Sky Try Rugby Festivals

This week, the annual SkyTry 9?s Rugby festivals were held for Years 7, 8 and 10 at Buile Hill. On Tuesday night, it was the turn of our Year 10?s to begin proceedings as they faced Buile Hill, Swinton and St Ambrose Barlow. Two wins from two (12-4 vs Swinton and 8-0 vs Buile Hill) put the boys in a good position, but we came unstuck in our last game against Ambrose, losing by two tries to finish second overall. Despite the setback, the boys are still in the running for their Salford Schools’ League title with games to follow against East Manchester Academy and Buile Hill.

Squad: Ben Gore, Lewis Anderson, Alex Hunter, Luke Blair,Daniel Stone, Tom Rawding, Jake Richmond,Will Toone, Brody Howell-Partington,Max Mulligan.

Wednesday night saw the Year 8 squad face pool games against Wright Robinson and Moorside; a 12-4 victory over Wright Robinson was followed by a 24-16 success against Moorside to set up a place in the final against Buile Hill. In the final, two tries from Lorcan Reeves and one from Henry Talbot-Dutton gave the boys a 12-8 victory. The win sees the boys now go forward to the Regional Finals to be held later in the year.

Squad: Henry Talbot-Dutton,Max Moseley, Finley Lambert,Malcolm Edeko, Luke Houghton, Jake Bushby, Lorcan Reeves,Oliver Cope, Junior Mohammed, Louis Quinn.

To finish the week, our Year 7?s faced competition from Buile Hill,Moorside and St Ambrose Barlow. Victories over Buile Hill 'A' and 'B' teams in the pool stage were followed by a third victory over Moorside. In the final, the boys were pitted against St Ambrose Barlow. A close game was decided by breakaway tries, as Ambrose prevailed 16-0 but the scoreline did not reflect the game. The boys qualify for the Regional Finals and also have a play-off against All Hallows to look forward to in the Salford Schools’ League competition.

Squad: Henry Moran,Cody Waring, LukasWood, Jake Wallbank, Luke Gibson,Mikey Gilligan, Alex Strother, Tom Graves,Oliver McHenry, Toby Markham,Callum Bovill,Nathan Arthur.
