Our Year 9 rugby team acquitted themselves well in the annual Rugby 7s tournament in Monmouth
For the second year running, Severn Vale entered a team in the annual Rugby 7s tournament held at Monmouth Comprehensive School. This is a very competitive event, playing teams who have a lot more 7s experience.
On a glorious late spring day, our Year 9s acquitted themselves well. In a tough group, with both the eventual winners and runners up, they finishing third. They then defeated the hosts 15 - 10 in a tense, hard fought semi-final to progress to the Plate final. Here, they came up against a strong Newbridge team and were narrowly beaten 25 - 15.
Throughout the event the boys demonstrated an excellent attitude and represented the school superbly.
St Johns (overall winners) lost 15 - 10
St Julians (overall runners up) lost 35 - 5
Newport High - won 45 - 0
Monmouth B - won 55 - 0
Abersychan - won 50 - 0
Monmouth A - won 15 - 10
Newbridge - Lost 25 -15
