CAS Round 3 v Mater Dei

The Senior Teams were on fire in our third round of CAS. The week's challengers, Mater Dei, fought hard, but we came away with five wins from five games. The Senior Girls' Touch Rugby team were challenged for the first time, and although shorthanded, they had a great win. The heat was the biggest obstacle, with all games played under modified conditions with extra breaks and plenty of hydration.
