Jubilant John Fisher with Rugby Double Delight

9th January 2023

The Morden Cluster Year 5 and 6 Tag Rugby Competition took place on Monday 9th January 2023 at the welcoming facilities of King’s Old Boys Rugby Club.

8 teams from 5 local schools took part over the afternoon for our first event of 2023 and the first held at the Rugby Club.

Kings Rugby

King’s rugby run a full minis’ rugby section for boys and girls from under 5 (Reception) to under 11 (Year 6) plus a junior sections from under 12 (Year 7) to under 14 (Year 9). It is a vibrant and fun environment for boys and girls of all abilities. We look forward to welcoming boys and girls of all abilities. King’s Rugby is so much more than just an hour’s weekend activity, it’s a club in every sense. We offer excellent value for money and are happy to offer a free month’s trial for new players. We promote fun and friendship and we want every player and parent to enjoy their time at the club, whilst supporting each other through the core values of rugby union: teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.

The event was officiated by volunteer coaches from the club and teams split into 2 groups leading to a semi final and final for all.

Thank you to the 80 participants within the 8 teams from Abbotsbury, Hatfeild, Hillcross x 2, Poplar x 2 and St John Fisher x 2. All teams showed exceptional respect and determination for the game and can be proud of representing their school with outstanding sportsmanship.

Congratulations to Hatfeild Primary for being crowned with the REFSPECT Award for this years event – they showed superb spirit and resilience and their development as a team over the 5 games was significant. Well done to you all.

It was St John Fisher, entering with 2 teams, who managed to get both squads to the Gold place match with some terrific tag rugby tries scored from both teams along the way. Even in the final they could hardly be separated but it was their A team who pipped top spot with a 2 – 1 victory. This friendly rivalry pushed both teams to display some superb rugby that was certainly noticed by the onlooking coaches. Well done to all 20 of them for a well-deserved Gold and Silver double. Congratulations also to Abbotsbury who claimed 3rd place and to Poplar B in 4th. Hillcross enjoyed an inter team match for 5th/6th place with Hatfeild and Poplar A completing the fixtures.

A huge thanks again from MSSP to all involved in making this landmark event a success and we look forward to hosting more events at King’s Rugby Club in the future.
