Barnard Castle Tait 10’s Tournament
The Year 7 squad travelled to Barnard Castle School on Sunday 16th October to take part in the prestigious Tait 10’s rugby Festival.
On a very wet, cold and windy day the boys played some incredible rugby, narrowly losing out to Festival favourites RGS Newcastle before defeating Austin Friars Prep School, Dame Allans Prep School and Sedbergh Prep School. The boys finished a respectable 6 position out of 16 teams which is a superb result for a squad of boys, for whom rugby union is a new sport entirely.
Thanks must also go to the parents and supporters who travelled the long journey to support and encourage the boys in dreadful conditions. The coaches we very proud of the boys efforts, particularly in the manner in which the boys evolved and improved during the course of the Festival.
