Reaching for the Green and Gold

27th October 2023

In the world of Schoolboy Rugby, it's not often that you come across a talent as exceptional as Sean Weir, a student here at Ignatius Park College, Sean recently made waves in the Townsville Rugby Union scene as he donned the green and gold to represent Australia in the U18 Rugby Union Schoolboys side during the September school holidays. With a remarkable performance, Sean left an indelible mark on the Rugby field, proving himself as a true rising star. 

The pinnacle of representing Australia is an honour few schoolboy athletes experience, representing their country on the international stage! In his first encounter, Sean faced off against the Australian Barbarians team, once known for strong competition. The match was an intense battle with spectators on the edge of their seats. In the end, though, the Australian team emerged victorious with a scoreline of 24 to 17. This victory set the stage for the test match against Tonga, and Sean again played a critical role in securing another victory for the Aussie team! The final scoreline between Aus and Tonga read 50 to 26, firmly establishing the Australian Schoolboys as a dominant force on the Rugby Field. 

The selection in this team is a testament to Sean's talent and hard work. As a community, we are proud of his incredible achievements and how he represents the College. We hope that other students look up to Sean as an example of what they can do when they set their minds to something. 

The College looks forward to seeing Sean continue his success in school and on the Rugby Union field. 

From the Iggy Park Community - Well done, Sean.
