St. Mary's vs Loretto
Wednesday 22nd Sept
On Wednesday the U9s Lions Rugby squad welcomed Loretto to St Marys for what was their first rugby fixture in nearly two years and it was a cracker. In what I can only describe as classic Barbarian style rugby, both sides played fast running rugby with plenty of points scored. Playing two 10 minute halves, strong fast running and superb support play resulted in St Mary's leading 4-2 at the interval.
The second half saw both teams giving everything in attack and defence, communication and support play again of a very high standard for boys of this age. Everyone contributed to what was a great advert for the game of rugby.
Final Result: St Mary's Lions 9: Loretto 8
Everyone enjoyed the match so much we played a further 5 minutes with the St Mary's and Loretto boys mixing together and the winner of this game...was "Rugby"
Well done to all involved, especially to Ruben P. and William G. who each volunteered to play a half for Loretto and to Mr Brydon our groundsman for preparing our pitches.
