U8 and 9's Rugby v Loretto
Wednesday 25th September 2019
We took two teams up to Loretto on Wednesday an U9 team “The Eagles” and an U8 team “The Tigers”, both teams played very well against strong Loretto teams. The first game The Eagles played some very good running rugby, passing well along with some excellent tackling meant they came out as winners with a score line of 8 -7. A very good team performance all players playing a part in a good competitive game.
This was followed by the St Marys Tigers playing the Loretto U9 “B” team in a touch match, although playing against older boys St Marys players acquitted themselves very well and like the first match was very competitive. They never gave up and with some fine communication and support play scored 6 tries, with some sound defending Loretto could only score 5 in reply a good win. This was the first time that these players had represented the school in a rugby match so well done on a great performance.
