AIC Rugby 2019

Lauries would have scored another 2 or 3 tries if not for some basic handling errors.

No 8, John Bryant - a barnstorming performance and the Lauries scrum toyed with Pats and had it over them in the tight. The Pats 8 also very good as was their busy No 7 who despite his size had a whale of a game .

Lauries 15 and Pats 10 other notable mentions

Both teams with stout defense . Good to see.


I know it’s not 1st 15 but the Iona 8As beat Marist 64-0.
Iona tight head prop best under 13/14 in Brisbane I reckon

The Courier Mail is looking to cover the AIC as they did GPS last year.

On line at least.

They cover St Peters today and there's an all time AIC team (somewhat predictable) as well.

MCA def SPLC in ordinary conditions. More MCA supporters than Peters. Infact more Padua boys having a look than Peters (and an SLC camera man filming the match).

Game should have been called off at 3/4 time.
No for and against so a win by 1 is the same as 50.
Good to see the Marist team make replacments late. Lots of Year 11s I assume. No 6 for Marist awsome. Year 11 I think? Hope the SLC film was for the Marist boarding house????
Will be a good match up this year between the traditional rivals.

Im aware that round 1 is this coming weeken and Marist played yesterday at Peters request. When did the others play or were they trials.

I don't know why AIC or SPLC would allow another school other than the team they were opposing onto their grounds conducting any video recording It wouldn't be tolerated at a GPS game, nor would it be requested. Participating schools only.
