Year 3 Boys Enjoy Their Tag Rugby at Manchester Grammar Festival
Ten schools from all over NW England attended the MGS Rugby Festival on Monday 2nd October. The boys were all very excited setting off on the minibus to play for the school for the first time. They could hardly wait to get stuck into their packed lunches which were devoured on arrival.
After a short practice session we got underway with a 6 v 6 match against Newcastle Under Lyme School, which turned out to be a try filled contest with Nate White prominent for MTS. Merchants finished victorious and followed this up with wins against St Bede’s, Bury Grammar and the hosts, Manchester Grammar in their most impressive performance. The only loss was a close match against the Grange School who made fewer errors than us.
Enthusiasm, effort and commitment ran through the team and all learned a lot while thoroughly enjoying themselves, returning to Crosby very tired.
Squad: Gabriel Davis, Harry Laycock, William Edey, Archie Weindling, Oliver Lambert, Harry Rogers, Lucas Morrissey, Oliver Olson, Nate White, Alexander Oldfield and Thomas Wilson.
