    IIRC Daniel Halangahu (Sydney Uni) was running around with Northern Harbour in the NZ ITM cup last year. A real rugby journeyman.

    Their scrum is a bigger joke than the Wallabies at their worst. Average over 1 penalty try conceded a match.

    SUFC Pre-Season Trial vs. NSW Waratahs

    It may only seem like yesterday since the 2014 Shute Shield Grand Finals, but the start of the 2015 Club Rugby season is already fast approaching, with SUFC having played their first pre-season trial against the NSW Waratahs on Saturday at Granville Park.
    As part of their official Fan Day, the NSW Waratahs played 3 of Sydney’s Shute Shield teams in consecutive 30-minute practice matches, including a game against Randwick, Parramatta and SUFC.
    The day brought in an eager rugby crowd, and coinciding with the Semi-Final and Final of the Willie O Cup, Granville Park was buzzing with music and food stalls, as well as giving plenty of opportunities for fans to get up close to Waratah players.
    For SUFC however, the focus was on the rugby, with the game acting as the perfect chance to gauge their pre-season progress against a very quality opposition.
    “It was a fantastic opportunity for our players to have some meaningful football against the Waratahs squad on the weekend” said SUFC Head Coach, Chris Malone.

    Tom Robertson, Tom Coolican and Al Ryan scrum up against a SUFC filled Waratah pack, including Jeremy Tilse
    “We spend so long training that it is good to play football, but most importantly the weekend’s game allowed us to see where we are at in terms of our preparation. We are driving a great program here in terms of long term player development which will hopefully benefit us, and the Waratahs, in time. So to be able to help the Waratahs with preparation for Super Rugby was good.”
    SUFC opened the scoring with Mitchell Whiteley barging over following a penalty, and Byron Hodge adding the extras from the sideline. However, the Waratahs team were too strong, eventually coming away as 22-7 victors.
    Despite acknowledging that there were some areas of the game that will require further attention before the season officially begins, Malone was still able to recognise a number of positives within the performance and is happy with where they boys are at.
    “The game started well and we showed that we know how to play some decent rugby, and having had only one session with boots on (we train all summer in joggers so as not to tear up the cricket ovals), I was reasonably pleased and confident we are tracking in the right direction” he said.
    “There were lapses and things we got wrong, largely due to the fact that we were probably over keen, but that just allowed us to see exactly what we need to do better. Overall, the trial gave us exactly what we want and we now have the next 5 weeks to work on our total game prior to our first trial against Eastwood on March 7th”.”
    The presence of SUFC players on the day was not limited to those who pulled on the Blue and Gold hoops for the game, with plenty of Students in the sky Blue as well.
    [IMG]
    Even our Ball Kids, Jackson and Max, were there working hard!
    “SUFC contributes so much to rugby in NSW so it was good to see so many of our players playing for the Tahs also” said Malone.
    This included the likes established Waratahs players, including Jeremy Tilse, Peter Betham, Bernard Foley, Israel Folau, Nick Phipps, Paddy Ryan, Pat McCutcheon, Will Skelton and Tolu Latu, as well as new pre-season training squad members, Henry Clunies-Ross, Jim Stewart and Matt Philip. Jack McCalman and Christian Yassmin also joined the Waratahs for the day, pulled in from the Gen Blue U20s squad.

