The Year 8 Rugby team followed up their impressive showing at the recent county sevens tournament where they finished joint 3rd, with a fantastic day of rugby on Monday 17th October at Penrice Academy. Playing a very impressive brand of running rugby the team defeated hosts Penrice, Humphrey Davy, Liskeard and Camborne school. This set up a semi-final against sevens champions Redruth. RLS took an early lead but despite an outstanding defensive effort narrowly lost 2 tries to 1. This try turned out to be the only try conceded all day by eventual winners Redruth.
The day finished on a high with a narrow victory over Newquay Treviglas in the 3rd and 4th place play off.
A brilliant performance by the whole squad who finished in 3rd place out of the 22 schools who entered.
The team who deserve our congratulations are: Monty Robertson, Ben Bulford-Forbes, Nat Dart (C), Ben West, Michael Gough, Oliver Tremayne-Ward, Jason Dunstan, Aaron Havers, Tom Dolan, Jack Dunstan Matty Walker, Alex Benson, Tom Beynon, Riley Eddy, Jamie Ware, Stan Romney.
