Australia Clinches Sixth Universities World Cup Crown

The Australian Universities Rugby League Team are World Cup champions for an unprecedented sixth time after overcoming a gallant Pacific Islands Universities outfit 30-12 in the 2017 Universities Rugby League World Cup Final played at Pepper Stadium the western Sydney suburb of Penrith on Sunday evening.

In easily their toughest match of the tournament, the Australians were pushed to the limit by a gallant Pacific Islands team in a match worthy of a Final – before finally clinching a third straight Universities World Cup in the last 20 minutes to bring the 2017 Festival of World Cups to a fitting finale.

After both sides showed nerves in the early stages, the Islanders were able to work field position in the 12th minute for giant centre John Faiumu to burst through four defenders down the right hand blind side to score the opening try.  Robert Vai converted for a 6-nil Pacific Islands lead.

The Australians’ attack did not show the same sharpness than they did earlier in the for nearly the rest of the first half – as the defending champions continued to be bustled into nervous errors by the solid Pacific Islands defence.

Finally, with five minutes to play in the first half, the Australians held on to the ball for long enough to work a left side shift for fullback Jarrod Lee to score in the corner.  Mick O’Keefe missed the conversion from near touch to leave the Pacific Islands with a 6-4 lead at the break.

The Pacific Islands extended their lead four minutes into the second half when an Australian cross field kick on the last tackle from inside their own half was not cleanly picked up – allowing Islanders winger Marli Sini to swoop on the loose ball, step back inside the backpedalling Australian defence and score a neat opportunist’s try.

Vai’s conversion from wide out gave the Pacific Islands a handy 12-4 lead – allowing the large amount of passionate Pacific Islanders’ supporters in the good sized crowd to dream of a World Cup win against the odds.

After the Australians were able to work field position in the back of Pacific Islands turnovers and a run of penalties from referee Darian Furner, star centre Jamie Anderson got on the outside of his man down the right eight minutes into the second half – before bursting through three defenders to score a determined solo try to get the defending champions back into game.

O’Keefe landed the conversion from wide out to narrow the Pacific Islands lead to 12-10.

As the Islanders’ continued to be starved of possession through the middle of the second half, the Australians slowly ground their way on top.

From a repeat set after forcing a goal line drop out in the 54th minute, a grubber kick on the last tackle by Australian five-eighth Mackenzie Reid bounced off the upright into the hands of half back Ryan Cameron who scored next to the posts to give the host nation the lead for the first time at 16-12 after O’Keefe added the extras.
After the Pacific Islands put the restart kickoff out on the full, the Australians then upped the ante against the Islanders’ defence – putting on a shift through the hands down the left for centre Mick Pearsall to score his first try near the corner.  O’Keefe nailed the conversion from near touch to give the Australians a 22-12 lead.
The Islanders’ frustrations of being starved of possession in the second half from turnovers and penalties took its toll with 12 minutes left when half back Jesse Domic was sin binned for 10 minutes by referee Furner for dissent.

Against a tiring 12 man Islanders’ defence, the Australians then went in for the kill.  From the ensuing penalty, a sweeping backline movement left found speedster David Sheridan who dived over in the corner to wrap up the Aussies’ sixth World Cup title at 26-12 inside the last 10 minutes.
After both sides had chances in the closing stages, Pearsall put the icing on the cake with his second try in the final minute to close out the 30-12 Australian triumph.

Pearsall was delighted to be a part of the Australian win – and was quick to acknowledge how tough the Final was for the newly crowned champions.

“We didn’t take them (the Pacific Islanders) for granted. We didn’t think it was going to be a flogging. But, (considering) how comfortably we’ve done leading in – it was hard getting into an arm wrestle. That’s what we said at half time”, Pearsall explained to RLWC2017.com after the Final.
“We hadn’t been in an arm wrestle all tournament.  It’s just nice to know that when the going got tough, the boys were able to pull through and play good footy”, Pearsall stated.

