King's Makes Rugby History
King's made College history recently with players from our rugby program named as State and National school representatives for the first time. Special congratulations to Koji Goulding who is King's inaugural Australia School Boy's representative after successfully being selected for this prestigious team. We are also very proud of Tobias Mene, Rikau Tuahine and Jat White who were successfully selected for the Queensland Reds U16's Academy. Jarvis Kaltenbach and Sione Pousini also did very well to make the trial. Koji joins a team that has produced a number of rugby greats, including current Wallabies Michael Hooper (Captain), Tate McDermott and Jordan Petaia, to name a few. He also is part of an exclusive group that includes historic Australian greats the Ella brothers and twins Mark and Glen. We pray that the Lordwill continue to bless, challenge and drive you to higher honours Koji!
All of these boys have achieved this from a 'non-rugby' school and as well as playing for King's, play in their local competition for their local clubs. They are all a testament to their families, staff, teachers, chaplains and coaches who have invested in their life. Early morning training, rigorous conditioning and psychological sessions, and ongoing correction, but they have demonstrated great perseverance by continually overcoming challenges and working hard, to get to this point in their life. Well done boys - we look forward to seeing you all progress further in your rugby journey and being all that you were created to be. You are now examples of what can be achieved at our school with no physical rugby field but a strong spiritual field of character development. 2022 is yet to be discovered but we know it holds further blessings for every student at King's.
Thank you to King's P&F Committee who recently purchased the specialised scrum equipment [pictured] that will help our players take their scrum skills to the next level!
