.Fenwick vs. Mt. Carmel (March 23, 2022)
Downs Mt Carmel 43 – 0: Fenwick Rugby traveled to Mt Carmel to open the 2022 rugby season against the rival Caravan. This was the first league match for Fenwick since 2019. Fenwick dominated the game from the start, putting up 19 points in the first half, behind tries from Conor Paris, William Frech and Gustavo Linares, and two successful conversion kicks from Iain Ramage. The second half was no different as Fenwick put up another 24 points, with tries scored by Zack Jakaitis, Conor Paris and Aden Vargas, and conversion kicks by Zack Jakaitis and Ian Ramage and a penalty kick from Ramage. The defensive work by the Friars was stellar, with constant forward pressure giving Mt Carmel no room to develop any offensive flow.
