The Year 11 rugby team has finished a successful half term of fixtures with a record of four wins and one loss. After a somewhat chastening start to the programme against a very strong, well-drilled Purbeck School where they were beaten 48-0, the team demonstrated a great deal of resilience and character and came back to win the remaining four matches. They recorded two wins against a combined Year 11/12 Corfe Hills team winning 37-15 and 34-10, with a 47-21 victory against Winton sandwiched in between. In the final game of the half term they played some of their most impressive rugby and beat a QE team 43-24.
Throughout the schedule, the team has become a very tight group who support and encourage each other and who have listened and responded positively to the advice given.
