Inter-house Rugby Tournaments

This week saw the conclusion of our touch rugby modules in PE.
Friday, March 16, 2018
Students from Year 3 up were able to showcase their progress and talents in our annual inter-house touch rugby competitions.
In year 4 and 5, students play a modified version of touch rugby, known as turbo touch. On Monday afternoon, after a round robin group stage, the Vikings defeated the Saxons to be crowned primary inter-house turbo touch rugby champions.
On Wednesday, it was our senior school students’ opportunity to showcase their prowess, with our Year 6 and 7s competing over 2 hours in the early morning. From Year 6 onwards, students played regular touch rugby. The final was a repeat of the opening game of the competition, Romans v Normans, which the Normans won. However, Romans won the final and clinched a narrow victory. 
Upper senior school students participated in their competition in the afternoon. Games were very competitive but after the group stage it was again the Romans and Normans who had progressed through to the final. Romans raced into an early 3-0 lead, before the Normans demonstrated true determination by pulling back three tries and then a fourth to take the lead with two minutes to go. The Romans then fought back, scoring two tries in the last two minutes to clinch victory and a double Roman victory in the lower and senior school competitions. A thrilling final.
Well done to all our young rugby players this week, next week we will be starting our athletics.