The classy centre also put the triumph in the Final as a highlight of his rugby league career as he reflected on his own journey – via the Ron Massey Cup in NSW and the Intrust Super Cup Queensland – into being a World Cup champion.

“That good year back at Asquith in the run to the (2015 Ron Massey Cup) Grand Final is definately up there.  Then I flew the nest – and it’s been a tough couple of years to be honest.  So coming back and playing footy with a bunch of boys who enjoy it afterwards – it’s what it’s all about.  It makes you love footy again”, Pearsall said.
Australian coach Aaron Zimmerle pointed to his side’s second half performance and team spirit as the keys to their eventual victory in the decider.

“I thought we finished the game the way we should have – where we played some of our best football in the last 20 minutes.  Our comments (at half time) towards a game like this – where we know the opposition are physically very strong and talented – was to drown them with our possession,” Zimmerle told RLWC2017.com after fulltime.

“So that meant that we were to continually have more ball than them. So we made the goal not to chase points – just outpossess them.  The other thing we highlighted was that energy and extra effort was inj how hard you pushed for your (team)mate.  And in the last 20 seconds, we scored a try because we had people showing up (for their mates).  And that was probably the biggest difference – that they worked that little bit harder for each other”, Zimmerle said.

Zimmerle also called for Australia to use their status as champions for the greater international good moving forward.

“It’s all very well beating sides – as we should as Australia is a powerhouse of rugby league.  But it would be good to use that (status) to help coaching and development in places like Ireland, like Wales, like the Pacific Islands between now and the next (Universities) World Cup.  Otherwise, the other sides will be scrambling like they did this time”, Zimmerle concluded.

Pacific Islands coach Tony Puletua could only reflect on what might have been for his charges in their luckless second half – but did so with pride in his side’s fairytale run to a Final that looked impossible when called upon to replace New Zealand on the eve of the tournament.

“I don’t think we got through many sets – and played at the wrong end of the field – in that second half. You can’t do that against a quality side, and we were made to pay for it”, Puletua told RLWC2017.com in the wake of the Final.”

“I’m still so proud of the effort they put in.  I felt that we had a few tough calls against us through that game – and throughout the second half, too.  We couldn’t really catch a break there – but I’m super proud of the boys.  I’m proud of their efforts and they need to hold their heads up (high),” Puletua expained.
With a view to the future after adding such excitement to the Festival of World Cups, the 2003 NRL Premiership winner would certainly consider giving his guidance in future tournaments – especially with a longer preparation.

“We did this on the back of three and half weeks preparation to bring these guys together and gel them as a team.  It’s hard to that that in any competition. We weren’t given much in this tournament – but we just got on with it and I am proud of the boys that we got here (to the Final),” Puletua said.
“This has certainly sparked something in me.  I didn’t know what to expect, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it’s been a great journey.  We’ll see what happens in the future”, Puletua concluded.

The Final

​The big day has arrived and the Australian Uni Team is readying itself for the 2017 Uni World Cup Final.

The team has been dominant in its march to the final, winning its 3 pool games by big margins and winning its battle for a final place against a spirited England side in the semi final just two days ago.

The boys face surprise packet Pacific Islands in the final at Pepper Stadium, home of the Penrith Panthers, and despite comprehensively beating the islanders in their pool game a week ago, coach Aaron Zimmerle has left them in no doubt the danger they face this afternoon against a big and skillful side that has only gained in confidence as the tournament has progressed. It will be a much different opponent for the Aussies this time around.

The coach’s advice to the team is not to be overwhelmed by the occasion, soak in the atmosphere, play to the best of their ability and the Cup can be theirs.

The action kicks off at 4.15pm.

Australia too good for England in Universities Semi-Final

With star winger Jamie Anderson scoring a hat trick of tries, the Australians took their chances in key moments to qualify for Sunday’s decider in a match that was a lot closer than the final scores indicated.

After the English held the early advantage on the back of some early penalties without a result, Australia constructed a neat attack down the right side in the 10th minute for Jamie Anderson to score the opening try.

