Our school rugby team has won all of its matches against North West Bristol teams in our local league winning this competition for the second year running without losing a match!
As the year went on, it was great to see a number of girls breaking in to the team. Well done to Sana, Amy-Sue and Elsie for their fantastic progress last year and providing inpsiration to others.
Rob Higgitt, our rugby coach, will begin rugby training and matches again in January. For those children reaching the required standard, there may be the possibility of contact rugby training with other gifted and talented children from Filton Avenue and Upper Horfield.
As with the football and gymnastics, the secret of our success is that our children have access to high quality rugby coaching from an early age and build their skills up over time. Our coach, Rob Higgitt had a distinguished professional playing career with Bristol Rugby Club, The Scarlets and Worcester Warriors and we are very fortunate that Rob is now passing on his skills and inspiring our children at Stoke Park.
