Yr 5/6 Tag Rugby @ Gateshead RFC

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

A total of 11 teams took part in today’s competition from 7 local primary schools; Oakfield Juniors, Barley Mow, Portobello, Bill Quay, Roman Road, Ravensworth Terrace and Harlow Green. 

The standard of play was extremely high and all pupils/staff should be commended for their efforts.  The eventual winners of the event were a stong Oakfield Juniors (a) who were unbeaten throughout the tournament.
