There are a number of sources of images and video we are collating from the wonderful CCXV v Forbes Old Boys event. We will keep adding to the Gallery as these become available to us. Also check out our Facebook page for many amusing highlights from the week-end.
The CCXV 2018 campaign got underway in early April in the prestigious surrounds of Royal Military College, Duntroon. Nine teams competed in the annual ACT Veterans Fools Day rugby carnival and a wonderful Canberra day saw some great action.
The CCXV take the field again on 28th July in Forbes under or game manager Rod Macqueen AM, against the Forbes Rugby Old Boys. Player profiles, sponsors information and our new Spotify playlist are all detailed/linked below, so check it out. More to come for the Forbes event. And we are also now on Instagram and Twitter - so please follow and share our activity.
It all began in June 2017 when the Cooma Old Boys took on the might of the CCXV in their inaugural game on a full card at Rotary Oval. The game was preceded by a Gentlemen's Lunch at the Alpine Hotel, enabling the team to ensure they were sufficiently hydrated prior to the match.
Training camp reports in the week leading up to the game provided insights to the elite training and commitment of the team. On the big day, captained by Nick Farr-Jones the CCXV took to the field to the roar of the crowd. The half time team talk was delivered by Peter FitzSimons accompanied by a round of port.
A raucous evening back at the Alpine Hotel with a boat race won by Cooma and a very well supported auction of the team jerseys rounded out a superb day, with an excellent outcome from the generous donations.
