Edinburgh Rugby Tour 2016

An action packed rugby tour to Edinburgh took place over February Half term.

Day 1 Friday 12th Feb

Early start at 05:30 and started the journey to 'Bonnie' Scotland. We stopped on the way up at English Premiership team Sale Sharks.  The boys had a fully comprehensive analysis and training session meeting players and coaches.

Day 2 Saturday 13th Feb

First games on tour against Royal High School in which both Year 8 and 9 won.  We were then hosted by the club to watch Wales v Scotland.  Quiz night in the hotel for the evening.

Day 3

Second games on tour Year 9 played Pebbles High school and were unfortunately beaten.  The year 8 boys played a touch rugby competition against Stewart Melville School with a mixture of results 2L, 2D and 2W. Edinburgh sight-seeing in the afternoon and a ghost walk in the evening.

Day 4

Stadium tour at Murrayfield, Edinburgh. Then a training session with Edinburgh RFC with the amazing back drop of the stadium.  The afternoon was spent Go Karting which was a very competitive event.  The evening was spent ten pin bowling.

Day 5

Early start on our journey back home. But we were not finished yet as a stop at the home of Manchester United, Old Trafford.  Then the boys were very tired and slept the rest of the way home!!!

Thank you to all the staff, C Thomas, P Thomas, S Barnett, J Richards

The boys on tour were a credit to the school.
