TWELVE schools took part in this year’s Lowestoft & Beccles Schools’ Sports Partnership U11 Tag Rugby tournaments.

Tag Rugby is a mixed seven-a-side game whereby teams must have a minimum of three boys and three girls playing at all times.

The first tournament, for North Lowestoft Schools, was held on Tuesday, March 27 at Lowestoft & Yarmouth Rugby Club. Here four schools, Roman Hill Primary, Poplars Primary, Woods Loke Primary and Corton Primary each played one another on a league basis.

The final league game, between Roman Hill Primary and Poplars Primary also happened to be the league decider. It was Roman Hill who emerged as worthy winners, beating Poplars 13-9.

The day after, eight schools took part in the South Lowestoft & Beccles schools’ tournament which was held at Carlton Colville Primary School.

This time the participating schools were placed into two leagues with league winners and runners-up progressing through to the semi-finals.

These saw Worlingham Middle play Meadow Primary and Beccles Middle play Carlton Colville Primary. Amazingly both semi-finals finished level at full-time and had to be decided by a sudden-death first-to-score decider. It was Meadow and Beccles who eventually went through to contest a close final which Meadow Primary won 5-3.

Both Meadow Primary and Roman Hill Primary Schools will now go through to the county finals in April.

Many thanks to Lowestoft & Yarmouth RFC and Carlton Colville Primary School for hosting the competitions and also to LYRFC for assisting with match refereeing.
