Wednesday 11th October – School Games Mixed Tag Rugby

On Wednesday 11th October, our Year 6 Tag Rugby team attended the School Games Mixed Tag Rugby tournament at Hurstmere.

The team were excited and raring to go as soon as we arrived at the event. After a quick warm and briefing, the 12 schools were split into 4 pools of 3 teams.

West Lodge began the tournament with a strong and confident start, winning our first game                    . Our second game proved our opponents to be a very strong team, and we unfortunately lost this game.

A win and a loss meant West Lodge were then sorted into a final pool of 4 schools all competing for 5th to 8th places. We kept up team spirit throughout and played our final 3 games and were ranked 8th in the tournament overall.

The team were a fantastic representation of the school and should be very proud of their efforts. We look forward to playing some friendly Tag Rugby fixtures against Farringtons after half term!

Many thanks to Mr McCabe for training the team and for bringing them to this event.
