We added this age group to our ever growing hosting of rugby festivals and to great success. Bablake, Bilton Grange, Wolverhampton Grammar Junior and Bromsgrove were in attendance. All pupils managed to play everyone in games that were played 14 minutes one way. The pitches held up superbly and it’s a testament to our outstanding grounds staff that prepared them in tough conditions. The A team group was incredible, with matches being tied and Blue Coat holding their own against some well known rugby playing schools. In the B team schedule Blue Coat dominated with excellent support play and aggressive defending. We always look forward to our U9s with the transitional contact and some of our boys look ready! The C&D team had extended games with one less school, and wow did they perform. Comparing us, it was clear to see superb understanding of game play and a positive run forward attitude.
