Our new Director of Rugby, Mr Bradford reports a great atmosphere with the year 8 and 9's yesterday at Rutlish. Both teams focused hard from the moment the match started right to the end. The year 8 result unfortunately didn't match the effort put in by the boys and even though they played some very encouraging rugby they found it hard to finish against a strong Rutlish defense. They managed a well deserved try in the last 10 minutes, the whole team effort was impressive to see. The year 9's also showed grit and determination and a positive start to the 2013/2014 season. Try of the day has to go to Telvin of the year 9 team, after receiving the ball in his own 22 he went on to out run and battle his way through 6 members of the opposing team to score directly under the posts. Man of the matches go to Kevin A for the year 8 game and Bosun A for the 9 game (despite being a year 8 himself!).
