Archway School

Year 8 Rugby

The Year 8 Rugby team travelled to Dursley Rugby Club on Thursday 12th October to compete in the B team tournament.

     In our first game we played against Thomas Keble School, we started strong with Fin Bell scoring early to give us the advantage. After we began to look comfortable, the boys started to drop their performance levels and TK got a try to put them back in the game. We worked hard to turn it around and we were the eventual winners.

     In our second game we played Maidenhill, who we knew were going to be strong and the boys knew it would be a battle after losing to them weeks before in a friendly. Archway consistently made strong runs from the back and managed to be up by 3 tries early. Later in the game Maidenhill pushed on and scored 2 late tries to set up a nervy finish, we held strong and won.

     We knew we'd need to win our last game against Sir William Romney’s to be crowned B league tournament champions. The boys did not disappoint and won comfortably!
