BLUF:

 

Summer Tag Rugby starts 6 May at 1800-1915 followed by BBQ and beers !!!!

 

Strathendrick – A Great Finish for the Season!

Well done to all those who travelled to Strathendrick last Sunday.

Our mighty P3 team led by Nick were joint winners of their age group with GHK!!

The P4 & P5 teams played some fantastic rugby promoting team work and positivity throughout the tournament. I witnessed 4 of P5 players making a try saving tackle on a rather large opposition player which was inspiring to see!!

The P6 & P7 teams were semi-finalists, where both missed out on the final after playing superbly.

Again a big thank you to all involved last Sunday at Strathendrick it was great day of rugby.  On that note our season rugby season draws to a close but the summer rugby season begins!!
