2017 Confraternity Shield

2017 Confraternity Shield

Congratulations to the St Mary’s College First XIII Rugby League team who were placed 7th in the 2017 Confraternity Shield. This famous state-wide competition of Queensland’s Independent & Catholic schools has a wonderful history and tradition, with a high standard of competition provided each year. The boys had some solid wins including: 18-8 win against Marymount, Gold Coast, 26-4 win against Padua College and another tough 16-0 win against Emmaus College, Rockhampton. They suffered a 16-6 loss against St Pat's, Shorncliffe on Tuesday afternoon in the quarter-final; and after a positive start the confraternity boys went down 28-14 to St Brendan's College to finish the Confraternity carnival for 2017. In hot conditions the boys prevailed 24-16 over Padua College to be placed 7th out of 48 teams. There is no doubt that the excellent standard of representative Rugby League coaches on staff, the College program to increase our boys’ fitness and strength in the gym and the additional stronger level of competition we now participate in (Brisbane competition) has made a significant difference to our boys’ overall performance. Many thanks to our dedicated coaches and staff who accompanied the boys: Mr Robert Anderson (Coach), Mr Sean Albion (Manager) and assistants, Mr Michael Krog and Mr Mitch Koina. Well done, gentlemen.
