For the last few months, Dave, a rugby coach from the Dartfordians in Bexley, visted the Academy to train Year 7 to Year 10 boys. We started every session with some fitness then practiced our passing and rucking skills. At the end of the session we would get into teams and play a game. Over the last few months we have been preparing to play our first match.
On Tuesday 4 March 2014, Mrs Pressney took our Year 9 and 10 combined Academy rugby team to Dartfordians rugby club to play St Columbas School. We won 25-15 despite Bradley Smith from Year 11 playing for the other team and scoring them 10 points.
The students were very good, never giving up and always trying their hardest. We are hoping that we will be able to play more games against them and other schools in the future.
