26 Tag Rugby teams shine in the sun

Diss High School hosted the annual South Norfolk School Sports Partnership Tag Rugby competition which involved 26 teams from around South Norfolk, with the top two small and large schools from each cluster within South Norfolk qualifying for the competition.

The weather for the competition saw the sun shining throughout the day although the weather was not the hottest thing on show, rather the quality of the Tag Rugby from all 26 teams involved!

The Tag Rugby competition involved sixteen year eight Diss High school leaders who officiated the and managed the eight pitches, score kept and ensured the event ran smoothly. For these pupils, this was the first time they had the opportunity to take on these roles and they did so with confidence along with being excellent role models for the younger students. Many of the student leaders were involved in the Primary School events just two years previously.

Both the small school and large school competitions were hotly contested with impressive Rugby being played throughout. Both competitions were spilt into two leagues, a small school league one and league two and a large school league one and two. Schools within each league played a round robin tournament with all the teams in their league. The team which finished first in one league played the team which finished second in the other, creating two semi finals, whilst the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th placed teams played against the team that finished in their respective position in the other league.

The small school competition involved a closely contested final between Trowse and Brooke primary school, with Trowse narrowly winning by a  “golden try”. The final results for the small school competition was as follows:

1 Trowse

2 Brooke

3 Alburgh 1

4 Garboldisham

5 Wreningham 2

6 Forncett 2

7 Spooner Row

8 Wreningham 1

9 Banham

10 Forncett 1

11 Carleton Rode (joint)

11 Seething (joint)

13 Alpington

14 Alburgh 2

The large school competition culminated with a final between Wicklewood 1 and East Harling, which again was another impressive match, with Wicklewood 1 winning the match. The final results for the large school competition was as follows:

1 Wicklewood 1

2 East Harling

3 Wicklewood 2
