Sydney Uni Football Club’s (SUFC)  Sam Carter, son of former Wallaby David Carter, has stepped up from the Colts program to be part of the winning first Grade side.

Carter joins four other colts including; Toby L’Estrange, Michael Hodge, Robert O’Reilly and former Australian Schoolboy Dave McDuling.

‘Standing 201cm tall, Carter seems to have inherited a physical toughness and an excellent work rate. McDuling at 203cm and 113kg, is quickly learning how to use his new size and power. Together, Carter and McDuling prove versatile selections on the field,’ said Director of Rugby, Greg Mumm.

ACT School Boys Hodge and L’Estrange have also made an impact on the first Grade team, with Hodge being awarded the Coaches’ 3 points subsequent to scoring his first try after a charge down against Warringah on the weekend.

‘Hodge will only get better as he develops physically and his skills continue to improve. L’Estrange has good acceleration and a strong passing game that make him a genuine threat in attack,’ said Head Coach Damien Hill.

Having a nervous start against West Harbour in Round 3, Robert O’Reilly has made his first Grade debut after starting with the Club in 2007. O’Reilly’s full of potential and with his increased confidence he delivered a strong performance against Warringah, scoring two tries on the wing.

In a 22 round competition, there is great potential for these young men and SUFC to continue to show great depth on the field as tough competitors.
