The second Fair Go Cup Rugby Sevens competition was run on Saturday 12 March 2016 at Rat Park, Warriewood. The successful event, organised and run by St Augustine’s College, Brookvale, was attended by 16 teams including a Lloyd McDermott Development Team comprised of indigenous players and teams from John Paul College, Brisbane and Daramalan College, Canberra.
The first grade competition was won by Oakhill College, Castle Hill for the second year running whilst the second grade competition was won by Redfield College, Dural.
Each year we run football carnivals promoting acceptance and reconciliation for marginalized and indigenous youth. The Fair Go Cup brings together teams of young people from vastly different cultural backgrounds and locations. We hope that by bringing a diverse mix of young people together to play footy that today’s indigenous and non-indigenous youth become a new driving force to create greater equality and understanding in Australia.
Our thanks to St Augustine’s College for their highly professional organisation and running of this event and to the various teams for their participation and the high standard of play. We look forward to next year’s event.
The 2016 Fair Go Touch Tournament Cup will take place at Villanova Park, Wondall Road, Tingalpa, QLD in October.
