10-11am Hardball cricket (for pupils in lower school with hardball experience)
11-12pm Hardball cricket (for pupils with significant hardball experience)
Please note, whilst the boys are expected to attend School fixtures over Club fixtures, this is not the case with practices so if you have matches elsewhere it is your decision whether you attend practices or not.
St Mary's College Rugby Section embarked on what will become a bi-annual whole school European Rugby tour in the February half-term.
51 boys, four staff and a Doctor took the lads to Lisbon, Portugal for a fun-packed six days. An under 13, 15 and 1st XV played three games each against strong club opposition. We recorded four wins over all with all teams winning their last match against RC Moita.
It was a hectic but unbelievably fun itinerary. All of the lads experienced surfing in the Atlantic, beach rugby, a tree adventure activity, swimming, watched Portugal v Poland Rugby, trained at the National Rugby Centre, ten-pin bowled, quizzed visited Benfica Stadium and did a site-seeing trip of Lisbon.
Special thanks to Julie Thomas, Bill Noon, Tom Manley and Dr Paul Thomas who were wonderful looking after the pupils on such a physically demanding trip. Also,
Many thanks to the parents who afforded them this wonderful opportunity. All of the lads were fantastic and hopefully have memories to treasure forever.
