King’s U15 players named in the tournament team at Condor 7s

Following a great performance by the King’s U15 7s team at the Condor 7s Maikel Tuala and Budda Doyle were selected in the U15 Tournament team. The Tournament team is selected by a panel of experts and recognises the best players in their respective positions across every team at the tournament.

This is a fantastic effort by these two players and a just reward for their hard work in training and their outstanding play over the two days of the tournament.

The King’s team played some scintillating 7s Rugby and recorded some impressive victories on their way to the Cup Semi final. On day one the boys were victorious against Tangaroa College 31-0, Scot’s College 28-17, and Manurewa High 17-14.

This earnt them a quarter final match against Kelston Boys which they won 17-7.

In the semi-final they were up against Hamilton Boys High. At halftime the score was close at 12-14, but an early sin binning cost the team dearly and Hamilton Boys ended up running away with it.

Overall the boys can be very proud of their efforts to finish in the Top 4 of the National tournament.
