As the 2008 AAC season nears with the Arrive alive 7's kicking off next week out at St. Mary's, schools all around Australia can breathe a sigh of relief.
17 year-old Ben Jones has left school & will not be a part of the Matraville SHS defence of all their 2007 titles.

Jones will instead concentrate on his new full-time job as a roosters player in the NRL.
Playing in the Roosters Toyota Cup squad this season, Jones is hopeful that with some application he can pave his way into the big league before the year is out.
