Pupils from Years 3 and 4 hosted St Leonard’s in a Tag Rugby friendly held here at Broadclyst on Tuesday 11th May.
The team were hugely excited to play their first game against another school and started well with Dylan and Jai-Jai scoring early on to give the team a lead. St Leonard’s then recovered despite some excellent defending from Alicia and Oscar, to leave the game well poised at the interval. Broadclyst then really pushed on in the second quarter scoring a number of excellent team tries initiated by Harrison with some great running on the wing to score the first of 3 in this quarter. St Leonard’s kept changing their team regularly posing an extra challenge for the Broadclyst team to adapt to and after a tight third quarter, the team stamped their authority on the game in the final quarter with much of the play involving Freya linking well with Dylan and Jai-Jai.
By the final whistle the team had scored 18 tries, a superb feat in 40 minutes play and they are looking forward to playing more Tag Rugby next year.
