We played some wonderful, spirited 7’s rugby. We were unfortunate to come up against a strong Droitwich team in our first game, but still managed to score against the eventual runners-up in the tournament.
Our second game saw us pitted against another team with wonderful spirit, Fleetwood, who possessed the best team kit I have ever seen! We ran our eventual winners, playing some breathtaking rugby.
Our third game, saw us play Caldy Vale School, who pressed and pressed us, in a close fought game, we couldn’t break them down, and lost narrowly.
Our fourth game saw us play Waterloo B (!), where we met a really strong side, who bashed us into submission, but again, not without us playing some great stuff.
Our Play-off game saw us play against Didsbury Toc H, another unfamiliar side, and their sheer size saw them victors, but we retained our pride with a great performance, despite injuries and tiredness creeping in.
All in all, an encouraging day, which saw us trying something new to a good standard. Overall we finished 8th from 10 teams, but we know we can improve on that in the future.
