On Friday 1 March Coopersale Hall took part in the ISA North London Mixed Tag Rugby competition held at Woodford Wells Cricket Club. Our first game was against a fast and well organised Daiglen School team. After conceding an early try we battled back to win 5-4!
In our second match we beat Oakland’s ‘B’ Team 5-2. We then had to play the defending champions, Avon House. This was a very close game with each side scoring when they had possession. At the final whistle we had lost 7-6, so close! Our last group match was against last year’s semi finalists Swaminarayan School. This match was even closer ending 5-5. Unfortunately we did not progress to the semi finals, going out on the number of tries we had conceded. We had scored 21 tries and conceded 18, Swaminarayan had also scored 21 tries but had only conceded 16. How close can you get? We played our final match against Oakland’s ‘A’ team it was a draw and we finished joint 5th place.
Mr Robinson would like to thank all pupils for showing such determination and effort. Thank you also to the parents who turned up to cheer us on.
