The Year 5/6 tag-rugby team brought a 3rd trophy of the year back to Hilldrop Road as they won the Northampton School Sports Partnership Trophy with great style and finesse.
On the back of the footballing successes of the football teams, our terrific tag-rugby team blasted their way to victory at The Duston School.
The culmination of 3 years work and planning by the PE faculty came to the fore as our boys and girls played flowing rugby, filled with pace and power. Extremely well drilled by Mr Prosser and MIss Bland, they were running into passes, crossing over, covering the ball and defending with fierce tenacity. The opposition simply couldn’t live with them.
After breezing through the group stage, Simon de Senlis won their semi-final in extra-time against a side who hadn’t conceded a try…until they encountered our team of phenoms.
A comfortable victory in the final, avenging our defeat last year, saw our team truly get what they deserved. They were the best team by a mile…if you ever get a chance to watch them, watch them! They are AMAZING!
Well done children, your school is EXTREMELY proud of you…thank you.
Vive Les Fleurs!
