help their team mates grow as much as they have.
