Well done, lads!
The pre season fun and games started with two weekends of
OzTag, organised by Stewart Frew in conjunction with the SARU. The competition
was held in good spirit and all of the Old Collegians' teams looked fit and
keen to take line honours throughout.
However fine performances from Brighton and Burnside denied them.
A wonderful weekend culminated in a 3rd place for the U12s, 2nd place for U14s
and 2nd place for the U16s.
We look forward the Sevens on the weekend of the 20th April and then the first
match on Saturday 27th.

English to debut for the Rebels in Round 1 of Super Rugby
13 Feb 2013
RaboDirect Rebels Round One team announcement
12 February, 2012
The RaboDirect Rebels have announced their Round One side to
take on the Western Force at AAMI Park this Friday, with six debutants named
in the team of 22.
The match will open the 2013 Super Rugby Competition
here in the city of Melbourne, in what will be the biggest year in the
history of Rugby Union in Victoria.
Head Coach Damien Hill has called three debutants into the starting
line up, including Wallabies flanker Scott Higginbotham, relatively
unknown New Zealand flanker Scott Fuglistaller and former Western
Force centre Rory Sidey.
Higginbotham has fully recovered from a shoulder injury, which has
kept the dynamic backrow forward out of action since the Wallabies win over
Wales at Millennium Stadium in December last year.
has been under a cloud since his return from the Spring Tour, however the
High Performance Staff at the Rebels were quick to escalate Scott
once clear of his injury.
Partnering the former Super Rugby Player of the Year runner up will be
openside flanker, Scott Fuglistaller, after some impressive trial
form during the Club's Hobart and Geelong matches.
The New Zealand born Fuglistaller played two Super Rugby matches in
2012 for the Highlanders - covering for injuries late in the year - but is
best known for representing the Wellington Lions in the ITM Cup.
He is touted as the Club's dominate 'fetcher', with the ability to also
carry into contact, and he will bring a new dimension to the team with the
departure of 2012 openside flankers, Michael Lipman and Tom
The bench will see three new faces in Rebels colours, with former Stade de
France outside back, Alex Rokoboro, Sydney University
centre, Tom English, and Japanese international Shota
Horie all making their debuts from the reserves bench.
It is a reward
for persistence for Rokobaro, who played for the Rebel Rising in 2011,
before venturing to the European glamour in a quest to return to Super
Reds back Gill
