St Marys Under 8s and 9s Rugby

Our Under 8s and 9s rugby squads played hosts to Merchiston on Wednesday past on the back pitches here at St
Marys. A total of 22 players made up 3 teams, the Panthers, the Lions and our U8s the Tigers. A total of five games were played contact for the U9s and touch for the U8s which provided the large support with some very entertaining rugby. This season sees new age grade trial laws which will help keep the game flowing with more time with the ball in play and going by our games this certainly happened. All teams played some good rugby with solid tackling and sound passing which allowed many scores to be made.
Well done to all the players especially to the form 3 boys who played in their first games for St Marys and to our new starts in form 4. A great effort by all involved many positives but still some areas which required to be worked on.  
Thanks to Merchiston for travelling down from Edinburgh, to Mr Bell for preparing the pitches and to Stephan for game coaching the touch games and of course to all off the many parents and others who came along and supported all the teams. Our next games will take place on Wednesday 26th September at St Marys against Loretto.
