On an unexpectedly warm sunny day for October, the Under 11B team travelled down to Melrose to play a rugby match against St Mary’s. The boys got off to a strong start with a try in the first minute. They then managed to execute some great tackles and win the ball back from the opposition but lost it through a knock on shortly after. This pattern continued for a few more minutes until the boys eventually settled down and the ball moved more easily through the hands. Cargilfield continued to attack strongly and by half time had bagged a number of tries. As good as the attack was, the defence was just as impressive with all members of the team contributing to the tackling and exerting pressure at every ruck. A wild kick allowed St Mary’s to build a successful attack which resulted in a try but the boys fought back to score three more times before the close of play. Tries were scored by Ollie, Harry and Matthew. The final score was 8 tries to 1.
