U9s Rugby at St Leonards

On Wednesday the Under 9 Rugby Team travelled to St Leonards. We took part in a tournament involving eight schools. Our first match was against Lathallan. We tackled well and held our line. I was pleased to see many of the boys rucking over. The match ended in a three all draw. Our second match against Clifton Hall was hard fought. Both teams tackled well. However, in the last minute of the match Clifton Hall dashed up our wing and scored a try making them the match winners by two tries to one. Our third game was against Cargilfield. Their rucking was superior to ours and although we rucked, we were too slow to pass the ball out of the ruck. We lost this match four tries to nil. Our last match was against Craigclowan. We tackled well and both teams had scored two tries. However, two of our boys had a collision and were taken off. This resulted in Craigclowan getting ahead. The final score was 4 tries to 2 to Craigclowan. The boys had played some excellent rugby. Special mention should go to Joel and Struan who persistently drove into the opposition. (Mr Gibson)
