Year 8 Rugby Festival

Yesterday evening our Year 8 Rugby team took part in a Rugby Festival at Ilkley Rugby Club.

Mr Swann reports,

The lads played well in all their matches and conducted themselves brilliantly. The team played 5 matches under floodlights at Ilkley Rugby Club with mixed results.

First they drew a close game against Salts. They then went on to score 9 tries and only conceded 1 against Guiseley. This game showed excellent contact skills and the boys dominated the game throughout with forceful running and competent tackling.

During their third game against a strong Oakbank team they fought back valiantly from 2-0 down to score in the last play to earn a 2-2 draw.

We then played Ilkley and Parkside with both games following a similar pattern. They were evenly matched games but unfortunately we lost 1-2 in both games. 

Overall it was a valiant effort and the lads are looking forward to resuming their competitive matches in the new year.
