On Tuesday 7th March our year 7 rugby team took part in a tournament against teams from Saltley and Hodge Hill.
Our team was full of boys who have been working tremendously hard at training and were keen to put their new skills to the test.
Despite coming up against some big year 8 students from the other schools our boys defended heroically making tackle after tackle, literally putting their bodies on the line to prevent the opposition getting past.
In attack, they showed great agility to dodge and weave their way through the opposition’s defence which resulted in some brilliant tries being scored.
Overall a fantastic team effort where hard work, skill and a lot of determination saw the boys win both of their games.
Well done to all involved.
Many thanks go to Yardley and District RFC for hosting the tournament and also providing the food afterwards. This club are looking to set up a junior section and have training on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings for anyone who would like to get involved with a great local rugby club.