    Rugby News Review of Waratahs Trial

    by Paul Cook
    Rugby News

    The final scoreline was of little significance – 58-14 for the record if you combined the three half-hour hit-outs the Waratahs used against Shute Shield opposition last Saturday to kickstart their 2015 season. But the manner of performance, confirmation that the attacking endeavour and elan which led them towards their inaugural Super Rugby title last year was still firmly in situ, was a gratifying highlight on what was a well attended afternoon of rugby in the sun at Merrylands RSL Oval in Granville.
    By choosing club rugby opposition in their first competitive return to the field since that infamous night against the Crusaders six months ago, the state’s premier team ensured that the links with their grassroots heartland – a relationship coach Michael Cheika is deeply passionate about – continued to strengthen as his squad took it’s first steps on the road to defending their title.
    [IMG]
    Some familiar SUFC faces playing for the Tahs - in fact a whole front row against Randwick comprised of Paddy Ryan (#3), Jeremy Tilse (#1) and Tolu Latu (#2).
    Three consecutive 30 minute contests against Randwick (21-0), Sydney University (22-7) and hosts Parramatta (15-7) respectively, also gave Cheika the chance to blood some of his new recruits and take a longer look at a few of last year’s fringe players, while resting the majority of his big guns.
    As a result, Messrs Hooper, Folau, Ashley-Cooper, Foley, Phipps, Kepu, Polota-Nau, Hoiles and fit again skipper Dave Dennis, were wrapped in cotton wool for a further week ahead of this Friday’s stiffer test against the Chiefs. But while many names and faces would have been unfamiliar to the Tahs faithful, Cheika did bolster his fresh faced outfit with some familiarity in the shape of Wallabies Kurtley Beale, Wycliff Palu, Benn Robinson, Rob Horne, Paddy Ryan and Will Skelton.
    As a first run-out in what were physically confronting conditions in 35C heat, Cheika declared himself happy with the afternoon’s work. “I thought it wasn’t too bad considering we’ve got a short pre-season and a reduced amount of opportunities to play matches,” he said. “We got what we wanted out of this, the players that we wanted to get the runs that they needed to get, did that today, and got a bit more running under their belts so I was happy enough.
    “We’re looking towards fitness, just get in there and play whoever,” he continued. “It’s different to training, even when you do highly contested training because the other bloke really wants to get you, as opposed to training where you’re just holding back that edge. It makes a difference, it gets our competitive head on.”
    NSW Waratahs 22 (Taqele Naiyaravaro 2, Jim Stewart, Jed Holloway tries; Jono Lance con) defeated Sydney University 7 (Mitchell Whiteley try; Byron Hodge con)
    After a 5 minute break for much needed drinks, the Waratahs ushered in over half a new team to face Sydney University. A new look front row of Benn Robinson, Hugh Roach and Michael Alaalatoa combined with Will Skelton in the second row, a new halfback in Vasa Faleali’i and a backline reshuffle that included the promising duo of Andrew Kellaway and Jim Stewart.
    But it was the Students who struck first, a quick tap from Jock Merriman sending no.8 Mitchell Whiteley over near the corner. Byron Hodge converted with customary aplomb but Uni’s bright start soon fell away as the Tahs ramped up the pressure.
    [IMG]
    Ben Hughes makes a break against the NSW Waratahs
    A couple of darts from the forwards got them within range before they went two passes off a scrum for Naiyaravoro to cross out wide. The giant winger was then in the right place at the right time soon after to bag his brace before Stewart added a third after good support work along the line.
    Uni went close to scoring a second on a rare foray into the opposition 22 as the clock ticked down the closing minutes before a turnover took the Tahs upfield in style. Switching from coast to coast, the ball finally found Naiyaravoro, who raced away down the flank before releasing Jed Holloway on his inside for arguably the try of the day.
    Impressing against what is his regular club side, Jim Stewart showed just why he earned rave reviews for his form in both the Shute Shield and NRC competitions in 2014. His coach was happy to praise the efforts of he and his fellow young guns afterwards.
    “[He’s part of] a younger brigade that’s on that transition type contract along with Henry Clunies-Ross, Jack Dempsey and Dave Porecki. I thought they were all really good and I was very happy with Mike Alaalatoa too. We’re trying to build something for the longer term as well so what these guys are doing now is not just important for this year, it’s important for what’s going to be happening the year after and the year after that by getting experience at this level.”
    For Stewart himself, coming up against a few familiar faces made for an interesting occasion but he was just glad to get some proper footy under his belt. “We’ve been training for nine or ten weeks now and it’s been a tough pre-season so it’s good to finally get out on the paddock,” he told Rugby News. “It’s strange to come up against your own team and there were a few good little niggles going on and a fair bit of banter but it was a great experience and just good to blow away the cobwebs.”
    [IMG]
    Jim Stewart in pre-season training for the NSW Waratahs
    Stewart would appear to be pretty close to the front of a talented queue of potential future stars for NSW. And with the departure of stalwart Adam Ashley-Cooper at season’s end and Kurtley Beale out of contract after the World Cup, his grooming as the next cab off the rank in the crucial centre positions takes on a paramount importance.
    But the suitably grounded 21-year-old isn’t getting carried away with himself.
    “To make it into the main Waratahs squad would be amazing but just to get better as a player, learn as much as I can and push myself to see how much I can improve is a goal,” he said. “All the boys have been so welcoming and I feel it’s just a great opportunity for me to learn, especially off some of the older guys who can teach me a lot.”

