Rugby Trip 2018

Posted on : October 9, 2018

In the early hours of Friday 5th October the Senior Rugby team set out on a team bonding and training trip to Portugal. They were accompanied by Mr Staunton and Mr Gavin. The purpose of the trip was to help forge a strong bond within the team as well as to experience different approaches to training and building skills. The team played 2 matches, winning both. The first match was Rugby Sevens which SGS won easily. In the second Rugby Union match the score was 19 for SGS to 14 for Directos, Lisbon. As well as training sessions the team went to an outdoor activity centre where they climbed and used zip-wires, and on Tuesday, their final day they went for a “recovery” session in the sea! The weather was fantastic and the whole experience was one to remember! Photos are HERE
