Sydney University Football Club finished with the bronze medal in the 2016 Australian Club Championship with a dominant display against Queensland University at Crosby Park, Brisbane on Saturday.

SUFC ran out 47-26 winners of UQ to finish in third place, with Sydney’s Northern Suburbs Rugby Club defeating Brothers Rugby Club from Brisbane 27-5 in the tussle for gold and silver.

The Australian Club Championship has historically been contested by the winners of the premier competitions in Sydney and Brisbane. The concept received a boost this year with the inclusion of the two losing grand finalists playing off for third and fourth places.

With the Sydney Grade competition just a month away, SUFC players will have a solid pre-season preparation under their belts, including a match tomorrow (Tuesday) night against the Hindu Club from Argentina.

SUFC will host the tourists at the Football Ground, with the main game to kick-off at 7.30pm. Rugby tragics should arrive at 4.25pm to watch the first of three games on the program. Entrance to all games is free.
