TSS RUGBY 2013

XV finished a very close 2nd in an exciting GPS Premiership, meaning
that 10 out of the last 12 years, TSS has either won or come second in the 1st

ground, the ‘Shark Tank’. It became such a fortress this season that every TSS
team to play at the Shark Tank was undefeated!

Ben Tapuai (1st XV 06 & 07) - received his
first Wallaby Cap at the first Rugby Test held on the Gold Coast
James Slipper (1st XV 06 & 07) – Stan Pilecki
medallist (Best & Fairest for the QLD REDS). Only the second ever prop to win
the prestigious award.
Nathan Sharpe (1st XV 94 & 95) - reinstated as
Wallaby Captain for The Rugby Championship and Spring Tour as well as being
John Eales Medal Winner (Best
& Fairest for Wallabies)
become the most ‘capped’ Wallaby
forward of all time. A fantastic year!
Ben, James and Nathan were also joined by fellow TSS Old Boy Wallabies Scott
Higginbotham, Robert Simmons and Luke Morahan when the Wallabies again utilised
the state of the art facilities here at TSS for a week long camp in the lead up
to their match vs Argentina.
