Over the past weekend, SCOTS PGC hosted the Matthew Flinders Anglican College from the Sunshine Coast. Matthew Flinders brought 3 teams U13, U15 and Open age groups. The boys were accommodated in the boarding houses and this enabled many friendships to form over the weekend. The games on Sunday were played in great spirit but were tough and uncompromising.
Matthew Flinders U13 team showed great cohesion stemming from a full season of rugby and ran out comfortable winners. Hamish Swift was the best player for SCOTS PGC.
SCOTS PGC U15 team continued to show its class with a 24 -17 win. Toby Rozynski was the best on the ground for SCOTS PGC.
The Open game was a close affair with the lead changing several times. The final score Matthew Flinders 34 SCOTS PGC 32. Best player for SCOTS were Tom Winter, Mitch Mack and Charlie Brennand. SCOTS PGC looks forward to a return round of matches with Matthew Flinders in 2019.
