An early Saturday morning start for the boys and their parents, however the prospect of some good rugby lightened spirits. From the first game the boys were hard at work and were playing well against Caldicott. Some great runs by the Gateway boys meant it was 3-2 in the final moments with us looking to score again, however it was not to be.

Thorpe House were a tough second match and they were strong in the rucks. They ran well and tried time and time again to open up gaps. The Gateway boys did well to hold them off and only let them break through twice to finish up 2-0 to Thorpe House.

A game straight after the second meant our boys were tired and had no time recover. Claire’s Court scored first and we quickly equalised with Ryan running from deep in our half to equalise. Claire’s Court scored again and it was difficult for us to keep our heads up against a fresh opposition.

The final game saw us playing the hosts. After our team talk from Ben it was time to lift our heads and realise we had played some good rugby. We were strong on the ball, strong in the rucks and held most the possession, we just needed to break through their defense. A great run from Jayme H saw the first try and the second quickly followed for us to finish 2-0.
Through every game the boys showed fantastic sportsmanship and perseverance and played some great rugby, no matter the score lines. Well done boys.
