South Sydney school, St Therese Mascot’s under 10s Division A team have been crowned New South Wales Rugby League All Schools Champions this week after the first day of competition in Western Sydney yesterday (Monday).
The local school won their division by downing St Paul the Apostle, Winston Hills, in a tight encounter by 24-18 at St Mary’s Leagues Stadium.

More than 1500 children and 100 primary schools travelled from all parts of the state – from Kingscliff and Kyogle, to Tamworth, Gerringong and Port Macquarie – for the biggest day of the 71st NSWRL All Schools Carnival.
The winning schools were presented their champions medals by former Test Captain, Brad Fittler at the conclusion of a jam-packed day that saw action played across five separate fields.
