On Wednesday 5 October, Year 6 student, Alan Davies from St Finbar’s Primary, Glenbrook was named ‘player of the tournament’ after helping his NSW Primary Schools Sports Association (NSWPSSA) rugby team to win the Phil Waugh and Trevor Allan Shields at Concord Oval in Sydney.
The rugby squad competed at the Australian championships for rugby union representing primary schools across NSW.
Alan plays for the Parramatta diocesan rugby team managed by Parramatta diocesan teacher, Adam Fletcher, and he was selected to play for the Southern NSW diocesan combined team, MacKillop. The MacKillop team competed against the public school regions and combined independent school teams for selection in the NSWPSSA side.
Alan’s identical twin brother Harry also made the Parramatta Diocesan and MacKillop rugby teams but he had to withdraw from playing due to injury. Adam Fletcher says both boys are excellent players and have a great future in rugby union.
‘I will say, both boys are phenomenal players who consistently put in a lot of effort,’ said Adam. ‘Alan’s recognition as player of the tournament is a terrific achievement.’
The 2012 rugby Schools Gala day/Parramatta Diocese selection trials to attend the Mackillop Trials in Forbes will be held Friday, May 25, 2012 9am - 3pm at Nepean Rugby Park, Penrith.
