Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 11 Hansard (Tuesday, 24 September 2019) . . Page.. 3804 ..

The under-13s had a great season. They spent the first half of the season in the first division, which was tough. They were up against some very good under-13s rugby teams that play here in Canberra. They then played the second half of the season in the second division, where they won every game and made it into the finals. They were defeated in the semifinal by one of the teams that came down from first division. They are a great group of young men who have learnt a lot this year about teamwork, courage, mateship, compassion, fitness and skill. I am sure they have enjoyed themselves and had a lot of fun along the way. We have certainly seen the spirit of rugby in evidence.

I would like to also thank the parents who have been out there, many of them turning up to training and many of them there on game day, on Saturday mornings.

I would like to particularly congratulate Tom as the best back, Robbie as the best forward, Jordan as the most improved, and Dane as players’ player—and all of the players that participated and played games throughout the year: Shay, Rami, Nick, Al, Callum, Oliver, Liam, Will, Dane, Tom, Robbie, James, Kit, Jack, Duncan, Rhys, Jordan, Matt, Isaac, Owen and Hamish.

Well done to the mighty Canberra Grammar under-13 rugby team. Well done to the coaches, Alex and Max. We are looking forward to another great season next year.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 3.50 pm.
