As the season closes out, a reflection on the Brisbane Boys College rugby team is in order. The school’s 2020 First XV faces one of the toughest seasons in its history. They will take on the unbeaten Nudgee College in the new GPS competition. The school’s defence is under immense pressure, and it is the Year 12’s and seniors that provide the next generation of players with inspiration.

The BBC break their century-long losing streak and return to Toowong to celebrate a memorable year. The Old Boys community is abuzz with excitement, as the team clinches its first title since 1899. This is a fitting farewell to the school’s illustrious rugby history. In the years to come, BBC will be looking to make a name for itself in the state and beyond.

The BBC fields seven teams at various levels, from under-11 to varsity level. Former UQ rugby player Jono Vautin coaches the BBC junior school rugby team. The school’s affiliation with UQ is unique – UQ is not used by all schools. The club, however, is a vital part of the school and has a long history of coaching athletes. This connection allows the school to field a full rugby team for the whole school, from beginners to elite players.

Aside from the rugby teams, the school is also very successful in sports other than rugby. The school has produced 14 Wallabies representatives and a State of Origin player. Six players compete in the Australian Rugby Union league. In the last decade, the school has won several GPS Premierships, and their volleyball team has been the most successful. While the GPS Association does not recognize the team’s tennis teams, it has acknowledged its excellent program by naming it the Most Outstanding School.
