Cash Converters

The annual West Coast Pirates Academy v Combined Specialist Schools match was played last night at Curtin University.

It was a very physical 1st half being led by the CSS, great aggression in defence which caused errors in the Academy attack. CSS went into the break ahead 16-12.

A thrilling second half comeback by the Academy, there was only two points in it until the last 8 minutes. In front of a large crowd, the Combined Specialist Schools showed a lot of heart to make it a very nervous final 3 minutes.

As the full time siren sounded, the West Coast Pirates held onto a four point lead over the Combined Specialist Schools 28-24.

A terrific match, all players and staff should be proud of themselves.

After a gruelling opening training schedule, the 2015 West Coast Pirates SG Ball squad has been reduced to 26 players.

A high quality intra-squad trial match was played on Friday 12th December and all players were fighting to keep their spot in the squad. Coach Ryan Gundry said it was a “very tough decision” leaving some players out of the squad.

Congratulations to all players who have been selected in the final squad. To those that have missed out on this occasion, thank you for your hard work so far, don’t give up on your Rugby League dream, you can all hold your head high.
