A gritty first fixture kick starts our U9s rugby season.
On Wednesday, the Under 9s Rugby Team played their first fixture of the season against an experienced Birchfield Team. Despite many of our boys being new to contact rugby, we nonetheless put up stern resistance throughout a match in which we tackled with gusto and crossed the opposition try line on several occasions. Although Yarlet ultimately narrowly failed to secure a victory, an overall performance characterised by grit and determination bodes well for our forthcoming tournament at Birchfield on 11th February. Henry Pickering (Captain), Max Whittingham and Rohan Sheldon deserve special mention for their efforts. More of the same please, gents!
