AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS TEAMS ANNOUNCED FOR 2013 MACQUARIE BANK SCHOOLS TRI-NATIONS SERIES MATCHES TOMORROW

The Australian Schoolboys and Australia A team have been announced for the 2013 Macquarie Bank Schools Tri-Nations Series against New Zealand and Fiji.

The Series, on Australian soil this year, will see the Australian sides play two matches each against the visitors at Sydney’s Knox Grammar School.

Both Australian teams kick off their campaigns tomorrow, Tuesday 1 October. Australia A will start with a clash against New Zealand at 12:30pm before the Australian Schoolboys take on Fiji at 2:30pm.

The Series continues at Knox this Saturday 5 October with Australia A against Fiji, followed by the highly anticipated final match between Australia and New Zealand.

Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Schools Rugby Union, Andrew Elliot said this year’s Series is set to deliver some thrilling Rugby following the opening 22 – 20 match result which saw the Fijian Schools XV steal the 2-point victory from the New Zealand Schools side at St Mary’s Leagues Stadium in western Sydney last Friday.

“The Fijian win over New Zealand last Friday evening has put everyone on notice. These are going to be very competitive and exciting Schoolboy internationals,” Mr Elliot said.

“This is the first time in Australian Schools history where the Australia A team will play the curtain raiser for the Test match.

“We are going to see the best forty-six Australian Schoolboys representing their country, many for the first time, which is always special for both the players and their families,” Mr Elliot said.

Members of the public are encouraged to support the Australian Schools teams during their Series campaign at Knox Grammar School. Entry is $5 for adults, with all proceeds going towards the Australian Schools Rugby Union.

The Australian Schoolboys and Australia A team for tomorrow’s matches are listed below.

About Dave

I totally love sport. Rugby, cricket and soccer, but my first love will always be rugby. Other than sport I write my own poems and other interestings articles. I also love cooking. A man of many talents. When it come to Cricket I'm a Cape Cobras, Kolkata Knight Riders and Proteas supporter. Soccer there is only one team and that is Man United and Germany internationally. Other than that I'm a loving father and husband.
