Our rugby players went to the City College Norwich 10s and thoroughly enjoyed a very well organised event.

The tournament provided a great chance for our players to try their hand at 10s, and we fielded two squads - a Red team and a Blue team. The two teams were drawn in separate pools but, as luck and skill would have it, they both got through to the final.

With weary legs to the fore, the game started at a steady if not slow pace, with the Blues winning the first half two tries to nil. Stern words from the coaching staff resulted in a more exciting second half, providing a thrilling final 10 minutes for the tournament. The Red team won the day 20-5.

Coach Nigel Brown said: “The boys thoroughly enjoyed the day and showed some great attacking flair, scoring over 400 points and only conceding 30. To win games by 50 points in two halves of 10 minutes is not an easy task. With Crowley, Jones, Anderson and Robbins contributing over five tries apiece, they were only eclipsed by skipper Tim Mann who led by example scoring a staggering 12 tries.

“The event has been one of the best organised we have attended for a long time and we hope to be able to defend the trophy next year.”

The boys' football squad travelled all the way to Grimsby last Wednesday for a disappointing result in the quarter-final of the English Colleges FA competition. The team did not play to their full potential and we lost the match 2-1, with Craig Nurse scoring our solitary goal.

The girls came away with a more cheering result when they visited Easton College for the East region semi-final of the British Colleges Sport Cup. Our girls cruised through to an 11-1 victory. Simone Scott from Ipswich excelled herself, scoring six of those goals.

We now go through to play Long Road College in the East region final next week.
