1st Team 7s Rugby : Match Report
The 7’s season came to an end with DHS hosting our annual DHS Twizza Rugby Sevens Tournament.
Despite a few disruptions during the week preventing us from fielding a full squad, the boys still came out to training with a true DHS attitude and mind-set, ready to tackle the challenge ahead.
The boys started Day 1 extremely well, with an impressive 27-0 win in wet conditions against a formidable St Charles team.
The next day was always going to be a tough task, having to start off facing the tournament favourites, Westville, where we narrowly went down 19-10 in a contest which could have gone either way.
The team ended off the pool stages in 2nd place, meaning a cup semi-final clash against a highly rated Northwood outfit, who were winners of Pool A. The boys really stepped it up and put in a mesmerizing performance, to which Northwood simply had no answer, and School recorded a 26-12 victory.
However, the win did come at a cost as we lost one of our key players to an injury, leaving us with 9 players for the Cup final encounter against Westville.
The boys, unfortunately, went down in a 14-7 nail biter. I take my hat off to the boys, who, despite only having 8 fully fit players, showed tremendous character throughout the game, putting their bodies on the line and fighting to the very end for each other.
There is no shortage of DHS pride and passion within these gentlemen. We can look forward with great excitement to how these boys will develop for the 2020 rugby season.
