Australian rugby sevens star Tim Anstee helps juniors at Hills Junior Rugby Union Club open day

Australian rugby sevens star Tim Anstee put Hills juniors through their paces on Sunday.

The former Hills and Dural player was on hand for the Hills Junior Rugby Union Football Club’s annual ‘come and try’ day.

Anstee, 19, made his international sevens debut in October last year, and has played 17 matches for Australia with six tries.

This included three tries in three-and-a-half minutes, one of the fastest in World Series history, against Scotland at the Sydney Sevens tournament earlier this month.

Hills Junior Rugby president Peter O’Farrell said Anstee arrived at the event from his mother’s birthday lunch, “which speaks volumes of his love for not only the game, but also of working to inspire and motivate the next generation of kids in sport”.

The Hills Junior Rugby Union Football Club is the oldest junior rugby club in the Hills. Last year it had more than 250 players from under-6s to under-18s.
