Year 10 Rugby

Congratulations to our year 10 rugby team for reaching the final of the plate competition. The game was played at Luctonians Rugby Club on Monday 16th Nov 2015.

The team have played exceptionally well over the past few weeks, playing in some very close and entertaining games. 

Our opponents in the final was Queen Elizabeth and  as soon as the whistle went we began the game on top. For the first 15 minutes THOA kept possession inside QE's half and really tested their defence. The forwards were dominating the rucks and there was some lovely link up play through the backs.
Tenbury were rewarded for their pressure and scored the first try when Dom Wiset made a lovely run through their defence.

QE responded well and started to win the scrums which proved to be a vital part of their fightback. They scored 2 tries before the half and finished the half 5-12 up.

Tenbury continued to play well in the second half but found it very difficult against a very fast QE team. QE added another 4 tries to the score before the end.

Tenbury finished the game brightly and were close to scoring when Oliver Wallace was tackled 2 metres from the try line.

Overall, our team have played really well and have started to play as a team. Their aim is to carry the positives into next year as we look to have a really strong year 11 team.

Well Done!
