This week a team of 11 SUFC players are representing USYD in the Rugby 7s competition of the Australian University Games on the Gold Coast.
The team rose to the challenge recording two strong wins on day one of competition beating the Queensland University of Technology 19-10, then backing up to overcome the UNSW 22-5.
They continued to set a cracking pace on day two as they demolished Bond University 52-0 then accounted for Melbourne Uni 29-0. Their third game of a massive day of competition was against the University of Canberra who prevailed in a tight contest 24-14.
USYD then drew on their reserve engines to overcome Western Sydney University 24-12 to finish the day 3-1.
Unfortunately, USYD fell short to Australia Catholic University in the qualifying finals 24-17 which meant they were out of the running for a medal. Later on in the day they met University of Canberra in the losers play off, USYD came out on top, with a 3 try to 1 victory, FT 21-7. This win saw them take on fellow Sydney team, University of Technology Sydney for 5th spot. UTS came out on top in this one beating USYD 26-10.
Overall USYD finished in a respectable 6th place out of 15 teams.
