The opening round of the St Andrews Rugby Premiership was held recently between teams from Year 7 and Year 8.  It was a hard fought match with some great running rugby and some big tackles.

Harry opened the scoring for Year 8, however Year 7 came back with tries to Henry (two) and Ethan to take a 12–4 lead at halftime.  Year 8 started the second half with a try to Junior, followed by an excellent individual effort by Declan.  Year 7 struck back with a second try to Ethan putting them up by 16–12.

Running rugby the order of the day as Year 8 take on Year 7. Running rugby the order of the day as Year 8 take on Year 7.

In the last minutes Harry scored his second try to tie the game 16–16, which was the final score at the whistle.

There was some good running from CJ, Isak, and Khao Tu, a great pass from Lo to set up a try, and some tough tackles put in by Kenny, Oat and Daniel.  Special thanks to the Year 6 and 9 boys who also played.
