National Schools Rugby Tournament

On Sunday 18 November, The Croft U9, U10 and U11 Rugby teams took part in the regional qualifiers of the National Schools’ Rugby Tournament (NSRT) at Bristol Grammar School. The competition was fierce from the outset with The Croft boys acquitting themselves well against schools with over three times the number of pupils. The quality of rugby by all three age groups was outstanding. The U9’s came third, narrowly losing out on qualification, whilst the U10’s were denied victory by a golden try in extra time in their Semi-final.

A huge congratulations to the U11 team who have again made it to the NSRT Finals which will be held at Epsom College on Sunday 3 March 2013.

Thanks to all the boys for their massive commitment and the parents who made the trip down to Bristol and supported so vocally.  I look forward to seeing you pitch-side soon!

Mr N Harper

Head of Boys’ Games
