OUR rugby players had a busy time, after winning the Norwich 10s the previous week.

On Thursday the college supplied the RFU with referees for the Emerging Schools Tournament at Thetford Rugby Club. Well over 300 pupils competed to go through to the regional finals at Bishop's Stortford. Our lads also refereed a rugby day for schoolboy teams at Diss RUFC and a Tag Rugby Round Robin contest at Sudbury RUFC.

Two teams of our players enjoyed a 7s Tournament at Hills Road College in Cambridge, an afternoon of good quality 7s.

This week, they took part in the prestigious Cambridge 7s at Cambridge RUFC. This was a warm-up for the game against the Sale Academy, based at Myerscough, next week.

Team Bury also had a busy week, with two matches. On Wednesday they defeated Little Oakley 2-1 under the floodlights at Ram Meadow. Overall it was a poor showing from Team Bury and we were fortunate to be ahead at half-time through Stuart Walker. Team Bury doubled their lead soon after the break, but the visitors from Essex made it a nervy last few minutes when they reduced the arrears with five minutes to go. However, Team Bury held on for another three points.

It was a similar scoreline on Saturday, when Team Bury travelled to Alresford. The scores were level at half-time at 1-1; Steve O'Neill was the Team Bury goal scorer. The second half was fairly unspectacular but we managed to eke out another win when Craig Nurse netted on the hour mark.

In the Colleges league, West Suffolk College shared six goals with Lincoln College. It was disappointing not to take all three points as we had led 3-1 with fifteen minutes remaining. Zak Shaw (two) and Max Kirby were the College marksmen.

The girls were without a fixture, but have been working hard on the training ground in preparation for the BCS (British Colleges Sport) East Region Cup Final against Long Road yesterday. News on this match next week.
