The Two Blues are extremely proud to announce four of our Two Blues Colts have been announced in the Australian 7s team for the World School 7s Tournament to be held in New Zealand in December. This is just reward for the significant efforts put in by the players in what has been an extensive club sevens program and a testament to the ground work of Director of 7s Kruger Roache and the sevens program coaching team.
The club places a serious emphasis on the sevens format to ensure we are able to offer the opportunities the format delivers as an international and Olympic sport to our players, at the same time seeing the benefit in various skill components to compliment and benefit our XVs programs.
Congratulations to Dietrich Roache, Jordan Williams, Nic Benn and Norwin Latu on what is a magnificent achievement. The club is extremely proud of your efforts and commitment to the club.
The Two Blues are pleased to welcome home two names synonymous with the club in Andrew Cox and Tom Woods who will take the reigns of 4th Grade in season 2020. This is an exciting time for the club with both men returning and the construction of the new Granville Park facility due to commence early in 2020. We look forward to Andrew and Tom leading the clubs 4th grade side.
The Two Blues Sevens Program is going from strength to strength under the leadership of Director of Sevens Kruger Roache and coaching team of Waisale Qalulu, Mohd Roache and Lenny Rarawa.
The 2019/20 program has an extensive schedule that has seen the squad compete across New South Wales including Byron Bay 7s, Maitland 7s, Western Sydney 7s through to the Hottest 7s in Darwin and currently the Premiership Spring 7s with the World School 7s in New Zealand and Fiji’s Coral Coast Sevens looming large on the calendar.
The squad won the Buff Final (plate) in Darwin and finished runner up in round 2 of the Spring 7s in a heartbreaking Golden Point Extra Time Loss in the Cup Final.
The program is exposing the squad to the Rugby Australia and New South Wales Talent ID staff with a number of the boys on the radar for higher honours. We are anticipating some exciting news in coming weeks.
There are several tournaments to go before Christmas and then again to start the new year before the boys head into XVs season rearing to go.
The squad a real mix of youth and experience with several colts within the squad, which is really building into a unit that will continue to improve and provide opportunity for the club, the squad and the boys individually.
