The year 6 boys played their first contact rugby match on Tuesday 13th March against our neighbours Llanfaes.
The sun was out and very dry conditions which meant it was perfect for running rugby. The boys had the honour of playing on the 1st XV pitch and their performance and commitment replicated that of the senior rugby team.
Some great team tries were scored throughout the game, ferocious tackling, however, what was most impressive was their commitment and organisation.
It was brilliant to see so many of the Christ College community out to watch the boys put on a fantastic display of rugby.
As a coach, I was very proud to see the boys putting all their hard work in training to the test and most importantly see them having fun. The future of Christ College rugby is looking very bright as these boys progress through the school.
