Year 8 Rugby Team at County Sevens Tournament

Added 4 years ago

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.
