Coach believes Kelsey Breakers can be better

Even though Frances Kelsey’s boys rugby team beat Nanaimo District Secondary 55-7 last Thursday, coach Craig Schmidt thinks his team can be a lot better.

“I have been the head coach for five years at Kelsey and I see in this team that if the boys can commit to both training sessions each week that we can have some success at the provincial tournament next month,” he said. “We do not get full turnouts at practice each week and do not have a lot of depth so it is frustrating for fellow coach Jake Teufel and myself.

“If we can sharpen up our game over the next two weeks before playoffs, we will be a team to reckon with.”

The Breakers got off to a bit of a slow start against NDSS last week, but found their stride quickly on their way to the convincing victory. Unselfish leader and two-way stalwart Braemon Conville was selected as Man of the Match.
