‘Victorian Schoolboys’ rides again
The Victorian Schoolboys commenced its 2021 campaign last Saturday 17 April when 68 boys attended a skills and fitness test. On ANZAC Day the 40 ‘Possibles’ played an excellent trial match at Xavier College, Kew, before 28 will go forward to a training squad over the next 8 weeks.
Prior to the match an ANZAC Day service was held and the players observed a minute’s silence out of respect for Australia’s fallen in war.
The Victorian Schoolboys will play a series of matches against Academies in Victoria and matches against ACT Schools and NSW Schools teams in Canberra in late June.
Some ASRU selectors will attend these matches and name a representative team from the Interstate Series with an intention that an ASRU Barbarians team is named to play matches in September.