After being hit in a high tackle by English fullback Jacob Morgan when scoring the try, referee Ethan Mitcham ruled a penalty after awarding Anderson the four-pointer to give the Australians a possible eight point try. 

Mick O’Keefe missed the conversion, but landed the penalty from in front of the posts to give the Australians a 6-nil lead.

After Australian centre Mick Pearsall was penalised for being in front of the kicker when crossing to score a try in the 18th minute, England worked play upfield from the penalty to send play down the right side for five-eighth James Woodburn-Hall to score in the corner.

Ben Stead converted from touch to level scores at 6-all.

In a tight and tough first half, England earned a penalty in the 28th minute for a flop tackle against Australian forward Harry Pondekas.  However, Stead hooked the 30 metre penalty attempt out to the right.

After regaining possession, Australia worked play into position for fullback Jarrod Lee to send Jack Peoples away to score under the posts for a 12-6 lead with O’Keefe’s conversion.

Then just three minutes from half time on the back of a repeat set from a goal line drop out, the Australians worked play down the short right side for Mick Pearsall to score wide out for a 16-6 Australian lead.

Then almost on the stroke of half time, a Giovanni Rapana break up the middle was finished off by Anderson to streak away for his second try under the posts.  O’Keefe converted to give Australia a handy 22-6 lead at the break.

England came out with more purpose to start the second half and established great field position for interchange hooker Lewis Lord to burrow over out of acting half from close range and bring scores back to 22-12 after Stead added the extras.

However, an English turnover in possession allowed Australia to set up for Pondekas to burst over wied out on the right to score.  O’Keefe converted to extend the lead to 28-12.

England’s main opportunity to launch a comeback was lost when bench forward James Mason lost the ball over the goal line with a try on in the 59th minute. 

The Australians made the English pay when on their next set, a loose pass was swooped upon by speedy winger David Sheridan who bolted 55 metres to score the back breaking try.  O’Keefe converted to put the Australians out of sight at 34-12.

The English never gave up trying and after a cross field kick was dropped by winger Brad Kislingbury with 12 minutes left, they were rewarded for their endeavour when Lord got out of acting half on their nex attacking set to send centre Jason Bass on a determined 60 metre burst to score. 

Stead converted to bring the score back to 34-18.

However, the Australians were not finished yet.

First, Lee finished off a sweeping attack under the posts with seven minutes to play, before Anderson fielded a right sided cross field kick to complete his hat trick. O’Keefe converted both tries to complete the 46-18 triumph.

Anderson was under no illusions about the English challenge after the match.

“It was definitely a lot tougher this time around against England.”

They really did their homework and stepped up. I think the boys are very happy to get away with that”, the classy winger told RLWC2017.com after full time.

“We really had to dig deep because they gave it to us.  It was definitely a tough game – the toughest one we’ve had (in the tournament)”, Anderson concluded.

English coach Colin Baker again was left lamenting key moments in the contest.

“I thought the key period in the game was just before half time.” 

“In the last five minutes – just like in the first game (against them), we just switched off, and those floodgates sort of opened a little bit.”

I think that was the difference in the end”, Baker told RLWC2017.com after the match.

Australia will now meet either Scotland or the Pacific Islands in Sunday’s World Cup Final at Penrith’s Pepper Stadium at 4:15pm AEST.

Australia Uni too strong for Pacific Islands

Australia have made it back-to-back victories and cemented themselves as the team to beat in this competition, running away with a commanding 68-16 victory over the Pacific Islands on Sunday evening.
 
Holding onto a handy 28-10 advantage at the break, Australia’s power through the middle-third and the class of their outside backs couldn’t be stopped as they proved too strong for a gutsy Pacific Islands outfit.
 
David Sheridan put in a remarkable individual performance crossing for 5 tries, while Jamie Anderson and Mick O’Keefe put in quality performances of their own.
 
Australia got off to the perfect start as a quick shift down the left-hand side allowed winger David Sheridan to find some open space, with his speed too much for fullback David Cossone as he streaked down the touchline and crossed for the first try of the afternoon.

