The UWCSEA East Dragons U19 boys rugby team competed in the prestigious Singapore Cricket Club (SCC) 7s Schools and Colleges competition last weekend on the Padang in Singapore's Central Business District. Though the boys got off to a slow start on day one, they were able to pull things around on day two, making the cup final against a strong Tanglin Trust team. In the end they finished as Runners Up.
Notable performances must go to captain Hugh Goovarets, Liam Posthlethwaite and Alan Griffin. With a squad of only nine players after losing several senior players competing in SEASAC championships the same weekend, it was a fantastic effort from the squad.
Special mention must go to the parents who endured some very nervous moments throughout the qualifying rounds but shouted and cheered the boys on endlessly.
