CLUB RUGBY

S1: Sunday was a great day for the BATs S1s who took a trip over the border to play in a fixture against a strong Ponteland side, who they had previously met and played as P7s on their Windermere tour. A full and in-depth match report of this 17-try fixture can be found here.

BATs S1 v Ponteland U13

Wednesday training, S1-U18: Wednesday night saw another great session with an increase in the numbers from the older age groups, as well as our ever-loyal S1s. The session involved work on tackle technique and offloading to increase our game speed. NB there will not be a Wednesday evening skills session for the next two weeks due to the October break.

SCHOOLS

Trinity Academy: The U18s hosted a strong North Berwick side at home on Saturday. The visitors were undoubtedly the stronger side but some sloppy play from the home side left them walking away with a heavier than necessary defeat. However, every cloud has its silver lining – some of the Trinity Academy boys were making their debuts and they gave standout performances.

There are no matches this weekend due to the October break.

Broughton High School: We have been running rugby sessions for the lower age groups at Broughton during curricular PE. The current group is one week in and we look forward to seeing how far they will develop.

Primary Schools: This week we have continued our work with Trinity, Flora Stevenson and Ferry Hill primaries under the coaching of Ben Appleson and Paul Little. Happily, the enthusiasm of the pupils continues.

OCTOBER CAMPS

It is not too late to book places on our October camps. Full details and booking form here.
