Grammar Hosts Papua New Guinea Rugby Team for Dylan Daure Memorial Match
Sunshine Coast Grammar School 1st XV will play the Papua New Guinea Development Team at 3pm this Saturday (September 20).
This is the second year the teams have played for the Dylan Daure Memorial trophy. Dylan was from PNG and his family retains significant links to the country.
The former Grammar 1st XV player died tragically in 2012. Grammar coach Dan Robotham said the match was a celebration of Dylan’s life and a tribute to what he stood for — mateship, embracing new cultures, and the spirit of competition.
“Dylan loved playing rugby for Grammar,” said Robotham. “He epitomized all the great things about rugby and the way he approached the game was a true reflection of his great character.
“Dylan always gave his best. He was extremely dedicated and never looked for praise or accolades. He was the ultimate team player and always put his teammates first.
“Despite making many representative teams he loved nothing more than playing for Grammar – as nothing could beat playing and standing shoulder to shoulder with is brothers – that was Dylan.”
