Year 7 Rugby vs Gryphon School

Match Report vs Gryphon School 6th October Rugby

On the 6th of October Hugh Sexeys year 7 Rugby team travelled to Gryphon School in Dorset for a highly anticipated rugby fixture. Getting a full year 7 rugby team together at the start of the School term looked an ambitious target. It is a credit to the captaincy of Ben and the gentle encouragement of a number of the club players that after 3 weeks of training a side was prepared and ready.

After a disappointing first half Hugh Sexeys found themselves 4 tries down. Sexeys had to play more as a team and use the width of the pitch.

The second half began and it was clear the players were determined to put on a better performance. They kept the ball more and were confident in working the ball through the phases and up the pitch. It was simple but effective. Alex was in red hot form and scored 4 tries to help Sexeys win the second half. Super-sub Jamie came on and really kickstarted that second half with his energy, enthusiasm and searing pace.

In the end Gryphon just snatched the victory by one try. However, there were 2 winners on this day;Gryphon School and the sport of Rugby. Well done to both schools who put on a great match to watch!

Training for the year 7 and boys and girls is Friday after School. This will run until the Christmas Holidays.
