Sydney University Rugby League maintained their lead in the NSW Tertiary Cup competition when they accounted for UTS Tigers 26-22 in a recent top-of-the-table clash at St. John’s Oval.

Fielding a mix of youth and experience, Sydney University produced an entertaining brand of football which has them moving towards premiership favouritism.

“We have a really good set-up here at Sydney University with the guidance of our first grade coach Jim Pizanias, who has moulded our team into a genuine force this year,” First Grade captain Daniel Cusack said.

“The team is starting to believe they can give this competition a shake.”

Coach Pizanias is also quietly confident. “With five rounds remaining we are in with a great chance to take out the minor premiership,” he said.

The NSW Tertiary Student Rugby League is an affiliated body of the NSW Rugby League, established to promote the development of rugby league within universities, TAFE and other tertiary institutes within the state of NSW.

In this year’s competition, the NSW Tertiary Student Rugby League competition includes 12 clubs from Sydney, Bathurst, Canberra and Newcastle – making it one of the most geographically spread competitions under the NSW Rugby League.
