1st XV Rugby Reunion 2024

2004 1st XV Team

On Saturday 18 May, we had the pleasure of hosting over 50 Old Collegians at the Sports Pavilion for our annual 1st XV Rugby Reunion. This year, we were joined by teams and coaches from 1954, 1964, 1974, 1984, 1994, 2004, and 2014. The weather was a bit on the chilly side but nothing a few hot pies at half time didn’t fix.

We were delighted to host three Old Boys from the 70 Years On team, Euan Hilson (OC 1954), Buddy Shirley and Don Davison (both OC’s 1956), who enjoyed mingling with some of the younger guests. The teams from 1964, 1984, 1994, and 2004 had a strong presence this year. Twins, Robert and David Le Lievre, (OC’s 1994) returned to celebrate and participate in the humorous post-match re-enactment of their Collegian rugby photo.

Regrettably, our StAC boys fell short in the final moments of the season’s opening match against St Bede’s College. The game was closely contested with a final score of 18–21. However, we all concurred that rugby, old friends and hot pies were the true victors of the day.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our Old Boys who travelled from various parts of Australasia to reconnect with their teammates and contribute to making this another memorable occasion for our Old Collegians Rugby community.
