Rugby Festival success and sadness

Unfortunately it was with heavy hearts that before the morning qualifiers we announced the tragic news that David Bown, Head Master of St Nicholas School had lost his life in a recent accident. With the permission of his school, SGO David Stacey lead a fitting tribute to a man whose own passion was for rugby. Following a minute’s silence, which was impeccable observed, the morning’s events were dedicated to Mr Bown’s honour – the children did him very proud! Our sincerest condolences were passed to all at St Nicholas on behalf of the Harlow School Sports Partnership.

The conditions were awesome this week (no snow like last year!) and the Harlow Rugby club looked in fabulous condition. Once underway, throughout the day an unbelievable 37 teams (roughly 400 children) descended upon the Harlow Rugby Club for this year’s Tag-Rugby qualifiers for Years 5 and 6. Split over 2 sections, both the morning and afternoon events were very strong and all school’s required little coaching, playing some excellent running rugby. The investment by schools in coaching clearly showed, as the children passed very confidently and ran in some excellent tries.

As ever thanks to the Harlow Rugby Club (Michael Weston) for hosting; the grounds are amazing and the children were clearly inspired by playing at such a marvellous venue. Thanks to David Stacey, Gill Pardoe, Rebecca Lott, Sam Mortimer (Fawbert and Barnard) and Marcus Cattell (SGO Davenant), who officiated to ensure all 68 games were completed.

The results were as follows and the group winners were invited to return on Friday (8thMarch) to play in the finals.