Australia were building nicely with their forwards laying a strong platform to allow for some threatening attacking raids, and they soon found themselves on the scoresheet once again as Chris Ostwald busted his way over to score back-to-back tries.

An error off the kick-off from Australia invited Pacific Islands straight onto the attack to redeem themselves with a quick reply, and a classy backline movement saw winger Kodah Karipa athletically cross in the right-hand corner for their first try of the game.

Robert Val was unable to convert from the sideline with Australia taking an early 12-4 lead after 15 minutes.

Poor handling from Australia gifted Pacific Islands a wave of momentum following their first try, and Kolea Like took full advantage as he barged his way over from dummy-half for their second consecutive try. 

An error in the ensuing set from Pacific Islands gave Australia the perfect chance to hit back after conceding two quick tries, with winger Mick O’Keefe capitalising on the early chance with his first try the afternoon. 

David Sheridan was proving a handful with his nifty footwork and sheer speed causing havoc for the Pacific Islands defence, and he soon found his second try as he burned through some poor defensive efforts to streak away for a brilliant 70 metre try.

Mick O’Keefe converted from right in-front of the posts to take a 22-10 lead just after 25 minutes.

Brimming with confidence and enjoying a large share of possession, Australia found themselves constantly threatening the opposition goal line with a well-constructed backline movement eventuating to their fifth try and to take a strong 28-10 lead into half time. 

Despite an array of handling errors from Pacific Islands, they were able to force their way back into the contest with as Kolia Liko made a bustling run through some tough Australian defence, but managed to get the ball down to give Pacific Islands a slim hope of a potential comeback.

Although fighting valiantly, their short burst of momentum was soon halted as David Sheridan continued his incredible showing – finishing off another clinical backline movement with a fighting finish before streaking away in the following set for his fourth try of the afternoon. 

O’Keefe again converted to take a 48-16 lead with just 15 minutes remaining.

Another well-executed backline movement saw Mick Pearsall’s name added to the scoresheet, with Sheridan scoring his fifth of the day as he pounced on a perfectly placed chip kick and cross right under the posts.

Some dazzle dazzle football from Australia saw Jack Peoples finish off a brilliant team try before Jamie Anderson scored remarkably right after full-time through some more broken down play to finish off a thumping 68-16 victory and have Australia sit firmly on top of the table.

Australian coach Aaron Zimmerle spoke confidently of his side’s performance but mentioned there is significant room for improvement for their upcoming fixtures.

“We were disappointed in our first 20 minutes – we were just lacking a bit of intensity,” he said.

“I think we showed a lot of respect facing Pacific Nations who are big and physical, and in doing so we didn’t come firing up the way we should.

“We gave away some cheap penalties but after the first 20 minutes i think the boys realised within themselves they can compete and we executed really well.”

Despite another heavy defeat, Pacific Islands head coach Tony Puletua spoke of his immense pride in the attitude his players.

“It’s disappointing but I’m really proud of the boys and how hard they fought,” he said.
 
“At the jersey presentation there was a lot of emotion and tears – it’s a great honour and everyone’s proud to be here and we’re looking forward to our next game on Wednesday.”

Australia fire on all cylinders against English students

In a match played with an intensity expected of the Cup’s two glamour teams, the speed of the Australians’ play at the ruck and with ball in hand – along with the rub of the green at times from referee Darian Furner – proved too much for the Englishmen to handle.

Australia dominated early field position and possession before finally in the 16th minute, Australian centre Mick O’Keefe burst through three defenders down the right hand side to score the opening try of the night.  He duly converted for a 6-nil lead.

After English winger Zack McComb had a try disallowed by referee Darian Furner for putting a foot into touch diving for the left corner, Australia extended their lead in the 24th minute when interchange back Kelly Benson beat a tackle before outpacing English fullback Jacob Morgan to score near the uprights.  O’Keefe converted for a 12-nil lead.

Australia scored the most spectacular try of the night five minutes later when Sam Gee burst clear up the centre from a short pass before he produced a deft inside grubber kick off his instep for Ryan Cameron to gather and send the final pass to Jack Peoples to score behind the posts for an 18-nil lead.

