Year 8 Rugby Upskills

On Tuesday 24th September ten of the Year 8 rugby team attended a new event at Cardinal Newman.

Schools across the city came together for a mixed team tournament. All the school team players were split up and new 7 aside teams were formed with players from a variety of schools.

It had a great result with all the players having to learn to play with new players and build on their communication skills. The format also broke some of the competitive barriers of rugby that can put some students off playing the game. The rules were simplified in order to give more game time.

The Hove Park students really enjoyed the experience, some had never played in a competitive environment before. This event has helped many in their introduction into the sport.

A huge thanks to the staff at Cardinal Newman for putting on this event.
