Year 9 Boys in Portugese International Rugby Festival

Back Row: Sam Skinner, Lewis Wells, Tom Lambourn, Sam Vernon

Front Row: Sam Coogan, Brandon Bugden, Asher Richards, Jacob Perry

The Pirates Under 14’s rugby team which contained 6 Mounts Bay students, came 3rd overall!  They lost in the semi-final – though there were whispers of a few questionable referee decisions!  The Buccaneers team which included at least 3 Mounts Bay students came 7th overall.

There were 18 teams in the tournament and the boys also played 2 friendly matches on Thursday.  It was a very different style of rugby, only 12 men in the team and with some different rules.  A fantastic achievement…and for the 2 teams to finish in the top half is brilliant!  Well done!
