7s Rugby (Friday 23rd February)
On this bitterly cold day our Under 13s 7s Rugby squad travelled to Millfield to play their U13s 1st team.
This is a fixture that the PE department has been waiting years to be able to secure; Millfield had a cancelation and invited us over - we accepted very quickly.
We agreed to play 6 games, 5 minutes each way to prepare for the upcoming Rosslyn Park tournament.
Millfield won 4 games and Hugh Sexey's won 2. The most pleasing game for me was the last game which we won 3 tries to nil. By that point the boys had started to work out how 7s is played, and started to control the game with strong running skills looking for the support runners to be able to crash through.
Considering this was our ever first 7s experience, all the boys did fantastically well. Millfield's director of rugby was very complimentary about our boys: he praised their never - die attitude and the fact that they didn't give up.
The Millfield team was very strong;their fitness levels were superb. Our boys enjoyed the experience. Many thanks to Millfield for giving us that once in a lifetime opportunity.
Well done boys. We wish you all the very best of luck for the Rosslyn Park 7s tournament which is being held on Monday 19th March.
