Chairman’s Cup Rugby

On the morning of 23rd May the rugby team left school bright and early to take part in the Chairman’s Cup Rugby Competition at Oxford University Rugby Club.
This is a 7 a side TAG Rugby competition with at least 3 girls on the pitch at all times. Wantage took a strong squad of 10 players to compete at the competition.
We had to play each team twice to get a place in the semi-finals. We played Our Lady’s and Brightwell in our league and won all 4 matches.
In the semi-final we played against Woodfarm and won 8-4 securing us a place in the finals.
In the finals we were against Brightwell again and it was a very close match with Brightwell scoring first. However Wantage managed to do some great TAGS and take the lead, finally winning the Chairman’s Cup 6-4.
A great morning was had by all the children and a very well deserved win. Well done to everyone who took part.
