U8B Rugby v King Henry VIII
Date: Friday 30th November
Result: BCS 60- 50 KH
Most Valued Player: Wilfred Crow-Marcetic & Jackson Bennett – great support play and running with the ball. Harry Fraser – fantastic work in defence, taking opposition tags.
Report: A fantastic team performance, the boys played really well in their first inter-school fixture. The Blue Coat boys showed good evasive skills, running hard at the King Henry defence and looking for the space. As the game progressed the boys got better at supporting the ball carrier and being on their shoulder to receive the next pass. In defence the boys worked hard to take tags and stay onside. Lots of learning, lots of fun and a great afternoon of tag rugby.

U8C Rugby vs King Henry VIII
Date: Friday 30th November
Result: BCS 45 – 40 KH
Report:
A very excitable Year 3 team travelled away to King Henry’s for their first inter school game of rugby. The boys stepped up to the challenge and displayed a confident performance with some excellent displays of tackling and attacking running with the ball. All the boys were able to display some terrific rugby skills and started to further develop their understanding of the game more. A special mention to Jonty Scurlock for his terrific leadership skills on the pitch.

U8D Rugby v King Henry VIII
Date: Friday 30th November
Result: BCS 50 – KH 30
Most Valued Player: Zayn Ahmed and Jacob Romano
Report: Fantastic team performance and first run out for the U8s. The pitch size was perfect to have enough evasive running, yet promote excellent tackling. Adam Abdul-Galeel and Joey Zhu really injected pace and direct running to the game and kept Blue Coat pushing forward. Karam Gill and Jacob Romano certainly have an eye for the tag, with fantastic team defence. My favourite try was from a restart – Zayn Ahmed seeing a gap right through the heart of King Henry and taking his chance with two superb side steps. Great fun.

U9 A Rugby Festival
Date: Tuesday 4th December
Report: The U9A team showed just how much they had progressed with some fine performances against strong opposition in Kings Hawford, Solihull and Eversfield. THe first game against Hawford was a close affair where we made more passes and scored some great tries but missed a few to many tackles losing narrowly. The 2nd game against Eversfield was a really good game which could have gone either way. The tackling on the whole was much better but so was Eversfield’s and in the end they edged a close game 3-1. The last game against Solihull was a much looser affair with both teams showing signs of fatigue. Both teams offloaded and supported well and the game finished 4-4. A great way to finish and a fair result. Well done to all of the players throughout the term, their effort and commitment has been excellent and I look forward to working with them again!
