South Yorkshire Tag Rugby Y3/4 Champions

Last week, High Green Primary School were crowned Y3/4 South Yorkshire Tag Rugby County Champions . It was a thrilling journey for the children whose success was built on a dominating defence, with the children only conceding two tries throughout the whole competition, combined with some clinical attacking play. It could have been a different story for High Green, as in the Sheffield qualifying stage it came down to a winner takes all in the final match against St Catherine’s. Thankfully it was High Green who came out on top with a 2-0 victory. At the South Yorkshire finals, High Green were one of three teams representing Sheffield, with all three teams making it through to the semi-finals, it is great to see Rugby League doing so well in Sheffield. The children of High Green performed magnificently during the whole competition, especially considering they were playing against some much larger schools. The children played superbly and can be proud of the what they have achieved.
Mr Gregory (PE Coordinator): “The children were brilliant, not only the way they played, but how they represented the school. They listened to all the advice that was offered to them and gave it their all on the pitch. I’m so proud that out of 84 teams across Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley that they have been crowned Champions!”
Adam Fuller (Sports Development Manager of Arches School Sports Partnership): “It’s a great achievement for the children to be county champions at this ages, especially considering they played for a small 1 form entry school.”
