70 POINTS IN 70 MINUTES–RAMPAGING AUSSIES PLAY RUNNING RUGBY ON INDOOR SURFACE

The Australian Schools and Under 18 Team defeated a Scottish Schools Selection 70-0 in a riot of running rugby.

Again the very strong defence of the team was an important factor in this good win.

The Aussies forwards set up a good platform over and over again with penetrating drives, getting the opposition on the back foot, but opening up the backs with the opportunity to use quick hands and great support play.

One highlight was the scoring of four tries by winger Brendan Jiminez–one of which was a spectacular run from deep within the Aussies half–demonstrating the truism that Rugby is a game of avoidance, not of  collision– as he stepped both sides of his many attempted defenders.

The team has come through with no injuries– so that all players will be available for the Test on Sunday.

The tour concludes with the Test against Scottish Under 19s on this Sunday.

They will be much more formidable–having played, and losing only narrowly, to Welsh Under 19s recently

Today’s game should now, or very soon , be available on –rugby.com.au
