Claver clean up with double win
ST PETER Claver College secured an important win over Alex Hills in their Gee Shield campaign.
After mixed results in the opening rounds of the Broncos Schoolboys Challenge, St Peter Claver ran away with a 28-8 win in their top grade clash with Alex Hills.
In their earlier game, the St Peter Claver year 10 side were held to a 10-all draw by Alex Hills in the Devere Cup.
Tomorrow afternoon St Peter Claver College travel to Toowoomba to take on St Mary's College in both Devere Cup and Gee Shield games.
St Peter Claver College rugby league coach Todd Riggs said St Mary's would be a good test for his two sides.
"We've got no injuries and a few players who have come back," Riggs said.
"We are looking good and almost at full strength.
"We'll have both grades go away to Toowoomba against St Mary's who are travelling well. They are virtually the heavy recruitment school so it will be a good challenge for our boys."
