The Year 7 rugby team played in a tournament on the 20th of October and enjoyed games against 6 other teams. Their record for the day (four wins and two draws) speaks for itself. They played some fantastic flowing rugby, getting the ball through hands in attack and using the pace and strength of players like Harry E and Connor W and they were resolute and organised in defence with some tremendous tackles and ripping the ball from the opposition (notably Jayden L, Max S, Connor W, Darius V and Harry E). The break down is a strength of the team, Fin R and Max S, masters of the ruck and their strength and positioning coupled with the agility of Harry B and the attacking lines of Hayden W, meant that we always threaten in attack.
I would like to congratulate all of the boys that took part for their fine effort, energy and representing JMHS so well. My thanks also to Mr James Seager (former student at JMHS) from Ledbury RFC who gives freely of this time every Monday to coach the team and for giving up his time to coach the team at the tournament.
Students who also played: Charles B-R, Oliver S, Ted U-K, Bryn R and Zak B.
