Both the Y8 and Y9 girls rugby teams have qualified for the North of England rugby finals representing Redcar this week. Playing the best teams from Middlesbrough, Stockton, Darlington, and Hartlepool the Y8 girls finished 2nd overall to qualify and the Y9 girls finished undefeated from their games being hosted at the Darlington Northern Echo Arena.
Students will now turn their attention to the North of England finals being hosted in Newcastle on Wednesday 3rd April. The winners of this tournament will have the opportunity to play at Twickenham Stadium, London as part of the Army vs Navy game.
Girls rugby continues to grow at the Academy and we are now trying to link with our local rugby club. Redcar Rugby Club are hosting a girls taster day at the club during the Easter holidays. The session is free of charge and depending on interest there will be the potential to start a regular team. Please see the details below. For further information please contact Mr Williams in PE.
