Tag Rugby Champions 2016-2017
Tag Rugby: On Tuesday 21st February, Balgowan took three teams to the Bromley Schools’ Tag Rugby Competition – alongside 37 other teams.
Each team was drawn into a different group and played four games each. Every team played in the qualifier. The ‘C team’ were undefeated. They won two games and drew two games. They played against Crofton, Pickhurst, Valley and Bickley. Their defence line was very effective which helped them a lot. The ‘B team’ won two, drew one and, sadly, lost one game. Their defence line proved helpful; however, it failed on their last game – resulting in loss. On the positive, they did score some very sneaky tries. The ‘A team’ were definitely the most successful. They won all of their games. Their team included some very fast runners who helped them score a number of tries. Because the ‘A team’ won every single game thrown at them, they went through to the quarter-finals held that same day. After winning the quarter final, they then went on to win both the semi-finals and finals – meaning that they came in top place and will represent Bromley at the London Youth Games! Overall, the tournament was a big success for Balgowan.
