Year 7 Rugby

Sensational Simms Stuns Sheriff
Southam 40 Lawrence Sheriff 10

An incredible performance by captain Brendan Simms led his exciting Year 7 Rugby Team to a memorable victory against our illustrious opponents. Brendan and fellow centre Logan Morrison laid down the law to Sheriff with devastating runs that brought a hat-trick for Brendan and a sensational five tries for the rampaging Logan. In the first half, Brendan’s tackling was amazing, imprisoning Sheriff in their own half. Although the badge of honour went to Brendan, all the backs deserve credit as the handling skills in damp, cold conditions were heart warming. They are a joy to watch, with Reni Bulyka and Callum Stewart getting quick ball to the aforementioned Brendan and Logan. The excellent judgement of when to pass and offload set up exciting runners Max Shirley, Paul Hickey and Oscar Wain.
Champagne moment of the match came from James Byrne, an outrageously cheeky pass out of the back of his hand launched another sweeping attack. Earlier, James had stripped the ball off an opponent, who had been brilliantly lasso tackled by Callum Stewart, before feeding to Logan to score. James Pelter was awarded ‘Tackle of the Match’ for a try-saving, last ditch tackle after others had missed tackles. This was perfect Full Back play; as was his excellent counter attacks from long Sheriff kicks.
To some extent, Sheriff got out of jail as the score line could have been many more. Hardworking Hooker, Tom Werren was held up over the line, as was towering Second Row Oli Kitson, who just gets better and stronger game by game. Superb runs by Rory Spencer, Cameron Black and Zsombor Toth saw them stopped just a rattlesnake’s length from the line.
The second half marked the debut of Reni’s Scrum Half deputy Connor Barker. He was first to the draw, with an excellent opening tackle and a run that reflected his amazing agility. The Sheriff defence was starting to creak like saloon doors with props Ruben De Beer and Max Fraser-Pope dominant in the ruck and maul.
This was a great team performance, there are no lone rangers in our side!

England Schools Cup Game

On Wednesday the year 7 and 8 girls cup team led by captain Lucy came up against University of Birmingham School in their first match together.
The team were excited as the game began, with Megan in goal the team were confident, Elektra, Martha, Lucy set up the back 3 and kept the team pushing forward, meeting the ball and stopping UOBS attacking on goal.
Selina, Sienna, Aimee, Layla and Poppy worked hard in the middle pressuring the opposition and working the ball to Gracie and Izzy upfront. The opposition managed to sneak one goal just before half time and we went into the second half 1-0 down.
A few changes to our team meant that Sienna and Gracie took charge upfront. Some beautiful play between the two supported by the strength of the midfielders and Aimee’s amazing throw ins meant that we had many shots on goal! Elektra and Lucy in defence played amazing, meeting the ball and blocking the opposition. Poppy in the middle worked hard to pressure the opposition and hassle so they made mistakes.
Unfortunately for the girls the clock ran out and although there were many amazing attempts on goal, the final score ended 1-0.
Miss MacLachlan and Mr Ginger were extremely impressed with the ethos of the team and the skill they showed in their football. This being the first match they’d ever played together showed huge promise for future years! Although a loss, we are very proud of the efforts of the whole team.
Well done.
