Tasman Rugby 7's Champions


The Garin U15 7's team had a successful tournament in Picton on Wednesday in the Regional Secondary Schools 7's Championships. This was a remarkable performance given that over half the Garin U15 squad is U14! After 4 matches, including wins over Marlborough Boys, Nelson College Quinns and Motueka HS, Garin qualified 1st in Pool B which meant a semi final against the runner up of Pool A Nelson College Country. Garin proved too strong for Nelson College in the semi final and then played Marlborough Boys College in the final where Garin won convincingly 28-5 with a patient and accurate performance. Garin's strong defense in the final was a reflection of their attitude on defense throughout the tournament as Garin only conceded 56 points in a total of 6 matches and scored 138 points. Congratulations to Aston Inwood who was captain and MVP for Garin leading by example throughout the tournament. Best of luck to this young Garin team who will be heading up to the Condor 7's U15's tournament in Auckland on the 30th Nov/1st Dec. Keep up the hard work!
