Fraser Coast Invitational Rugby 7's Tournament
The 11th annual Fraser Coast Invitational Rugby 7’s Tournament is to be held at Fraser Coast Anglican College, Doolong South Road, on Saturday 19th March from 9.00am with the finals to be played from 3.30pm.
Twenty-three teams of both boys and girls from Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Sunshine Coast, and Gympie have registered to participate in the carnival, many on return visits, having marked this event as a permanent booking on their Rugby Union calendar. Local Hervey Bay teams also competing include Fraser Coast Anglican College, Urangan State High School and Xavier Catholic College.
“The event promises to be fast paced with close to 50 games being played on Saturday.” said Fraser Coast Anglican College Director of Sport, Mr Leo West. “Rugby 7’s is played over two halves of seven minutes each with plenty of action guaranteed.” It is a fast and intense game making it ideal viewing.
Principal Leisa Harper added that she was delighted that the College was able to provide the facilities and to organise such a highly anticipated event again this year. “I encourage everyone to come along and support the local and visiting teams throughout the day.”
