Sydney Uni Lions Players excel at NSW All-Schools Championships.

A number of SU players participated in the NSW All-Schools last Monday at Homebush. Our club was represented in CHS, CIS and CCC. I had the pleasure of refereeing and was really impressed with all our players and the way they went about their games.

 For the record:-

CHS - Lucas Mackaway

CCC - Oscar Douglas

CIS - Chaz Poot, Sean O'Shea, Byron Blaik and Harry Shaw

 CHS ran out winners after 2 very tough games against CIS and CCC. The CHS and CIS game was neck and neck until the final quarter.

 A HUGE congrats to Chaz, Harry and Lucas on their selection in the NSW All-School team for the Australian All-Schools. Also a HUGE  congrats to Sean and Oscar who were 2 (of 4) of the named reserves. It is worth noting that only 11 players were named in the team due to the new U20 rules.

 Goal of the day was scored by Chaz. It was a memorable chip and chase. On the 3m mark Chaz chipped the ball with his foot over the opponent, regathered and finished with a lob. This was scored in the tense CHS game and when the score was 0-1 in favour of CHS.
