Year 8 rugby team

The year 8 rugby team continued their recent run of success when they lifted the trophy for the second consecutive at the St. Helens 9-a-side Tournament.  They had knocked out Great Sankey HS to qualify for the semi-finals of the North West Counties Plate Cup and then overcame St. Cuthberts HS to reach the final of the St.Helens Cup which will take place at Saints in June.

In the 9-a-sides the boys were unbeaten throughout, winning their 3 group games before coming back from behind to knock Rainhill out in the semi-final. They again went behind in the final to Rainford but showed great class and coolness to push on to a 16-10 pts win.  All of the matches were very close but the boys showed a steely mentality in what was a great team effort.

 Good luck in the two remaining competitions!
