Rugby 9’s success for Year 7

Rugby 9’s success for Year 7

Congratulations to our ever improving Year 7 team who represented us at the Salford 9-a-side festival.

The players have benefitted from extra sessions from Salford Red Devils RLFC this term and get better and better every week. The positive attitude, grit and determination these young men show on the rugby field is astounding and they are a credit to the academy and their families. This team, with more experience, will be a force to be reckoned with in the not too distant future.

Special mentions go the following students who won these accolades at the tournament:
Rylan Ashburner – ‘Top Try Scorer’, with three and all were started in his own half.
Travis Chung – ‘Top Tackler’, he defended like a brick wall throughout the competition.
Abdul Abou-Baker – ‘Man of Steel’, he played with massive intensity and fortitude in blazing heat despite completing Ramadan.
