Y4 7 a-side Rugby Tournament at Bournemouth Collegiate – 10th February

Match Report

At the group stage all teams played off against each other. Moyles Court took a while to get going, but as the games progressed we started to pass better, support the ball carrier more, work better as a team and most importantly, tackle better. Although the results in the first 6 games were not favourable towards us, we did score some excellent tries from Jack, Harrison and the impressive Oliver. However, we were able to win our final group stage game that took us through to the semi-final of the Plate completion against BCS. With our best rugby so far, we were able to win this game by 4-2, with 2 further tries apiece for Oliver and Edward.

In the Plate final we played Durlston Court who had previously beaten us comfortably in the first group stage match. However, in the final we played our best rugby of the tournament, but ended up losing by just one try with a final score of 4-3 in favour of Durlston Court. In fact, just as the whistle went, we went over the try line but unfortunately the whistle had already gone.

Stand out player of the tournament for Moyles Court was Oliver, who scored the most tries in the afternoon and made the most tackles, but credit should also go to Jack who carried the ball well, made a number of crucial tackles and scored some good tries of his own and finally to Edward who improved as the tournament went on.
