U9's Ardvreck Rugby Festival

St Mary's, Fettes A & B, Ardvreck, Cargilfield A & B and Lorretto.

 
The Under 9s Rugby squad along with the girls hockey squad travelled up to Ardvreck festival on Wednesday.  In what turned out to be a most enjoyable day, after a long but pleasant journey the boys played 6 matches which resulted in 5 fine wins against Fettes A, Fettes B, Ardvreck, Loretto, Cargilfield B  scoring a total of 19 tries and only conceding 5 which set up an interesting game against Cargilfield A who had also won 5 games.  As in all of their previous games the St Mary's boys started well scoring 2 quick tries but with Cargilfields never "give up" attitude they managed to score 2 tries late on in the game to make the final result 2-2.  Once again a great display of running rugby, support play and team work by the boys, but as always there are areas that can be worked on and developed, especially realising that the game is not won till the final whistle has blown.

A great display by all teams of running rugby and good sportsmanship, it was a pleasure to watch all these budding rugby players enjoying themselves and having lots of fun. Thank you to Ardvreck for a very well coordinated festival and tremendous hospitality.
