CONGRATULATIONS TO THE U14!
Our U14 squad took part in an invitational, friendly mini-tournament organised by some Centaurs parents with teams from Centaurs (2), SCC, TRC, Dragons and a ‘Barbarians’ team.
The boys didn’t get into their stride through the round-robin stage but scored enough wins and tries to qualify for the final against one of the Centaurs teams. The boys’ hard work on the training ground though paid-off in the final – they went out on the pitch keen and aggressive, and were the convincing winners 4 tries to 1. Well played!
