BATs U16s v Livingston:
Friday night saw the U16s once again at Murrayfield, this time to do battle for the East Regional Bowl against a strong Livingston side. The ‘Friday night lights’ game did not disappoint the loyal parents and supporters who attended. The game was a to-and-fro affair, with both teams matching each other’s scores with their own. A strong performance from the whole squad with standout efforts from the captain, Jamie Miller, who made a tremendous scoring break, Finlay Bendit and Max Blacklock. However, it was Livingston who finally edged the victory: BATs 22-29 Livingston.
This was the last week of a full timetable for 4th, 5th and 6th years at the Trinity School of Rugby, as the pupils are now on exam leave. The S3s have been preparing for their state school sevens tournament at Meggetland on Friday. This up and coming young team have worked exceptionally hard under the watchful eye of BATs’ MA Gregor Devine, who has spent the last six weeks working on their sevens rugby knowledge and individual skills, such as their passing over distance and their one-on-one contact skills.
Later this year Trinity Academy are taking three hockey and two rugby teams to South Africa, where they will play in a series of games against various schools. Two senior BATs coaches are accompanying the tour to assist with the rugby boys. The touring pupils, from a mix of S4, S5 and S6, have begun tour fitness training on Fridays after school. The teachers and coaches are creating a fun but hard working environment for the group to work in.
There will be more news on the approaching tour in the coming weeks.
