On Wednesday afternoon the U9 B team welcomed Grantham Prep school for a 6-a-side match of tag rugby. Not only was the weather on our side that afternoon, but St Hugh's also won the toss, meaning the whistle blew with the ball in their possession and a try was scores within the first minute! The first half saw many opportunities for tries from both sides and the half-time whistle blew with a score of 3-5 to St Hugh's. The excitement continued throughout the second half with a new rule declared by the referee that the ball must be passed at least three times before making a try. The team demonstrated some excellent communication and a very effective defensive line which enabled them to turn over the ball into their own possession on countless occasions. A superb effort by all players and a very successful afternoon.
Final score: 11-6 to St Hugh's.
