Gonzaga College High School has been among the top high school programs in the country, year in and year out. Stars Rugby plays select side rugby and tours are arranged by its director Liz Entwhistle.
Gonzaga College High School Squad:
Peter Baggetta clarified for Gonzaga that the match is part of the club’s tryouts to see who will be selected for the top squad. Gonzaga has between 180 and 200+ players every year, so tryouts are held to determine which team a player starts the season on. Today’s match will be having between 40-50 players playing, so the team may be downsized from 80 who tried out to 50.
The unique aspect of this match, is for Stars Rugby U19s, it is a match, while for Gonzaga it is a tryout.
