Once again, West Leigh has excelled in the Southend Yr 5/6 Tag Rugby Finals continuing the school’s magnificent record!
During the course the tournament, they played 10 games and impressively won all 10 ultimately being crowned champions.
In the morning, they played four games in the group stage:
West Leigh 8 - 0 Friars
West Leigh 5 – 1 Darlinghurst
West Leigh 6 - 0 Barons Court
West Leigh 5 - 3 Bournes Green
Following these great results, they joined the second stage playing in a group of 5 as part of the ‘Super 10s’. The standard of competition was raised and so too was the team’s performance level as they transferred what they had learned into competitive situations.
West Leigh 5 - 0 Bournemouth Park
West Leigh 6 – 3 Earls Hall
West Leigh 7 – 4 Chalkwell
West Leigh 8 – 2 Heycroft
Continuing with their 100% record, they prepared for a semi-final yet the team felt, even though they had played amazingly well, that there was room for improvement, particularly in defence, and gave their everything in the semi-final.
West Leigh 7 – 2 Fairways
West Leigh 7 – 3 Earls Hall
The entire squad ended the day as better players having made wonderful progress defensively and in their direct attacking style. They will now have the chance to pit their skills against the best teams from Essex when they attend the Essex Finals in March.
