Hodgson has high hopes in 7s

RUGBY UNION: Under-13 Trinity College Rugby 7s coach Roger Hodgson expects his young players to pick up as much experience as possible in tomorrow's Fraser Coast Cup to be staged at Fraser Coast Anglican College in Hervey Bay.

Kodey Tappin, Hika Hodgson, Tama Hodgson, Trevor King, Malachi Tuakura, Jacob Harris, Rhys Chadburn, Jack Alexander, Ruan Meyer, Heath Lindenmayer and Kyle Whittingham will take part in Trinity colours in what will be three high-octane 14-minute games.

"The boys have been training hard throughout the beginning of this year to see if they can improve on last year's performances," Hodgson said.

"It's all about the experience more than anything else."
