Girls Tag Rugby

Some of our year 6 girls took part in a tag rugby tournament as part of the `Women in Sport Week` which aims to encourage greater female participation in sport and exercise.  

We topped our group following comprehensive 4-0 and 4-1 victories.  The semi final was won by four tries to two.  We faced Goodrich school in the final and in a very close game which could have gone either way we came out on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline.  The girls came very close to an equalising try but just could not get over the try line thanks to great Goodrich defending.

During the course of the tournament we had a chance to have an interesting chat with a professional rugby player.  The girls asked her thoughtful questions about her path to that career and what it is like to be a professional athlete.  

Well done to the girls on a great effort and fantastic display.  Also congratulations to Goodrich who were worthy winners.
