What a performance from the Roma's Adelaide University rugby sevens team in the final tournament of the 2018 Aon National University Series!

In a sensational Bronze medal match, the home side and Sydney Uni battled it out in a replay of their round five matchup. Although the Roma's topped Pool B, Sydney Uni narrowly nabbed the win from the enthusiastic home side.

The Roma's incredible efforts at this tournament earned them its highest place yet and pushed them ahead by two spots on the overall series ladder to fifth. To defeat Macquarie University and Sydney University over the weekend indicates a year of continuous improvement for the team.

It was also great to see that the local rugby community, friends and family came to support the Roma's. Many tournament officials said it was the best atmosphere that they had seen all competition.

Many congratulations to all involved in the coaching and administration of the Roma's, with special thanks to Head Coach and Program Director, James O'Keefe.
