Usaia O’Sullivan (11We) represented Sydney Juniors at the U/16 National Championships held last week in Queensland at Nudgee College. Congratulations to the three boys on their achievements with their individual teams. Congratulations to a number of Year 9 and 10 students who have been selected in the NSW Rugby Union‘s Western Sydney Talent Identification Programme squad based at Parramatta. The six boys selected were Thanasi Marsters (10Ho), Vincent Morsello (9Sc), Harrison Orr (10St), Andrew Smart (10Hi), Anthony Jones (10Fo) and Alexander Kuo (10He). This is an initiative organised by NSW Rugby Union to develop and give valuable coaching to prospective representative U/15 and U/16 players of the future. A number of staff members were heavily involved in coaching and the management of NSW Schools Rugby teams this year. Mr Peter Gibson, Trinity Grammar School’s Boarding Master, coached NSW Schools 2nd XV at the National Championships in Canberra in July. Mr Jed Hogan (Director of Coaching) coached the NSW Schools U/16 team and was ably assisted in the Manager’s role by Mr David Munnoch (Young Middle School Housemaster) at the U/16 Nationals in Brisbane in September and October. Mr Thomas Lombardo (Old Boy/2001) was the physiotherapist during the week-long tournament. One Old Boy who has certainly taken the opportunity to learn and gain greater experience at the highest level of Club Rugby is that of Rory Sidey (Old Boy/2004). Rory had until recently been playing Rugby with West Harbour Rugby Union Club in the 1st Grade
