Marist College Eastwood’s Rugby and Football teams on tour.

Marist College Eastwood rugby and football teams have returned from a comprehensive sports tour of Europe – England, France and Italy – watching, playing and learning from the great.

The Rugby and soccer teams played other teams in London, Paris and Rome starting with the rugby group training with London-Irish and then watching the greatest upset in World Cup history when Japan defeated South Africa in an early pool match. The Football team had a training session with Chelsea then watched a Preston v Brentford soccer game.

Both teams had success in France, the rugby team won a trial match against a junior Racing Metro team 25-10 and the football team beat its sister school, Le Maristes Montalembert 2-0.

A cultural group of 12 other students travelled with the squad.
