Sunday saw the U16s train ahead of their away game against Madras this coming weekend. There was a good turnout, with the lads working hard with their coaches on different tackle techniques and handling skills under pressure. The same group had training on Wednesday evening to go through some team shape before the game on Sunday.

The S1s played their return fixture against Heriot's at Goldenacre on Sunday. It was a determined effort by the whole squad, with excellent team sprit on display. Read the full match report here.

Wednesday night saw a continuation of the large number of S1s who have been training, with ten schools represented. This week the boys were working in small groups to look at tackle height and shoulder contact through exercises and games.

Tuesday saw the P7s training hard with Simon Hodgson. This week’s focus was footwork pre-contact to look at soft edges and beginning to look at some team plays and structures.

Broughton High School

We are delivering a curriculum block to the S1s at Broughton High School, looking at the basics of rugby and developing their skills and abilities to allow them to play full contact games. The current group are coming on in leaps and bounds. The group we were coaching pre-Christmas will have another block of rugby after the February break.

The afterschool club for S1s is now underway on Mondays, 15.30-16.30, on the school’s grass pitch.

Trinity Academy

The School of Rugby has seen us continuing to use the school’s facilities to run conditioning and body management in the fitness suite, followed by the second half of each lesson outside working on specific skills under fatigue.
