King's Rugby 7's Girls Show Grit and Grace
King’s Rugby 7’s female teams demonstrated exceptional character, attitude and commitment as they represented the College at the QRU Miami 7’s tournament on Wednesday.
The U15 side consisted of a number of players who had never played rugby before, but their natural athleticism and the skills they had developed in recent training sessions showed throughout the day. It was wonderful to watch their confidence grow with each game. They faced a tough pool and came up against a strong and experienced Keebra side twice in the round, before playing Varsity College in the semi-final. After a hard-fought game, the King’s team only came down by a couple of tries and bounced back in the playoffs for 3rd and 4th where they convincingly beat Miami SHS to finish 3rd overall. An outstanding achievement for their first tournament, well done!
King’s U18 girls had a sterling start and won their first two games against Varsity and Mt Maria with ease. North Lakes’ strong opposition disrupted King’s at the start of the game but they reverted back to the game plan and the tries flowed in, leading to a convincing King’s win 35-0. The win gave our team confidence going into the finals against Miami SHS, who were the reigning QLD champions. Miami started strong but King’s responded to provide an exciting and hard-fought game from both sides. It came down to the final whistle and unfortunately King’s trailed Miami in the closing seconds of the game. Congratulations to all of our King’s players for your resilient attitudes and impeccable sportsmanship.
Thanks to our King’s coaches and support crew who made this all possible.
