Year 10 Girls and Boys Rugby Teams from Farlingaye High School both win county championships

A Suffolk school is celebrating a double victory for its rugby teams.

The girls’ year 10 rugby team at Farlingaye High School, in Woodbridge, was only formed this year but has already triumphed in the County Cup, playing matches against Thomas Mills, County Upper and Thurston, before beating Copleston in the final.

Meanwhile, the year 10 boys also won the county tournament, beating Felixstowe, Hadleigh and Copleston before beating King Edward VI and Hartismere. They only conceded one try in total and scored more than 200 points.

Both teams benefitted from some of the students playing for Woodbridge, however lots of the team members play only for the school.

Head teacher Sue Hargadon said that all the players had made excellent contributions to the team and that their efforts in training and games had seen them make outstanding progress.

It’s been a relief somewhat to not have to worry about the thought of an Ipswich game over the weekend and for someone that really dislikes a blank weekend because on an international break, it’s an indication of how bad things are right now.

It’s been a dismal season for Ipswich Town fans and it could yet get worse.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.

Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith has told a newspaper in New Zealand that he is 100% committed to playing for the national team, ahead of the All Whites’ World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.
