A Rugby team that looked more like a professional outfit rather than a development side took to the field against the Barbarians at Campbelltown on Friday. It was a very hot afternoon to be playing Rugby with temperatures hitting low thirties at kick off. It wasn’t long into the game until the first blood was drawn through Jono Lance and from there the points continued to flow.
Moments before half time, the Barbarians forwards were able to lay the perfect platform for Tom Matthews to crash over and Henry Carmichael a great kick to convert his clubmans try. Gen Blue were able to clutch a 32-7 lead at half-time.
The second half began with another try to Gen Blue who had all the momentum from there. Gordons own Jack Dempsey was able to cross over in the second half for Gen Blue making it two tries, in two weeks for the Waratahs. The game finished with a 62 – 7 score line to Gen Blue.
As quoted by NSW Waratahs Website, “Scrumhalf Terry Preston, led the Barbarians well and with direction for the entirety of the match as he commanded his forwards and delivered good service to the backs”.
A big congratulations to Terry Preston, Tom Matthews, Andrew Chapman, Henry Carmichael and Jack Dempsey on competing in the game. A congratulations also to Gordon Club Doctor and Club Director Liz Swinburn for being named Match Day Doctor.
