Lincoln surprise package in UC Championship • By Gordon Findlater LINCOLN COMBINED have been handed just their second defeat of the season as they fell to St Andrew’s College 58-18 on Saturday. While it could be seen as a 30-point defeat, it could also be taken as a remarkable turnaround when compared to the result from the same fixture two years ago, which saw Lincoln defeated 0-91. In previous years, Lincoln have been seen as easy beats. However, they proved that wrong with a 15-10 round 1 upset over St Bede’s College, which have won five of the last nine championships. Part of Lincoln’s rise this season could be put down to the inclusion of players from Darfield High School, Akaroa Area School and Ellesmere College, hence the name Lincoln Combined. For some of the boys that means a long journey for training, but new Lincoln coach Michael Wilson says everyone has bought into the new culture. “It’s been working really well. The boys all get along and most of them know each other from growing up through local club rugby, where they have played GO FORWARD: Prop Cam Jordan looks for a way through the St Andrew’s defence. against each other,” said Wilson. Lincoln put in a valiant effort on Saturday, but in the end were overpowered by St Andrew’s who put in a dominant display in their club day match. Lincoln face another tough test on Saturday when they travel to St Thomas of Canterbury College. The boys’ school have been unpredictable this season, but at times have shown they are capable of competing with any championship team and recently recorded their first win over St Bede’s in 34 years. •More sport, pages 21 and 23 Saturday 8 – Saturday 22 July 2017
