The A team won their first two games against Priors Mill and Wolviston winning 3-0. Unluckily they went on to lose their third game against Billingham South (0-1). Team A successfully made it through to the semi-finals where they came up against a very well organised and determined St Paul’s Team. Unfortunately they lost 0-1. Both teams showed so much courage, heart and determination in very cold condition. Well done Girls!

Team 1: After a tough start to the competition (1 Loss and 1 Draw) Roseberry started to demonstrate their fantastic fluent movement and precise passing skills. Team 1 went on to win their remaining 4 games very convincingly and went on to play Priors Mill 1 in the semi-finals. After having much of the possession and applying lots of pressure to score, Priors Mill broke away to take a 3-0 lead. After much determination Roseberry brought the score back to 3-1, with Priors Mill scoring in the last ten seconds of the game. Result: Semi Finalist. (3rd Overall)

Team 2: Showed so much resilience and determination in some very competitive and tough games. They showed respect, honesty and amazing teamwork thorough the competition. Result: DNQ (6th Overall)


Team 3: This team was made up of just Year 5 children and were a true force to be reckoned with. After winning their first game 11-0 they went on to win the cup, staying unbeaten, scoring 36 tries and only conceding 3 in 8 games. WOW! What a fantastic achievement.


Well done to all the children and support staff who attended the Billingham Tag Rugby Finals, they were a credit to the school.
