The Copthorne under 8 A’s played their first fixture after coming back from the half term break in great assertiveness. Copthorne hosted their opposition Hurst School on a good day for tag rugby. Playing Hurst for a second time this season the boys were looking for a different result to the one in the initial occasion these two schools met. Following one half of quality tag rugby filled with plenty of chances the two teams stood evenly matched at 4 try’s a piece. With the advantage of going downhill in the first half gone, it was essential that the Copthorne boys improved their standard of play to come out on top on this match. Subsequently by way of some great whole field runs Copthorne was ignited into action and with a lead established Copthorne consolidated their position in the match. Ultimately the score finished up 11-9 in favor of a Copthorne triumph.
Well done to everybody in the squad consisting of Joseph Cummins, Luca Plater, Charlie Renshaw, Jacob Henderson, Jamie Hannah, Sam Sypher, Gus Pennisi and Ben Bigwood. JB
