It was a fantastic achievement for our school to qualify for the County Tag Rugby Finals this week. On Monday, Mr. Lockley and Mrs. Gosden took the team to Old Cryptians RFC to compete against the best school teams in Gloucestershire. It was a very warm day and the competition kicked off with having to play three matches in a row. Following a narrow 9-8 defeat to Cheltenham runners-up Charlton Kings (the winning try being scored exactly on the final whistle), the team completed a 7-5 victory over Highnam. This was followed by a physically aggressive game against Elmbridge Juniors and we lost 12-8. The matches resumed after a short break, and we went on to draw 6-6 with eventual group winners Churchdown. We also lost narrowly to Bisley (7-6) and Temple Guiting (8-6). Our team can be proud of finishing fifth in the group overall, and despite their brilliant efforts, they didn't quite do well enough to qualify for the semi-finals. After congratulating the group winners, we headed home, stopping off at McDonalds for a well deserved McFlurry! Congratulations to the entire squad for playing so well in such warm conditions and for not giving up. Mostly, well done for displaying great sportsmanship and being excellent ambassadors for our school once more.
Squad: Joel Hughes (captain), Reece Oliver, Jack Phipps, William Gosden, Louis Corless, Anna Bowes, Abigail Assheton, Jack Pates, Megan Townshend, Charlie Kendrick, Oisin Moseley & Alex Oliver.
