BATs’ Review 16 May 2016


Wednesday 18 May

  • ACE Academy, RAF Hall, 6pm


Details of our mid-week touch rugby sessions will be communicated soon.


Trinity Academy:

It was the Trinity Academy S2s’ turn at the state school sevens last Friday. They came away victorious, having eased their way into the final by beating Royal High, Lasswade and Liberton, and then comfortably defeating Portobello, on their home turf, to secure the tournament win.

The S2s’ result means Trinity Academy is now occupying the top spot on the state school sevens circuit, with just one week to go. The S1s’ tournament is this week at Meggetland (Boroughmuir RFC).

Friday saw the best turn out yet for the S4-S6 pre-tour training, with the pupils really working hard for each other and on the set tasks. There were five stations, which each group spent five minutes at, with a three-minute recovery run between every station. The stations included resistance running, teamwork fitness, sprints, fitness relays and bodyweight conditioning. The great weather helped boost the spirits and the group cohesion is coming along nicely.

Kaimes School:

Last week saw Kaimes School return to Raeburn Place for another training session with Trust Rugby International. Our BATs’ MA Gregor Devine helped with breaking down the tackle using the tackle bags and then organising a game of touch to get the group running around and understanding passing the ball backwards. The session once again finished with some kicking practice and it is safe to say the group did not need Gregor’s help with that!
