Lots of Rugby and lots of rain!

It was surprisingly mild and dry at the beginning of the U11 Tag Rugby Final at Banbury Rugby Club last week; sadly the rain was obviously just ‘running late’ and caught up with us midway through the afternoon at Bodicote Park! But, as always, it didn’t stop the player’s from enjoying the event – and the impressive refreshment stop kept the spectators spirits up too!

Twelve teams contested the Final, following cluster competitions involving 77 teams from 35 schools in the preceding weeks.

On the field Dr Radcliffe’s, Sibford Gower, Edward Feild, West Kidlington, Hill View, Harriers, St John’s, Hanwell Fields, Glory Farm, Fritwell and Kings Meadow continued to show the skills that got them to the Finals.  After a competitive and entertaining afternoon, Dr Radcliffe’s were crowned 2016 Champions following a close final game against Hill View.

This year’s Tag Rugby programme has seen 724 ten and eleven year olds playing Tag Rugby, with 65 Secondary School Young Leaders trained and deployed to support the competitions.

A huge thank you to Banbury Rugby Club, Bicester Rugby Club and Gosford All Blacks for their continued support of and engagement at our events.
