Sports Report - Year 9 rugby vs Haygrove
The year 9 team travelled to Haygrove this evening for their second game of the season.
Plagued by injuries, pull outs and no shows the 15 that made themselves available (including 3 year 9 debutants) and the two extra year 8s taken from training after school to play, did battle against a strong and well organised Haygrove side.
It was clear from the outset that this would be a huge task and the team battled bravely as Haygrove went over the line several times in the first half.
The belief and determination never faded throughout the game as wave after wave of Haygrove attacks came at the defence.
Huge credit to the boys for their resilience and determination throughout the game, I was proud that they never gave in. A head scouting coach from Bristol Rugby Club came to me and remarked how impressed he was with the boys that they never gave in which was great to see.
Work to be done before games against Blake and Brymore after half term but the boys are keen to put things right.
