Tag Rugby Tournament at Ledbury Rugby Club
Last Friday Highnam took part in a large tag-rugby festival at Ledbury Rugby Club. The weather was dreadful but the team performed well despite of the conditions. In between matches the team was able to shelter under a gazebo kindly purchased by the PTC.
In the first game Highnam played Ashpurton B and lost a close game 7-6. Well done to James who scored 3 tries in the game. Next Highnam played Much Birch winning 10-2 with tries from Joseph, Adam, Dan and Christopher. The final group match was against Colwall and Highnam this time won 8-2 with tries from Ben, Christopher, Dan J, James and Adam.
After lunch it was announced that Highnam was through to play in the cup competition and faced the favourites Ashpurton . Ashpurton ran out eventual winners 5-3 with the Highnam tries from Joseph, Christopher and Sian. Congratulations to Ashpurton who beat Gorsley Goffs in the final to win the competition.
Many thanks to Mrs Townsend for organising the team on the day and the parents who came along to support the team.
