The next HOT challenge for our Year 7 Marsden Mako Pups is on the horizon with the inaugural Padua College Gala Day locked in for Thursday, April 26, 2018.
Fresh from our school’s nail-biting 10-6 win in the Tonie Carroll Cup over a gallant Alex Hills SHS and a narrow victory over a skillful Palm Beach Currumbin SHS side in March, our ‘Mako Pups’ will no doubt be keen to continue their unbeaten run in 2018.
In Week 2, Term 2, games involving south east Queensland’s elite rugby league high schools including Alex Hills, St. Mary’s, Redcliffe, Ipswich, Wavell and others will kick-off on the picturesque Padua College fields in Banyo (See pictured right), a suburb in northern Brizzie.
Like the TC Cup in Beenleigh, the Padua Gala Day’s format caters for both ‘Advanced’ and ‘Developing’ school league programs with 2 pools of teams in action on the day.
Just as we did in the TC Cup, Marsden has entered a 2nd team to compete against the likes of Mabel Park SHS, Caloundra SHS, Padua College and others in Pool B with Mr Gleode’s talented Makos ‘B’ side again hoping to impress.
Mako Teams will be announced at the Year 7 Squad’s training session on Friday, April 20.
Sports Medicine will be available on the day and a canteen will be open for refreshments.
