Saracens Tag Rugby Tournament

Congratulations to our Tag Rugby team who made it to the final of the Saracens Tag Rugby Tournament.

They played 4 games in the group rounds - winning 3 and drawing 1.

They won their quarter final against Oakview (4-2) which took them to the semi final.  This was a nail biting match which went to extra time and a golden try!  We won this taking us to the final.  Brookman's Park were a fantastic team and despite us playing our best, we were defeated.


Thank you to Mrs Jeffery, Mrs Irving and Mr Kelly for taking the children and supporting them throughout the afternoon.
