On the 18th April the Y8 girls rugby team went and competed at the North East of England rugby finals at Ryton Rugby Club, Newcastle. This tournament was one level away from the national finals and the competition was extremely fierce. Our first match of the tournament was against a school from Newcastle which was very tough and although drawing at half time we ended up losing eight tries to five. Our 2nd match against a Durham school we dominated from the start, showing outstanding passing and running ability when we had the ball and some huge tackles when we were defending. The academy won the 2nd match eight tries to three. Our final match was against a school from Northumbria. In the pouring rain we still showed outstanding skill levels and triumphed to secure 3rd place in the tournament overall. Girls rugby is becoming increasingly successful at the academy. We have two further tournaments before the end of the year. If you are interested in joining the club please see Mr Williams in PE.
