Highclare U11 Rugby team play at the Sutton Schools Tournament

U11 Sutton Schools Tag Rugby – 22nd October

Highclare Woodfield and Highclare St Paul's took two teams to play a tag rugby tournament at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School. The focus was very much on learning the basics of the game and working together as a team.  Both teams were resplendent in their new Kooga rugby tops and they played as well as they looked. The ‘A’ team had a wonderful start winning their first two matches in tremendous style. They were very unlucky to lose the next two but recovered to win the next match before losing out to the eventual winners of the tournament. Overall we finished a creditable 4th.

The ‘B’ team played with pace and vigour scoring many excellent tries in the process. Their reward was a place in the final where they narrowly lost. However, they looked very proud as they left the pitch adorned with silver medals.  It was a very enjoyable tournament and a big ‘well done’ to all the children who took part.