The speed of Australia’s play was starting to tell as Anderson made a long break down the right six minutes from half time, before wrapping around Jarrod Lee in support to score a superb long range try and a 24-nil lead.

Australia then shifted play down the left hand blind side in the last minute of the first half to send winger David Sheridan away for a 55 metre dash to score for a remarkable 30-nil Australian lead at the break.

Any hope of an English comeback was dashed in Australia’s first attack of the second half when a Cameron grubber kick in behind the nonplussed defence was easily picked up by Sheridan who raced 20 metres for his second try and a 36-nil lead.

After what appeared to be an Australian knock on in the 55th minute was ruled otherwise by referee Furner, the repeat possession saw Australian fullback Savern Rapana barge over through four defenders from close range to score for a 42-nil lead.

To their credit, England did not throw the towel in and on the back of three successive penalties with 15 minutes to play, worked field position down the right for James Mason to score in the 64th minute and Dom Bryan to score in the 72nd minute to get back to 42-10 with James Woodburn-Hall’s touchline conversion.

Australia were not done yet for the night – with another Anderson brake sending Lee away to score three minutes from time, before Mick O’Okeefe bagged his second try in the last minute to bring up the Australian half century of points.

Anderson told RLWC2017.com after full time that the defending champions came to their opening match to make a statement – and succeded.

”We were happy with the first game’s performance from all the boys”, Anderson enthused.

“It’s been a good (lead up) camp all week, and I think we’ve gone out there and proved a point.”

Meanwhile, English coach Colin Baker lamented his side’s first half performance.

“If we’re going to take something from that game, it’s the second half”, Baker told RLWC2017.com after the match. 

“We challenged ourselves to come out with an improved performance.  To some extent we did do that.  I do feel though we didn’t turn up – we didn’t turn up in the first half”.

Australia take on surprise opening day winners Pacific Islands at Windsor on Sunday at 4pm AEST in the battle of the first round winners, while England tackle traditional British rivals Wales at the same venue on Sunday at 2pm AEST.

Farewell Kiama

4 days in camp at the NSW south coast town of Kiama has ended and the team bus to take the boys to Parramatta for day 1 of the 2017 Universities World Cup has departed.

It has been a great time in Kiama, the boys have trained hard and played hard, enjoyed some fantastic weather, food and the accommodation & service at Sebel Harbourside was first class. The interest in the team from the locals has been outstanding and WIN TV has featured them (Chris Ostwald is now a TV star!!) in its news and the local paper also ran a story. The fellas have certainly done their bit to help promote the World Cup!

BUT things start in earnest today, a run at McCredie Park, Guildford in the afternoon shortly after which Coach Zimmerle will name his 17 to take on England in Game 1 Friday…… stay tuned.

Australia is one of the host nations for the 2017 Festival of Rugby League World Cups, with Western Sydney the base for the Universities World Cup which will be held from 5 to 17 July 2017.

The tyranny of distance and the cost of travel and accommodation has resulted in only 4 countries travelling to Australia to compete; England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and together with a team of expatriate students representing the Pacific Islands and the host nation, a total of six teams will vie for the 2017 World Cup honours.

Former NRL coach Matt Elliott is the Coaching Director for the AURL squad and Head Coach is Aaron Zimmerle from Tweed Heads Seagulls. Aaron has previously coached the Queensland (Cup) Residents team and the Canadian National Team. He is being assisted by Grant Stephensen who successfully coached the AURL team to victory in the 2013 World Cup in Leeds England.

The team will head to Kiama on 1 July for a 4 day training camp before travelling to Sydney on 5 July where it will be based in Parramatta for the duration of the tournament.

The Australian Team will play three pool matches:

  • Friday 7 July Vs England at St Marys Stadium – Kick off 6.45pm
  • Sunday 9 July Vs Pacific Islands at Windsor Sporting Complex – Kick off 4.00pm
  • Wednesday 12 July Vs Ireland at New Era Stadium Cabramatta – Kick off 2.00pm
