A first for female rugby


Westfields Sports High School will welcome its first intake of female Rugby Sevens students in 2015 — the first dedicated program for young female rugby athletes.

Today, they will hold a Girls Discovery Day for year 6 girls with 12 to 15 spots in year 7 available for 2015. The event will be held from 4pm to 5pm at the school.

Rugby Sevens will be a part of the Olympic program in Rio in 2016.

Eagles fly high

Bonnyrigg White Eagles are starting to hit their straps in the National Premier League's NSW Men's Elite 1 competition registering back-to-back wins with a hard fought 1-0 win against Sydney Olympic.

Veteran Chris Tadrosse's free kick in the first half was enough to secure all three points as the White Eagles kept their sheet clean for the sixth time in their past seven games.

In other games, Marconi gave up a 1-0 lead to lose to St George 2-1, while Sydney United 58 FC were routed 4-0 by the Sutherland Sharks. It was bad week all round for United who were eliminated from the Waratah Cup last week.
