KS3 Rugby at GMS

KS3 Rugby at GMS

Rugby is a sport that is hugely popular in GMS. In the initial few weeks of the autumn term the school had already built a squad of 23: a mix of experienced rugby players and those new to the game. Sports staff are impressed by the speed, athleticism and skill of all the members.

What better start to the season could be imagined than a superb unbeaten record, including a 10-0 win over local rivals.

In the second half term the rugby teams embarked upon a weekly tournament facing Berkshire schools as rivals. The GMS rugby team were approached and asked to compete in this competition because they were considered to be a have prestigious rugby status. Last year the team finished 3rd against some outstanding competition. This year’s U12 team are keen to do well.

Of course, to compete at a high standard, students have to be trained by experts. In GMS teacher and trainer Mr Goodright is ably assisted by expert rugby player and Year 12 student Will Drewitt.

Rugby in Year 8 has a strong following; the squad has built on the strengths of the Year 7 training and successes on the field of play. Week after week the lads have worked hard to improve their game by adapting their skill, knowledge and expertise to the 13 a side game: a move from the 10 a side game played by the Year 7s.

The Year 8 side are coached by Mr Goodright and Freddie Lewis: a sixth former, who continues to show a natural aptitude for this particular sport. His assistance is very much appreciated by the students and staff.
