Schoolboy Cup Live Stream: St Brendan’s v The Cathedral College, Dolphins Cup, Round 4

A crafty kick through to their flying winger has helped St Brendan’s claim a win on the final siren. Watch the REPLAYS.

Watch a full replay of St Brendan’s College v TCC (Cup).

A try on the final siren to flying winger Mataio Tapau-Bon stole a late victory for St Brendan’s after a back-and-forth slugfest against rivals The Cathedral College.

The flying winger showed his extreme turn of foot to scorch defenders and dive on a Tommy Green grubber with less than two minutes to go to seal an 8-6 win for the St Brendan’s side.

It will be a bitter pill to swallow for The Cathedral College, who had fought valiantly to repel their heavyweight rivals for most of the 60 minutes and had gone ahead after a scintillating sideline conversion from dummy-half Zac Bateman.

The rivalry between St Brendan’s and The Cathedral College is one of the biggest in Queenslajnd school footy and this match proved exactly why.

Both schools came out all guns blazing – with the two forward packs not willing to give an inch to their rivals.

But it was the individual brilliance of halfback Tommy Green trhat would break the deadlock, with the crafty no. 7 fooling the defence with a simple show-and-go before powering over the top of fullback Francis Darkin.

While it appeared St Brendan’s had broken the TCC shackles, the Rockhampton school refused to let them gain the immediate upper hand.

TCC seemed almost invigorated by going behind on the scoreboard, suddenly they hit harder and ran faster.

The Rockhampton nursery had to wait until midway through the second half to finally break through the St Brendan’s defence, but once they did, they looked almost unstoppable.

That was until the coll-handed Green found his flying winger in the final moment.

Preview: The Cathedral College sweat on star fullback’s fitness

The Cathedral College coaching staff will decide on the weekend if their flying fullback, Mutua Brown, will line up for the Round 4 clash in the Dolphins Cup on Tuesday.

TCC heads to Yeppoon to take on St Brendan’s College in the Cup at 5.30pm and the Dolphins Challenge at 4.30pm – and you can watch the action live on KommunityTV via this website.

Brown would be a welcome inclusion in TCC’s Cup line-up but he has had a demanding schedule in the past few weeks.

He starred for Queensland at the national secondary schools rugby league championships, earning national selection, and on Thursday night was in the Maroons under-19 side which went down to New South Wales.

TCC’s Mick Busby said Brown would be given every chance to play on Tuesday.

“We’ll assess him when he gets back over the weekend. Obviously, if he can play, it will be very handy for us,” he said.

TCC will be without several players who were injured at the recent Confraternity Carnival, where the team finished seventh.

Hooker Zack Bryce suffered a season-ending knee injury, Ernest Walker is out with a shoulder injury and fellow forward Zac Bateman is also in doubt.

Busby said they would be looking for big performances from Brown, second rower Jack Biles, centre Toby Bateman and halfback Curtis Seierup against Confro champions St Brendan’s.

“They’ll be fighting on and doing the best they can,” he said.

“We’ve just got to stay in the grind, try to match them in the middle and go from there.

“I don’t know what St Brendan’s side will be in regards to who they have or haven’t got but we have to try to make it hard for whoever we’re up against.

“We’re currently in the top four and we need one more win to secure our spot in that top four and hopefully that can happen on Tuesday.”
