National Runners-up in Rugby Sevens!

Posted on : May 11, 2018

On Thursday 10th May  Sligo Grammar School U17 Rugby Sevens team returned home from an All Ireland Schools Sevens Finals as National runners-up. The team travelled to Terenure College RFC, Dublin to represent Connacht along with three other schools from the province and proceeded to beat all comers until they were finally vanquished by St Muirdeachs, Ballina. In an exhausting day of matches they beat Drogheda Grammar School, Nenagh CBS, Marist College, Athlone and Ballingcollig Community School. The team played magnificently well but by the time the final match came along sheer exhaustion and a mere 10 minutes break between the final group game and the tournament final played a part in their ultimate defeat. Overall it was a great experience and the tournament was well organised by the IRFU. The players are looking forward to the 2018/19 season.  Well done to team captain Andrew Ward and his squad. A big thank-you to Mr Gavin and Mr Staunton for taking them to the competition.
