Bronze Medal for CSSP Tag RugbyTuesday, 04 April, 2017
The school is very proud of their performance
Following their fantastic efforts in the District Tag Rugby earlier this term, our U11s travelled to St Ives for the next round of the competition against the winners from other Cambridgeshire districts.
The team was apprehensive - this was a step-up in competition and they didn't know what to expect. The opening ceremony was a really special experience and it was great to hear from international athletes for inspiration. CIS started the competition well, winning their first three group games, with some flowing rugby and outstanding support play. Confidence was high and the tenacious team fought through to the semi-finals where they were defeated by a single try. The team headed to the Bronze Medal play-off match, determined to bring the medal home.
A great and even match meant the play went into extra time and 'golden try'. CIS managed to snatch the try and deserved to take the Bronze Medal. A fantastic achievement. The team showed what can be done with hard work, team work and opportunities. The school is very proud of their performance. Well done.(Mr Salt)
