“Churchills are champions in this year’s Junior House Rugby”

The Junior House Rugby was equally as competitive this year and again there was much positive and attacking rugby on show for all to watch. The decision to play touch also meant that those players who dominate the game week in week out had to really show their talent and the game allowed the smaller players to flourish. A good crowd gathered for the early games. Two houses stood out in the early rounds; Wellingtons and Churchills set the benchmark with strong performances.

As the tournament progressed the games became more and more competitive. Pitts upped their game and suddenly it became a three horse race and Pitts caused an upset beating Wellingtons. Sammy U was exceptional as he carried the ball forward making essential yards and setting up a win for his team. Churchills then had a strong start against Pitts meanin the deciding game for the Junior House Rugby Cup was to be decided with the Churchills against Wellingtons. Churchills played superbly with Alec F really showing the crowds what he was made of with his darting runs, electric pace and quick footwork. He scored many crucial tries and was influential in his sides win.

A huge thanks to the players for playing with energy, enthusiasm and sportsmanship, to the parents for their excellent support, the ground staff for the pitch preparation and the catering for the lovely refreshments and finally all of the referees and staff who enabled the day to run so smoothly.
