- The draw for the Leinster Schools senior rugby cup was done with the help of two Leinster players, Fergus McFadden a Clongownian, and Eoin O’Malley a Belvederian. Coincidentally Fergus drew Clongowes out of the hat, and Eoin drew Belvedere, so the two sister schools will meet each other in the first round, the winner possibly meeting Gonzaga. St Ignatius’ College, Riverview, among the best rugby schools in Sydney, travelled to Clongowes for the first match of their European tour. From a hard-fought struggle between what are arguably the best Jesuit rugby schools from the northern and southern hemispheres, Clongowes emerged winners by 39 points to 22.
