St Laurence’s first XV coach Welmar du Plessis said his side won’t be getting ahead of themselves despite upsetting Marist Ashgrove 15-7 in the opening round of the 2021 AIC competition on Saturday.

Lauries fought back from 7-0 down, scoring back to back tries on either side of half time to set up the school’s first victory over Ashgrove in 13 years.

“It was a real arm wrestle, a very old school game of rugby,” du Plessis told Rugby News.
