First Schools' Tag Rugby Festival at HSMS

Tag Rugby Festival October 11th 2022


This was the first festival of the year and we were lucky as the sun shone and the temperature perfect.

Four of the first schools attended the event: Axbridge, Mark, Weare and Wedmore. Each school was encouraged to bring ten players and each match lasted twelve minutes.

It was the first time that our new cohort of sport leaders had the chance to lead and inspire. Some of the leaders that play rugby were able to practice their refereeing skills. Others shouted encouragement at their teams and led warm ups and cool downs. The admin leaders also did a great job and collated all the results.

The standard of play was high and there was a fun but competitive atmosphere. It was nice for parents, carers and teachers to watch and to chat to some old Hugh Sexeys’ pupils.

The final score was

4th Place Axbridge

3rd Place Wedmore

2nd Place Mark

1st Place Weare

The next festival will be at Wedmore Pitches and is the girls’ football
