Tag Rugby victory for St Paul's!

Tuesday evening saw the finals of the School Games Tag Rugby competition, ran by Tameside School Sports Partnership, take place at Ashton Rugby Club. From an initial 61 teams, only 20 were able to qualify for the finals, making it a very close and competitive affair.

St Paul's, Manchester Road, Yew Tree and Moorside all endured successful group stage campaigns, winning their respective groups and progressing to the semi-finals. 

St Paul's ran out 4-1 winners over Manchester Road, meaning they would play Moorside in the final, after a tense 3-2 victory over challengers Yew Tree. 

The final, also a very close encounter, saw St Paul’s take home the gold medal. A try in the last seconds of the game meant they reigned victorious over opponents Moorside, with a final result of 3-2. 

Both St Paul’s and Moorside will now progress to the School Games County finals in March, where they will represent Tameside against the likes of Wigan and Trafford. The School Games is the government's strategy for school age competition and offers a variety of competitive experiences.  

Thank you to Ashton Rugby Club, Aldwinians Rugby Club and Dukinfield Rugby Club for allowing us to use their pitches throughout the competition. Also - a big thanks to all teachers and coaches for their continued support and, most importantly, their enthusiasm. Now time to prepare for the hockey…
