Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby

Southend Rugby Club was the venue for the year 5 & 6 tag rugby tournament. It was a freezing cold morning with potential of sunshine later.

The teams from the west and east were split into groups where the best two teams in each group would go through to the next round which would follow the same procedure as the football as a knock out FA Cup style draw.

The morning saw exceptional team performances as well as good technical skills from individuals this standard carried on to the afternoon.

Tags were flying everywhere in the final played by West Leigh who held the title and Temple Sutton who were aiming to win their first Tag Rugby competition. The first half seemed to have decided the outcome with West Leigh going in to the break with a big lead. However in the second half Temple Sutton attacked with persistence to try and come back and win the game. West Leigh managed to steal the win with a 7-6 victory. Both teams showed a high standard of tag rugby and enthusiasm and passion for the sport.

Congratulations must go to both teams as they will both now go on to represent their School Sport Partnerships in the Essex County Final on the 24th November we wish both teams the best of luck.

The fair play award was given to Prince Avenue School for their good sportsmanship towards other teams whether they won or loss and for thoroughly enjoying the day.

Congratulations to all players, coaches, teachers and parents who helped make the competition go so well and a fun day for all involved

Special thanks must go to Southend Rugby Club for the use of their pitches and facilities, Westcliffe High School for Boys students for their refereeing skills, Tracy Bennett the competition manager as well as SWSSP and SESSP staff for the refereeing and organisation of the competition.
