ACC: Students Retain National Title With Victory Over Easts in Brisbane

Queensland Reds Media Release - Easts Tigers have gone down in a tight tussle to Sydney University, 19-14, for the Australian Club Championship at David Wilson Field. The Tigers qualified for the Australian Club Championship match after defeating GPS 27-22 in last year’s Queensland Premier Rugby Grand Final, and led 14-12 at halftime against the reigning Champions, Sydney University. Despite the loss, Easts Head Coach Pat Richards was optimistic and was pleased with the team’s overall performance. “Overall I was happy with the team’s performance, it was a fast paced and intense match and we had a lot of players playing Premier Grade for the first time,” said Richards. Sydney University looked to test Easts early in the encounter, kicking for touch twice after being awarded consecutive penalties inside the Tigers’ half.
