Tuesday 10th September.
Rugby. The under 14 boys team travelled to Edenderry RFC to play their under 14s. We scored tries in the first half through two scores from Jude and one from Kwaku. They were added to in the second half through ‘Match Captain’ Kevin and James.
Up front Finn, Kevin and Jamie were excellent while Rowland, Callum and Elliott were good in the backs.
Jude was Man of the Match. Playing at inside centre he was electric with two lengths of the field tries and a never say die try saving tackle late in the first half.
Special mention to Harry, Callum, George and Killian who made their debuts for the school. Well done boys!
Wednesday 11th September.
Rugby. WHS 1st Year Boys rugby team hosted hear neighbours St Finian's College in an early season friendly. For many of the first year boys this was their first game of contact rugby with only five of the boys having played with rugby clubs before joining Wilson's.
Both teams scored plenty of tries in what was a very exciting game. It was decided that the game would be 10 players aside and half pitch to allow both sets of players plenty of time on the ball and the opportunity for lots of contact.
Killian, Callum and John scored tries in the first 20 minutes with Ignacio, Jake and Alex making some great runs.
In the second 20 minutes George, Josh and Callum again got on the score sheet while Yaw and Jack worked hard in defence.
The final 20 minutes went score for score. Samuel, Ignacio and Jake made telling contributions in both defence and attack.
In the end, St Finian’s won by 2 tries. This was an excellent run out for both teams and everyone who took the pitch yesterday played very well. The first years are away to St Micheal's next Wednesday. Keep up the good work.
