Year 8 Rugby Tournament

Our Y8s travelled to Gravesend’s yesterday to compete in the annual St John’s Rugby 7s ‘Colm Murphy Cup, coming away as runners up in the tournament.

We played 4 games in the group, beating St John’s 5 tries to 2, with Tim and Will scoring a brace each and Lucien getting the other try. Next up we faced St John Fisher, winning 4 tries to 1, with Will scoring another brace and Tim and Brooklyn getting a try each. In our third game we come up against Ursuline in a South East Kent Derby, coming away with a 4 tries to 0 win. This was arguably our best game as a team, with immense defence shown throughout. Will once again score a brace, with Tim and Lucien scoring the other tries. Tim made one of the best try saving tackles I’ve ever witnessed in this game and had all the crowd congratulating himself afterwards!

Lastly, we come up against St Columbia. Sadly we went against our game play and play into St Columbias game, coming away with a 4-1 loss. But Tim coming away with another solo effort.

This meant we would play St Columbia in the final. The boys listened to the prematch instructions and tackled St Columbia’s big runners, showing a massive improvement on the previous game. We ended up losing the game 3-0, but showed much more spirt and a will to win, with everyone commenting on how brave the boys were.

Big shoutout goes to Miss Marsh, who was our driver/first aider/assistant coach who allowed the boys to travel and compete!!
