Arthur Terry took a squad of players made up of Y10 and Y11 students to the Sutton Coldfield rugby 7's tournament this week; sadly only 3 of the local schools decided to enter!
The boys comfortably won their first game against an inexperienced John Willmott team, with 6 unanswered tries that were put in by Jack Knowles (2), Daniel Usher (2), Kane Sedgely and Harry Palmer. The score line was also added to with two conversions from Joe Tipson.
The second game in the round robin of fixtures was against Fairfax School, and they provided quite a contrast in quality to our first opponents. The hosts showed their experience and gained a convincing victory in the end, which earned them first place overall. The Arthur Terry boys put up a very competitive challenge and certainly made a fight of it from start to finish, and can be very proud of their efforts to finish runners up in the competition.
Well done to all the boys that took part!
Squad: Jack Knowles; Dan Usher; Ed Court; Kane Sedgley; Jack Thompson; Lucas Cooper; Joe Tipson; Lawrence Cole; Will Preece; Harvey Timmins; Harry Palmer
