CIS Rugby League Gala Day held


A group of boys from Years 4 and 5 at Holy Cross Catholic School, Kincumber, participated in the Catholic and Independent Schools (CIS) Rugby League Gala Day held recently.

A mix of regular rugby league and rugby union players, as well as some boys who had never played league before, participated in the U10 division. The day was designed to create interest and promote participation in sport, both of which were achieved, according to staff member Chris Franklin, who accompanied the boys. “It was wonderful to see that our experienced players encouraged and involved all members of the team to do their best,” said Mr Franklin.

“All team members were very good sportsmen and the smiles at that end of the day is a testament to how much they enjoyed themselves. “Even though the scores of the day were not recorded, the Holy Cross boys finished undefeated.” They beat Mackillop College Warnervale 12-0, St Mary’s Toukley 8-0 and drew 8-8 with St Brendan’s Lake Munmorah, who were also undefeated on the day.
