Last week our Rugby 1st XV played strongly to record another win against the top of the table leaders Iona. They are now placed equal 1st. A positive result this weekend would see St Patrick’s record our first ever win in the 1st XV premiership. Football 1st XI played in the premiership deciding game against Iona, in what was an exciting game of Football, Iona unfortunately won 2-1. The Football team although upset with the result, can hold their heads high in putting up a tough spirited effort. Sport can be very cruel. Our 1st Footballers need to win on Saturday and a result to go their way to finish premiers. We need a big crowd of support at Padua to cheer on all teams, especially both 1st teams.

Basketball and Tennis sign-on has now been completed for Term 3 sport. Student attendance at Basketball trials will be very important to give students the best possible opportunity to be selected.

The Track and Field sign-on process has remained open as students are currently being recruited once the Rugby and Football school and club programs wind down. St Patrick’s will nominate five teams per age group to compete in the AIC competition as most other colleges only play A-D teams. Unfortunately, on the sign-on numbers, some students will miss selection.
