On the 6th October, the Year 8 Northgate Rugby team participated in a rugby tournament taking place at Norwich Rugby Club. As it was our first tournament as a team we were very nervous and truly excited to play other Norfolk schools. It was great to be playing as part of a team, despite the cold and wet weather. Schools attending included Neatherd, Wymondham High, Wymondham College and a number of other teams.
Unfortunately, we lost most of our games, but we did tie with Neatherd and had a lot of fun being part of this tournament. Playing in this tournament has given us some ideas of areas of our game that we need to work on in our training ahead of future games. We are looking forward to our next games as a team and hoping we can come away with a win!
