Y7 Gateshead Rugby Union Championship

Mr Davidson took the Y7 Rugby Squad to Gateshead RFC to take part in the Gateshead School Tournament on Wednesday night. Five local schools had entered teams and they were all scheduled to play each other in a round robin style tournament.

The JSA team managed to defeat Kingsmeadow and Lord Lawson in their first two games. After a close defeat by Whickham, the team then played Cardinal Hume to decide who would win the Bronze or Silver medals. It was a hard fought game but our outstanding JSA team managed to take the Silver!

Mr Davidson was very impressed by the brave tackling and hard running that the squad displayed throughout the tournament, and he was especially proud of those team members who were new to rugby. They followed the lead of the more experienced players and listened well to their coaches and PE teachers in the build up to the event and throughout the tournament. They were a real credit to the Academy.
