Valuable experience for our year 8 rugby team
Just before the end of term, Mr Roach took the Year 8 rugby team to Alderwood School for a tournament involving 6 local schools.
The team was: Jake G, Nathan P, Tom C, Theo S, James B, Isaac B, Rupert T, Jake H, Toby M, Connor L, Lucas H, Jack SC and Archie D.
We were scheduled to play 2 games and the first was against Wavell. The boys showed great communication, each doing their roles on the pitch to contribute to a 9-0 win. In the second match we played Courtmoor and we lost narrowly 4-1 but the boys played really well and they all said it had been a good experience.
Tries were scored by T Mac (3) Isaac (3) Rupert Nathan Theo Lucas.
As a team we hope to keep progressing and work on our rucks and communication to develop as a team. We are looking forward to more opportunities to represent Eggar’s School and to play against other school teams.
Our thanks go to the PE department staff, Mr Roach and parent helper Mr Vitoria for all their help and support with the team.
Tomorrow is Primary School visiting day at Eggar's. Bentley & Chawton friends will be with us. We take these visits very seriously. The rules are; there must be a 'wow factor' & fun is to be expected, everyone feels welcome & learning ought to be enjoyable. #TranistionMadeEasy https://t.co/ZK9IrZDkTE 8:03 PM - 15 Jan 2019
