Cameron Clark, Olympic Games Rugby Men's Sevens Team
Mr ALISTER HENSKENS ( Ku-ring-gai ) ( 16:30 :17 ): Many people think of Ku-ring-gai as God's country and we all know rugby is the game they play in Heaven. I am pleased to report that one of Ku-ring-gai's own is about to embark on the journey of a lifetime, representing not only Ku-ring-gai but also Australia in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Knox Grammar School old boy Cameron Clark is part of Australia's rugby sevens squad about to compete at the games. Now 23 years old, Cameron made his debut in the green and gold back in 2012 and quickly made his presence felt, so much so that he was named in the World Rugby Men's Sevens Team of the Year in the 2013-14 season. Our team's job is a tough one in Brazil from the outset. It has South Africa, France and Spain in its pool group, the top two teams to advance, so it will have to be on form from the opening whistle. Australia has both men's and women's rugby sevens competing in Rio, so I know both teams will be giving each other huge support. Go hard, go well to the Aussie rugby sevens.
