1st XV RUGBY PRE SEASON GAME
The 1st XV played against Sacred Heart in the annual Marist pre season tournament. With a lot of new players and limited preparation, St Paul's played well and narrowly lost 12-5. Given the short lead up to the game and inexperience of many of the team, this is a very encouraging results. Expect big things from this team in 2016.
