Allen credits Sydney Uni’s next generation for delivering Australian Club Championship victory
Sydney Uni skipper Angus Allen credited the club’s next generation for helping deliver the Australian Club Championships back to Camperdown for the second time in four seasons.
On a hot day in Brisbane, Sydney Uni scored 26-unanswered points in the final 30 minutes to defeat 2022 Hospital Cup premiers Wests 45-19.
“The first half was really physical. Wests have a really big pack so early on it was fast, physical and tough,” the stand-in skipper told Rugby News.
“It was also really hot up there and I think everyone was feeling it.
“In the second half, we got some fresh legs off the bench and we were able to get on top of them and earn the victory.”
With just three players from last year’s grand final winning starting side returning for the annual interstate fixture, Allen said it was the club’s younger players off the bench that turned the match.
