Warriors fight back
7 Bde soldiers take out the Gold Coast women’s rugby sevens bowl competition
THE rugged rugby women of 7 Bde
crushed the Tongan and Cook Islands
national teams to win the bowl com-
petition at the 2014 Gold Coast wom-
en’s rugby sevens competition.
The 7 Bde women defeated the
Tongan women’s national sevens side
24-14 to claim the bowl competition at
Albert Park, Broadbeach, on October 12.
Australian Rugby Union (ARU)
development team members Cpl Lucy
Lockhart and Pte Georgina Smith played
key roles in helping 7 Bde to make the
bowl grand final.
Cpl Lockhart, of 2CER, and Pte
Smith, of 2RAR, were also two of the
eight soldiers who helped the Australian
Services Rugby Union Women’s
(ASRU-W) Warriors reach the grand
final of the 2014 Byron Bay Sevens’
Championship the following weekend.
Playing halfback, Cpl Lockhart was
outstanding in attack and defence in the
Cpl Lockhart said the 7 Bde women’s
team was sensational in the Gold Coast
sevens competition because each player
dug deep to perform at a high level.
“For such a talented and inexperi-
enced team to come together at short
notice and win the bowl competition is
a credit to our determination, sportsman-
ship and commitment to each other as
rugby players,” she said.
“We had a really good bunch of girls
who played to the team strengths, and
didn’t rely on one person’s individual
Team coach Capt Ash Naughton
said the 7 Bde team put in a great effort
against a number of tough and experi-
enced sides, including the Samoan and
Tongan national teams.
“The finals for the bowl were tough
for the 7 Bde side as they were up
against two of the biggest and toughest
oppositions on the day in the Gold Coast
sevens competition,” he said.
“The girls played the Cook Islands in
the semi-finals and were pushed to their
physical limits by a very big and tough
“It was a credit to the courage and
toughness of the 7 Bde women to come
away with a good 12-10 win.”
Cpl Lockhart and Pte Smith were
both injured in the match against the
Cook Islands and watched from the
grandstand as the 7 Bde rookies came
of age with a great 24-14 victory in
the grand final. Cfn Sheena Sidon, of
7CSSB, stepped up as the new captain to
steer the team to an upset victory.
Cfn Sidon’s excellent form in the
Gold Coast sevens resulted in her inclu-
sion in the ARU Aussie Pearls develop-
ment team, which may lead to a contract
to play in the national women’s sevens
Cpl Lockhart also starred in the
Byron Bay sevens, but not even her

speed and talent with the ball could pre-

The Warriors were among 14 teams
that played at the Byron Bay recreational
grounds during October 18-19.
Cpl Lockhart was well supported
throughout the campaign by Pte Smith
(vice captain), Cpl Trudy Cahill, of Ross
Island Barracks, Cpl Christie Robinson,
of 3CSR, Cfn Sheena Sidin, of 7CSSB,
Pte Salesia Navuetaki, of 1 Avn Regt, Lt
Gabrielle Taylor, of 1 MP Bn, and Spr
Kate Corsham, of 1 Int Bn.
ASRU-W team manager Flt-Lt Esther
Suh said for a team that came from all
over Australia for only two training ses-
sions, the players did a fantastic job to
qualify for the grand final.
“The Warriors were only beaten by a
national squad whose full-time commit-
ment is dedicated to rugby union, which
speaks volumes of the talent we currently
have within ASRU-W,” she said.
The ASRU-W Warriors kicked off
their campaign in the Byron Bay sev-
ens with a 46-0 trashing of the Doggies,
followed by a 38-0 demolition of the
Stingrays and a 25-12 defeat of the NZ
On the second day they beat the
Hooters and the Stingrays to earn a berth
in the final against the Samoan team.
Flt-Lt Suh said these competi-
tions served as a selection guide for
the coming ARU National Sevens
“This would be an opportunity for
more Warriors to be selected for the
national team and to follow in the foot-
steps of Army’s Cpl Mollie Gray, Capt
Caroline Vakalahi and Capt Alisha
Hewett, as well as Air Force’s Off-
Cdt Rachel Crothers and Cpl Brooke
Saunders,” she said.
