Yr 5/6 Tag Rugby @ Ryton RFC

The Yr 5/6 Tag Rugby Tournament took place at Ryton RFC this afternoon.  The competition was one of 3 separate Tag Rugby events scheduled to take place this week. The remaining events are scheduled to take place at Gateshead RFC and Blaydon RFC on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

A total of 9 teams took part in today’s competition from 5 local primary schools; St Agnes, Greenside, High Spen, Ryton Juniors and St Mary & St Thomas. 

The standard of play was extremely high and all pupils/staff should be commended for their efforts.  The eventual winners of the event were Ryton Juniors (b) who just edged out a strong St Agnes team.  Congratulations to both schools who have qualified for the Gateshead Primary Schools Tag Rugby Finals on Wednesday 10th November 2010 @ Blaydon RFC (4:00-6:00pm).

Thank you once again to all schools and staff for your continued support at these events and to Ryton RFC for hosting us and providing volunteers on the day.  A special thank you also to students from Whickham School and Sports College for doing a superb job refereeing the matches (Alex, Johnny & Dan).
