Did you know…….
We have another new Wallaby at SUFC. That being Josh Kemeny (Wallaby No.968).
Josh of Cranbrook School becomes SUFC 111th Wallaby last weekend when he ran on verses Argentina. Congratulations Josh from everyone at Uni footy.
We actually had 11 SUFC players representing Australia last Saturday.
In the Argentina match Josh was with Will Skelton, Matt Philip and Angus Bell.
While over in Tonga we had Folau Fainga’a, Tom Lambert, Lachlan Swinton, Brad Wilkin, Jake Gordon, Bernie Foley and Sammy Talakai playing for Australia ‘A’ verses Tonga.
In Shute Shield our 1st XV defeated Hunter-Newcastle on their home ground 36-12 after being down 0-14 in the first half. This win was costly to HN as they fell from leading the competition to fourth place.
Two 1st Grade debuts were made with Oskar Hicks playing his first run on game (from Colts) and Max von Appen making his debut from 2nd grade.
Jac Lloyd is now on 95 club points and should reach his 100 verses Easts this Saturday at home. Eddie Poolman brings up his 50th Club game in the same match.
The club (three games only) scored 147 points to 61. Average score was 49-20 and we scored 24 tries to 8.
Max Robson only needs 4 more points to bring up his 800 career points, (includes Colts points). At the moment his second to Jac in the club on 58 points this season.
The highest grade try scorer is James Widders-Leece with 8.
In Colts Arnie Tancred, Jullien Caillol both reached their 50 points this year when each scored their 10th try of the season. Nacani Batidruva moved to 15 with 2 more tries in 1sts Colts 70-7 victory. And Dan Nelson ran over for a hat trick in the same game.
Leading point scorer in Colts is Jack Matthews who at the moment is on 87 with Olly Schmude on 83.
Last week I mentioned Colts had scored 197 tries so the third try scored in Colts 1sts was the 200th, and that scored by Sam Allsopp.