    Willie O Cup Tournament - Felenite Squad

    Coinciding with the Waratahs Fan Day and trial matches last weekend at Granville Park, was the Willie O Cup Tournament
    The tournament is named after Wallabies legend, Viliami Ofahengaue, better known as Willie O. It began in 1993 with ten participant teams, mainly made up of district areas within Sydney. At one stage, during the late 90s, the number of participant teams peaked at 26.
    The main purpose of the Willie O Cup Tournament is to fulfil Willie’s desire to showcase the vast range of talent possessed by the Pacific Islanders within Sydney and Australia. One of the main objectives of the tournament is to provide these players with a pathway towards furthering their individual rugby careers.
    It is also used as part of an educational program teaching players the value and importance of commitment, and providing them with an understanding of what rugby has to offer them individually if they decide to pursue the sport at a high level.
    At the conclusion of the tournament the selection of the representative team is announced. This team, known as the Felenite (Australian Tongan Team), and plays against the Siutaka (New Zealand Tongan Team) on the February 14, 2015.
    Some notable former participants in the Willie O Cup Tournament include; Toutai Kefu, Daniel Manu, Fili Finau, George Smith, Wycliff Palu and Semi Taupeafe; as well as NRL identities such as John Hopoate, Solomon Haumono, Fui Fui Moi Moi and Andrew Fifita.
    This year, Sydney University Football club had two players named in the 2015 Felenite Squad. A huge congratulations to both Faiva Sailosi and Johnny Loseli on your selection in the team!

    Crescent Head Sevens Review

    In our first pre-season tournament for 2015, SUFC competed in the annual Crescent Head Sevens competition last weekend - the perfect opportunity for some of our boys to play against some very quality rugby opposition as the Shute Shield tournament fast approaches.
    [IMG]
    A team of 12, including coach Julian Huxley (who pulled on the jersey after a late drop out), made their way 5 hours up the north coast late on Friday afternoon to be ready for competition early on Saturday morning.
    Up against Hawthorne first at 8.48am, the boys pulled on the Blue and Gold hoops for the first time in 2015, signalling the start of a big season for the club.
    Despite a tight battle at half time, with Sam Quinn scoring right on the bell to level the score to 5-5, it was not the start the team had hoped for. The very young team (with Huxley being the only player over 23 and our youngest just 17!) were out muscled, going down 22-5.
    The cut throat nature of 1-day Sevens competitions meant the boys were already out of contention for the Trophy, but it was the focus to then prove themselves and lift to the level they knew they were capable of.
    Next up was Evans River Rugby Club, and in a brilliant display of fast-paced running Sevens and excellent team work, SUFC walked away with a comfortable 60-0 defeat with tries to Matt Hood (3), Cillian Burke (2), James Kane (2), Banjo Travers (2) and Mitchell Whiteley.
    [IMG]
    Qualifying then for the Bowl Quarter Finals, the next opposition was a completely different line-up, playing Muswellbrook whose speed and strength were immediately apparent. The boys were able to hold on for much of the game, demonstrating some excellent attacking efforts, however eventually Muswellbrook gained momentum, winning 22-12.
    Unfortunately that was the end of the Crescent Head Sevens competition for SUFC. Although it was not the result the boys were looking for, the chance to get time on the field in a game context will be invaluable for their progression leading into the Shute Shield, giving them the chance to identify their focuses for the remainder of the pre-season.
    A huge thank you to Julian Huxley for continuing to coach the boys throughout the pre-season and in competitions. The boys are so lucky to have such experience at leading them. We wish Hux the best of luck as he continues to coach the boys into the next Sevens competition in Kiama.
    Thank you also to Hannah Catchpole for managing and organising the team throughout the trip, and our travelling physio Josie Logue.
    SUFC Crescent Head Sevens Team:
    Julian Huxley (coach)
    Samuel Quinn
    Jake Wainwright
    Justin Fourie
    Mitchell Whiteley
    James Kane
    Hugh Summerhayes
    Banjo Travers
    Tom Koerstz
    Matt Hood

