U9B Rugby v Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School
Tuesday 18 October
Blue Coat School 45 – 50 WGJS
Most Valued Player: Charlie Collyer

A fantastic game of rugby against a strong Wolverhampton side saw BCS B team narrowly lose to a WGJS A team. The effort and commitment put in by the team was excellent, with Charlie Collyer outstanding, especially in defence. There were also strong performances from Arya Vemuri, who showed a good turn of speed and good evasion skills, and also James Scurlock, who again put in a number of crucial tackles. To improve, the boys have got to be more confident with the ball and try and run onto the ball at pace.

Wednesday 19 October
Blue Coat 50 – 25 WGJS
Most Valued Player: Henry Trevis for showing commitment in defence.

There was a lack of appetite for the contact amongst the boys and because of this, the first half was closer than it should have been, with Wolverhampton being more aggressive in their running and tackling. In the second half BCS improved by moving the ball better and scoring some good tries on both sides of the pitch but this performance should serve as a reminder than you have to put 100% into every match. We have some tough matches after half term and need everyone to be committed to the contact areas of the game.

U11B Rugby v Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School (A)
Wednesday 19 October
WGJS 9 – 3 Blue Coat
Most Valued Player: Nivid Kharwadkar for strength and speed while running and scoring three tries.

The U11B team travelled to Wolverhampton Grammar for the third game of the season. The boys started well and tackled strongly to keep Wolverhampton in their own half but unfortunately the pressure did not extend to any try scoring opportunities. When we did win the ball back, the passing was not accurate enough to create opportunities. Wolverhampton scored a couple of interception tries to take the game away from us. The try of the game was set up when a scrum afforded us possession on the half-way line and Krishan Patel powered forward before offloading perfectly to Nivid to run in, unopposed, from twenty metres out. At times we played brilliantly but we made too many mistakes to keep the game close. I am sure we will come back stronger after half term.

Blue Coat 40 – 35 WGJS
Most Valued Player: Umar Ahmed for his 5 tries and good support play.

Blue Coat scored first and never relinquished a 1 or 2 try advantage throughout the match. The team performed well, offloading the ball out of contact to ensure continuity, and successfully holding the opposition up. On occasions they even managed to steal the ball from the opposition. A very encouraging result and we look forward to continued success following half term.
