Tag Rugby South Downs Finals

23rd April 2015
Our magnificent Year 5/6 tag rugby team took to the field at Eastbourne RFC today, to battle it out amongst the very best schools from across the South Downs district. Be began with a fiercesome encounter against the mighty Wallands, which was a fantastic game, and we came out on top with a 5-4 victory! Next, we faced Laughton, whom we beat 3-1, before drawing 3-3 with Polegate. This meant that we finished top of our group and now faced a quarter-final match aganist The Haven. We played some of our finest rugby in this match and won 5-2 - a magnificent effort! Our semi-final clash was aganist South Malling, and in what was a very close encounter, we were very unlucky to lose 5-3. It was a fantastic afternoon's rugby and the team can be extremely proud of their performance. The team was (tries scored in brackets): Ciaran Quigley Cpt. (4), Hannah Wright v.Cpt. (1), Freddie Boorer (3), Emma Durnford, Lucas Richardson (3), Jayden Vincent (3), Sonny Last (3), Reece Marten (2), Sam Lusted, Kieran O'Brien and Abbi Halsey.
