Year 7 Rugby

Tougher Mudder Rugger.

The Year 7 rugby team produced an impressive win against Barry Boys yesterday, in their third ‘Gold’ league fixture of the season. The final score was 12 – 5, with all players continuing to play well, and following on from a great training session and turn out last week.The conditions the game were played in were challenging to say the least, with the boys coming off the field after the game covered from head to toe in mud!

Having to pick a man of the match was an impossible task, with so many boys playing well.Cully Field, Finn Ball and Cai Hopkins all scrimmaged extremely well to produce a brilliant platform to work off. Josh Hamner ran hard, breaking through a number of tackles and gaining a lot of yards.Cai Wardhaugh, Dan Heselton, Thomas Lyndon-Evans and David Heard worked tirelessly in defence, stealing the ball and creating countless turn-overs throughout the game.Archie Lloyd provided lovely service to his fellow backs, with Morgan James and Matthew Cooper bursting through the middle.James Murray and Kyle Smith also worked well in attack, cutting the angles, and getting plenty of space on the wings.Will Harris also put in a strong performance, kicking one conversation and making a number of weaving runs through the defence.

The tries were scored by Cai Wardhaugh and Josh Hamner, but the ‘Man of the Match’ went to Cai Wardhaugh for his outstanding tackling, turnovers and organisation of our defensive line.

Well done again Year 7, you are all developing as individuals, but more importantly as a team.Keep up the hard work, as there are more games to come!
