On Thursday 20th April, our P6 and 7 rugby boys played against Spa Primary School and Meadow Bridge Primary School. With sun was shining, the boys played some fast-flowing rugby. It was great to have some players who have never played competitive rugby before playing for our Waringstown PS Rugby Team. Many thanks to the parents who helped with transport to and from Meadow Bridge PS.

Last Friday our rugby team travelled to Campbell College for their 2019 Mini Rugby Festival.
The boys played Carrickmannon PS in their first game and came away victors scoring a few nice tries. Their next opponent was Moneyrea PS, a bigger team who were very strong. Our team played well together and grew into the game but unfortunately were defeated. The last game was against Friend's Prep, and at this point the boys were really starting to gel and put in a perfect performance to win the game.
The team this year was a mixture of experienced rugby boys and boys who have never played rugby before. We were delighted to see how well they played together and worked on creating a true team spirit.
A huge thankyou must be given to the Rev Hawthorne who helped with the after schools rugby and to prepare the team for this tournament. Thanks also go to the parents who came along to cheer the boys on and who provided lifts.
We also want to thank Campbell College for their hospitality, providing burgers, drinks and a T-shirt to all players.
Well done to all involved.
