The All Saints Year 8 rugby team travelled over to Dorchester Rugby club for the annual Area Rugby tournament last week. It was really good to see that we had 16 players available and willing to represent the school. There were 6 teams competing in total; All Saints, Budmouth, DMS, St Osmunds A and B team and Woodruffe.
The standard of rugby seen in all games was a credit to the pupils and the Schools they were playing for. Although we played exceptionally well in all games we only managed to win one game beating St Osmunds B convincingly. We lost to DMS and Woodruff by only 1 try and unfortunately we were out played by a very impressive Budmouth team losing 4-1. The game against the eventual winners St Osmunds was the most encouraging game we played and only lost due to two break away tries. The players that stood out were Jacob Baldwin, Harry Mitchel and Jack Pallister; however the rest of the team played with a lot of heart and commitment throughout the tournament.
The Team: Jacob Baldwin, Harry Mitchel, Jack Pallister, Kyle Graham, Will Hyde, Kaleb Thorne, Alex Browne, Ayden Vetier, Leighton Rogers, Vernon Mason, Youness Djeebet, Ethan Jones, Theo Hipperson, Oliver Tully, Jack Thomas, James Newstead and Ben Roscoe-Quine.
