U9 St. Mary's v Loretto and Fettes
It was the turn of Loretto and Fettes to travel down to St Mary's on Wednesday and take part in a round robin series of matches. In the first match St Mary's played Loretto in what was a fun touch game with St Mary's continually changing players so that all the boys were given plenty of game time. Both teams played well with St Mary's coming out on top in this encounter.
Next match was Loretto against Fettes, in what was an evenly contested match with Loretto narrowly winning.
Final game of the afternoon was the much awaited "first" contact game of the season for both Fettes and the St Mary's boys and it did not disappoint with both teams fully committed to the tackle with some big hits going in. In what turned out to be a great team performance St Mary's were just too strong for the visitors displaying superb communication and support play. St Mary's winning their second match of the afternoon.
Once again well done to all players and teachers involved in what was another fun afternoon of rugby at St Mary's and thanks again to the parental support, to Mr Brydon for preparing our pitches and a special thanks this week to the kitchen staff for the after match teas of soup and hot dogs and finally to the staff who helped serve the players and staff.
