Year 5/6 Tag Rugby

Posted: Thu, 13 Dec 2012 10:11

Four teams progressed through to the Level 3 qualifying competition held at BosworthAcademyon the 1st November to compete for the chance to represent the Hinckley & Bosworth School Sport & Physical Activity Network at the Level 3 competition in May. With a strong tradition of success in tag rugby the competition was always going to be strong with school club links particularly evident in these participating schools. With two of the pool matches played it was still impossible to tell who would progress through to the final and who would end up playing off for third and fourth place with 3 tries or less being the difference between the teams in most matches.

Lots of skilful play was on show despite the wet conditions and the two teams who consistently turned possession into points were Dixie Grammar and Burbage Juniors. In the final it was another close affair but with some excellent support play on show Dixieran out victors 8-6. In the 3rd and 4th playoff Elizabeth Woodville beat St Margarets 9-7.
