Queensland Primary All Schools Touch Tournament

Over the weekend, students competed in the Queensland Primary All Schools Touch Tournament, hosted by the Redlands Touch Association. Both boys and girls teams showed continued improvement and impressive teamwork throughout the tournament.

On Saturday 4 November, the boys' team, coached by Tait Rolfe, finish the day with two losses and two convincing wins. Throughout the day the team played well together to score some amazing tries and defend some tough competition.

Led by Kaden Arnold, the girls' team kept improving with each game, gaining confidence and becoming more competitive. Their spirits grew after a draw against Unity College in their third game, and the excitement was shared by all after a convincing win in their final game of the day against Stretton.

Both the boys’ and girls’ teams secured the third position in their respective pools and qualified through to the ‘Palte’ Finals.

On Sunday 5 November, the girls' final match was a nail-biter, with both teams giving their all. In the end, the girls narrowly went down 1-0 but left the field with their heads held high, knowing they had given it their all.

The boys' team managed to advance to through to the quarter final, after a convincing win against Cleveland B. After torrential rain postponed the tournament for well over an hour, the boys’ adapted to the conditions as best they could, however eventually lost in a 3 on 3 drop off. Despite the disappointment of not progressing through to the semi-finals, the experience gained from this tournament will put them in good stead for future competitions.

Our Brumbies showed great dedication, teamwork, and sportsmanship throughout the tournament. Congratulations to both teams on their great performance and a huge thank you to Dean West, Kate Lawrence, Tait Rolfe and Kaden Arnold for coaching the teams.