    SUFC take the Shute Shield to the Country: Game times confirmed for Bowral

    As previously annouced, SUFC Grade and Colts sides will be playing against Eastern Suburbs (Easts) on Saturday March 28th at Bowral Rugby Club, Bowral.
    Scheduled to play Easts at Uni’s home for the round 2 clash, SUFC had to source an alternative venue due to the unavailability of Uni No.1 Oval as a result of it still being used by Sydney University Cricket Club.
    With many players of both clubs coming from country regions of NSW, taking the Shute Shield to the Country is a terrific chance for local supporters to get to a game which they ordinarily would be unable to attend.
    It is also a great chance to bring the entire club together, with all our Colts teams also playing on the day.
    Bowral Rugby Club and SUFC will also be working with food and beverage suppliers in the Bowral area to not only support the local community but also provide SUFC and Easts supporters with a taste of the country throughout the day.
    [IMG]
    We are now pleased to announce the timings for games for the Round 2 event!
    Field A
    10:45am – 4th Grade
    12:00pm – 3rd Grade
    1:25pm – 2nd Grade
    3:00pm – 1st Grade

    Field B
    10:45am – 3rd Colts
    12:00pm – 2nd Colts
    1:25pm – 1st Colts

    We look forward to providing you with more information leading up to the day - but it is sure to be a spectacular event, so put it in the diary now!

    Round 2 Review: Close loss for SUFC 1st Grade at inaugral Shute Shield Country Rugby day in Bowral

    By Bruce 'China' Lin
    In a first for the Sydney University Rugby Club, a full premiership round was played at the Bowral Rugby Club fields last Saturday against Eastern Suburbs.
    The hour and a half trip down the M5 motorway through areas more acclaimed for their scrap metal yards, saw Sydneysiders emerge from the urban jungle into an oasis of photinia lined hedges and poplars of the southern highlands hamlet of Bowral.
    [IMG]
    David Hickey captained the team for Round 2 after Tom Carter's hamstring injury last week
    1st Grade saw an early penalty providing University the momentum to press Easts inside their quarter for an extended period. The monopoly of possession proved fruitful when a series of five metre scrums saw the Students pack shunt and cause the referee to award a penalty try for repeated scrum infringements by the Easts pack.
    The 10-0 lead was short lived as Easts exploited loose marking off a ruck for their winger Anderson to score a converted try. Their five eighth Hudson potted another penalty to see the half time score level at 10-10.
    There was a bumper crowd of locals, nearby college students and outsiders lining the sidelines of the Bowral club fields. Marquees were dotting the grassy fringes and the smell of a barbecue was in the air to feed the hungry. Only a catastrophic calamity likened to Zayn Malik this week leaving One Direction could spoil such a gem of a day.
    The second half started strongly for the Students when fullback Henry Clunies-Ross burst into the line. Palming off a defender Clunies-Ross drew the defence and passed back inside for his supporting winger with the blue steel looks Dane McCarthy to score under the posts for a converted try. The score was 17-10 and one would think that University were now starting to play a more expansive style of rugby.
    However this thought was dismantled with lapses in concentration and discipline which allowed Easts back into the game. A shallow kick off was not handled well by University and Easts were able to regather and bump their way into the corner for a try. Another try by Easts saw them momentarily ahead 20-17 but a penalty kicked by second rower Byron Hodge equalled scores.
    [IMG]
    Jake Wainwright scores his second try in just two games for the Students
    University later constructed the best try for the day. Through sets of hands young burly prop Tom Robertson smashed his way through the defence. Robertson about to embark on medical studies visualised he was a St Vincent’s surgeon by his delicate off load to supports who channelled the ball to score out wide. Scores were 25-20 in favour of University but again mistakes and indiscretions handed the game back to Easts. Successive penalties gave Easts Hudson the opportunity to progress to 26-25 with time running out.
    When University attempted to play catch up dropped passes put a stop to their rallying. The final score of 26-25 was frustrating. Despite the disappointment University can take stock that flaws can be rectified at this stage of the season.
    A great day was had down Bowral and the University club extends their appreciation to the hard working rugby folk of the Bowral Rugby Club for their hospitality. Next Saturday University will be up against Gordon at Chatswood Oval.
