Year 10 take part in Hampshire Schools Rugby 7's
Last week, a group of Year 10 boys from The Henry Beaufort School attended the Hampshire Schools Rugby 7’s Tournament at Wellington Sports Ground in Eastleigh.
This was the group’s first experience of schools 7’s and the boys played extremely well. The first half of the afternoon consisted of group games with final positions ranking teams into specific knockout stages. Henry Beaufort played Petersfield, Priestlands & St. Georges. The boys played some brilliant rugby and were able to win two out of the three games they played, only narrowly losing out to Priestlands by one try.
After a break, the team played in a match that determined whether they entered the semi-finals for the Plate or the Cup. The boys were successfully entered into the semi-finals for the Plate against John Hanson. It was a great battle between the two sides, with Henry Beaufort narrowly missing out.
Throughout the day the boys showed great skill, moving the ball around and scoring some outstanding tries. The boys should be proud of their attitude and efforts on reaching the semi-finals for their first 7’s tournament as a school team. We look forward to see how they get on in future 7’s games!
