2021 AIC Rugby Season Preview: St Laurence’s

St Laurence’s were undefeated in 2020 and claimed a shared premiership with Marist last season.

Coach Welmar du Plessis said his boys were desperate to play last year’s final but have a new found belief heading into a 2021 season that will begin with a match that should have been last year’s decider.

Overview with Welmar du Plessis:

“Everyone is really excited to get started this weekend. Obviously playing our big rivals Marist this weekend in round one is exciting,” du Plessis told Rugby News.

“We got started back in term four so we’ve been training with a big squad for quite a while now. That worked really well because all the boys have pushed each other and it created competition for spots.

“We narrowed that down a little in term one and I’m really happy with the squad we’ve got for the season ahead. There are some good year 12 boys and some exciting year 11s pushing through as well.
