Congratulations to the Year 8 Rugby Team on becoming Bristol Champions. A last minute try against a physical Orchard Academy team in their first game ensured an opening victory and set up a ‘winner-takes-all’ showdown with Fairfield. Finding themselves 15-5 down at half-time the boys came out for the second period focused and determined to take the game to their skilful opponents. As the game wore on Ashton began to dominate procession and levelled the scores with two quick tries. Powerful rucking and incisive kicking set up an excellent try to send Ashton in front before they made the game safe with a late try to cap a superb team performance. There was much to admire in the way the team galvanized themselves against strong opposition and moved the ball around the pitch to create scoring opportunities. Well done all involved!
