Girls TAG Rugby

What a fantastic afternoon for our first Girls-only Tag Rugby competition on Friday 19th October and we were thrilled to have England prop Heather Kerr and Mowden Sharks Beth Blacklock present to inspire the girls, answer questions and lead skill sessions – as well as presenting the medals and trophies!

Teams from 9 schools attended and played rounds of competitive games with the resulting Abbey (1st) and Mount Pleasant (2nd) teams gaining qualification to represent Darlington at the Tees Valley finals on Tuesday 23rd October in Middlesbrough. St Mary’s Cockerton were 3rd and Heathfield 4th; these teams only separated by ‘goal’ difference! A great standard of rugby and amazing atmosphere from all.

Congratulations to Springfield who were awarded our School Games Values PASSION Award

Well done to everyone for a truly wonderful competition
