St Aidan’s Catholic Primary Maroubra students were crowned Bob McCarthy Cup champions in front of a building Rabbitohs crowd at ANZ Stadium on Friday, May 22. They defeated Mascot Public School 16-12 in an entertaining Grand Final.
The Bob McCarthy Cup is a seven a side Rugby League competition open to boys and girls in years five and six at primary school. The St Aidan’s team has progressed through to the Legends Tournament to be held later in the year, after their victory in the 15-minute cup match.
The team includes captain Jack Lawrence, Jack Studdert, Jack McCaughan, Presley Jackson, CJ Booth, Billy Small, Damon Harsanyi, Edward Schilt, Will Riley and Jackson Cunningham.
It’s the second year that St Aidan’s have entered the competition.
Being crowned victors in 2015 is significant for the school, which is celebrating its centenary this year.
