Top 10 finish in Borough Tag Rugby for Team SJP

On Thursday 12th October, St Joseph's year 5 & 6 tag rugby team took part in the Kingston tag rugby competition. The competition is a huge event with 24 schools taking part, Team SJP where put into a tough group consisting of St Matthews, Oli & Burlington. The first game was against Burlington and SJP got off to a great start winning the game 3-1 thanks to tries from Isaac & Cameron. The 2nd game was not so straight forward and St Matthews defence was very strong with lots of quick fire tagging, eventually St Matthews broke away and scored 2 quick tries. With 2 games played 1 won & 1 lost it was down to the final game against Oli, which we had to win to progress to the next round. Thankfully we held on to win 3-2 thanks to a great last ditch tag from Isaac and double tries from Dagem. Team SJP finished runners up in the group which meant we went through to the plate round unfortunately we lost both plate matches against very tough opposition in Latchmere & Christchurch NM. We eventually finished 10th place overall a great achievement for such a small school against 24 other schools in the borough.
